The Lincoln show being filmed is just hogwash.


That's exactly what I was thinking, as the lady was insisting the concert itself was filmed, and that she possessed proof. I was sitting on her living room couch. Was I gonna call her a liar?

Maybe Elvis was in New York at the time on a mission for new material... :smt002

No, partial. It's been said, videotaped in a hotelroom too.


The segment during CHIL? That was taped on June 22nd 1977. Look at 2m53s.

The footage starting from 4:17 on appears to have been filmed at Graceland sometime during the summer before Elvis died. When excatly would be interesting to know. Gary Smith did not mention this footage in his email at all.

After reading again. The newspaper article merely mentions the alleged footage, but note that the writer of the article is the one who made this mention, not the producers of the film. And nowhere in the article do the producers mention this at-Graceland footage, which certainly would have been worthy of at least a passing comment since it would be a big draw for the film.


To my knowledge, there has never been any mention of this alleged footage in any biographies or day-to-day accounts, and there would have been no reason to hide the footage. I mean, Graceland/EPE keep the CBS film under wraps, and will likely never release it, so why would they hide that, an interview took place? Doesn't make sense.

The Vernon at Graceland taping is circa Sept 1977 (the voice over says a few days ago; the broadcast was in early Oct?)? The exterior shot of Vernon and interior shot in the office booth look to be videotaped, not filmed.

And they also videotaped Vernon in June 1977 in Omaha, hotel room?

June 1977 - film
September 1977 - videotape

If there was an interview at Graceland...let alone pool side.
CBS NEWS would have used it on August 16!
Instead of having an interview with Vernon when the show was screened doncha think they would have used Elvis.
The headline to this thread is so wrong.


I totally agree with both of you, sadly... I wish it was true.

I'm not sure if this has been noticed but if you look at the video stream at around 4.25 you can see the blooms on the shrubs which are typical of late spring/early summer.
Highly doubt this was post August 16th video.

Just a thought. After they release "Elvis on tour" on DVD, that will be the almost end of it for releases.

All the movies will have been out.
The first two specials are out.

The early tv shows and the last TV special will be it.

The poolside interview will change everything we ever knew about Elvis

and it will go down in history as the best interview with the king of rocknroll, ever. I hope.

yes that footage during the Vernon interview is interesting in that its certainly filmed in a 'summer period' the clip showing between 4:17+4:55 on the video however as we know the interview with Vernon was filmed on 22nd(i think it was ) and 'summer' footage at graceland could have been filmed anytime from june onwards the footage ALONE won't confirm anything

It might please some to know that one of the CBS-TV producers, someone who really knows what went on back then, has been contacted.


And we wait wait wait wait.......


Still no answer from the contacted producer. Maybe affraid to admit it never took place?

Question mark or not the fact is The Doc has provided an article that alludes that an interview exists.Whether it's a journalistic
error or not is the question but the topic got us all intersted and the artice whether true or not at least gives us hope that
there might be something on tape.
