In his stellar 22 year career, Elvis Presley was regarded as the King of rock ‘n’ roll and the most popular singer the world had ever seen. Now, 30 years after his death, it is easy to forget how important to that career his movies were. Despite being subject to much critical mauling, his films were incredibly popular and included on their soundtracks many songs that went on to become classics. In this commemorative talk, liberally illustrated with clips from the King’s best flicks, Adrian Wootton (CEO of Film London as well as Elvis aficionado and adviser to Turner Classic Movies on their current Elvis film season) will recount the history of Elvis’s extensive career on the silver screen from 1956 to 1973.
