Winner of several festival awards including the prestigious Silver Remi at Worldfest Houston, Vito Brancato’s film Driving John Lennon centers on the climactic scene of his original feature screenplay Our Night with Elvis and lets viewers eavesdrop on a dramatic and revealing conversation between rock and roll’s two biggest icons – inspired by an actual meeting between the Beatles and Elvis on August 27, 1965. So the story goes, after an evening of clashing egos, Presley and Lennon go for a drive in Elvis’ flashy red Coupe Deville and have it out on a lonely stretch of Mulholland Highway.
Starring Max Helm (Lennon) and Alex Pappas (Elvis).
