Jailhouse Rock


Jailhouse Rock Review

One year for manslaughter? Well, I guess Elvis just wouldn't fly, image-wise, as that bad of a dude. But this story may still be his least heroic, as the former jailbird becomes a music star, only to get punched in the throat when he becomes an egomaniac. Will he get his voice back? That's the ultimate question that Jailhouse Rock asks us to care about. Which we don't.
