"Love Me Tender" publicity photo - 1956

Wed Dec 25, 2013 12:05 am

Another well-known picture in high resolution.

This is just one in a series of photos taken the same day, in coincidence with the filming of "Love Me Tender". One of those photos was used for the picture sleeve of the "Peace In The Valley" EP, early in 1957.

I would say these images were taken in mid-to-late August, maybe early September, 1956.

Yes, that's a cool snap. There were tons of great photos taken during the "LMT" shoot - and you can find plenty more from here;

At the moment, close to 200 shots from that shoot alone, and we're probably still missing a ton. The date we have up is Sept. 4-6 - I think it comes from this very forum and was figured through some detective work.


And the rest of the folders...

Thanks for your post !

Incidentally, I recently posted another one of these images as part of a different topic.

It is less cropped at the bottom than the one you have, but the quality is not too good, unfortunately :

The Elvis Files magazine has also been featuring these photo sessions in STUNNING quality too.

Thanks for the information.

I'm not subscribed to "The Elvis Files", but both their magazines and their books are of a very high quality, from what I've seen / read.

It's great that so much quality stuff has survived after so many years, both in sound and image.

Nice photo, but it appears to be colurized.

Thanks for the photo, HAWEF.

I would also say it's colorized. At the very least, the blue background looks fake, too perfect. If you look at the black and white version in the first post, and to color pictures from the same series (see onelove's link above), the background looks different, like having some clouds in it.

But it's clear that some photos in this session were shot in b/w and some in color. And it would be interesting to know the original format of each photo, and why this distinction was made.

Thanks again.

That's great - thanks!
That's definitely better than our version... the more uncropped the photos are, the better and we're always looking for shots that are as complete as possible.

Tried to clean it up a little and added it to the site - thanks for posting it.
