Elvis looks like he's getting squashed in this pic, take a look at the expression on his face! Thanks for the pics Dennis.

This is when Elvis addressed the Tennesse legislature and the blonde is the daughter of one of the city or state officials.
I wonder if ELvis asked her out. She is beautiful.
Audio exists for elvis' address.
Since this was a big deal, judging by the huge crowd, but no video has surfaced yet.
But look carefully at the still from behind Elvis' right shoulder and you can see a camera on a tri-pod up on the ledge. Also there is a guy close that seems to be taking video but I can't tell if its a still camera or not.

this is what I love about this messageboard - whilst this may be old news for some, this is news to me - can anyone point us in the direction of the audio?
Great photos, thanks for posting.

Scatter......You are Bored...I can tell.

Pesky Monkey :wink:

Take a look though No 2 does look a bit odd??

I bet that legislature building was never again this packed.
I think the number 2 picture has weird lighting. The background is mainly washed out due to bright sun and wrong exposure setting on camera, or the angle of the sun at the time.

March 8th '61! A week before heading out to Hawaii to film Blue Hawaii!
Here are some more alternatives, from a day in Presley' life!

So it was the lighting Funky?

It made it look as though it was superimposed.

Speaking of superimposed, LittleDarlin, did you know some bright spark in the art department placed a Girl Happy publicity head shot, on to a Frankie and Johnny publicity body shot!

Sorry If I upset You Funky... but the one's Posted above didn't look ''right'' to Me, AFTER a second Look, But the Bottom one You posted looks right to Me.

I'm no expert but they look a bit clean to Me.

But, What Do I know.

The Girl Happy/ Frankie and Johnny had Me fooled.

Great pics. My first instinct was that the second one down looked odd. There seems to be a dark line around Elvis' face.

He just looks on top of the world in these pics though - exuding confidence. What was he addressing the legislature about?

Elvis was made an Honorary Colonel by the Legislature TJ. Too bad he didn't take his new rank and toss Parker out on his ass. :lol:

Good :D

These are awesome! I've never seen many of these.

As a resident of Nashville myself, it's great to see Elvis at the State capital building.

I'd be willing to bet that there is local news footage of this event somewhere. One of the local news channels surely was there.

Nice Work Detective.


Your Mission if You decide to take it.....is to find that Footage and bring it back to this MessageBoard A.S.A.P.

This Message will self destruct in 7 seconds.


Sorry just kidding.

Does anyone know the local T.V Station for that Area?
