From the Big House to the Big Time - Elvis-Style
In the 1957 box-office hit that's "Presley Best Film," according to Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, the King of Rock 'n'roll plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince Learns to belt out tunes instead of saloon patrons and, after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music and movie success. Six songs by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller spike the story, including "Treat Me Nice," "I Want to Be Free" and the shimmy-shakin' title tune "It's the beast in me," Elvis says adter kissing Peggy (Judy Tyler). It's the best in him too!
