Bought this UK vhs tape last week.
It´s the longest (163 mins) version and a nice flick.
Kurt Russell is really awesome.


Any Elvis fans here?
I´m not crazy about his stuff but i like a good Biographical movie now and then.
And of course i like to collect everything John Carpenter has done.

Cool aTomiK. I never even heard of this movie, but it looks interesting even though I was never a big Elvis fan either. Be sure to post after you watch it.

Great movie, Kurt Russell's best performance IMO, can't find it on DVD for love nor money.

kurt's big post-Disney comeback, and it's a winner. One of the good biopics. This and 'The Buddy Holly Story' are required viewing. Without this we would never have seen Kurt in 'Escape From New York'... 'The Thing'... 'Big Trouble in Little China'. Best not to even imagine such things!
