Elvis Presley: Elvis Has Left The Building - Docu - TV News (DVD)

(2007/ETERNAL FLAME) PAL, Color & B&W, ca.80 Mins.; 17 rare TV News clips August 16, 1977 from around the world plus a bonus TV newsreport about Elvis in Vegas from 05.09.1972; back in stock!

There is no way to describe the effect that Elvis' death had on a television audience 30 years ago. In every country, on every network, broadcasters rearranged their schedules to carry special news pro-grammes and documentary footage marking the end of an era. No death of any entertainer has ever been given such a massive amount of air-time, both in the USA and around the world. It would be impossible to present to you every news bulletin from every country, but the producers of this com-memorative programme have gathered together some of the most important "breaking news" items of the time which will give you a feel for the emotions which were running wild at the very moment when Elvis Presley's death was announced.
This unique time capsule will transport you back to August 1977 when fans around the world morned the passing of the greatest entertainer of all time, when Elvis Presley left our building. We thank those broadcasters who have generously let our production company have access to their archives. Please note that some of the material used was recorded off-air and included for histrorical content, as not all TV companies archive their footage, so the quality of each news report will vary. We hope that you appreciate this documentary piece of TV history

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia!

Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever!
