"Nobody" is a short film by filmmaker, William Bryan. The film chronicles the story of Elvis Presley, before he achieved world-wild stardom and became recognized as the international superstar, Elvis Presley. At Humes High School in the year of 1953, Elvis was 18 years old and he was considered to be a bit of a loner. Elvis was not an Athlete, he wore flashy clothing & he carried around a guitar, and he truly liked music class. After accomplishing super-stardom, Elvis was known as a sex symbol; but at Humes High School the girls didn't really want to date him! "Nobody" will feature a detailed account of the 1953 Humes High School talent show which occurred April 9, 1953. Elvis reluctantly entered the talent show after being swayed by those who grasped his enchantment of music. As fate would have it the audience loved Elvis at the talent show, and he captured first place at the 1953 Humes High School talent show! "Nobody" also highlights the very vital and unbreakable Mother and Son relationship between Elvis and his Mother Gladys Presley. While at Humes Elvis connected with his homeroom teacher a stern woman, by the name of Miss Mildred Scrivener, who was a well respected authority figure at Humes High School.
