This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the passing of the King of rock 'n' roll, Elvis Presley.

Not only did he make an impression in the recording industry, but he was also a fine actor. In this three-part course, we view and discuss three of his finest films.

  • Apr 24: Jailhouse Rock (1957, Dir. Richard Thorpe)
    After serving time for manslaughter, Vince (Elvis Presley) becomes a rock star.
  • May 1: King Creole (1958, Dir. Michael Curtiz)
    A young man runs with a gang of dropouts by day, and croons in small New Orleans lounges by night.
  • May 8: Wild in the Country (1961, Dir. Philip Dunne)
    Glen Tyler (Presley), a troubled youth, is sent for counseling, to begin battling personal demons, but soon realizes his talent for writing.
