Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

This well put together video includes some rare footage of Elvis on a tractor. Some here may not have seen this before, hence this posting. Enjoy.

Nice one. Saw the ( supposedly colorized ) tractor footage before, but it fits nicely into this video. Apparently it was taken at Graceland sometime in '57. I was most amzed when I first saw the track dubbed to the live footage from 1955, someone had a really good eye in lip-reading, to find that one out. Wish they could do that with the other silent footage we have .....

More important than the tractor is that the correct song was, for the first time, matched to the 1955 performance included:

Elvis - "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" - Magnolia Gardens, Houston, TX - Sunday, August 7, 1955

This August 7th footage is the second-oldest known to fans. The color film from Lubbock on April 29 -- seen in "Elvis '56" and other documentaries -- is older by 4 months.

There is also private tour film from earlier in the year, and more between April and August, in private hands.

Well, we have Russwood Park 1956, the 1957 footage with the gold lame jacket and the Jailhouse Rock banner in the background, the Louisville police footage, just a bit, but if someone found out what he was singing and dubbed the correct track on, that would be an added bonus .....
