Listen kiddos, this is NOT a shot from 67 or 68 but from the early months of 1957!! Ive been collecting early pix since my teen years- a long, long time ago. I can recognize a 57 shot blindfolded! Stick to the jumpsuit years if you cant spot the difference between Loving You or The NBC 68 show. Amateurs!

They were all on fire.


Sorry, I'm not up with these expressions !

Are you agreeing with me, or disagreeing ?

I wrote previously:
That Marlon Brando 'The Wild One' look was so cool back then !

Unfortunately, these days it has something of a Village People association which has kinda ruined it.


I just read that, in fact, only one of the Village People was actually gay !

And it wasn't that leather-clad biker with the giant tash !

It was the cowboy !

Another illusion shattered.


I was strongly disagreeing, but again forgetting your dry
British sense of "humour." :wink:

Thanks Little Sister for the pic.

The candid 50's shots are hard to date, but I would definitely say 1956-1957 - it's a wonderful photo. Thank you for posting it.

I have a photo that I found on a Finish site several years ago. It is very intriguing and I would love to find out more about it.

After some detective work with my friends at TCB World I remembered this photo that Stacy at http://elvis.fan-sites.org (great site BTW!! , I hope she doesn't mind me posting it here) sent me a couple of years ago.

To me the jackets look the same to me, even the top pocket (just open, and no zipper).... so I think we can say for sure it is from the 50's. The sideburns tell me the same thing.

But do you know anything more about it? When or where it might be taken. And also, if it is available in better quality anywhere. Answers are greatly appreciated!!

hi Linda you are right about wearing the same jacket, but the above picture is not from the 50's it is from 67.
wearing the same jacket wasn't unusual for elvis....watch these pictures...
from the 68 special...

and here the same jacket , a view years later during the meeting with nixon..

I dont know why Im replying to this thread again and again! Maybe hoping that you, Little Sister, might not get the idea many Dutch fans are such loonies as the bloke [ and his Detective friends] above... Listen smartass, for the last time : THE PHOTO IS FROM 1957! 1957, 1957, 1957! Klojos !

Those two bottom pictures with Nixon are awesome!

do you have some more pictures perhaps from early 57? so you can post them inhere to see if there is any conncetion to it?

It tires me to no end when certain people , after having mailed at least 5 times on this thread , still think they can correct me on dating Elvis pixfrom the 50s. Jeez, I bought the first ansicht photo cards circa 58/9... Theres a lot I dont know about, but on the 5os Elvis few can better me... A copy of Inside Loving You is all you need to see my point. Enough of this. Go and study capes and matching belts with your friends, Im sure youre an ace on that subject! Gegroet .

I'm with the Riffster on this. If that isn't a '57 pic then I'm off to do my shopping wearing the Gypsy Alpine suit. (Don't you think Elton John would look lurrrrrvely in one... So butch.)

Mon Sep 26, 2005 8:27 pm

I posted that leather jacket picture Little Sister is referring to on my (Finnish) site a few years ago. I took the photo from Paul Lichter´s book Behind Closed Doors. To me, this photo is definitely from 1957, as has been mentioned here several times. And Mr. Rijff´s opinion proves this to me. He knows this stuff.

Have a great night!!!
