Elvis: Up Close & Personal with Sonny West DVD. In this unique and intimate volume, Sonny West, Elvis Presley's close friend and bodyguard for nearly two decades, provides a no-holds barred, first-hand depiction of 'The King'. 'Elvis' is packed with previously unseen photographs and untold stories about Presley's personal and public life - learn why he refused the not-so-subtle advances of Ursula Andress on the set of Fun in Acapulco, uncover amazing personal details from Elvis Presley's historic meeting with the Beatles, and discover the secrets behind the King's famous handshake with Richard Nixon in 1970. This will become a treasured addition to the collections of Elvis fans everywhere. I enjoyed this DVD so much. Sonny West has taken the high road and tells only funny and positive stories about Elvis. It is light hearted and funny and enjoyed the 'behind scenes' as well. I highly recommend this DVD.
