It was more comfortable for him to do another tour, another Vegas stand. To be forced to clean up and do a great job for the movie would only have put extra pressure on him. If he really wanted to do it, I don't think Parker would have stopped him - or could have stopped him, for that matter. JMO!

My thoughts exactly, whatever Elvis really wanted to do, he did, simple as that. That's why I think he never really wanted to tour the world either. Essentially Elvis was a ''lazy'' artist, let's face it, he was the greatest but he settled down real quick every time, not much creativity.
I am amazed how Parker gets the bum rap every time, what went good was because of Elvis and what went wrong was because of Parker.
Life isn't that black and white.
Elvis often used Parker as his scapegoat, if he didn't feel like doing something he told Parker to go and tell that it was not possible.
People often underestimate Elvis' strong will.

If someone wants to do something bad enough they do it.
And if a person wants to do something but they don't pursue it it's their own fault. nobody else's.
