Own a piece of The King! This once-in-a-lifetime DVD lets you experience the legacy of the immortal Elvis Presley as never before! Join "Diamond Joe" Esposito, Elvis' closest friend and trusted confidant of almost 20 years, as he shares his most intimate memories and incredible stories of life with the King of Rock and Roll! Offering an exclusive insider's glimpse of the real Elvis Presley, on-stage and off, the remarkable, must-have DVD includes hundreds of rare personal photos, newsreels, film clips, interviews, home movies and much more! Joe was there for it all - best man at Elvis' wedding, by his side for the triumphant '68 Comeback Special and ultimately - pallbearer at the King's funeral. From the Army years to the glory days of Top 40 superstardom, Joe Esposito was an eyewitness to the life and times of a genuine American legend. And now, you can be too, with this unforgettable presentation of Elvis: His Best Friend Remembers!
Essentially an illustrated interview with longtime Elvis buddy Joe Esposito, Elvis: His Best Friend Remembers is meant for the hardcore Elvis fan only. Esposito met Presley in the Army and stayed a member of the "Memphis Mafia" for the rest of the King's life (and death--his account of finding Elvis's body is by far the most interesting part of the interview). Esposito's memories are cozy and sanitized; in his telling, the news that Elvis gave Tom Jones his first peanut butter sandwich while on vacation in Hawaii qualifies as a fascinating anecdote. Random footage from newsreels and various Presley press conferences is cut into the interview, along with a lot of vintage '60s Polaroids. As befits the bargain-basement ambience, there's not a single note of Elvis music to be heard. --Robert HortonSee all Editorial Reviews
