Book Vs Movie "Elvis & Me" (1988)

Book Vs Movie: Elvis & Me Priscilla Beaulieu Presley’s 1986 Autobiography & the 1988 TV Movie What was considered “racy” in the 80s is viewed quite differently now (and for good reason!) Are you lonesome tonight? Listen to this episode of Book Vs Movie with the Margos and feel like you are part of an 80s Book/TV Movie club! Elvis & Me is Priscilla Beaulieu Presley’s 1985 autobiography and wow, this caused quite a stir when it was first published.  Her extraordinary life story began at 14-years-old meeting the King Of Rock & Roll (Elvis Presley) in 1959 when he was stationed in Germany in the U.S. Army. He was 24 at the time and the person who introduced them, Currie Grant, was married and 27 at the time. (We have THOUGHTS about THAT guy!)  None of this would be okay in these times and we realize that this is going to be a very delicate situation to discuss. We want to honor Priscilla’s truth while acknowledging that this is not an ideal situation for anyone.  Elvis Presley was the biggest star in the world when they met. Priscilla spending her senior year in high school living at Graceland was tabloid fodder for years. So were the sexual dalliances of Elvis who had a thing for his co-stars Ann-Margret, Shelley Fabares, and Juliet Prowse. Also, he was long known to have a fascination for very young girls which may be the reason his manager Colonel Tom Parker told Elvis to marry Priscilla in 1967.  Priscilla goes through much of the gossip at the time and gives an unflinching look at the man who would be the father of her daughter--Lisa Marie. Drug use, infidelity, and the King shooting TV shows that featured Robert Goulet get their due. Plus., we learn about how she managed to bring Graceland back from the brink of financial ruin after Elvis’ death in 1977.  Listen to this episode to hear us talk about the book & TV movie and decide which we like better.  In this ep the Margos discuss: Priscilla’s fascinating life (and how true is her autobiography) Why her version of their relationship is controversial  The King’s peculiar life Our love for TV movies of the 80s The cast: Susan Walters (Priscilla,) Dale Midkiff (Elvis,) Linda Miller (Ann Beaulieu,) Jon Cypher (Priscilla’s stepfather,) Billy Green Bush (Elvis’s father,) Hugh Gillin (Colonel Tom Parker,) and Anne Haney (Elvis’s grandmother.)  Clips used: Elvis & Me trailer  Priscilla meets Evlis Elvis meets her parents Singing in the film by Ronnie McDowell Join our Patreon page to help support the show! https://www.patreon.com/bookversusmovie  Book Vs.
