BY THE PRESLEYS (2-DVD SET)
public Elvis is well known, but the private Elvis remains
"Elvis By The Presley's" 2-DVD set released on 23rd
May 2005 will change that. Fans are granted an unprecedented
understanding of the Presley family, with unhindered
access into the archives of the Elvis Presley estate,
coupled with extensive new interviews with both Priscilla
and Lisa Marie plus rare performance footage of the
King at his best.
four and a half hours of footage make the DVD "Elvis
By The Presley's" arguably the most revealing and poignant
video portrait we will ever see of the artist as husband,
father and friend. The program grants access to his
life like a glimpse into a family album, beginning with
"Elvis: Meets Priscilla" a chance for Priscilla to recall
her story of meeting Elvis in Germany.
restored audio of Elvis speaking is inter-cut with Priscilla
as they chronicle their lives together for the first
care free days at Graceland and In Los Angeles are painted
with fantastic home movies. This revealing footage shows Elvis
as a playful family man, building snow men, snowmobiling,
riding horses, swimming, water skiing and hamming it up for
the camera. These were perhaps the happiest times for all.
the documentary turns a corner, Priscilla reveals the realities
of a Hollywood relationship and her efforts to win over Elvis
completely, sacrificing her own ambitions and desires for
the security of their relationship.
rare interviews, Elvis talks candidly about women and dating
and the pressure he felt to remain single for his public image.
As we watch Lisa Marie grow, she shares more and more of her
earliest memories of life at Graceland as a kid; the big southern
dinners, the menagerie of pets, the wild games, the late nights
at the movie theatre, and of course, what it was like having
Elvis as a father.
After Dark" is a deeply moving segment featuring Lisa Marie
and Priscilla speaking about Elvis' spiralling drug use and
his ultimate death. The story of his demise has never been
so poignant and heartbreaking as we heat it told by those
who were affected the most.
final segment "Elvis: Forever" documents Elvis' legacy as
it continues to grow and in the wake of his passing other
Presley's have stepped up to the plate, proudly carrying on
his name and keeping his voice in the public ear. Elvis' daughter
and grandchildren would have made him proud and the documentary
ends on a high note as we see a great future for Elvis with
no end to the success of the Presley's. Alongside the deluxe
