Elvis: The Hollywood Years
This comprehensive guide to Elvis Presley's career on film and TV analyses the King's every celluloid appearance, including his 33 films, documentaries, TV appearances, tributes, biopics and retrospectives. Accompanying this exhaustive study is a biography of the legend and a complete filmography. Elvis: The Hollywood Years uncovers a wealth of previously unpublished material and presents photographs from the author's personal collection. In his research, the author delves into the archives to reveal what really happened behind the scenes or when the cameras stopped rolling; the cat fights with directors and co-stars. The truth regarding the relationship between Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis is exposed and the controversial allegations that Presley slept with his own mother, raped his wife, held wild sex and drugs parties and left a fan brain-damaged are explored. This is the essential study of the man who virtually invented rock'n'roll and certainly inspired thousands of impersonators and obsessive fans. Invaluable to anyone with an interest in popular culture.
