Jail House Rock [1957]: Typical Elvis Presley

Posted on the 15 January 2014 by Rukhaiyaaramrit

 

Elvis Presley’s popularity is like the one Michael Jackson had all over the world. Even if you have never heard a Presley song, you know his name. Such is the life of some rock stars, they are like characters and the events in their life are like the ones that happens in a fictional character’s life. I have listened to a dozen or two dozen or may me some more songs sung by Elvis Presley but this is the only film I saw where Elvis acted as well. Jailhouse Rock showcases Elvis Presley at his meanest and most arrogant avatar; this film could have been much better, had they increased production values and had a better star cast. But still, you will love the arrogant Presley and the songs he sings, it made me tempted to watch his three films I heard of; "Love Me Tender", "Loving You" & "King Creole".

Jail House Rock [1957]: Typical Elvis Presley
The main essence of Jailhouse Rock is its songs; it was a pleasure watching Elvis Presley singing “Baby I don’t care”. If you want to see the classical Elvis Presley, this is the song you must watch and listen to. Jailhouse Rock covers all the emotion a ‘rags to riches’ story of a pop star should have, the frustration, sympathy, the anger and the jealousy, the revenge and the redemption. This movie showcased Elvis Presley as Vince Everett, who was pretty similar to the kind of character Elvis Presley was in real life. There were scenes of a few fist fights, which Elvis had in real life as well and some arrogance he did in the film, he also did as Elvis Presley. You must watch Jailhouse Rock, it is one of the best films to watch in the Music genre and it surely is an Elvis Presley classic.
