The Elvis Presley movie (1981)

45 min 36 secSingle channel / transferred to Digital Video / Black & White / Sound

"By the beginning of 1981, anyone who was anyone had ended up being shot. First there was John Lennon, Reagan was next, and then the Pope. The Elvis Presley Movie imagines that if Elvis was still around he would have probably been added to the list, but like many of the conspiracy theories surrounding 'The King', not everything is as it seems."
