Elvis Presley was regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”. Presley excelled in many media, from music to television to films and the concert stage, and he became a beloved cultural king worldwide. Presley’s film output can be divided into two genres. One is the “Elvis movie” where his characters show up in some exotic place looking for work but instead finds every girl hanging on to his every note. The second is the more serious films where, Presley, anxious to show his bona fides as a real actor, takes on characters and situations that are far from the music and dancing of his other films. And when he was given a chance to shine, Presley, on more than one occasion, proved that he had some serious acting chops indeed.
