Fantastic book and VERY highly recommended! 10 avril 2014
Par Bob Furmanek - Publié sur

I received this book today and I'm very impressed with it.

Having been an Elvis fan since 1968, I've read a great deal about the man and his music over the past 46 years. Just thumbing through this book, I can see that it contains a lot of new information which has not been printed before.

Mr. Neibaur puts each film into proper perspective. Through interviews with co-stars and people behind the scenes, you get a very strong sense of Elvis' growing frustration over his career path with each new film. He could have done so much more, but the tremendous success of the "travelogue" formula was a chain that he could not break. The 1972 quotes from Elvis reflecting on his Hollywood years was especially revealing, and terribly sad.

I enjoyed reading the period comments from theater owners and exhibitors. They help to paint a very vivid picture of just how popular these films were at the time. I've had the opportunity to see theatrical revivals of about a dozen in 35mm over the past few decades, and those comments certainly support how much fun audiences had seeing these movies on the big screen. They were guaranteed money in the bank and a showman's dream come true. Elvis certainly had charisma and his screen presence does not really translate when watching these films at home on television. Even in the worst of them when he was on auto-pilot, his talent shines through.

With just a few exceptions, the movies never really captured the essence of Presley. His music is still the place to go if you want to discover his musical genius for the first time. However, the movies were enormously popular and gave audiences around the world the opportunity to see Elvis bigger than life at their local theater.

In conclusion, if you were fortunate to be there at the time or if you're wondering just what the Elvis phenomenon was all about, pick up this book. You will not be disappointed!

Elvis on the big screen—read all about it 23 avril 2014
Par Ted Okuda - Publié sur

For some, the King of Rock and Roll’s celluloid exploits fall into two categories: JAILHOUSE ROCK and Every Other Elvis Picture. But this flip assessment isn’t accurate or fair, as Jim Neibaur’s THE ELVIS MOVIES goes to great lengths to illustrate. Granted, there is an inescapable sense of squandered potential that permeates formula affairs like HARUM SCARUM and STAY AWAY, JOE. Yet there’s much to admire and enjoy in FLAMING STAR, KING CREOLE, JAILHOUSE ROCK, VIVA LAS VEGAS, LOVING YOU and others.

For those who might question whether Elvis’ filmography worthy of a book-length study, the answer is yes. Even the weakest efforts reveal a lot about how a “commodity” like Elvis was molded and marketed for consumption by the general public. By closely examing each film in chronological order, Neibaur underscores how Presley’s desire to grow as an actor and artist was thwarted by the success of his lighter “make ’em fast, make ’em cheap” fare. G.I. BLUES, for example, made more money than the superior if atypical FLAMING STAR.

Providing plenty of production data, quotes from associates, and critical evaluations, THE ELVIS MOVIES does an excellent job of examining the peaks and valleys that constituted Presley’s film career. And despite popular consensus, there were definite peaks. While Elvis certainly had his share of clinkers, his best movies showcase his magnetic talent, evidence why he was (and continues to be) a revered, iconic entertainer.

A Must Have for Every Elvis Fan! 28 avril 2014
Par James Zeruk, Jr. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Just when you think James L. Neibaur has reached the pinnacle of his prolific writing career, another excellent book of his rolls off the press. The Elvis Movies is an expertly written filmography which details the too-often-ignored B-side of the King's career ... acting! Neibaur points out that Elvis's movie career paralleled his musical accomplishments, yet his films are seen by many as a sort of underachievement. This book argues (quite successfully) that the Elvis films contain much more than just a handsome American icon leading pretty people into singing fun songs with happy dancing on the big screen. Neibaur gives us a well-researched history lesson of what went on behind the camera and under the music of the Elvis movies.

As one of the most respected filmography writers going, James L. Neibaur remains remarkably consistent. His style, insight, and knowledge of the subjects he covers in his many books and articles should be required reading in the film schools at USC and UCLA. If you are a serious fan of Elvis Presley, then The Elvis Movies is a book you surely must read. Indeed, read this book and you will likely become a fan of James L. Neibaur, too.

A MUST for ALL Elvis Fans 2 juin 2014
Par Christopher Riordan - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Naturally, I was anxious to read this book by Mr. Neibaur. Having worked with Mr. Presley seven (7) times, I wanted to see if the facts were correct. Obviously, research was done, and Mr. Neibaur got a hold of the right people.
It was fun, sad, and pleasurable, reading about all these pictures. I wish other authors did their homework this thoroughly.
In short, I loved the book; and am hoping to take it with me to the BIG Elvis Event in Collingwood, this July. I know the Elvis Fans well; and I'm sure they'd love to have a copy of this.
And, thank you, Mr. Neibaur, for mentioning me so kindly.
