A collection of four films starring Elvis Presley. In 'Follow That Dream' (1961), Toby Kwimper (Presley) and his wandering family set up home in Florida, but find themselves menaced by local hoods. Toby also has to escape the advances of a tenacious social worker, who has more on her mind than just his health and welfare. In 'Flaming Star' (1960), Presley stars as the son of a white rancher (John McIntire) and a Kiowa Indian (Dolores del Rio), who finds himself caught between the settlers and the Kiowas when his mother's people go on the warpath. Attempting to act as peacemaker, he only becomes embroiled in the violence. Presley made his acting debut in 'Love Me Tender' (1956), starring as a young Texan farmer who, upon hearing of his older brother's (Richard Egan) death in the Civil War, marries his sweetheart (Debra Paget). When the older brother returns from the war alive and well, a bitter feud between the siblings begins. In 'Wild In The Country' (1961), delinquent Glenn Tyler (Presley) is paroled into his uncle's care on the condition that he pays weekly visits to widowed psychiatrist Irene Sperry (Hope Lange). She discovers that Glenn is a talented writer, and encourages him to attend college. Meanwhile, Glenn is simultaneously dating the pushy Noreen (Tuesday Weld) and the more reserved Betty Lee Parsons (Millie Perkins).
