“He’d walk into a room and you didn’t know what hit you… It was electric… I have never met anyone to this day, I don’t care how famous they are, that had that same electricity,” Priscilla Presley said about Elvis during a Q&A at the Los Angeles Grammy Museum (as shown up above) with Thom Zimny, Jerry Schilling, and Scott Goldman.
The exclusive clip that features an intimate discussion with the King’s former wife, is from “Elvis Presley: The Searcher” - a new three-hour documentary film presentation from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, that will debut on DVD and Limited Collector’s Edition today, Oct. 16.
Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, Jon Landau (music producer) and Scotty Moore (Elvis’ guitarist), are all a part of the newly-released body of work. Thanks to executive producer Priscilla Presley and the archives of Graceland, fans will now have access to never-before-seen footage from private collections, music recordings, shots of Graceland, along with some eye-opening commentary and more than 20 brand-new interviews. The story chronicles the life of Elvis Aaron Presley from childhood through his final Jungle Room recording sessions in 1976.
Elvis remains one of the best-selling solo music artists in the world (with over a billion records sold) and is one of the most iconic figures in history. There’s a reason that he will forever be known as the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
“ELVIS PRESLEY: THE SEARCHER” is directed and produced by Thom Zimny, executive produced by Glen Zipper, Priscilla Presley, Jerry Schilling, Andrew Solt, Alan Gasmer and Jamie Salter, with producers Jon Landau and Kary Antholis.
"In Conversation" with Priscilla Presley, Thom Zimny, Jerry Schilling and Scott Goldman, is part of the DVD Bonus Feature. Limited Collector’s Edition Bonus Features include the conversation at the Grammy Museum, as well as a 20-page digibook featuring images from the Graceland archives.
