Wonder if the movie was silent with the audio mixed in later. If so, more audio may exist...

The sound/music seems to be from the '61 concert, if I'm not mistaken.

It was/is. It was shot with 8mm by Elizabeth Moore, the wife of Ken Moore who worked security for Elvis at the time. Its a recent acquisition from her collection. This is more than the bits we've seen posted before. Who is EWJ and did they take this at the exhibit or have access to the the source?

Man, i don't know how much of this exists, but everytime someone posts it, theres new bits and pieces of it. I would like to know how much of this was filmed. James V. Roys excellent article on Ken Moore (who filmed it) in issue 99 of EMM doesn't reveal how much of this footage exists...

I think you're right Gary... it's the property of EPE. And the audio is from 03-25-61... hopefully that won't be on the DVD.

There's indeed more than that 1 minute.
I saw footage of Elvis at the piano and....in much better quality.
I haven't bought the Aloha 40th DVD yet, so I don't know what parts in which quality are on that one.
It supposed to be 30 seconds.

Ken didn't film it, he's in it. That's Ken with Elvis on the passenger side of the car letting him out when they pull up. There's said to be film from the boat trip going over too.

Thanks for the link.

It's a little more of the 11-10-1957 AS footage than we've seen before and, as noted, the audio is taken from 3-25-1961 Honolulu show.

Note that the footage with "Heartbreak Hotel" added is incorrect, the song Scotty, Elvis and Bill are doing is something later in the set. Elvis usually donned his acoustic guitar for the opening number.

And the frenzied ending of "Don't Be Cruel" is a la the arrangement he picked up from Billy Ward and the Dominoes during his November 1956 Las Vegas vacation, and began using as soon as his Hayride benefit gig in December 1956. In fact, the audio from that show would have been a better choice to add to this 1957 footage.

Elvis looks great, and moves like no one else -- he is truly awesome and god-like.

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.

Maybe someday fans will get all of the footage Ken Moore's wife filmed that day, almost 56 years ago.

Amazing!!! The last chance to see Elvis in his golden youth years after this marvelous Hawaii last concert of the 50's was in the concerts of 1961. But unfortunately none were filmed. Instead we got Blue Hawaii.
