Between this set, the Lights! Camera! Elvis! Boxed Set and another, I was able to get 32 of his 33 movies. The only one my Daughter doesn't have now is "Loving You", one of my favorites, so I'll keep watching for that release.
All in all, these boxed sets are great way to start, add too, or complete an Elvis Movie Collection. Packaging is attractive and convenient, so they don't take up a lot of room for storage. Very nice to have and as mentioned, I'll be getting a set for myself as well.
I am not a fan of Elvis so mainly bought this to add to my movie collection. I scored it for $57 but even at the normal $70 it works out at $4 a movie. Not bad so long as the quality was OK and in this instance it is.
As one reviewer has already remarked, all the films are in 2.35:1 except Harum Scarum (1965) which is presented in it's original 1.66:1 and This Is Elvis (1981) which is presented in it's original 1.85:1 so do not be fooled by the 1.33:1 listed by Amazon.
Most films run within one or two minutes of original run-times (IMDB) so no major butchering has occurred. There is an error on the packaging that lists Harum Scarum as 85 minutes when the original was 95 minutes however the DVD is the proper 95 minutes. The audio is fine on the DVDs I tested. Each movie is on a separate DVD with all titles packaged into 2 separate cases with hinged disc holders. There are a fair few extras although I didn't delve into those.
The only down side of this package is the subtitles. Every movie is subtitled in French however only 10 of the 17 movies have english subtitles. I still can't fathom why you would produce a set of DVDs with an English cover and then cater for the French market with subtitles. It cost this release a star.
I award this release 4 stars.
