BCI International, Inc. announces the release of a new program, "Elvis & June: A Love Story." This one-hour documentary is the story of Elvis Presley's first fiance, June Juanico, from the Summer of 1956. The program will have its worldwide television premiere on VH-1 UK August 16, and was released in North America on DVD and VHS July 26. A special collector's version containing 12 minutes of never-seen bonus content is being marketed via direct response channels in North America. Also, TV Guide is offering a special version available in the magazine's "This is Elvis" issue and via TVGuide.com.

"Elvis & June: A Love Story" features the earliest home movie of Elvis in a private setting, shot during a July 1956 vacation in Biloxi, Miss., when he was in the relationship with 18-year-old Juanico. In addition, the documentary includes dozens of never-seen photos from this era depicting Elvis' private life, secured from collectors and Juanico's own scrapbook. Also included are exclusive interviews with Elvis' original surviving musicians, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana, long-time friend George Klein, Col. Parker's personal assistant, the late Trude Forsher, and home movie owner Eddie Bellman.

This film tells the story that lies behind the making of Elvis Presley's first album for RCA Records in 1956, and his meteoric rise to Superstardom.
In Memphis, Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records, gives the inside story of those groundbreaking days when he auditioned, produced and befriended Elvis. Scotty Moore (guitar) and D.J. Fontana (drums), describe how they helped Elvis record the album in Nashville and New York, aiming for "feel, not perfection." They recall, with rare home movie footage, how they toured 400 miles a day in Elvis' Pink Cadillac, rehearsing the songs that Elvis would immortalize in his first album. Dixie Locke, then Elvis' steady girlfriend, describes how shy, mercurial and glam-orous the young Elvis appeared, and how he coped with his newfound stardom. Musicians B.B. King and Keith Richards tell us what made Elvis the King of Rock n' Roll. Featured songs include Blue Suede Shoes, Shake, Rattle and Roll, Tutti Frutti and Heartbreak Hotel. (DVD Not Rated Sound English Wide Screen 100 min.)
