The world knows him as the King of Rock and Roll, and he is still the best-selling solo artist of all time. Elvis Presley was a grand musician of his time, succeeding in multiple genres including pop, country, R&B, and gospel. Presley was also a highly successful actor; he started his acting career in 1956 and spent 10 years focusing mainly on acting. In 1970, Elvis returned to music with "Elvis Presley's Summer Festival" in Las Vegas, which sold out at all the box offices. He documented his triumphant return to the stage in Elvis: That's the Way It Is. This documentary mainly shows footage of Presley's concerts at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. There are also other concerts from different locations and tapes of Presley and his band rehearsing.

To celebrate these anniversaries, Trafalgar Releasing and Warner Bros will be releasing Elvis: That's the Way It Is: Special Edition to theaters across North America.
