DVD Review : Elvis The Hollywood Collection

Everyone has a favorite Elvis movie. There are the obvious choices Blue Hawaii and GI BluesJailhouse Rock, and Love Me Tender that made Elvis' career in films. In this nice six film collection (Released in 2007) from Warner Brothers, there are some of the Elvis movies that don't always get shown during Elvis tribute times, but are special to many people. There is nothing like an Elvis movie to make viewers nostalgic. You may not have lived it, but with Elvis as the star, you certainly feel a part of the action. Anyone up for 'doing the clam?'

'Black Star': David Bowie's Connection to Elvis Presley

Like most children of the 1950s, David Bowie considered Elvis a mythic figure. The pair, who would go on to share a record label, RCA, in the 1970s, also happened to be born on the same day. In an interview with Q in 1997 Bowie said of the date: 'I couldn't believe it', he was a major hero of mine. And I was probably stupid enough to believe that having the same birthday as him actually meant something'. And his 69th birthday, and the musical 'Lazarus' - has led back to Elvis. On this week's New York Times Popcast, the philosopher Simon Critchley, whose book 'Bowie' was released in 2014, points to the rare Elvis song 'Black Star', an alternate version of 'Flaming Star' from the 1960 Western of the same name.
