    Hi, it's a very good documentary about Elvis in Vegas. It has been released many documentaries around Elvis' life (the army years, movie years, the 50's etc.), but
    this is the only one I have about Elvis in Vegas.

    Actually, I just got my copy yesterday. So just as soon as I watch it, I'll let you know what I think.

    .

    Got my copy this week.

    Only about 3% of it is devoted to Vegas ... the rest is a potted biography, with some occasionally smarmy narration.

    And inaccurate: "Gracelands" and "Houston Aerodome" for example.

    It's certainly not what the cover said it was.

    There's some interesting home-movie concert footage (most of which isn't from Vegas) but that's about it.

    If you can find a copy for less than ten of your country's sheckles, then get it. Otherwise, don't bother!

    It's awful, the only 70s footage they show is about 2 min worth of Dec. 1976 Las Vegas fan footage. It is as much Vegas as any other documentary about him, and the Vegas part criticizes him constantly, caqlling him "feminine". Apparently these people have never heard of Michael Jackson!
