You're right, my thought as well. I quoted what the site stated.

On September 1 (sic), 1956, Elvis Presley gets made up for an appearance on the "Ed Sullivan Show."


The photograph is part of "Elvis: Grace and Grit," opening Oct. 10 at the Cornell Museum of Art at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

Neat, thank you! I wonder if "Robt Keats" is the name of the make-up man?

As noted, this photo was taken at CBS TV in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 9, 1956. Elvis is being made up for his afternoon camera and microphone rehearsal. He would be presented on "The Ed Sullivan Show" remotely, live to New York, at 5pm PT. The West Coast would see the broadcast at 8pm PT. Actor and director Charles Laughton was the guest host in New York, since Ed was still at home convalescing from his August 6 auto accident.

Some next-day reviews were interesting.
