Elvis Presley's First and Last Watched Movies.

The first movie Elvis Presley ever saw:

Because his mother’s church forbid movie-going, neither Elvis or his father had ever been to the movies. At age 13, Elvis and his father secretly went to a movie theater to see Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

In later years. Elvis said, “I’ll never forget that movie. I was sitting there with my Daddy and everyone in the audience was laughing and having a good time. I figured that there could be nothing wrong with movies if they have this effect on people.

Side Note: That movie would also inspire to Quenten Tarantino to write Pulp Fiction. “One minute you’re laughing and the next minute people are getting killed. So that’s when I got the feeling of ‘genre mixing’.”

Star Wars (1977) was almost Elvis’ last movie. He was trying to get a print of it the day before he died, to show to his daughter. But, of course, it was not to be.

The last movie Elvis ever saw:

On August 12, four days before he died, Elvis rented the UA South Brook 4 movie theater. He took his semi-secret fiancé Ginger Alden, his daughter Lisa and some friends to see The Spy Who Loved Me.
