many hidden facts about elvis and his life since 1977!
3 November 2001 | by kmeg1223See all my reviews

i found out about this movie from a book written by gail giorgio called "elvis undercover" i highly recommend reading this book, and then watching the movie. the movie is executive produced by priscilla presley and elvis presley enterprises. the book suggests that elvis presley is actually in this movie in disguise. a scene at the very end shows a bum in a train car all alone, if you look closely at the features it is uncanny! another scene in the casino with another disguise sort of a kenny rogers look, but again the features of the face are very familiar! elvis was a master of disguises as the book tells you. i read the book in two days and have watched the movie and am convinced that there is a strong message in this movie!! especially note the fact that the name "jon burrows" is used in the movie which is documented to be one of the alias names of elvis during his years as an entertainer and after? WORTH WATCHING!!!
