  • This Is Elvis is a 1981 documentary film directed by Andrew Solt and Malcolm Leo, based on the life of Elvis Presley. It combined archival footage with reenactments, and voice-over narration by pop singer Ral Donner, imitating Presley's speaking voice. It was screened out of competition at the 1981 Cannes Film Festival. The film grossed $2 million at the box office in the U.S./Canada, ranking #92 for 1981. For the reenactment scenes, Presley was portrayed in the film by four actors: Paul Boensch II as Presley at age 10 David Scott as Presley at age 18 Dana MacKay as Presley at age 35 Johnny Harra as Presley at age 42 Other narrators provided voice-over narrations for Vernon Presley, Gladys Presley, and Priscilla Presley. Presley's former road manager Joe Esposito and girlfriend Linda Thompson provided their own narrations. Presley receives credit only in the extended version prepared for cable and later home video release. RCA Records released a two-disc soundtrack album for the film in 1981, featuring the first official release of several of Presley's 1950s television appearances as well as other previously unreleased performances.
