Thank you for sharing this.

There are VERY interesting images in this issue, all apparently taken on Sunday, January 6, 1957 in New York, and some information of great interest in the article.

He rehearsed on stage three hours -- an unprecedented time -- just before the Sullivan Show. To help set cameras and to give kids at the rehearsal a time he sang song after song.


Wow! In essence, Elvis gave a mini-concert for the fans in the studio during the rehearsal that night! How did they get in? Who were they? Here's a terrific shot from this rehearsal, where we may see the cameras are on!

And it is even more clear now that the decision to shoot "from the waist up" was made not long before the actual broadcast, based on this information about such a long rehearsal, and the elaborately-detailed set designed for the occasion. Someone (a sponsor) undoubtedly saw too much Elvis, and complained to Ed and his staff. On the actual program, viewers see virtually none of this gorgeous set, not to mention hardly a peek at Elvis' back-up band.

Here's Elvis not only with Ed Sullivan, but producer Marlo Lewis. Maybe they're explaining to Presley about the sponsor's concern and their compromise idea.

And, finally, backstage before broadcast, we see Elvis captured with famed Chicago jazz guitarist and bandleader Eddie Condon, who brought his daughter Maggie to meet her hero. Does he look pleased?
