Brief Movie Synopsis [courtesy of Wikipedia]:

"Elvis: That's The Way It Is" documents Elvis Presley's
Summer Festival in Las Vegas during August 1970.
It was his first non-dramatic film since the beginning
of his movie career in 1956, and the film gives us a
clear view of Presley's return to live performances
after years of making movies.

REVIEWS:





"Elvis Presley is still a big star and you'd better believe it, according to 'That's the Way It Is.' This color documentary shows the singer in impromptu rehearsals, intersperses starry-eyed tributes from fans and colleagues and culminates in a candid-camera study of a Presley performance in a Las Vegas night spot that is the best thing about the picture. .... The callow youth who gyrated to fame and wealth as a kind of national joke is now a handsome man, a bit jowlier, true. But the face has character. The personality is a bit more suave but stronger. The powerhouse drive that used to flail about wildly is shrewdly disciplined and siphoned until it explodes into his extraordinary sense of rhythm. .... Most impressively of all, he comes over as a genial, reasonably balanced guy."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 17, 1970
