The latest Elvis movie

Hollywood has revisited the life story of Elvis Presley and the costumes, and sets, are spot on. The movie goes back and forth in time and takes liberties with facts. Some things are just…wrong. But, if it brings an appreciation of Elvis the man, and the performer, then I’m all for it,

Sometimes knowing too much about a topic, as I do Elvis, adversely affects the experience of watching a 2 1/2 hour film. It did in this case.

While no one before, now, or will ever have the looks – the style – the magnetism – the life experiences – how complicated he was – etc of Elvis the actor gives his all. Good for him.

I also think it is not fair to expect a movie to go into the entire career of Elvis which spanned 3 decades.

Most of all this movie made me want to go to the original sources as I continue to appreciate Elvis onstage and off as I have these 7 decades.

Take care and may God bless you and yours always.
