About Elvis: Behind Closed Doors
World famous entertainer Elvis Presley experienced a life of public triumphs and personal heartaches. His amazing life is chronicled in Elvis Presley: Behind Closed Doors, with intimate stories told by some of the friends and family who knew him best. Viewers are taken along on Presley’s journey from his dirt poor childhood, where the church was his sanctuary, to his first steps as a rock and roller breaking all the rules and earning both the media label “Elvis The Pelvis,” and legions of fans worldwide. His image as a bad boy will change as he enters the Army, returning a hero who goes on to become one of Hollywood’s most bankable movie stars—all orchestrated by the man who directed his career, Colonel Tom Parker. Yet Elvis can’t forsake his live concerts forever, and starts a new chapter in his life with some of the most groundbreaking performances of the 1970s. But his battle with personal demons will create a backlash from a media who ridicules him as “fat and forty,” to those in his inner circle who divulge secrets that wound the star to the core. It all signals deadly consequences for the mega-star, and his untimely death at age 42 sends millions of fans into mourning.
