It was reported that camera crews from MGM were there to film the opening show for inclusion in the movie " Elvis On Tour ". If true then nothing was used in the final version of the movie, yet some footage taken outside the Hilton during the " Elvis Summer '72 Festival " were included in the movie " This Is Elvis ".

You can see the details of this shirt on the three black and white pictures from J.A.T. Publishing on page 1972-7. The " X " mark on the stage indicates where the microphone stand must be at the beginning of the show.
