Wonder why they didn't mention Bye Bye Byrdie, which was completely about Elvis, and "From Elvis With Love"?

Lisa Marie has said that she'd like to make a new movie about her dad, as she feels that something better is needed. I wish she would get on with it. It would be interesting to see something coming from her point of view. And since she seems to be something of a realist, it would likely be a no-holds-barred account of Elvis and those around him.

Remember she was only four years old when Priscilla took her to live with Priscilla and Mike Stone. Then what? Nine or 11 when he died.

Her movie would be another regurgitation of her mothers opinion, because Priscilla is the one she trusts for information.

A few points there, Einstein.

The IMDB list is of movies where Elvis is mentioned or is a character. Bye Bye Birdie did not mention Elvis.

There is no such movie as "From Elvis With Love". You are referring to "Touched By Love", based on "To Elvis With Love", the basis of which was later proven to be a hoax.

Only you could turn an innocuous thread about movies into yet another anti-Lisa rant. Using your "logic", then no filmmaker could make a film about Elvis, as they weren't even there.

If Lisa ever does get behind a film, how about you shut your fat mouth and actually wait for it to be released before you criticise?

Oh, but wait, look who I'm talking to ...

Who better than his own daughter, who was nine at the time of his death. She is now in her forties and surely has her own memories and opinions. I'd love to see something from.her life with Elvis.

I know Bye Bye Birdie didn't mention Elvis, but it was about Elvis. That is, it was a character based on Elvis, dummy.

It was not an anti-Lisa rant. I just said that her source of information would be Priscilla, and the ex-wife who went out on Elvis, sued him for so much money he had to work a backbreaking schedule, then was an information source for the movie that accused Elvis of raping her is not the best source for a new movie.

"Touched by Love" was originally titled "From Elvis with Love" but when Elvis died, they changed the title, for some reason. I know, because I saw it several times when it still carried the first title. It never professed to be factual. But it was a nice movie.

I don't know if "not even being there" is better or worse than using Priscilla for the main information source.

I'm sure she has some memories, I certainly remember things that happened before I was nine. But her opinions after the age of four are probably based largely on what Priscilla has told her.

I think it was "From Elvis With Love" but you may be right.

Holy crap! There is no getting to you?!! Lisa is a grown woman. She can think for herself, act on her own thoughts and I would imagine she did things with her dad that were outside the realm of the life of most ordinary children.[I] would love to see this movie based on the point of view of his daughter. Just listening to her in interviews, it is clear that she does NOT share her mother's opinions and has an opinion of her own. In fact, Lisa seems quite opinionated!

I would like to see a movie that Lisa has input on. She does have a mind of her own, and is more current, I guess I would say. She knows her dad has issues, but she also knows he was a great man.

She likes Linda Thompson, Jerry Schilling, and did spend a lot of time at Graceland with her father, and "the guys". She saw with her own eyes the goings on there. Though I do think she was quite a spoiled brat! But she's been backstage, on trips, holidays etc. She has a story to tell, if she ever wanted too.

Several producers have had movie ideas that they wanted to bring to life, but they can't get permission to use Elvis's music so it has held them up. But Lisa is a different story and I hope she gets to tell us _her story_. I'd love to hear her take on all the people Elvis was closest to.
