Missing photo Viva Las Vegas Photoshoot

This post might be interesting for Honky Tonk Angel and the fantastic epss gallery.

I looked at:

http://elvicities.com/~epss/gallery/viva-las-vegas-1963/

And it seems this one is missing:

1963 08 14 - VIVA LAS VEGAS - Dated photoshoot.jpg


I downloaded it a while ago. Don't know where I found it...

For one reason or another it's dated August 14, 1963 on the left site of the picture.

That's a nice shot, and the 8-14-1963 date is probably from when the portrait session was done by MGM's Virgil Apger. There are probably scores of such unseen photos from every Elvis film. Imagine what remains in Apger's archives.

Yes, it's beautiful, indeed. And if it's really the date of the portrait session, Honky Tonk Angel could consider correcting that as well on her unique and beautiful site. Wish I could dive into those Apger's archives...

Thanks very much for your kind words about EPSS. It should be noted though that 'onelove' is a part of the site too. There is no way I could do it without him.

As for the shots, we've talked about them in the past and decided we have to have some sort of boundaries for the project so it doesn't grow into something we can't handle. There were many similar photo shoots for other movies as well and they're more than likely taken by the same guy who did the studio shoots, but possibly outside the photo studio (ie, on set) and we decided not to include them at this stage. There is roughly 2800 photos and counting (more coming on steady basis) and that is enough to handle right now. But maybe some day.

Thanks all the same :)
