'Elvis and Me' is a mini-series based on Priscilla Presley's best-selling book of the same name. Starring Dale Midkiff as Elvis and Susan Walters as Priscilla, the movie stays true to what Priscilla wrote in conjunction with Sandra Harmon and was a ratings blockbuster when aired on TV over two nights in 1988. Midkiff and Miller both give excellent and believable performances and each have terrific on-screen chemistry together helping 'Elvis And Me' to portray an unflinching, intimate portrait of the greatest entertainer of our time -- and the woman who he loved and married.
From the Mississippi Delta to the Las Vegas Ballrooms, from Graceland to the inner circle of the rock and roll empire, ELVIS and ME traces the most meteoric rise to stardom the world has ever known. But there was also another Elvis. The private Elvis. The Elvis that wanted to create, in Priscilla, the perfect woman -- a blend of hot sexuality and pristine innocence, of spunkiness and submission. It is the hidden Elvis that we are finally given a glimpse of. The Generosity, the victories, the almost fatherly warmth told with candor and care, ELVIS and ME is a bittersweet and passionate reflection of the loss of innocence, the loss of love, and the loss of a national living treasure.
This edition of 'Elvis and Me' is a Numbered, 500 copies only, Limited Edition 2 DVD set in 16.9 aspect ratio. This is the uncut 3-hour + Miniseries using 2 discs in order to provide the best quality possible (enough to allow upscaling to 16.9).

The film has been transferred from a VHS videotape so is not perfect however it is as good as it possibly can be. So while 'Elvis and Me' has never seen an official DVD release, we have now an 'escape' well worth catching ...
