I am thoroughly disgusted with this collection, what is wrong with these studios; I will never buy another DVD again unless I've seen it played somewhere else first. I first played "Clambake," then tried "Follow That Dream," and although they were both made in Letterbox, neither one filled up my 60-inch screen (they only spanned about two-thirds of the width--I was so disgusted that I didn't even try playing the other two films). It's not my TV because I have hundreds of other DVDs that play correctly; this is almost as bad as releasing widescreen films in a 4:3 aspect ratio (which should NEVER be done).
While I'm at it, I've contacted Amazon before on this, and they've done nothing, it's just as bad as ever. The majority of the reviews appearing on this collection aren't even about this collection, they rave about "King Creole" which is NOT even in the collection, so I don't know what they're talking about. Customer reviews for products are all over the place, and much of the time they are not related to the DVD or CD you're looking at. This is a total disaster--a review should ONLY appear on the page of the EXACT product it relates to, not some previous version, not a similar named item from another manufacturer, not an item that was part of a different collection, etc. Additionally, when reviewing movies, anyone buying a DVD has already seen it and knows the story (who buys DVDs they don't like), so constantly repeating the storyline, the acting capabilities, etc., is just a waste of words; what is desperately needed is the QUALITY, CONDITION, and SPECIFICS of the product, particularly for DVDs and CDs (i.e., is it really widescreen, DVD-r or real DVD, crisp or blurry, muddy or clear sound, secure or flimsy packaging, single or double sided, does it have CC, etc.). If someone would've only mentioned that these films don't even fill up the screen, I would've never bought it. So to be specific (hopefully this review will NOT appear on other Elvis products), this review is for the DVD set "Elvis 75th Birthday Collection" (containing "Clambake," "Follow That Dream," Frankie And Johnny," and "Kid Galahad"), and not something with "King Creole" in it, so if you're looking for widescreen/letterbox films that fill up your screen, do NOT buy this collection.
