Great Moments In Film – Jailhouse Rock (1957)

Unlike yesterday’s 2001 clip, this isn’t a scene that will make you think at all. No, it’s just here to show what a great and magnetic performer Elvis Presley was. This is taken from arguably his best film (not saying much there). Elvis plays a very angry ex-con with musical talent. He eventually has a meteoric rise and even gets his own variety show on television, where he performs the titular song. This is a music video, but it comes directly from the film and had the best picture quality I could find.
