This retrospective in images retraces the extraordinary journey of this man from relatively modest beginnings, who became one of the biggest stars in the world of music and cinema. The one his fans simply call the 'King'. A collection of unpublished color and black and white portraits, to dive into the artist's universe in more detail on stage and behind the scenes. The apprenticeship years of the young and very religious Elvis, transformed into a provocative rock'n'roll idol at the age of just 21. The career on the big screen of a young first in the Hollywood universe of the 1960s, through a succession of successful films. The age of maturity and the King's comeback, after Elvis' triumphant performance on the Comeback Special set in 1968.
