Jailhouse Rock: An Appraisal
by Mike Eder

Elvis Presley's film career has often been viewed as a wasted opportunity, but at least a third of his efforts broke away from what was to become the typical formula of girls, fights, and blithe songs. Several of these films even showed Elvis off to his full potential. One that fully captured the mood, the music, and the mores of its era was Jailhouse Rock. Anecdotes concerning the Jailhouse Rock recording sessions and filming have been oft repeated over the years. Here I would like to instead examine the intricacies of the final product. Not only is it among the best Elvis Presley movies, but it also may just be one of the most potent films of its era. Is there any other film that so succinctly captures the rebellion of early rock and roll? Right before your eyes you can see the changing of the guard.

Unlike most cinematic ventures from the fifties and sixties addressing the rock and roll phenomenon, Jailhouse Rock wasn’t a teen movie. Sure, Elvis’ name on the marquee was going to bring his young fan base in, but this was a movie made for a mature audience. The thematic sensuality and violence wasn't watered down - this was an intelligent movie that never took on the condescending tone of most Presley films. Not once is Elvis’ accent or southern manner attacked. His character Vince Everett was not a sophisticate, but he was nobody’s fool. Everett was not some kid, but a full- grown man who drank and bedded women. Being that this was shot in 1957, the sexual chemistry between Vince and the various females he came across wasn’t handled in a tawdry way, but neither was sex presented as something that would lead to instant ruin...

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!
Bear Family Records treats his legacy with the most respect and an optimum capacity of expert knowledge.
