Covers the ground well, and ends up very sad. (Only quibble: they should have stripped most of the sound from This Is Elvis
, and replaced with . . . whatever seemed appropriate).
Just amazing, looking at it this way, how dramatically and swiftly he changed. It's always startling.
In the first clip, it was interesting how they used his guitar as soundtrack to other footage, and suggests more possibilities for his guitar work from the special for other documentary purposes - or even in a feature film. It's very, very strong and evocative.
Oh, one more thing. Just imagine if this were his entire career. Just this. Guy is kickin' around Nashville for a number of years, and after some time in the service and doing odd jobs to survive, is somehow is brought before the public in a raw, explosive television special. And then falls apart in the time allotted just as he did. Mind-blowing.
