What’s more, this Elvis is whacked-out to be sure. Coordinated by Liza Johnson (“Hateship Loveship”) from a script by Joey Sagal, Hanala Sagal, and performer Cary Elwes, “Elvis and Nixon” happens on one day, Dec. 21, 1970, and lifts off from a genuine occasion, the Oval Office meeting of the president and the King. The photograph from the experience is, per the end credits, the most asked for picture in the National Archives. The film estimates on everything that hinted at it by arranging one decision silliness after another.
Why did Mr. Presley come to Washington? He needed to join as a government specialist everywhere, so he could go covert and uncover Commies in the counterculture. Why did Nixon try to meet with him?
