The story of Elvis Presley is one of triumph over adversity. FROM BEGINNING TO THE END attempts to piece together his short history on earth, aiming to illustrate how he became such a potent force in the music world. Starting with his birth and upbringing in Tupelo, the story draws on a mixture of archive footage and photography from the period. Naturally his tenure at the very pinnacle of the music world is amply covered, with clips showing how he could work his influence over a crowd, and top the charts repeatedly with a series of hit songs. Sadly The King wasn't destined to last long, and his life was cut tragically short when it looked like his career was undergoing a period of renaissance. With interview footage complementing the unearthed visuals, this is a comprehensive re-telling of the story, which should offer valuable insight to even the most hardened Elvis fan.
