A collection of seven films starring Elvis Presley.
Elvis made his acting debut in 'Love Me Tender' (1956), starring as a young Texan farmer who, upon hearing of his older brother (Richard Egan)'s death in the Civil War, marries his sweetheart (Debra Paget).
When the older brother returns from the war alive and well, a bitter feud between the siblings begins.
In 'Flaming Star' (1960), Presley plays the son of a white rancher (John McIntire) and a Kiowa Indian (Dolores del Rio) who finds himself caught between the settlers and the Kiowas when his mother's people go on the warpath.
Attempting to act as peacemaker, he only becomes embroiled in the violence.
In 'Wild in the Country' (1961), country delinquent Glenn Tyler (Presley) is paroled into his uncle's care on the condition that he pays weekly visits to widowed psychiatrist Irene Sperry (Hope Lange).
She discovers that Glenn is a talented writer and encourages him to attend college.
Meanwhile, Glenn is simultaneously dating the pushy Noreen (Tuesday Weld) and the more reserved Betty Lee Parsons (Millie Perkins).
In 'Follow That Dream' (1961), Toby Kwimper (Presley) and his wandering family set up home in Florida but find themselves menaced by local hoods.
Toby also has to escape the advances of a tenacious social worker, who has more on her mind than just his health and welfare.
In 'Kid Galahad' (1962), a remake of the 1937 feature film, Walter Gulick (Presley) is a garage mechanic who is inadvertently drawn into the world of professional boxing.
He has to free himself from the clutches of a gambler (Gig Young) who is attempting to manipulate him.
In 'Frankie and Johnny' (1966), Frankie (Donna Douglas) is a riverboat entertainer who despairs of her gambling singing partner Johnny (Presley) but is too much in love with him to end their relationship.
Finally, in 'Clambake' (1967), Scott Heywood (Presley), an heir to millions, switches places with a ski instructor to learn about everyday life and competes with a wealthy playboy (Bill Bixby) to attract a beautiful co-ed (Shelley Fabares).
