Merchant of Memphis

The man behind the fashion choices of some of America's most distinctive music icons is a Jewish merchant who opened a little shop, Lansky Brothers, on Beale Street in 1956. He clothed Elvis Presley, made Jonny Cash's long black coat, costumed David Porter, Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the Bar Kays, just to name a few. His story and influence behind the scenes comes to the fore in this short documentary film.
