ELVIS ON TOUR
TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET
Elvis Presley was 42 years old when he died at Graceland on this date in 1977 – and the date, not the age, is what’s being noted this evening by TCM, which is devoting the day to Elvis movies. The retrospective begins at 6 a.m. ET with 1963’s It Happened at the World’s Fair, which also features future Batman Batgirl Yvonne Craig. But the prime-time action begins with this 1973 documentary account of Presley’s 1972 U.S. tour. Then come two of the rock idol’s most iconic movies: 1957’s Jailhouse Rock at 9:45 p.m. ET, and 1964’s Viva Las Vegas at 11:30 p.m. ET.
