After the music doco's, my favourite movie, would be 'Follow That Dream', his comic timing is brilliant........

"That's tThe Way It Is" & "On Tour" are tops. and I like all of the rest.
I hadn't watched them for ages until they started coming out on DVD.
It's great to be able to see them in widescreen from the DVD's. Very enjoyable.

I have actually 2 favorite movies:

1) King Creole
2) Change Of Habit

These movies are great. They have a good storyline, good songs and Elvis?s acting is very good in both. Wish he would have done some more movies like that.

:hmm: Well, of the "acting" pieces:

1. Wild in the Country
2. Follow that Dream
3. Kid Galahad
4. Change of Habit
5. King Creole / Flaming Star

Something like that, but the above are all pretty close. ;)

Definitely KING CREOLE, thats his best movie..
and then Elvis On Tour, Thats The Way It Is, Elvis : The Lost Performances, Jailhouse Rock. For some reasons i enjoy elvis as a singer rather than him as an actor, he is better as himself and doing something he is GIFTED on it and that is singing in a live show .

And if its about his documentaries after his death, i would choose: Elvis The Definitive Collections boxset.

With the exception of his concerts, because in my mind his live shows are different then the other movies because he was himself and not playing a character, I like his early ones and his last ones. Jailhouse Rock, King Creole and Loving You, as well as Live Alittle Love Alittle, The Trouble With Girls, and Change of Habit I think were his best. But I have to say that as disheartened as Elvis was with the scripts he was getting, it never came through in any of his movies. That alone I think says something about his acting ability.

that's the way it is is a music documentary but if you are talking about the 31 films he made - i have not seen many but i think that he looked BEAUTIFUL in 'Change of Habit.'

I have never called a man beautiful before but Elvis Presley was amazing in that film. ;)

I'm willing to take it even further than that ;) I think he was the best sculpted HUMAN BEING, male or female, ever on the planet. God sure had a great day when He created Elvis:jawdrop:

I like the one he Hated the most "Harem Scarem". Actually it started out with a great story line then went downhill fast.
THe ones I watch the most are:

King Creole (love the line "I'm just being neighborly. . .")
Viva Las Vegas
68 Comeback outtakes & on the concert singing Trouble where you can tell
how nervous he is
GI Blues - best set of songs ever
