Colonel Parker DVD

Colonel Parker DVD: There were already books on the man behind Elvis, but now a DVD on Elvis' manager Colonel Tom Parker has been released. This DVD contains a T.V. documentary ''Looking For Colonel Parker'' made by freelance journalist Constant Meijers. The documentary was originally broadcasted on the ''Het Uur Van De Wolf'' series at the end of the nineties.

Synopsis: The camera captures his search for Dries Van Kuijck’s footsteps, bringing him from Breda to Alabama, to Memphis. The ‘clown’ Parker slowly turns into a shrewd manager, who has the world at his feet. Meijers talks to eyewitnesses, and focuses on the last remaining traces of the once carnival-artist Tom Parker. The documentary is “interesting”, although most of the ‘newly discovered’ facts from 1987 have been told in detail in newer books such by writers such as Dirk Vellenga and Alannah Nash.
