Imagine a handsome man in white broad bell-bottomed pants and a glittery high-collared shirt with a red scarf around the neck, enviable sideburns and finally gravity-defying hair. The one name that comes to mind is the King of Rock 'n' Roll – Elvis Presley. A singer and an actor, he has found his way into the list of the most significant cultural icons of all time. Even if you are not a big fan of music, his trademark look is something you can identify everywhere. But this white glittery image with which he is associated the most did not appear until the 1970s. He recorded his first song at the age of 24 and his rise to stardom was swift when his song Heartbreak Hotel became the number one hit inthe United States and he didn't look back after that. He ruled the rock 'n' roll genre as the king for about three decades.
Long after his demise, Elvis is still remembered fondly by people and there are a lot of fans who would still dress up as him (think Uncle Jesse from Full House) and look up to him. Elvis impersonation is taken very seriously and there are a lot of contests and festivals around the world where Elvis impersonators meet up and celebrate his legacy. Even the movies have not escaped from his hold and you would regularly find characters impersonating Elvis Presley, either as parody or as a sign of respect. Here are five movies where he was most prominently impersonated.
