Storyline

The King of Rock-n-Roll lives! On his way across New Mexico, Byron Gruman picks up a hitch-hiking impersonator who says he's Elvis Presley really. Skeptical and trying to shake the memory of his wife's death, Byron just wants to drop Elvis off at his Memphis destination. Instead, he finds himself won over by this King, much like everyone they meet including a sexy Marilyn Monroe look-alike. Featuring a scene that was shot inside the Graceland Mansion thanks to Priscilla Presley's involvement as executive producer. With Harvey Keitel, Bridget Fonda, Johnathon Schaech. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The closing scenes are supposedly set during the candlelight vigil that takes place each year at Graceland on the anniversary of Elvis Presley's death in August, which is a very hot month in Memphis, TN. However, in the closeup shots of Schaech and Fonda, the actors' breath is clearly visible. This is because the shoot actually took place in early spring, during unusually cold weather for Memphis.

Damn fine movie. Will keep you guessing all the way till the end, and perhaps you'll choose not to believe anyways. I was glued to this movie from start to finish, the King will always live on in peoples memories won't he.
