Interesting shot, nice find!

I like both sides of this one:

A long-time dialect comedian and storyteller, Myron Cohen played the Strip for years, opening for all kinds of talent, such as at the Flamingo. No doubt he was in town working when he managed to visit Elvis in August 1970.

Cohen retired in 1984, and passed away at the age of 83, on Monday, March 10, 1986.

Beautiful candid, thanks so much.

I always loved this suit and wish we had more colour photos of it in HD quality.

It's a beautiful shade of blue, IIRC.

Yes it is Doc.

I first saw the suit in an english magazine back in the 70s showing a full-body colour shot of Elvis holding a bottle in one hand.
A stunning beautiful photo.

There is also a bunch of officially unreleased TTWII footage of him walking through the lower levels of the International in this outfit.

The photos of Elvis with singer Charo and comedian Myron Cohen are almost certainly from the same time frame as the candid below, as his appearance is exactly the same:

The gentleman in the photo may be old, bald, and probably Jewish but it's not Myron Cohen...or at least it's not THEE Myron Cohen.

Close but no ceegar

Yes Jove, that´s the one.
Here it is in bigger size.

Promiseland, thanks for the photos. I think the one with Ebay across has been tampered with.
Heres the exact same photo and you´ll notice that Elvis has his eyes closed.
We had another photo some years ago with the same problem.

That would have been a great suit to wear onstage!

Always loved this outfit. Classic & perfect on Elvis.
I'm seeing two different shades of blue here. Does anyone know which one is closer to natural known color? Or is it somewhere between both?

So, he's just standing there with some anonymous old bald dude?

The clip seems older, so people change. Perhaps it's not him, but who?

I'm confused.

P.S. -- Well, whoever the bald guy is, I remember Lincoln Rd. Miami Beach!!! Wow!

I think the above photo shows the more correct colour of the suit.
The darker one with "EBAY USE ONLY" across it seem to have too much colour in it.

Am I only dreaming or did I read somewhere that Elvis wore a blue suit at one of the Aug/Sep 1970 shows?
Could very well have been this one then.

Here's the footage Doc is referring to in his post. Just thought some of you might like to put it in your favorites. I'm sure most of you have seen this, but I had it in my favorites and had not watched it for a long time until I saw Doc's post about it. It truly is awesome footage. Please forgive me if it has already been posted before.

I knew I had forgotten to mention something about the photos.

The photos were taken at two different occasions.
Notice how the string holding the suit together is much shorter in the photo where Elvis holds the bottle as well as in the footage posted by lovin´ EP.
In this photo and footage the string is coming out of the 5th hole from the bottom of the jacket while in all the other still photos it is coming out of the 6th hole and still it is long enough to come back down to his waist again.

So we have Elvis on two different occasions here.

Brian - you're not mistaken, there's a review of a show towards the end of the season where Elvis makes reference to wearing a dark suit. The review says it wasn't a good show. Here is is, courtesy as alway, of Fransesc.

Thanks DarrylMac, I knew :lol: I had read it somewhere.

Here´s the footage lovin´ EP posted in better quality and 19 seconds longer. However, some of the footage has been cut out of this one, like the last few seconds of Elvis kissing the very shy girl.

Seems he did actually wear at least a black suit at one of the August/september 1970 shows.

This comes from Strictly Elvis magazine from September 1970:
7008-SE-029-PAGE24-25.jpg


Unfortunately the fan, R. Dixon Smith, doesn´t mention which show he/she attended.
Maybe someone can find the date by checking the song-list and see which shows fits.

EDITED:
According to the fantastic website http://www.elvisconcerts.com this would be the August 19, DS

My guess is that the man in the photo is probably a businessman associated witht he hotel or Parker or something. The clip of Myron Cohen (which is from an Ed Sullivan Show appearance from Miami Beach, the very same night The Beatles were on) is from 1964 so he couldn't have changed all that much.

That would probably be the Black Brocade suit with red trim.
