It's Christmas Eve, 1959. The Colonel is busy in his Las Vegas office, awaiting Elvis's return from Germany. He will be out of the Army soon and is ready to take America back by storm. The Colonel has other plans. The next 17 years will be a cocktail of mostly bad movies, endless touring and beautiful women. If the Colonel had been given the power of foresight, and was able to see the past (his and Elvis') through the prism of the future, would he change course? The Colonel is visited this night by his one time business partner, Hank Snow. Hank warns him about three ghosts that will be visiting him (sound familiar). The first ghost arrives in a pink cadillac and is dressed in a gold lamee suit. The second is dressed in tight black leather, with a passion for food and guns. The third is smothered in polyester and sequins and trailed by a couple of laughing sycophants. Do the events of August 16th 1977 happen as we remember, or does Elvis play Portland, Maine that evening?
