Bubba Ho-Tep LE & MGM Elvis Collection this Summer

MGM Home Entertainment have announced their plans to honour the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s untimely death with the Region 1 DVD release of a M-G-M Movie Legends Elvis Collection on 24th July 2007 followed by a Bubba Ho-Tep Limited Edition on 7th August 2007.

Celebrating the early screen work of the man who would be King, the four-disc M-G-M Movie Legends Elvis Collection ($39.98 SRP) arrives on DVD July 24 and brings together four titles previously released individually. Discs are identical, and the titles include Clambake (1967), which finds a young oil tycoon posing as a water-ski instructor in an effort to find someone who doesn’t love him just for his money; Kid Galahad (1962), a musical/boxing picture and a departure from Elvis’ frothy cinematic fare; Follow That Dream (1962), the fun-loving fable about an unorthodox family setting up a community on the side of the highway… much to the chagrin of the officious state supervisor; and Frankie and Johnny (1966), a red-hot dramatic tale of jealousy and murder.

Cult icon Bruce Campbell stars as Elvis Presley in Bubba Ho-Tep, returning to DVD on August 7 in a new Limited Edition, with new collectible packaging based on Presley’s own white leather jumpsuit. Campbell swings his feeble hips and joins forces with the late, great Ossie Davis who plays a decrepit and black President John “Jack” Kennedy – to combat a blood-sucking mummy in this film from screenwriter/director Don Coscarelli. Priced at $19.98 SRP, the actual disc is once again expected to be identical to the previously available DVD release.
