I'm still getting the damned DVD and apparently kissing someone's ass.

Does that mean Mr. Berry and his publisher are unreachable??
In the late 1980s, Berry bought a restaurant in Wentzville, Missouri, called The Southern Air, and in 1990 he was sued by several women who claimed that he had installed a video camera in the ladies' bathroom. Berry claimed that he had the camera installed to catch red-handed a worker who was suspected of stealing from the restaurant. Though his guilt was never proven in court, Berry opted for a class action settlement with 59 women. Berry's biographer, Bruce Pegg, estimated that it cost Berry over $1.2 million plus legal fees. It was during this time that he began using Wayne T. Schoeneberg as his legal counsel. Reportedly, a police raid on his house did find videotapes of women using the restroom, and one of the women was a minor. Also found in the raid were 62 grams of marijuana. Felony drug and child-abuse charges were filed. In order to avoid the child-abuse charges, Berry agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was given a six-month suspended jail sentence, two years' unsupervised probation, and ordered to donate $5,000 to a local hospital.

As for the opening song "substitution"of "Don't Be Cruel" -- whoever made that decision is a complete and utter HACK.

Berry's people answered the phone when asked if they could include 'Promised Land' and 'Too Much Monkey Business' in 'This is Elvis', they answered the phone when they wanted permission to include 'Johnny B Goode' in 'Aloha', they answered the phone to put 'Johnny B Goode' in the 'Elvis Lives' video but they could not answer the phone, an e mail, a text, a tweet, a visit to their offices when Warner tried to get 'Johnny B' in Elvis On Tour?
So true and such B/S...like the Doc said...this is 2010 and Elvis is still being treated like sh*t...

I spoke to a Warner exec at my EOT screening and she reiterated practically word for word what was said here....

That is why previous Sony CD releases have different added tracks sometimes on EU versions. Warner should do this. they can double their sales!! And since the disc is in blu-ray there is no more PAL and NTSC issue anymore.

If that is in the film, can WB inform us as to who gave permission for that Berry song to be included ?

But at this stage in our lives, it's just par for the course , as with E1's gaffes, and others cited, that we either wait it out or buy it and eat the cost of getting the later (inevitable) upgrade.
The later DVD will have that "making of" film, too. It was well done (mostly) but purposely not included the first time out.
That's capitalism, baby.

I've often felt that Elvis was a bit more ordinary (less exciting to the girls and charasmatic to men) and just an ordinatary "Joe" (or "bloke"), it would not have overshadowed his great music.
Some of the fan screaming in EOT was humorous but easy to ridicule. After all, is he yesteday's Adam Lambert? To this day his fan base still has that sex appeal draw to him that say, Bob Dylan fans probably never have had.
So corporate policy treats him like a sexual commodity, nothing too serious. Sad but true. It's our burden, I guess.
