Question, the Elvis Suite at the Hilton is no longer. It's now a room for the high rollers. Is this DVD playable in the United States?

Hello . my name is Joe Krein. i am new here. i have the site elvis2001.net . this dvd can only be purchased through me. but first i want to correct a few things. the 900 releases was a errer. there were a 1000 copies made. it was surpose to read . 900 left. but that number is long gone. the DVD has been selling so well. I am sorry to say that it will not be released out side the U.S.A . But we do ship outside the states. so you can purchase it. The video is 77 minutes long. lets see. yes Loanne is Parkers 2nd wife. The first Mrs. Parker died of cancer. I was there in Vegas when the DVD was made. It was the first and last time i saw Al. I am sure the DVD is selling so well because it is the last time Al was interviewed on tape. We were all very upset when we heard what happened. Thank god Ed made it out alright. The DVD may be reprinted . Meaning we will probaly change it in some way or add to it. We also taped the Kraig Parker concert at the Aladdin casino while we were there. There will never be another Elvis but Kraig is close. elvisley yours elvis2001

Teacher, thank you. I've been a member of this site for a couple of years. I read it nearly everyday and am ashamed to say, I never realized the source was actually a link to additional information. This is going to end the frustration I experience every time I read a news article on this site and then can't find ordering info. Thanks again. Btw Crawfish, you can get this DVD too. They ship internationally.

Loanne Parker was Tom Parker's second wife. Parker's first wife Marie died years before.

Would love to get one of these myself. Sounds very interesting. Would love to hear Mrs. Parker's viewpoint on things. I thought her name was Marie? Am I wrong or was that her middle name?
