Elvis: That’s the Way It Is

Film, 1970

Although his constant camera mugging makes it obvious that we’re not seeing what it was really like, it’s kind of interesting watching Elvis behind the scenes preparing for his big comeback concert. At the beginning of rehearsals Elvis seems like he’s still a cool guy, but by the time the night of the big show hits he’s in a white jumpsuit and singing terrible, terrible music. The interviews with his fans present an interesting 70s freak show- the movie probably would have been more entertaining if it had used that as it’s focus. 2
