Still image from the film Jailhouse Rock
Elvis Presley makes his feature film debut as a hotheaded young singer in the raw-edged rock ‘n’ roll classic, Jailhouse Rock. Young Vince Everett (Presley) goes to prison for accidentally killing a man in a barroom brawl while defending a young woman’s honor. After Everett’s cellmate teaches him how to play guitar and encourages him to sing, Everett’s swiveling, electrifying performance at a jailhouse concert leads to stardom. (HD Presentation)
