I’ve taken the description of the documentary from the BBC website:
“The untold story of how Elvis Presley transformed Las Vegas, but how the same city helped to destroy him.
In 1969, Elvis was at the peak of his powers with a stage show at the Hilton and recordings that crowned him the most famous entertainer in the world. However, beneath the surface his own demons – and the schemes of his celebrity manager, Colonel Tom Parker – were taking their toll.
Based in 1970s Vegas and featuring some of Elvis’s finest performances, home movies and rare archive footage, the documentary reveals a bizarre tale of intrigue and excess, recounted by those closest to him. It shows how the Vegas experience impacted on Elvis’s spectacular shows, his chart-topping recordings, his volatile relationship with Parker and his unusual private life – all set against the glamorous backdrop of a ‘Sin City’ that would never be the same again.
Featuring interviews with Priscilla Presley, Colonel Parker’s wife Loanne, the Memphis Mafia, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra, songwriters Leiber and Stoller and many more.”
