Elvis Presley: Lives On!

Presley, Elvis: Lives On!

Elvis Presley is an American icon who ushered in a music revolution that triggered a global cultural transformation. In this documentary you see rarely seen footage from concerts and performances that paint the picture of a man who truly arrived before his time. At the height of his music career Elvis was drafted into the U.S. Army, but when he returned two years later, he was an even bigger star even though he had not made a record or a public appearance. To reach an even greater audience, he launched into Hollywood movies. Audiences enthusiastically received Presley, and the films were a great platform to promote his soundtrack albums, but a heavy movie-making schedule and constant touring took its toll on Elvis's health, and he became dependant on prescription medication. Sadly, Elvis Presley died on August 16th, 1977, at just 42 years of age. The world was shocked as Elvis "left the building" for the last time. Thousands of mourners gather at "Graceland" every year on the anniversary to commemorate his death, and his music and persona still inspire artists around the world.
