A photographic memoir of the making of Elvis Presley's two "in person" films.
By Joseph A. Tunzi
Late spring of 2005 from J.A.T. Publishing comes Elvis: The Documentaries. Joseph Tunzi has put together a beautiful 125-page photo journal that will take you into Elvis Presley's two acclaimed documentaries, including That's The Way It Is, and Golden Globe winner Elvis On Tour.
In 1970, Elvis Presley was in the middle of the greatest musical comeback any entertainer ever experienced. The most exciting aspect of his return was his triumphant Las Vegas return to the concert stage. He decided that a film chronicling his live performances would be a way to convey where he was at today and entertain those who could not come out to see him. The resulting film was That's The Way It Is, a movie Elvis called his best in a decade.
In April, 1972, Elvis took off on his fourth tour of the 70's and the cameras went with him. The concerts and the film that resulted, Elvis On Tour, were rapturously received. Elvis On Tour remains the only time Elvis publicly reflected on his life and it was awarded the Golden Globe for best documentary of 1972.
The Documentaries takes you behind the scenes during the
making of these seminal films. With new facts on their production and over 135
unpublished photographs, Elvis:
The Documentaries is an essential addition to everyone's
Elvis library. You will see Elvis during rehearsals, in the studio, and onstage
entertaining his friends and fans. J.A.T. Publishing has again created a book
that will be both beautiful and informative. Elvis:
The Documentaries is an outstanding book that shows you
why Elvis was proud to have made these films.
