Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and MGM Home Entertainment commemorate the birth of music and screen legend Elvis Presley with the Elvis 75th Birthday Collection arriving on DVD June 1, just in time for Father’s Day. Featuring a selection of seven films from the king’s impressive body of work, the set includes both dramatic and musical roles that highlight the phenomenal talent of the great Elvis Presley.
Included in the collection is Presley’s wildly successful acting debut as the brother of a Confederate soldier in the touching western Love Me Tender, his critically acclaimed performance as a half-Kiowa American Indian in Flaming Star, and his dramatic portrayals of a struggling young boxer in Kid Galahad, a troubled young writer in the coming of age story Wild In The Country and a riverboat gambler in Frankie And Johnny. The collection also showcases some of Elvis’ most exuberant musicals with the seaside romp Clambake and the family comedy Follow That Dream. Featuring appearances from stars such as Academy Award-nominated Tuesday Weld (Best Supporting Actress; Looking For Mr. Goodbar), Barbara Eden (“I Dream Of Jeannie”), Charles Bronson (The Great Escape), Shelley Fabares (“Coach”), and Donna Douglas (“The Beverly Hillbillies”), the seven films in the Elvis 75th Birthday Collection celebrate the consummate performer that was Elvis Presley. With simple, powerful storytelling, iconic charm and high-energy musical numbers, these movies are a must-own addition to any DVD collection.
The Elvis 75th Birthday Collection is available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada.
