Elvis

Aka "Elvis the Movie". Just two years after Elvis Presley died, Kurt Russell bought him back to life in the original biopic about the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Tracing Presley's life from his impoverished childhood to his meteoric rise to stardom to his triumphant return to Las Vegas, "Elvis" features Shelley Winters (Gladys Presley), Season Hubley (Priscilla Presley), Bing Russell (Kurt's real-life father as Vernon Presley), Pat Hingle (Colonel Tom Parker), Joe Mantegna ("Memphis Mafia" member Joe Esposito) and Ed Begley Jr. (drummer D.J. Fontana) in an all-star supporting cast. Director John Carpenter and Russell would go on to make several more films together, including "Escape from New York", "The Thing" and "Big Trouble in Little China".
