Description: Jailhouse Rock (Le rock du bagne) is Elvis Presley's third film. The story of his character merges with his own life. And the context of the film is that of America of the fifties, in full rock'n'roll revolution. Jailhouse Rock is also a song, which became a rock classic. The author traces the roots of this liberating Rock du Bagne.
Independent journalist Stéphane Deschamps is the author of the book Blues Power, a parallel history of the blues. With a passion for the rock of the fifties and its roots, he wrote a lot about Elvis, and notably wrote and coordinated in 2007 a number of special Elvis Inrockuptibles, for the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his death.
The book includes a DVD with the movie Jailhouse Rock.
