Elvis: That’s the Way It Is (2001) FILM TALK


Hosted by Alysha Main (Music Supervisor/DJ/Host of “Hamilton Film” Podcast)

A series for true music lovers craving a big audiovisual experience with the greatest sonic moments ever captured on film.  Host Alysha Main will take the audience on a journey through the liner notes and deep cuts from the most beloved music documentaries and biopics of all time.

In Part 2 of the series, we expand past documentaries into biopics and films with a unique musical focus.  We’ll see iconic 1970s performances by Elvis Presley, James Brown, Bill Withers, B.B. King & more; we’ll explore the lives of legendary artists Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, and we’ll have some family fun at the “School of Rock”.


After years of making movies, Elvis Presley makes a triumphant return to the stage in Las Vegas in the Summer of 1970.  The first non-dramatic film of Elvis’s career documents rehearsals with the TCB (Taking Care of Business) Band, his phenomenal performances, and the celebrity and fan culture surrounding the shows.
