THIS IS ELVIS promo

Trawling thru eBay just now & I saw a THIS IS ELVIS cinema poster & it got me to wondering where the picture was from, that they used all be it manipulated on posters & record sleeves. Anyone any ideas? Or perhaps it was a made up one? Looks familiar to me though & will probably kick self when someone shows me!! Apologies if subject has been on forum before.

Probably not many from this particular year though.

However it does make a fine album cover in its extant form.

Somehow it seems to capture Elvis "through the ages" it could just as easily be from the opening shot of the 68 comeback !! (or Omaha '77 eh Mx :smt002 )

Yes, strange that those stunning images were not considered or never made the soundtrack cover for Elvis In Concert....
