    Not only did he appear in many great movies from many genres he is also known to have appeared in movies for 10 consecutive decades! I can't think of another actor or actress that has accomplished this.

    okay:
    Jailhouse Rock is a film about a guy going to jail.
    GI Blues is a about a dude in the army.
    King Creole is about a night club singer.
    It Happened at the Words Fair is about a guy who is a airplane pilot that
    ends up at the World's Fair
    and Blue Hawaii, is set in (whaddiya know) Hawaii!

    those are the plots, theyre all musical genre though, jailhouse/king creole more musical-drama, the rest musical/comedy (I love them but I don't see five different genres)

    When I saw Elvis, I thought of Charro! (Western) - that's one other one.
