King is Alive, The

Elvis Presley. The King. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Elvis's death proved to be a great career move. His popularity is second to none and sales of his albums, films and merchandising continue to flourish. But it is the impersonators that fascinate. Men (and women) of all shapes and sizes, ethnicity and background have taken to the stage to swivel their hips and give their all in the name of their deity. This collection of titles includes documentaries of said worshippers at the throne, actors portraying Elvis at different stages of his career, and others just dressing up as homage to The King. So, indulge your love of the man and his music with this diverse collection of 'talent'. It doesn't get any better than this. T.C.B. baby, T.C.B. Thank you. Thank you very much.
