Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival Palm Springs

7:30 pm: World Premiere of new 4K digital restoration! KING CREOLE (1958) Paramount, 115 min. D: Michael Curtiz. Elvis’s third starring role remains his best work on screen. He plays 19-year old Danny Fisher who is struggling to finish high school while living in a French Quarter flat with an unemployed father (Dean Jagger) and sister (Jan Shepard). The rebellious teen-ager navigates a veritable tightrope between a legitimate singing career and a wholesome girl friend (Dolores Hart) vs. a criminal life while romancing the mistress (Carolyn Jones) of a vicious gangster (Walter Matthau).  Produced by Hal Wallis and deftly helmed by Curtiz on location in New Orleans, this musical crime drama established Elvis as a legitimate actor with a stellar supporting cast including Paul Stewart and Vic Morrow.   Scheduled Special Guest: actress Jan Shepard

Love the title song and the near self-parody "Hard Headed Woman":

Tom Hanks to Play Elvis Presley’s Manager in Baz Luhrmann’s Next Film




Tom Hanks is in negotiations to play Elvis Presley’s iconic manager Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Warner Bros. biopic about the legendary musician.

Luhrmann will direct the movie. He also penned the script with Craig Pearce.

Parker discovered Presley when he was just an unknown and quickly moved in as his lone representation. Parker was responsible for various milestones, including Presley’s record deal with RCA and his successful acting career.

While Luhrmann always envisioned a star for Parker’s part, he wants a newcomer for the role of Presley. The director has begun meeting with talent for the part.

Insiders say a budget is still being ironed out, but Hanks’ commitment will urge the studio to push the project forward. Luhrmann hopes to get the pic into production sometime this year.

Hanks is no stranger to portraying real-life figures like astronaut Jim Lovell in “Apollo 13,” Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in “The Post,” airline captain Chesley Sullenberger in “Sully,” Captain Richard Phillips in “Captain Phillips,” Walt Disney in “Saving Mr. Banks,” and Mister Rogers in Sony’s upcoming biopic “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” Besides the Mister Rogers movie, Hanks can next be seen in the World War II drama “Greyhound” and as Woody in “Toy Story 4.”

He is repped by CAA.

Here's the director Baz Luhrmann on location:

And more news about the movie:

New Elvis Presley movie starring Tom Hanks to be filmed on the Gold Coast

Hollywood legend Tom Hanks will star in a new Baz Luhrmann movie about the life of Elvis Presley to be filmed on the Gold Coast.

The dual-Oscar winner will play Presley's lifelong manager Colonel Tom Parker, but who'll play The King of rock 'n' roll is yet to be revealed.

"The role of Elvis will be filled after a worldwide search to be overseen by Baz Luhrmann," Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told parliament.


She said the production would inject more than $105 million into the local economy, and generate 900 jobs in areas including set construction, catering and costume design.

The Warner Bros. Pictures film will be shot at the Village Roadshow studios on the Gold Coast, and follows a recent meeting between the premier and Luhrmann in London.

It will explore Presley's rise to fame with a focus on his complicated relationship with his manager.

So, August 9th will see the release of a 11-CD boxset with Elvis' performances in Vegas in 1969. Arguably some of the best live Rock'n'Roll ever recorded. Here is the cover:

The new release will include a book written by Ken Sharp:


EIN: We all know that there is a Sony deluxe release about to be announced for the 50th anniversary of Elvis' 1969 Las Vegas concerts. Maybe you are not allowed to tell me but can I ask you if you have been involved in any way with this up-and-coming release?

K.S: I’m honored to say that I was involved with the forthcoming Sony box set. In the accompanying book, I contributed the essay and provided an oral history behind Elvis’s return to the stage. 50 years ago if you had told this little kid that he’d be involved in such an important and historic release I would never have believed you. But that dream came true and I’m excited for Elvis fans to get a chance to absorb The King in all his live glory, ‘69 style!

I believe I saw someone on another messageboard mentioning 115 €. Now, I don't know if that is correct and also I don't know how much $'s that would be. Hope we'll have more info soon.


EDIT:

Just saw on FECC that someone ordered the set for 105 € at bol.com

It seems that on August 9th another show on vinyl will be released:





This show features among others the only known live versions of "This is the story" and "Rubberneckin'", both from the famous Memphis Sessions in '69. Especially the latter song is a fantastic funky rocker (no pun). Listen to it here, including a long false start:

This is the setlist for the show:

No, the boset will feature one completely unreleased show (I think it's the one that was on the RSD LP), all the released ones and then the whole shows of which parts were already released, as I understand. If you have the FTDs and the other releases there's probably not a whole lot new stuff.
