ABOUT ME PETER CH ECK SFI ELD

Elvis Presley At The Movies: The Soundtracks & The Posters

I'm a Thanet photographer & naturist campaigner, best known for www.nakedinthanet.com. I'm also a music writer (as well as a musician), & my contributions include 'Record Collector', 'Fire-Ball Mail', 'The Memphis Flyer' & Jerry Lee Lewis' official biography 'Killer!', as well various LPs, CDs, websites & forums. Oh, & I also run Thanet's two most popular blogs, The Margate Music Man & Naked In Thanet!

Elvis famously made a long succession of movies, with each of them having progressively worse soundtracks - or did they? I've challenged myself to find at least two half-decent songs from every movie (with the exception of 'Charro!' which only featured the title track over the credits), & I discovered quite a few hidden gems.

Chris Jarvis said... Well done Peter..... Nice collection of posters too. It would be great to have a full set of originals! Cheers from down under in OZ. Chris 2 OCTOBER 2009 14:10

Peter Checksfield said... Thanks...they're worth a LOT of money Chris! I particularly love the 'King Creole' poster. 2 OCTOBER 2009 15:11

Tuomas Kurittu said... Must have been quite a work to listen every Elvis movie soundtrack... I've been big Elvis fan for over 20 years, but I

still have seen only about 10-15 of his 33 movies. About half a year ago I bought a DVD of 'Easy Come Easy Go', but I've yet watched about 15 minutes of it, it's so dead boring. But there's also some very good movies, like 'King Creole' and 'Flaming Star' and some of Elvis's mid-sixties have quite good soundtrack music, like 'Harum Scarum', 'Spinout' and 'Double Trouble'. 3 OCTOBER 2009 15:16
