Gotta love this old collection of Elvis movies.
D. Hoffman
"Frankie and Johnny" in widescreen at 1.66:1 looks very good, better than any other in the collection.

An earlier review points out, very accurately, "On Tour" is a lot of Elvis getting in and out of cars... etc. How true. It is disappointing NOT to have more performance footage.
However! (I may be very bias on this point.) The video snips we do get are very cool... at least to me... as the movie was filmed the year I saw him for the first time. Every time I see the movie, I'm trying to figure out if certain scenes were filmed the evening I saw him.
Also, the lack of video, and the multiple scenes of fans going wild, and more, should be blamed directly on Colonel Parker. If you've ever seen "That's The Way It Is" (Original Release), it's cut up almost as bad as "On Tour". Again, this was Parker's doing! Several years ago, "That's The Way It Is: Special Edition" was released. Virtually ALL the Colonel Parker touches were removed and the songs were completed instead of cut. In fact, I believe several songs could be added because of the removal of scenes of screaming fans and backstage BS. I highly recommend "That's The Way It Is: Special Edition" for anyone wanting a high quality Elvis performance video.
I have to give "On Tour" four stars because of the memories I have of that year's tour, and even though it lacks in many ways I'm still glad it was released. Maybe someone will attempt to restore it the way they did "That's The Way It Is: Special Edition".

I was really hoping that MGM would have remastered these DVDs to give us anamorphic widescreen versions of these movies, but alas, it was not to be. I can't compare this new box set to the previous DVDs (since I didn't own them), but it looks like what we have here was just ported over from previous releases. So, while we have "Kid Galahad" looking marvelous in anamorphic widescreen, we also have an absolutely miserable non-anamorphic transfer of "Clambake." The other two movies fall somewhere in between: "Frankie and Johnny" is supposedly in its correct, anamorphic aspect ratio (and looks great), but with a 1:66 ratio there's very little "widescreen" to talk about, so it's hard to say if this is, indeed, the correct ratio. And "Follow That Dream" is a mixed bag, with a full-screen transfer on one side (why??), and a non-anamorphic widescreen on the other (WHY?).

So, MGM absolutely blew it. They had a chance to issue the definitive versions of these films on DVD, but chose instead to recycle lame product just to milk a little more money out of Elvis fans. Track down the "Kid Galahad" and "Frankie and Johnny" DVDs (assuming that F+J is, indeed, in the correct aspect ratio...anyone know for sure?), but there's no reason why, in 2007, we should have to suffer with non-anamorphic transfers, particularly one as bottom-of-the-barrel bad as "Clambake." My old VHS tape looked miles better than this pathetic DVD. Hey MGM, tell me where I can send these DVDs so that I can get REAL remastered versions someday!

Not as easy to find these in other collections, so they helped fill out my collection.
Nice to have all four movies in their own individual cases, instead of the usual all stuffed in one case or flip sides on the disc.

I realize some people will settle for nothing less than fully restored with true anamorphic widescreen.
I am very satisfied having this set.......Clambake is not as good as far as picture quality as the other 3 movies, but still watchable.
This set brought me closer to having a complete Elvis movie collection. I think I am still 3 movies short.
Overall this set is just fine, so don't be too swayed by some of the reviews.
We as consumers can only buy what is available and this is it.
So yes I would definitely recommend this set.
Their are no more Elvis movies coming out so get these while you can.
Also the price is very good for a 4 movie set.

Overall I'm pleased with the movies that are on here, especially "Follow That Dream" and "Kid Galahad." My favorite of the 4 is the often underrated "Follow That Dream," which is a very funny and well-written film, with Elvis showing his flair for comedy and with a good cast supporting him. "Kid Galahad" is another good film about a corrupt boxing organization, with interesting characters and again a very good cast including Lola Albright and Gig Young. "Frankie and Johnny" doesn't have a great story, but visually the movie is entertaining, with colorful sets and costumes and a historic setting on an 1890s riverboat, along with a few good songs including the title song as well as "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" and "Down By the Riverside"/"When the Saints Go Marching In." The only film on here that I don't care for at all is "Clambake," which is just poorly written and directed.

The picture quality of these films is overall quite good, although some could be improved. "Clambake" is by far the worst looking. Even though it's in 2.35:1 widescreen, the movie obviously has not been restored AT ALL and is scratchy, blurred, and faded. "Frankie and Johnny" in widescreen at 1.66:1 looks very good, better than any other in the collection. "Follow That Dream" looks quite good even though I doubt that it has been restored, and it's in widescreen at 2.35:1 on one side of the disc, and in full screen on the flip side. "Kid Galahad" looks fine, but there's something wrong with the aspect ratios given on the box, since "Kid Galahad" is supposed to be at 1.85:1 and "Frankie and Johnny" is supposed to be 1.66:1, yet Galahad appears to be the LESS widescreen of the two, although the aspect ratios imply the opposite. Perhaps the ratios accidentally got switched on the box.
