How to watch the Elvis 1968 comeback special

If you've already seen Elvis, you'll know that the King’s 1968 comeback special is a big part of the movie. It was supposed to be a corny Christmas show, complete with Elvis wearing a reindeer cardigan and shilling Christmas merchandise but producer Steve Binder convinced Presley to squeeze into his leather and return to his rock and roll roots. It represented a turning point for Presley after years of mediocrity and relaunched his musical career.

For Elvis fans that are keen to watch the original, the 1968 Comeback Special is available to rent online on Apple TV and on Prime Video.
