In 2012, Elvis Presley, born in 1935, had been gone 35 years. That same year, he would have been 77 years old (he died in 1977). And 56 years before, Elvis had performed at the historic 1956 homecoming show in Tupelo. These numbers were not lost on writer/director Mike McCarthy, who, after pitching the idea of a seven foot tall bronze statue of Elvis Presley to the Tupelo Convention & Visitors Bureau, went about shooting a documentary on Taylor, Mississippi sculptor Bill Beckwith, as he rushed to complete the inspired pose (taken from the Roger Marshutz photo) by deadline. In the process, McCarthy discovers his own personal connection to the homecoming show. 56 min. Not in competition. Preceded by Tupelove.
