The Best Elvis Presley Movies
Elvis Presley may be best known as a generational rock star, but from the very beginning of his career, he was making waves in Hollywood. From 1956 to 1969, he starred in 31 movies - and all while juggling a massive recording and touring career as well.
Not surprisingly, most of his big-screen productions took advantage of his pipes, as breezy musical romances like G.I. Blues, Viva Las Vegas, King Creole, and Blue Hawaii being among his most popular films. Still, the musical element was often paired with other genres - such as his roles as a boxer in Kid Galahad and a race-car driver in Spinout and Speedway, not to mention his Western forays like Frankie and Johnny and Stay Away, Joe.
The selling point for all of these movies was, of course, Elvis himself; they were built around his image as a singer, dancer, sex symbol, and All-American hero. But which Elvis movie is the best Elvis Presley movie? No doubt die-hard Elvis have been debating that question for decades now. Your votes will decide. Just remember that this list only includes his starring roles in feature films. For movies about Elvis, that’s another story - and you can take your pick among the many stars who have tried their best to emulate the King.
