Second of two programmes Cut Me and I Bleed
The second part of Elvis's life was a perfect sine wave of peaks and troughs. From the despair of his mother's death and the tedium of army life, he rediscovered joy with teenager Priscilla Beaulieu , and returned to the recording studio on better form than ever. But he began years of increasingly gutless movies, becoming a commodity with diminishing dollar value. In 1968, drawing on all his courage, Elvis made a TV special which showed him to be still so good a rocker that even he was shocked. A glorious period followed as he revelled in live performance again, but divorce, isolation and his own dark side began to overwhelm him, and the man who had it all seemed to run out of possibilities. Narrator Suzi Quatro
