Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The generosity of Elvis Presley has been well-documented, but no one before has focused on his favorite gift of choice: a shiny new Cadillac. Now, candid and personal interviews with many of the recipients of these automobiles and other extraordinary gifts paint a touching and funny portrait of a man who continues to be cherished by millions. Features Elvis' original drummer, D.J. Fontana; back-up singers Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires and Myrna Smith of the Sweet Inspirations; personal nurse Marian Cocke; longtime girlfriend Linda Thompson; karate instructor Kang Rhee; Cadillac salesmen Joey Abel and Ernie Barrasso; personal assistant Jerry Schilling with Over 200 photos of Elvis during different periods of his life, including many never before seen from private collections.

Amazon.com

200 Cadillacs is an hour-long documentary on the subject of the Elvis Presley's habit of giving away cars to friends--and sometimes complete strangers. Interview subjects (most of them recipients of automotive largesse) include some names familiar to die-hard Presley-watchers: posse member Sonny West, girlfriend Linda Thompson, drummer D.J. Fontana, and many others. There are some good anecdotes offered in the memories, especially stories involving The King handing out Cadillacs to people he happened to see on a dealership lot. But the repetitive observations (Elvis really, really liked giving gifts) and the flat approach make the film feel longer than it is, and a collection of new rock songs--no Elvis music--amounts to padding on the soundtrack. This isn't the worst cash-in on Elvis mythology, but the bummer is that there might be a funny/weird film to make on this subject. And this isn't it. --Robert Horton

This is a excellent documentary describing how giving the worlds greatest entertainer was during his very short lifetime .Elvis was a man who in essence had an incredibly kind heart and a love for his fans like no other entertainer before or since.His shortcomings as a human being have been just as well documented . It just goes to show how human he really was , a divine interlacing of good and bad.Ive always been proud to be a fan of Elvis Presley and this documentary makes me even prouder. This is a brilliant documentary , the makers should feel very proud for giving Elvis fans a futher insight into the complex life of the King.

Format: DVD
It's hard to explain to anybody younger than 70 how big Elvis Presley was when he first appeared in the mid-1950s. Any kind of description just doesn't seem to work. You had to be there to understand. No single entertainer has even come close to his impact since that time. It's possible that no one ever will.

It's difficult to say what the magic of Elvis Presley was. Books have been written about it. Let's just say that Elvis was able to reach out and touch vast numbers of people of all walks of life who remained loyal fans (if not worshippers) for life. And he gave back in his own peculiar personal ways. One way was to hand out gifts, and these were not cheap trivial little trinkets. Elvis gave out cars, motorcycles, horses, pedigreed dogs and even homes, sometimes to people he barely knew. You'd think he'd go broke, but has anyone ever heard of Elvis having financial difficulties? Evidently, his entertainment efforts generated so much money that none of his gift giving even amounted to pocket change. If anything, his overly generous gift giving only increased his fan base and, in a bizarre way, probably even increased his total cash flow.

Well, there's a movie out that documents his gift giving. The film is called "200 Cadillacs" and is available on DVD. It's a amazing documentary to watch. Many of the gift receivers are included and give their reactions. Some of his band members and fellow entertainers give their impressions. Clips of some of Elvis' performances and music are included. The whole story unfolds before your unbelieving eyes. It's amazing! Surely, nothing like this will ever happen again. It makes for interesting, if very strange, viewing.

The Amazon review nails it - "the bummer is that there might be a funny/weird film to make on this subject. And this isn't it." What would have been really interesting would have been to find the complete strangers Elvis bought Cadillacs for. Instead we see members of the entourage recycling the same stories we've all heard before. To be fair there were one or two stories which were new/interesting, but otherwise nothing much beyond that. There's really only 30 minutes worth of material here.

The response to the video is as amazing as the book! People come out of the woodwork who have an interest in it or the book: Elvis & The Blue Moon Boys. A cousin of a Cadillac recipient, friends or relatives of DJ Fontana, people with ties to one of the band or Elvis, even a Mensa member who's sister was taken to her prom by Elvis. They all love it!
