Tinseltown Talks — co-stars remember Elvis the actor

January 8, 2015

NEW — 10:33 a.m. Jan. 8, 2015

For many, the title “King of Rock and Roll” is reserved for one man: Elvis Presley. Had he lived, Elvis would have celebrated his 80th birthday today, Jan. 8.

In addition to his music, Elvis lives on through a phenomenal number of appearances in scripted motion pictures — 31 in all — beginning with “Love Me Tender” in 1956 and ending 13 years later with “Change of Habit.”

Although his films are often dismissed due to weak and predictable scripts, critics generally regarded Elvis as a surprisingly good actor. But what did his costars think?
