MINI BIO:

Dark, insolent-looking American rock n' roll idol who took the world, especially the teenage public, by storm in the mid-fifties and remained the world's top-selling record star for well over a decade. Nicknamed "Elvis the Pelvis" because of his hip-swivelling gyrations on stage - but films only rarely caught the electric arrogance that set audiences alight. The end came from drugs and a heart attack.

Elvis Presley Quotes:

Chad Gates: It's a music box, it plays European love songs, but they're the same in any language.


[first lines]
Ross Carpenter: [singing] Girls, goin' swimming, Girl, in bikinis, / A walkin' and wigglin' by, yay, yay, yay / Girls, on the beaches, / Girls, oh, what a peaches, / So pretty, Lord I could cry / I'm just a red blooded boy / And I can't stop thinkin' about Girls!


Mr. Fisher: Look, son! You know you didn't fail because your marks were bad, Mr. Evans said you failed because of your attitude. He said anybody that disagreed with you got a punch in the mouth. Is that what I brought you up to do, to fight?
Danny Fisher: No, pa, that's not what you brought me up to do, but I stopped listening to you! I ran out of other cheeks! You know, I remember once, Pop, when I was no more than 3 feet high you took me to the circus. You accidentally bumped into some guy and he turned around and punched you. He punched you right in the mouth, and you know what you did? Nothing! Nothing! When they swing at you, pop, it's not enough to duck, you gotta swing back! Maybe you can't anymore, but I'm not taking after you. You go to school, I'm going out and make a buck.
