This Is Elvis (FTD news)

This Is Elvis (FTD news)

FTD will release an extended soundtrack of this movie in March 2015.

What accounted for his undeniable mystique? The answer is contained in a remarkable biography, written on film instead of the printed page –– This Is Elvis –– a David L. Wolper Production of an Andrew Solt/Malcolm Leo Film for Warner Bros. release. Written, directed and produced by Solt and Leo (best known for their television special Heroes OF Rock and Roll). The film follows innovations first introduced by producer Wolper, whose 650 films include the Emmy-winning Roots and the Oscar winning The Hellstrom Chronicle. With the unprecedented cooperation of those who best new Presley, the film combines rare, never-before-seen footage, privately owned kinescopes from TV’s early years, remarkable outtakes from Presley’s movies and accurate recreations of pivotal moments in his life.
