Elvis : Return To Tupelo DVD is a 90 minute program and a wonderful insight into the personal life and early life of Elvis Presley.
Understanding the Elvis phenomenon, and his impact on the world, requires going back to his origins in rural Tupelo, Mississippi where he grew up as one of the poorest boys in town. His emergence on the scene represented a seismic shift in the culture - race, sex and class. What happened here set the stage for him to become the star that still shines brightly today.
The documentary handles Elvis' youth in Tupelo and Memphis, his rise to stardom until the 1956 Tupelo show, hence the name. The story is narrated by Kris Kristofferson and a lot of known people are interviewed: D.J. Fontana, Gordon Stoker, George Klein, but also childhood friends, historians, journalists and girlfriends like June Juanico, Magdalene Morgan and Dixie Locke. The filming of Elvis related spots has been done very professional and the editing is high class. The story is told in a way that makes you sit out the 90 minutes easily. It gives a perfect view on those days in the 30s, 40s and 50s and it really makes you understand where Elvis was coming from.
