An Elvis Presley documentary directed by Mike Parkinson. This Rockumentary examines the final 24 hours of the rock musicians life which over the years have been questioned time and time again. He died on August 16, 1977, in the bathroom of his mansion in Memphis, Tennessee from a heart attack aged only 42. It sent shockwaves around the world as he was easily one of the worlds most famous people at the time and even today 40 years after his death he is admired for his songs, charisma and style.
Elvis Presley’s death at such a young age solidified him as “the king”. It even led to people making conspiracy theories about him faking it and going off to live on a remote Island somewhere. While none of those theories can be proven it is believed the cause of the heart attack was due to prescription painkillers for which he had been hospitalised numerous times for taking too many.
