Theater Thursday

This weeks featured movie is Elvis and Me. What can I say, I've been on a huge Elvis kick since coming back from Graceland. 

Elvis and Me is a made for tv movie based on Priscilla Presely's book titled, Elvis and Me. I usually hate made for tv movies based on the lives of celebrities but this one I just can't get enough of. I first saw this movie when I was in middle school in the late 90's and at the time it was probably the raciest thing I had ever seen. 

Made in 1988, Dale Midkiff stars as Elvis Presely and chronicles his life from his time in the army while living in Germany to his death. Susan Walters stars as Priscilla and since the movie is from her perspective we follow her life from the beginning of her move from Texas to Germany at the age of 14, through their courtship, marriage, divorce and Elvis' untimely death. 

The movie is also full of home footage from their times together and photographic montage at the beginning and end. This is definitely a great movie to watch if you're wanting a closer look at Elvis and his life. 

Now here's the really fun part! Have a movie you love? Great! Post about it and then come back here and link up. That way everyone can see your movie and maybe find something new to watch.
