"Without Elvis none of us could have made it." --quote attributed to Buddy Holly.

There have been numerous TV movies about Presley, including "Elvis" (ABC, 1979), directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell; "Elvis and Me" (ABC, 1988), a two-part adaptation of Priscilla Presley's memoir directed by Larry Peerce and starring Dale Midkiff; "Elvis & the Colonel: The Untold Story" (NBC, 1993), with Rob Youngblood; and "Elvis Meets Nixon" (Showtime, 1997), starring Rick Peters.

Among the actors who portrayed Presley in features are David Keith in "Heartbreak Hotel" (1988) and Peter Dobson in "Forrest Gump" (1994).

Actor Michael St Gerard has the distinction of playing 'The King' in two 1989 releases "Heart of Dixie" and "Great Balls of Fire" as well as in the short-lived 1990 ABC series "Elvis", which concentrated on the singer's early years.

Presley was posthumously inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
