Sunday Martinee Classics presents...King Creole

Film

In showcasing the best of his dramatic talent and considered by fans and the King alike to be his finest film, Elvis Presley plays a New Orleans nightclub singer dragged into the criminal underworld. Unlike his other films and scripts that were confined to a lightweight standard format as dictated by his agent, Colonel Parker, King Creole broke the mold. Directed by Michael Curtiz, this 1958 film noir music classic has the breadth and depth of a standout, stand-alone achievement, packed with talent and a compelling beat-the-odds storyline as adapted from the novel A Stone For Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins. A before and after commentary is included.
