Elvis Presley may have been born with the rock 'n roll in his blood but without poverty, southern culture and a mother whom he adored, Elvis Aaron Presley might have been just another poor white guy rather than the King of Rock 'n Roll. Narrated by prolific country musician and actor Kris Kristofferson, this feature-length documentary takes an intimate look at Elvis's childhood growing up in Tupelo, Mississippi. Before the gold records, movie deals and infamous variety show performances, Elvis lived a meager and unassuming life with his parents Gladys and Vernon in a quiet Mississippi town struggling through the Great Depression.

From his father's prison time and being raised in public housing, on through his first record, pivotal partnership with Colonel Tom Parker, and concluding with his triumphant homecoming concert in 1956, this documentary offers invaluable insight into the upbringing that would result in the legendary King of Rock 'n Roll. Elvis: Return to Tupelo also features interviews with Elvis biographer Pat Broeske, journalist John Steigenthaler and Tupelo historian Roy Turner.

Guided by vintage audio and video material as well as new interviews with childhood friends, local radio personalities and contemporary musicians, ELVIS: RETURN TO TUPELO unearths the events and influences that would inspire both his music and personality.


DVD Extras Include:
  • 60 minutes of exclusive interviews, rarely seen newsreels, and firsthand stories about the life and times of Elvis Presley.

"The extras are fun and some are a real good addition to the documentary itself, My only conclusion can be that this is one of the best documentaries on Elvis I have ever seen, if not the best. Go get it" - Elvis News

"Elvis: Return to Tupelo may very well be the best film about Elvis Presley yet made." Pop Matters
