ELVIS - 68 COMEBACK
Tuesday 14 August 2007
This one hour documentary explores the amazing impact and legacy of a TV special filmed for NBC called ‘Elvis’, now better know as Elvis’s '68 Comeback special'.
Elvis' stands as one of the great television moments in rock music history and a stunningly brilliant milestone in Elvis Presley's career. Elvis rocked the world in the 1950s, a leader among musicians who brought about a revolution in music and pop culture. Through most of the 1960s he concentrated mainly on his movie career, which was very successful, but had become a grind and had not given him many opportunities to prove himself as a serious actor.
By 1968, it had been more than seven years since Elvis had appeared on stage in front of a live audience. In this television special, Elvis played his greatest role - simply being himself.
