Elvis movies. Personally, I’m not a fan of his movies. In fact, neither was he. He wanted to play some serious parts and do some serious acting but the powers to be were hell-bent on light comedy musicals. I guess if you were a teenager when he made his movies and swooned at every lip curl then these movies were the ticket for you. I guess I was just too young to appreciate them.
In 1968 Elvis made a TV special and it was watched by 1.4 million people around the world. More people watched this than the moon walk in 1966.
SiriusXM offers Elvis Radio and it is broadcast live from Graceland.
Everywhere we go Bob gets one of those flattened pennies. He has quite the collection now.
