Elvis By The Presley's DVD Details

The press release from BMG UK gives details on the upcoming "Elvis By The Presley's" DVD: The public Elvis is well known, but the private Elvis remains a mystery. "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. Over 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. Beautifully restored audio of Elvis speaking is inter-cut with Priscilla as they chronicle their lives together for the first time. Early 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. As 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. In 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. "Elvis: 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. The 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 DVD documentary are a number of special features, including a photo gallery and two exclusive bonus chapters entitled "Elvis: Nixon" and "Elvis: Karate".

Priscilla , Priscilla, she has led the life hasnt she? Once a shy demure schoolgirl to model, tv host and business woman and a fulltime mum. Very disspointed with the book 'elvis & me' though maybe the dvd will be better. Did Elvis really love Priscilla only he can answer that so many conflicting stories supporting and not supporting this theory Did she love him? I think she out grew him.But shes come along way and fair dues to her .

I had no idea that this was a dvd! I thought it was just a book...well I was led to believe that from the Oprah show with Lisa and Priscilla on it. And as for Elvis not being faithful to Priscilla...she knew about all of this before they were married....well that is what she shows to us in Elvis and Me(the book and the movie). And yes she also showed herself having a fling with hers and Elvis' karate instructor. We all know that Elvis was not "perfect." But neither is Priscilla.

Jesse, Of course you can buy this DVD/CD project in Holland. If it isn't in the stores, you surely can buy your copy at the It's Elvis time fanclub. They already spread a flyer of it through the E-mail.

Tony was saying Elvis wasn't true to Priscilla, will she said herself she wasn't true to him either. So whats the big deal?? I've read many times she didn't even cry when he died, she didn't give a damn about him then, but she sure wants to get all the money she can because she was once married to him. Guess in life, or death, which ever money, money, and more money. Its sooooooooo sad!!

I think I will get this dvd. Elvis After Dark looks sad dont know if I will beable to watch that segment. Not because of the drugs its just that you know Elvis is going to die. Thats why I cant read some of the books I usually read the start of them and when I get to the end they are so sad. I never had that problem when I was younger. I must be getting soft in my old age

Let's not forget that Elvis was not faithful to Priscilla for hardly a day during their engagement and marriage. That may have had something to do with her leaving and divorcing Elvis. As for the drug taking being out of control, it was like that a lot earlier than most of us ever imagined, even before they was married.

Great - this is coming from the woman who divorced Elvis and led to his spiraling out of control, and the daughter who sold his name / likeness at a bargain basement price. I can't wait to hear how much they cared for him. Not.

We all want to know the real Elvis.We buy the books and the CDs religiously and try to fathom why we idolise a human being that, by his own admission, was less than perfect. Suddenly people who were around him at the time divulge their pearls of wisdom and we pounce on them (buying) every last detail and ignoring the negative and committing to memory the positive to regurgitate at every convention and fan club meeting and then we wonder why the general public at large think we are sad? We are part of a movement that was never elitist and never as grounded as for example Frank Sinatra fans ( respect to them ) so we need to come to terms with the fact that we love Elvis for our own reasons and whatever "the family" have to purge themselves of bears no relation to our individual understanding of why we as individuals "get" Elvis. My advice is to listen to his greatest hits and be sure that he was "the King" for these performances and not for any other reasons whatsoever. This docu-soap is as irrelevant as all the other medicine shows.
