An inspired idea, get Elvis' movies on TV more and make him and his fans a laughing stock to the general public. I have all of the movies on DVD so can watch them whenever I want, something I can also do with the soundtracks to his final films which get demanded every five seconds. They were featured on the excellent "Double Features" series and will eventually get the FTD upgrade, what is the hurry? Somebody always complained that "He Touched Me" and "Promised Land" had not been given the deluxe treatment but now they have, no mention, just this constant talk of this soundtrack compilation.

i must be weird, I like alot of the movies of Elvis ... King Creole, J H Rock, Loving You, Roustabout, Double Trouble, Spinout, Change of Habit, LALLALittle, ... i watch how Elvis seems to be tounge in cheek in most of them. like he knows all too well the story lines and dialouge are basically crap. Harum Holiday shows this up to full extent. You can see him having a laugh and really not taking it all that serious. Tickle Me also ; )

Not all Elvis fans are the same, and I think that's a good thing. I've followed Elvis since 1956, saw him in person fresh off the Dorsey Bros. Shows. Also enjoyed most of his Vegas years. With the exception of Jail House & King Creole, I couldn't stand his other movies. (I liked the documentaries tho.) So, a lot of us think differently about our man. But again, I feel thats a healthy thing.

The Grammy museum is a nice idea after all Elvis was truly the only lasting rock & roll movie star. But most of the movies are bad and silly. The 1st 4 are good, the first 3 after the Army , FTD & Viva, and that's it. And many non-Elvis fans cannot even sit through those so there certainly is a limited appeal. You have to like Elvis! I cannot watch any of the others ones for more than 10 mins. I dont count the documentaries.

Good! To be honest, I really enjoy the majority of the Elvis movies. To be more precise, from Love Me Tender to Viva Las Vegas and from Speedway to Change of habit. The only movies I don't like are from Kissin' cousins to Clambake, with an exception for Roustabout. 21 out of 29 being enjoyable is not that bad a score. I think some fans are generalizing all his movies on the basis of some really crap movies like Double trouble and Harum scarum.
