No Warner DVDs This Year?

An "insider" from Warner Bros. Nederland informed one of our readers that the six planned Elvis DVDs (Kissin' Cousins, Girl Happy, Tickle Me, Stay Away, Joe, Live A Little, Love A Little and Charro) will probably not be released this year, at least not in the Netherlands. More information when we have it.

I hope the picture quality will be better on these dvds when they are released because the other ones i have got have terrible picture quality. I dont own a wide screen tv so i usually zoom into watch them and they look awful !

Does anyone know if the "Elvis Final Days" DVD that was for sale in the Netherlands is for sale here in the USA? I cannot find anything about this 2 CD set! I'd love to see the Geraldo show that was taped after Elvis's death, as well as the last concert!

Well ,I am pretty upset with the negative comments about these six DVD's getting bashed by so called "Elvis fans" if you are truly an elvis fan you would want all of his movies out on DVD regardless whether it was built around a good storyline or around the songs. First off Kissin Cousins has many first rate Elvis movie songs like "There's Gold In the Mountains", "Catchin' On Fast" and Tender Feeling. Barefoot Ballad is rather a fun production number to watch as well. Girl Happy has "Spring Fever" the title tune and "Puppet On A String" which also follows the classic Presley formula. Tickle Me has good songs too like "Such An Easy Question" and "I'm Yours" and "Dirty,Dirty Feeling" is rather a fun song too. The whole ghost town thing is a nice effect. Stay Away Joe is more of a comedy and seeing Elvis play as a full blooded Indian is once again a good performance where the first three mentioned were musical comedies this is mostly just a comedy. Live A Little, Love A Little has a song that these so called " younger generation" Elvis fans would notice called "A Little Less Conversation" also Elvis is a photographer which Elvis has never been casted in a role like that before and there is more on the story line. Charro! will give new and more experienced Elvis fans a chance to see Elvis not sing in this movie the only time you "hear" him sing is through the title credits. I have been an elvis fan for about three years now and I have collected the DVD's and every time I hear about I get excited I get more and more depressed when I hear about these six new DVD's getting delayed or shelving this project for a while I need more of Elvis DVD's I am a U.S. Male and I have 24 of Elvis' movies I DVD please,please bring these DVD's out in the U.S. I Beg Of You. So if not in the Netherlands at least in the U.S. Because just like myself Elvis too was a U.S. Male. That's M,A,L,E son that's me (the king of rock n'roll as well).

I wrote to EPE concerning the apparent change of plans by Warners to release the 6 Elvis DVD's scheduled for release in Jan 2005. I've just received the following message from EPE.
"Actually Warner Bros. did not promise the 6 DVDs. A colleague of theirs from Turner Classic Movies made mention of the 6 DVDs and the January release date whilst hosting an Elvis Week event for us last August and word went out all over the fan world. It turned out that the information thought to be confirmed and ready to share was actually an internal communication with Warner and their associates and the release information was tentative and not to be announced. Warner does intend to release these films on DVD and will advise us of the date when they determine it. We'll post any and all information they give us for public dissemination immediately upon receiving it. They have not indicated a likely date.
There are no problems of any kind between EPE and Warner. But, we certainly wish we owned or controlled the movies. If we did, every one of them one be out on DVD".
So EPE it would appear does not have problems in getting stuff to the fans as long as they have the rights etc. We'll just have to keep hoping that they hit the shelves this August.

What about 'This Is Elvis" ??
shaneleebrown (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 21, 2005report abuse
Well, I wpersonally won't be shedding any tears that these aren't appearing just yet. i think the previous DVD releases have been quite dire. Nice picture quality, and nice sound quality - just a pity they weren't in synch with each other! "King Creole," for example is dire - so much so, I decided to stick with my ancient VHS copy from the 1980s!
However, with the exception of Kissin Cousins, these aren't a bad bunch of movies - Stay Away Joe, Live A Little and Charro all have much to recommend. Tickle Me hasn't been available for years and will be a big seller when eventually released.
Despite my first paragraph, my feeling here is the same as it is with the FTD re-release policy. This stuff should be mad available for the NEW fans. And, at a reasonably price. £12 for a DVD with no extras is appalling. My feeling with the FTD release of standard albums is that it is all well and good, but new fans aren't able to browse through the catalogue in record shops anymore and buy a CD of an album at a reasonable price. Nice to see raised On Rock being rereleased, yes. But £16? Can a young teen really build his collection at that price? No. The DVDs of Elvis movies and the CDs of most of his albums should be two on one. ie, two movies on one disc, or two albums on one cd. Let the public and those poorer folks out there have the chance to build there collections - not everyone will want the alternate takes etc.

it didn't do Elvis' image any harm when they were released on video. in fact the relevant companies have made buckets of money because lots of people bought them. how much more money would they make if released on DVD with beautiful sound and vision (+ extras?). we have a tv on in our work restroom and when Elvis movies were Tv during 2002 EVERYONE stopped to comment on how great he was !!!

I do agree with gribz 100 %. I too have them all on tape, but I would love to have them in better quality.

This is not just about Elvis fans. I'm a huge fan. It's about the 'future for the Elvis legacy'. With that said, Promotion should be aimed in a big way towards the General Population, and the younger generation. So, they need to do the big promotion campaigns for his greatest work'.
emjel (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 21, 2005report abuse
Sorry but don't agree with that comment at all. Sure, we have them on video, some even off-air TV recordings, but we want good quality transfers in widecreen where appropriate, and the complete films eg Girl Happy & Kissin Cousins. We want them sooner rather than later - Elvis fans aren't getting any younger you know!

I think that's O'K. They should stick to the top 8 or so great Elvis movies, as far as new DVD releases. The ones who enjoy the others can get them on tape, or have them already. It's important at this point in time for Elvis to be promoted to all, and especially the the younger generations. The future of the Elvis legacy has to focus on all his great work, so that the general population that hasn't caught on yet, will finally get it. Well, many of them. I think The next major DVD release should be an 'Elvis30's type promotion campaign' for 'Elvis on Tour', to be released sometime during 2006.
