Elvis (2022)

Almost half a   century after his untimely death on August 16, 1977, in Memphis, Tennessee,   the dysfunctional relationship between Elvis Presley, The King of Rock 'n'   Roll, and his long-time manager Colonel Tom Parker continues to stir   controversy. To clear his name and set the record straight about his   involvement with Elvis's rise to fame and career, a dying, penniless Parker   awakens alone in a Las Vegas hospital room in 1997, with his mind filled with   memories. 


As the colonel reminisces about their eventful, two-decade-long   love/hate relationship, elements of Elvis Presley's story--from the singer's   humble roots, Parker's first encounter with Presley in 1955, the influence of   black music, country, gospel, and blues--unfold. On his deathbed, Tom Parker   looks back on other pivotal landmarks of their career path, including Elvis's   military service in West Germany, his focus on a new movie career, and the   performer's marriage to Priscilla Presley. 


Of course, the former manager   calls to mind Elvis Presley's return to live performances with the 1968   televised Christmas concert, Elvis: The Comeback Special (1968), the 5-year   residency in the International Hotel, Las Vegas, and the last Nebraska   concert on June 20, 1977, at the Pershing Municipal Auditorium, Lincoln.   Elvis Presley rocked the stage in an unrivalled last performance on June 26,   1977, at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, only six weeks before his   death.
