Elvis Presley ...

In one of his best acting roles.

In the mid to late 50's and early 60's a collection of leading actors appeared fighting for many great film roles, eatablished film stars had to try to win the roles from these new guns in the business, emerging in this period Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Steve Mc Queen, Jack Nicholson, Ryan O'Neal, James Caan and yes Elvis Presley who proved he could act in some of his early films, but Colonel Parker turned all these roles down on his "behalf".

The Rainmaker, The Defiant Ones, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, West Side Story,
Sweet Bird Of Youth, Fastest Guitar Alive,True Grit, A Star Is Born, Grease,
Midnight Cowboy.
