Elvis Presley remains one of the most admired celebrities in history. With his good looks, charming voice, and kind spirit, there was so much to love about the man that earned the title as “The King of Rock and Roll.”
Because Elvis was such a major star for decades, many people grew up with him. After being a fan of someone for so long, you start to feel like you know them personally, as many of Elvis’ fans felt.
As much as Elvis’ fans loved and still love watching footage of him performing on stage, the moments they truly treasure are the more personal ones. Elvis kept his personal life under wraps for the most part, and surrounded himself with his family and his close circle of friends. But fans were finally allowed to catch a glimpse of the more private side of his life when a collection of his home movies surfaced online.
The clips show Elvis during some of his happiest times with the people he loved, including his wife Priscilla and his daughter, Lisa Marie. One segment of clips shows Elvis and Priscilla enjoying some time together at the beach and the pool, and at one point Elvis can be seen wrapping her up in a big hug and planting a kiss on her cheek. How sweet!
But the real star of the show is Elvis’ bright smile, which never seems to disappear from his face throughout the whole clip. Being with his family and friends brought him so much joy, and it warms our hearts to see him this happy. You can see for yourself below.
Watching Elvis in these clips makes us miss him even more. Do you feel the same?
