One of the greatest ways to satisfy a fan's inner Elvis is to go to Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 box-office hit that's Elvis "Presley's best film", according to Leonard Maltin's Movei & Video Guide.

The King plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince learns to belt out tunes instead of saloon patrons and after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music and movie success. Six Presley songs by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller spike the story, including Treat Me Nice, I Wanna Be Free and the shimmy-shakin' title tune that was Presley's favorite of all his films' production numbers. "It's the beast in me," Elvis says after kissing Peggy (Judy Tyler). Yeah, but it's the best of him too!
