There are many books published about "Private Presley" but a comprehensive video documentary about our man as "Soldier Boy" is missing - until now:
Tripod Pictures Ltd presents: "Soldier Boy 53 310 761" starring Elvis Presley.
We begin our journey at the Kennedy Veteran Hospital where Elvis gets his first medical examinations to determine his draft status in January 1957. Of course, the well-known solemn promise scene and the "Operation Haircut" is included, too. There are private moments where Elvis can be seen with Anita Wood at Eddie Fadal's home. Be there when Elvis leaves the troop train to enter the U.S.S. Randall; see him arriving in Bremerhaven, Germany; Private Presley is the VIP on numerous press conferences and interviews e.g. with Dick Clark / American Bandstand. Experience Elvis on the grounds of the Ray Barracks or join the "King" during his trip to Paris, France. Unfortunately, Elvis was not home when Cliff Richard was visiting Goethestrasse 14 in Bad Nauheim, but the footage proves that he tried to say ,hello'. You'll get newsreel reports & the trailer for "G.I. Blues" - Elvis' first motion picture after the army.
A special never before released clip shows the unveiling of the memorial bust which was installed in front of the ,Hotel Grunewald" in Bad Nauheim to honor Elvis' stay in that city. This factory pressed DVD is a labour of love, compiled carefully to present the full story of Elvis and his military tour of duty. The DVD also features a booklet with additional information about dates & locations of the featured clips.
