Descripción del producto

Kurt Russell is Elvis in a career-defining performance. Just two years after Elvis Presley died, Kurt Russell brought him back to life in the original biopic about the king of Rock 'n' Roll. Broadcast on ABC in 1979, Elvis marked the first time director John Carpenter and actor Kurt Russell would work together in what would become a legendary pairing in film history (Escape From New York, Big Trouble in Little China, The Thing and Escape From L.A.) 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 for an effort that garnered numerous Emmy® nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor for Russell. Restored from the original film elements. Special Features - 'Bringing a Legend To Life' featurette with archival interviews of Kurt Russell and John Carpenter (1979). Commentary by 'The Voice of Elvis' Ronnie McDowell and author Edie Hand. Rare clips from American Bandstand. Photo gallery.

Es la única película de John Carpenter que no toca el tema del terror o de la ciencia ficción y sorprendentemente es una gran película. Una biografía de Elvis Presley de 160 minutos. Es ademas la primera película de Kurt Russell con Carpentes y esta sensacional, seguro una de sus mejores actuaciones. Dificil de localizar casi no vista en Europa, aunque se estrenara en España en una versión reducida. Todo Elvis en una película que sorprende por su facilidad narrativa.
PS. La edición es inglesa y solo contiene subtítulos en ingles, no en español, pero merece la pena.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas a great movie and YES this works in the USA .... 14 de septiembre de 2013

I've owned this Blu Ray ...heck it was one of the earliest imports I ever purchased.... for years. It is not only a great movie about a great entertainer , but it looks GREAT on BR! Kurt Russell channels Elvis, Shelly Winters is great as his dear mother... heck the whole cast is wonderful, the period is excellent (it was filmed only two years after the Kings death) so being '79 they didn't need to do the drastic work a film company would now to get the right look. There is a bonus featurette from the time of the shoot and a wonderful commentary by Ronnie McDowell (who sang for Elvis).... its just a damn fine effort by all in front and behind the camera and I can't rate it high enough.... BUY IT NOW , before it goes out of print.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Exceptional film from John Carpenter but it appears to be the same transfer, extras as was done for the 2010 UK Blu-ray release. 19 de agosto de 2016

Kurt Russell, John Carpenter and Elvis were made for each other. If you doubt me, watch Carpenter's biopic "Elvis" made two years after the King passed away with a marvelous performance by Russell. Russell made a perfect collaborator with Carpenter working with him on three of his best features ("The Thing", "Escape from New York" and "Big Trouble in Little China" where Russell channeled his inner John Wayne for his parody performance--a fourth collaboration "Escape from L.A." plays almost like both parody and remake of the original film). This is the second release from Shout Select a new imprint for cult classics.

"Elvis" follows the King from his life in poverty as a child featuring Bing Russell (Kurt's dad) as his father Vernon, Shelley Winters as Gladys Presley and Season Hubley as Priscilla to the point when he conquers Vegas. The cast is rounded out by the perpetually young Joe Mantegna as well as Ed Begley, Jr. The series was nominated for quite a few Emmy Awards (and should have won for Russell a perpetually underrated actor).

This appears to be identical to the UK Blu-ray release from 2010. The transfer appears to be the same--the source is a bit dated but the detail is pretty good. "Elvis" has one flaw that will both many fans--it's not in the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio. The film is presented in 1.78:1 but, it appears to me, this results with extra space at the edge of the frame that wasn't visible before and some cropping at the bottom and top of the image. Those looking for the original aspect ratio will be disappointed. However, this film was released as a feature overseas and I have heard that it was presented in this aspect ratio.

This is the 170 minute version (which was released overseas on video) (according to IMDB the original TV "event" ran 150 minutes) the theatrical cut overseas ran about 105 minutes.

The original mono soundtrack is presented here and sounds quite nice with dialog clear.

The special features are nice but I would have killed for a Russell/Carpenter commentary track here. It's not mentioned on the box but we do get a commentary from Elvis impersonator Ronnie McDowell who did all the singing in the film for Russell nicely moderated by Author Edie Hand with good trivia.

We also get a short featurette produced at the time to promote the film (it's under 12 minutes) with some behind the scenes footage. The other special features are the same as the UK release including clips from American Bandstand and a photo gallery (also not mentioned on the box).

This is a nice looking (although it could have been a perfect looking) presentation of the film with a different aspect ratio from the original broadcast and some nice special features.

I would have liked to see a new restoration and transfer and a commentary from Carpenter & Russell but what we do get is pretty good.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I guess this has been the best movie made on Elvis 13 de agosto de 2014

I guess this has been the best movie made on Elvis, good reflection of the 50's. Kurt looks and acts just like him, too bad Prisilla's part is so washed out and misscasted. Very good transfer to Bluray. My only question is and will be, why with so many Spanish speaking fans all over the world, movies still come with no subtitles in Spanish?

I first watched this when it first aired in 1979. A excellent job was done by then young director John Carpenter of Halloween fame. Kurt Russel was superb as Elvis & so was Shelly Winters as his mother. I isn't very factual about all the drug taking etc of Elvis no. But it's a great tribute to Elvis & all his true blue swede fans! The special features are not restored but still nice to see them here at least!
