Elvis is asked some awkward questions about the Vietnam war. He reflects on the "image" of Elvis and real life. He turns the interview around with some funny observations.


BadAssMacmillan : One of the coolest guys that ever lived..

Matei : "I'm just an entertainer", says The King. :) This is something some people should hear.

Arya Stark : I really respect Elvis for his response to the war question. He was a class act and knew not to shove his opinions down people's throats. If only more of today's stars followed his lead.

Travis Kraft : A true class act.

gasmaskboi19371945 : I like his resentment, and his sort of shyness. He seemed pretty real to me.

Richard Sharpe : I like how he called the female reporter, "Honey." :D

Nani Wattz : Why is he so handsome? Gosh I can't even stop staring at him. Man, he should of toured outside of the U.S.

Paul Aylett : I loved the way he responded to the questions on the draft and other entertainers expressing opinions on the draft. He was a very astute guy.

Angel Messtanoffski : Before The Beatles, before Michael Jackson, before Justin Bieber, before the term "Rock Star" was ever used...there was Elvis!

TheFree2last1 : I love the way he always keeps his modesty. I don`t have any comments about that, just an entertainer. BLESS the MAN. That`s what I miss today, just keep it simple, and sincere.

sam cuschieri : humble, sincere, honest, true, ..real undisputed talent..sense of humor..patient....cool..natural....ELVIS!

lastdaysguitar : The one man who really looks comfortable in a cape.

Ann Thompson : 'I am just an ' entertainer' such humility from the greatest man ever to live.

Celtic Whisper : When he said 'gold belt' he LITERALLY meant a gold belt!

Laura Westover : Watching this very short interview, I just are reminded how humble and gracious Elvis was and he had such wonderful humor, and it is so true what he said about it being very hard to live up to an image...God Bless you Elvis...xx

whatever : Awesome presence!


70applejack : The most handsome man in a cape

Ken Davenport : He really seemed like a genuine guy. He did have good sense of humor.

Mya Hollandia : He is so beautiful

Myth Detector : Elvis had the right idea here. He was just an entertainer. Complex political issues were way beyond his understanding. At least he was smart enough to realise that. I wish modern entertainers and sportspeople took a note from his book. It's a quirk of modern life that these "celebrities" have a much bigger forum for their views than their credentials merit. They should recognise that whilst they have no credentials to talk about these subjects, the mass of sheep listen to them. So they should be more responsible and keep their views private.

TheFree2last1 : I love him. The most funniest and sincere Man who ever lived. AMEN.

Phillip Gray : I've always respected Elvis for keeping his opinions of that nature to, himself. I do know that he gave money to Vietnam vets, but supporting the troops isn't the same as supporting war. I wish more famous people of today, would keep with this attitude of keeping their opinions to themselves. I don't know for sure that Elvis would agree with my view, and I'd really rather not know. He knew he had a lot of influence with people and he didn't want to influence anyone's opinion, just because they were his fans, he wanted them to decide for themselves. That's real class. There's not enough of that in today's world.

Jerry Cherrytree : Elvis invented the rock star! For a entertainer who had a lot of money and fame he was actually a nice person. I've never seen or read anything bad about him. Perfect role model. It's still a extreme loss that he died so young because he really left a HUGE imprint on western music and just music in general.     

nyrockchicxx : Love his eyes.

ziad hassan : Simply the king

Wbaldo R. : Long live the king

Settecieli77 : He was so tanned here. They say his mother Gladys had Cherokee blood in her. Whatever type of Indian DNA they had, I really believe Elvis inherited a lot of it. I know he dyed his hair black but he could get a good tan.

sojnab1 : truly a GREAT

thehitchrules : He was absolutely spectacular. 

Scott Hennes : Elvis will always be the King!

Kristy Parker : He was so handsome!! No wonder Precilla couldn't get over him.


Assyl Yacine : Hahaha what a smooth talking Rock n roller

George Horner : We know how Elvis felt about war protesters, he was drafted and served with honor, and received no special treatment, with maybe the exception of being able to go home when his beloved mother was in the hospital dying.

LegendOfBillyJean : He looked very sad when questioned about Priscilla

Monika Cabadajová : Smart, honest, frank. I love Elvis Presley. He could be sometimes wrong as everybody, but he was so honest in what he was doing. I love this warmhearted Man.

Ness2017 : Not just the King of Rock, but also the King of Cool, rest in peace mr. Presley.

Gala Matlock : he craks me up I love Elvis very much

space world : never is cooler as the king himself. i love elvis for all time

Jana Vejnovič : He is too polite to refuse to answer weird questions.

Bruce Burns : Its a shame that in the latter period of Elvis's career that he went hell for leather with that overdressed look from that era and today is remembered as that with all the Elvis impersonators instead of the earlier part of his career with simple classy good taste dressing , there is a picture of him very early leaning against his Caddilac in classy simple clothes and his youth and energy and style shook the world .

Anchit Raul : I really love Elvis and Michael

Martin Danser : Is this really humor? OR, is this a secret message for us to decode? By showing us his gold belt, is Elvis actually telling us that it is HE... that HE is the one.... could it be that HE is the true creator..... of WWF SMACKDOWN???? The clip is cut short, so now the world will never know......

g g : Appreciating you for sharing this from the San Francisco Bay Area April 2019👍🏼💓💖


yocbjone : i just loved the way he responded to the last question!

Ron Wylie : I have nnever really been a huge fan of the music, though I know there is no one like hir and there wont be another {I also think dont be cruel is simply the best rock and roll song ever, it suits everything about his image} but I really like the man. He is considerate and funny, fantastically talented and every man would love 10% of what he had and he did it with no star behaviour at all. wonderful wonderful man

thehitchrules : Love how the camera goes in when E says "closeness" !!!
