(JAT) Hardcover, 23x26.5 cm, 112 pages of great and rare color and b&w photos. Rare original stock copies with 2010 pocket calendar (9.6x5.6 cm) Jailhouse Rock: An Appraisal by Mike Eder Elvis Presley´s film career has often been viewed as a wasted opportunity, but at least a third of his efforts broke away from what was to become the typical formula of girls, fights, and blithe songs. Several of these films even showed Elvis off to his full potential. One that fully captured the mood, the music, and the mores of its era was Jailhouse Rock.

The thematic sensuality and violence wasn´t watered down - this was an intelligent movie that never took on the condescending tone of most Presley films. Not once is Elvis’ accent or southern manner attacked. His character Vince Everett was not a sophisticate, but he was nobody’s fool. Everett was not some kid, but a full- grown man who drank and bedded women. Being that this was shot in 1957, the sexual chemistry between Vince and the various females he came across wasn’t handled in a tawdry way, but neither was sex presented as something that would lead to instant ruin...
