The documentary 200 Cadillacs will have its world premier, (after a successful private screening at Graceland on August 13 during Elvis Week ceremonies), at the FilmColumbia Festival in Chatham, NY on Friday, October 18 at 4:00 PM. The film will open the three day festival at the historic Crandall Theater and will be followed, at 8:00 PM, by an opening night party
featuring artists from the soundtrack and special guests singing their favorite Elvis songs.
The film is a look at the generosity of Elvis Presley and features many people close to the King and the gifts they were given. Filmmakers Dan Griffin, Rex Fowler and Susan Rod Graham traveled the country seeking out the recipients and their stories, many never told before.
300 never before published photographs from the private collections of Sandi Miller, Russ Howe and Tom Salva are interspersed with the stories from Presley’s original band-mate, DJ Fontana, longtime live-in girlfriend Linda Thompson, Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires, Myrna Smith of the Sweet Inspirations, personal nurse Marian Cocke, hairdresser Larry Geller, Karate instructor Kang Rhee, Cadillac salesmen, Mrs. Ed parker, and a few surprise participants recount the stories behind the gifts and personal recollections of King of Rock & Roll. Many never before seen personal photographs of Presley are interspersed with the interviews for the film.
