What did you guys think of this? I thought the casting was great except for Priscilla and Ann Margaret. Rhys-Meyers impressed me as as did Camryn Manheim as Mama and Randy Quaid as the Colonel. The last scene of th 68' comeback special featured my favorite Elvis song "If I Can Dream". Every time I hear this I get chills...I LOVE this song! My only complaint is that Rhys-Meyers is a little scrawny to play Elvis...even the thin Elvis.
I found this in an article about the mini-series
"He has the physical look and the style that embodies Elvis, both the sweetness and the sex appeal. Obese Presley died in 1977 from a heart attack. He was 42."
Does this mean that thin Elvis is still alive?
