Turner Classic Movies salutes Elvis as a Teen Idol

May 15, 2012

In a salute to teen idols, Elvis is front and center on the new cover of Turner Classic Movie's June Now Playing guide.

Turner Classic Movies will be saluting 16 of the biggest teen heart throbs though out the years. Elvis, along with James Dean, Pat Boone, Ricky Nelson, and Davy Jones are just a few of the idols TCM will be saluting.

Turner released the following statement on why they chose Elvis for the cover.

“We looked at the festival as a whole, and thought that Elvis conveyed the concept of “teen idol” and was also a big enough sensation to carry the cover on his own, not to mention that he hasn’t graced the cover yet, so it was about time and this was the perfect tie-in!”
