Dir. John Carpenter
Rating: [PG]

Aroview: Made just two years after Elvis's death, the king of rock 'n' roll's life is traced from dirt poor beginnings to becoming the most loved entertainer of the twentieth century - staying clear of his eventual decline.

Marks the first pairing of Carpenter and Russell, and though it's initially hard to imagine, Russell delivers an electric, chameleon-like performance in this largely enjoyable film.
