Info von der Homepage:
August 16, 1977 was a day that changed the music world forever – when young American Rock & Roll Super Star Elvis Presley was discovered dead at his Graceland Mansion in Memphis, TN. In the film August 16, 1977 we follow in almost real time the events of three individuals before, during, and after this incomprehensible event that would change their lives and forever alter our world’s entertainment landscape. Thrust into a scenario of unprecedented drama with unimaginable consequences, these key characters respond with shock, outrage, determination and courage.

Woven together, their seemingly disparate perspectives make one of the most intriguing and powerful stories never told. From producers Billy, Ricky & David E. Stanley August 16, 1977 is the true story behind a tragic day in history you thought you knew, but didn’t, and couldn’t, until now… 40 years later.

Elvis: The Rebirth Of The King


Mit folgenden Worten kündigt die BBC die 4stündige Dokumentation "Elvis: The Rebirth of the King" für den 29.12.2017 an:

"The widely accepted Elvis narrative is that The Vegas Period was the nadir of his career but this film argues that Elvis reached his peak, both as a singer and performer in the first few years of his Vegas period. He became, in those short years, the greatest performer on earth.

Elvis: Rebirth of The King, tracks this five year renaissance with some of his key musical and artistic collaborators of the period, including the creator of his most memorable jumpsuits, to celebrate the greatest pop reinvention of all time!"
