Contra Zoom Pod Episode 249: The Films of Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley passed away on August 16th 1977 and to mark the 46th anniversary of his untimely passing, the Criterion Channel put together a six-movie collection available to stream now. We discuss three of the films: ⁠King Creole⁠, ⁠Wild in the Country⁠ and ⁠Viva Las Vegas⁠. We talk about Elvis’ acting abilities, how his music is incorporated and whether or not his movies deserve a reevaluation from the film community.
