Post by jacob »

Has anybody else watched the 3 part series Elvis Women on Amazon Prime? I was really looking forward to seeing this at it has a whole host of people (Mainly women) from the Elvis world contributing to it.Linda ,Ginger,Barbara Hearn...ect but I was really disappointed with it,it made elvis out to be a peodophile only interested in underage girls and Honest Dave Stanley said Elvis gave him speed at 4 years old and killed himself that fateful morning in Auguat 77'! also contributing was Currie Grant who I've never seen on film before,
If any of you have seen it what are your views on it?

seems to me that this is an old title with a new name and if I remember properly the first edition did not show E in a good light either. The Women That Loved Elvis or something like that??

I assume it's covering similar territory to Nash's "Baby, Let's Play House: Elvis Presley and the Women Who Loved Him"?

I skipped that and I'll skip this.

It was like the slaughter of the Golden calf all over again, women who had 2 meetings with Elvis back in the 50's, rolled out, mostly to slate him and slag him off, Alanna Nash partly crucified him with the Baby Let's Play House book and finished the job off "nicely" here, Linda, as usual was her graceful self, she actually said that Elvis wasn't a peadophile (Sp?). David Stanley up to his usual BS -I put him in the same bracket as Lamar Fike - if he opens his mouth and speaks he's probably lying. I've never seen Currie Grant before and it's interesting his slant on meeting Priscilla, he says she offered him sexual favours if he took her to meet Elvis, she says she didn't and sued him (None of this is in the programme -it's in the book Child Bride). I'd say avoid it, I wish I had.

‘Elvis’ Women’: King Of Rock ‘N’ Roll’s Private Life Explored In Amazon Prime Video Docuseries
By Max Goldbart
May 16, 2023 4:42am

EXCLUSIVE: Elvis Presley’s relationship with the women closest to him is to be revealed in an Amazon Prime Video documentary series.

Premiering this week, Elvis’ Women aims to “uncover a man who was much more complex than the public perception of the titular American icon,” according to the show’s synopsis.

Elvis’ Women goes offstage to reveal more about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll through the eyes of the women whose love for the man endures: his nurse, his fiancé, his live-in girlfriends, his many dalliances and fans.

Episode one sees his rise to fame in the 1950s recounted by the various women he dated at the time while revealing a mama’s boy who never recovered from his mother’s sudden death, while the second instalment follows the ups-and-downs of his relationship with Priscilla Beaulieu and Ann-Margret. Episode three charts his post-Priscilla search for true love in the 1970s, towards the end of his life.

The show will be available on Prime Video in the UK and other European territories this week and is also streaming on RTL+ in Germany. It is produced by UK indie Renowned Films, which also makes the likes of Discovery+’s Ice Cold Catch and BBC Three’s The Drop.

In the UK, Prime Video has been on a documentary drive of late, ordering shows on maverick reporter the Fake Sheikh and The Greatest Show Never Made, along with several true crime offerings.

Elvis’ Women comes off the back of Baz Luhrmann biopic Elvis, which was nominated for eight Oscars including Best Actor and Best Picture.

That's the problem. Suzanne Finstad wants to be Albert Goldman. She's an Albert Goldman wannabee. I know the book Child bride was really about Priscilla but if you notice Suzanne Finstad took little digs at Elvis all throughout that book. Suzanne Finstadt isn't interested in making a truthful accurate documentary about Elvis. She wanted to make a negative tabloid type documentary because she thinks that's what will sell and that's what she did. A lot of people have done that to Elvis since he passed away and it isn't right. He's not here to defend himself and a lot of people will flat out lie about Elvis. It's really mean spirited and wrong. I avoid those type of documentaries and books and will only watch the fair ones. There is actually a lot of documentaries about Elvis that I think are good but this obviously isn't one of them. In truth most of Elvis's ex-girlfriends speak really highly of him.

I totaly agree but the worse one was David Stanley,telling that Elvis gave him drugs at 4 years old that,he confronted Elvis about underage girls and the drugs,,,ect also saying that Elvis killed himself.He also said he never saw any chemistry between Elvis and Priscilla.The guys a walking wrecking machine!

David Stanley is a piece of crap. He has no integrity whatsoever. He's always been like that he'll say anything to get publicity or money. It's just a shame that people keep giving him a platform and that he keeps getting offers to do interviews. Although it makes sense that David Stanley would be involved with this project because that's what he does. I wish someone would kick David Stanley in the nuts.

Suzanne Finstad wants to be Albert Goldman. She's an Albert Goldman wannabee. Alanna Nash as well... "Elvis would've been in jail today"

It's well done, and Linda Thompson still has my respect. She sure deserve a place in the Elvis story.


Keep on Rockin'

You can NOT have it both ways. All other things being equal, for Elvis to have been jailed TODAY for things some people said he did starting say, at the ages of 16 to 18 he would have to have been born in the 2005-2007 biennium. Known actors like Pierce Gagnon and Noah Schnapp fit the description. It would have been a different Elvis, even if born in Tupelo in 2006 and moving to Memphis in 2018, just before the pandemia.

Alannah Nash, can't bear to watch the woman. Pushing Elvis as a Peadaphile... Enjoyed "Revelations Of The Memphis Mafia" but this to me seems like she's deliberately dishing dirt for money.

She announced Col' Parker was a murderer because a Clairvoyant from the SAGB told her so. 😁

I'm currently on the first episode, and I'm not particularly fond of the direction it's taking. It surprises me that women who played significant roles in Elvis' life would agree to participate in this project. As for the other talking heads, such as Alanna Nash and Suzanne Finstad, frankly, I'm not very interested in their opinions. And I find the latter's exaggerated, artificial-looking painted eyelashes too distracting.

I recommend the documentary Elvis in love. Elvis in love talks about some of his relationships and it's a better and more accurate documentary compared to the one you are talking about. It covers the same subject but is more respectful of Elvis. I saw it a few years ago and it's currently on youtube. It's a short documentary that won't take you long to watch. You should watch that instead.
