I´m sure that this will be amongst the best quality amateur footage that you've ever seen of Elvis on stage. For the first time you'll get to see 1974 Vegas footage captured duringElvis' August 29th 1974 midnight show, September 1st dinner show andthe infamous September 2nd closing show (wearing the beautiful MadTiger jumpsuit). There's lots of karate on these clips with Red Westcoming on stage at one point to help Elvis with his belt and karate gi.Elvis even knocks poor Charlie Hodge on his backside during a lengthkata... Amazing stuff!
There is also be some 1973 footage shotat Graceland. This includes a glimpse the gates, the grounds, themansion itself and the pool area. This is NOT the poor quality Dutchfootage that has been doing the rounds for years, but brand new footagetaken from the reels and restored by us. This is TV quality material.
Weare also extremely excited to tell you that we have been restoring someSUPERB footage (running for a staggering 13 minutes) of Elvis in KansasCity, Missouri on the evening of June 29th 1974. This is the mostbeautiful clear, close-up footage that we've seen in a long, long timewith Elvis wearing the fantastic Embroidered Eagle jumpsuit.
