Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 08/17/2007
"[JAILHOUSE ROCK] features a lot of dynamic musical numbers." -- Grade: B+
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2007
"[T]he classic title track gets a terrific, swivel-hipped staging and swagger in which everybody in the old cell block really is dancing to the jailhouse rock."

Description by OLDIES.com:

One of the greatest ways to satisfy a fan's inner Elvis is to go to Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 box-office hit that's Elvis "Presley's best film," according to Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide.

The King plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince learns to belt out tunes instead of saloon patrons and, after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music and movie success. Six Presley songs by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller spike the story, including "Treat Me Nice," "I Wanna Be Free" and the shimmy-shakin' title tune that was Presley's favorite of all his films' production numbers. "It's the beast in me," Elvis says after kissing Peggy (Judy Tyler). Yeah, but it's the best of him, too!

Product Description:

After learning to play guitar and sing during a stint in the Big House, a minor-league punk kid becomes a rock star, with a little help from a beautiful agent. But the pressures of fame wear him down. Considered by many to be Elvis Presley's best film because of its eerie narrative prescience, noirish setting, and quality songs, especially the poolside performance of "You're So Square."

Plot Synopsis:

After a barroom brawl, young Vince Everett is sent to prison for manslaughter. With a little help from his hard-nosed cellmate, Everett begins developing his singing talents. After his release, the bitter but determined Vince spares no one as he climbs his way to the top of the music charts.
