Movie 'Tears Of A King' About The Spiritual Elvis

In the summer of 2007, the movie 'Tears Of A King' will hit the American movie theaters. In stead of yet another biography, this picture will focus on the spiritual side of Elvis that was very prominent in the 70s. The search from Elvis to his believe leads him to the Mormons. This community claims that Elvis was willing to join them thru a baptism, but he never made it. It's highly doubtfull that the movie wil come to the European theaters.

elvis was NOT a morman and he may have "studied" other religions and beliefs due to larry geller and his influence but to claim that elvis was about to become member of the morman church is laughable!-elvis never forgot his christian upbringing right to the very end and to say that he would join a well known religious cult is a damn lie!!-its a known fact that elvis left hand-written noted praying to the lord jesus in his las vegas suite and that he was seeking the lopd for guidance..NOT a religious cult.(it makes by blood boil that the morman church are trying to gain more followeres using the name of elvis presley and this has ti the very bottom of the barrell u have ever seen)

Stanton--I was a part of this film being made. I was there when the writer got the idea to write it and then watched as he researched for six months and put his heart and soul into this film. He believes in it and so do I. I am sure he would love to have it in Europe. And it's not a one track story. It's not just about mormonism. It's about his spiritual journey. About him searching for something higher than himself. Why does it matter what religion it is? Aren't we all here to find ourselves and be better people? That's all this movie is about. I bet if the term 'catholic' had leeked out it wouldn't have been as big a deal as 'mormon'. Mormons are good people just like anyone else. People who believe in something. What's wrong with that?

I doubt they have any interest in showing the movie in Europe; I have asked them as a member of the board of the Elvis Club in Bad Nauheim - Friedberg, if it was possible to get the first shows started over here where we`ll have the European Elvis Festival in August comming up again; but unfortunatelly they didn`t even bother answering my question....? On second thought it ran thru my mind how they get by with their sort of "one track story" - the mormone track? Elvis was - as we all know- christian and besides this very interested and open minded in multiple ways of believes and religions, not one track minded at all....? So, we´ll see: if it comes out I will - of course- try to watch it somewhere somehow.
