Elvis had always wanted to be famous. He was barely out of high school when it became clear that he was on his way to making his dream come true. With a little help from Scotty Moore and Bill Black, Elvis cut his first single in 1954, and the rest is history. “On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me. Sharing the secret to Elvis’ success, from childhood through his career, are his manager, Colonel Parker; and his girlfriend, Priscilla.
What is the plot of the story?
From childhood through his career, Elvis’ manager, Colonel Parker; and his girlfriend, Priscilla. Sitting on the sidelines, Priscilla doesn’t experience the momentous events of Elvis’ career. Instead, like a fly on the wall, she watches Colonel Tom Parker build Elvis’ fame and fortune. Priscilla’s desires to become famous and have a career of her own are sidelined as she becomes increasingly involved with Elvis, who is at least five years her junior.
Who is in the cast? What role did each character portray?
The cast includes Austin Butler, Tom Hanks, Jon Voight, Claire Danes, Margot Robbie, Maureen O’Hara, and Eric Roberts. Austin Butler portrayed the role of Elvis’ childhood friend, Joe Esposito. Tom Hanks portrayed Colonel Tom Parker. Jon Voight played David Stanley, the man who “replaced” Elvis as the singer’s manager. Claire Danes portrayed Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, Elvis’ girlfriend, and wife. Margot Robbie played Mary Ann Beaulieu Presley. Maureen O’Hara played Gladys Presley (Colonel’s mother). Eric Roberts also starred as Parker’s attorney and mentor, Owl. John Goodman was cast as a character named Keltner, but he was replaced by Sam Elliott after Goodman suffered from a stroke during filming.
What are the difficulties they face?
There are many difficulties they face. Elvis’ career is young, yet Colonel Parker has the idea that Elvis is going to be a one-hit-wonder. Priscilla has the desire to pursue her musical career, but her goal is put aside after she meets Elvis and a relationship develops between them. With money, fame, and girls at his fingertips, Elvis faces difficult decisions about his future and whether or not he wants to settle down with Priscilla.
What are the themes?
The themes include temptation, loss of innocence, and power. Elvis was famous at a very young age, and to maintain his fame, he often had to make compromises. Priscilla also had to face the idea that if she did not want Colonel Parker to be her manager that she would lose her chance of being famous. The loss of innocence comes into play with Elvis’ decision whether or not he wants to settle down with Priscilla or continue with his wild lifestyle that includes women, drugs, and alcohol.

Who is the antagonist? What are its motives?
The antagonist is Colonel Tom Parker; his motives are money, fame, and the idea that Elvis is going to be a one-hit-wonder. Colonel Parker’s decision to replace Bill Black as Elvis’ guitarist and manager with David Stanley is because he doesn’t want the competition for Elvis’ attention. Parker’s decision to sign away a large part of Elvis’ financial earnings also made him feel more powerful than he already was.
What are the epic scenes?
One of the epic scenes involved Elvis and Priscilla at the recording studio. To keep Priscilla interested in Elvis, he took her to the recording studio where he was working on his first single. She got to see firsthand how difficult it was for him to cut a single that would be successful. Not only did she get to see how much work went into putting a single together, but she also ended up singing with him to make sure that the song came out right.
Who is the most loved character?
Priscilla is the most loved character in the story. Her relationship with Elvis is central to everything that happens throughout the movie. She encourages him to pursue his dream of being a successful singer, she is there for him when he needs her most, and even though she longs for a career of her own, she supports Elvis and loves him unconditionally.
Would you recommend watching this?
Yes; I would recommend watching this movie. Many of the actors in this movie do an excellent job portraying the characters, and because many actors are playing the same role it is easy to get lost in their scenery. Thanks for reading!
