Presley, Elvis/Documentary


Hello. I was wondering what the best Elvis documentary is to watch?  I searched and there seemed to be quite a few of them.  I want something that covers his whole life/career and rise to fame - all the way to the end - not one that focuses on one show or his movies or something.  Thanks for the reply.

Hi Jari,

You're right, there are a lot of Documentaries out there on Elvis. I still have not seen one that I thought was done correctly all the way through but I would try "This Is Elvis" from 1981.

Thank you for the question.
