Thanks...they're worth a LOT of money Chris! I particularly love the 'King Creole' poster. 2 OCTOBER 2009 15:11 Tuomas Kurittu said... Must have been quite a work to listen every Elvis movie soundtrack... I've been big Elvis fan for over 20 years, but I
  19. 19. still have seen only about 10-15 of his 33 movies. About half a year ago I bought a DVD of 'Easy Come Easy Go', but I've yet watched about 15 minutes of it, it's so dead boring. But there's also some very good movies, like 'King Creole' and 'Flaming Star' and some of Elvis's mid-sixties have quite good soundtrack music, like 'Harum Scarum', 'Spinout' and 'Double Trouble'. 3 OCTOBER 2009 15:16 POST A COMMENT Comment as: Select profile...
