Hollywood Acting

Most of Elvis movies in which he acted were made with the idea of making a quick buck for the producers. The idea of making a great film that would be around for years and decades to come was not considered because it might take too much time and it could be risky since many great films did not do well at the box office when they were first released. Elvis' movies always made money at the box office the first time they were shown.

Several good songs (Teddy Bear), a good Elvis movie

Elvis actually starred in 33 movies. Many other films have his likeness performing some songs either visually or on the soundtrack. Many movies with Elvis as a performer were spliced together after his death. His TV specials have been shown with live orchestras, much like a movie, but he acted in only 33 films.

Jailhouse Rock EP Jailhouse Rock EP had 5 songs. It is one of Mr. Presley's finest vinyl releases. It is an EP or Extended Play record.

The vinyl 45 rpm records called EPs usually had two songs on each side and they were packaged in heavy cardboard with a nice picture on the cover and a story on the back, like a vinyl album, only smaller. Their individual value depends largely on condition and scarcity.

Elvis Wish List

There are many photos which were taken of Elvis in various wardrobe from his movies. The wardrobe personnel have to have photos available of each outfit worn by the actor in each scene so that look can be matched if necessary for any refilming. Usually it was a Polaroid. After the film has completed the picture might be thrown away or saved by someone from the wardrobe department. Many such pictures exist of Elvis and they would be considered very valuable as one of a kind, not copies.

If you have an investigative, detective like mind, you can probably track down some Elvis photos or autographs which have not seen the light of day in many years. Many of the crew members and extras who worked on his movies and TV shows might have collectable memorabilia they would sell for the right price. Their names would be in the credits. If they are still working they might be found by checking phone books or the internet social sites or through connections you might have in Hollywood or Las Vegas or Honolulu. Good luck and do not be a stalker or pest, just be reasonable in your quest.
