Love Me Tender' HD - Brilliant!!

Sun Jun 16, 2013 12:10 pm

Just watched Elvis' first movie - LOVE ME TENDER HD on Apple TV store. First watched it many years ago but it was almost like watching a new film - the picture was superb. It's a respectable western with Elvis songs...really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the acting on show especially Richard Egan who was superb ( I bet they had a great time on the set. Did they stay life-long friends?). William Campbell and fellow character actor Neville Brand also add to the film as gang members ( BRAND starred with John Wayne in numerous movies including the excellent western oater - Cahill: US Marshall). Moreover the stunning Debra Paget played her part well too.

Thanks to Paul McCartney who's impression of Elvis from the film turned me onto it...great scene and all those famous Elvis moves... MORE when 'Poor Boy' is performed later too.

I wonder are there any photos from the movie in the ELVIS FILES BOOKS?

If the APLLE Tv version was great then the Blu-Ray will be fantastic.

Yes the Blu-ray will be very good - very good for a film from 1956...

Thanks for the positive report. I have been wanting to watch LMT again on DVD but I haven't because I'm waiting for the blue-ray. It won't be long. Hope that the other two, FS and WITC will soon follow.

Yes it should be good. May pick it up myself - the Blu- ray should be slightly better and would be nice to fit alongside VLV and JHR - both brilliant Blu -rays!!
FS & WITC?

Although his acting is somewhat an embarrassment, the movie is scripted well.
I welcome the Blu-ray as with any other Elvis Presley movie in this format.

I have pre-ordered it; it better look fantastic! I've seen it many, many times, and am hoping this will give you a feeling of "being there." I have seen much older films look terrific when transformed. I sure hope so!

This was his very first film, and that's obvious. The casting is silly, and he's trying to figure out what to do and all, but he's just adorable! And I hope to see him back then as never before. {crossing fingers}

I love Paul McCartney's remarks about seeing this film for the first time. Must have been quite something back then.

It must have been. It was quite something seeing it again myself.
