I always wished that it would have worked out to have "Anyway you want me" in Love me Tender. Would have been a solid replacement for any of the songs besides of course the title song.

Elvis in the studio recording his biggest hits, "Heartbreak Hotel," "Hound Dog," "All Shook Up"...

All of these exist on film, pre-1977. Several are seen on the famous footage from 12-31-1976.

My guess is that the opening poster was talking about professional filming, considering a number of song choices throughout the thread have mentioned songs that we know are on amateur footage.

I'm not sure particular songs are what i would want to see, but particular performances - such as a complete 1969 show, professionally filmed. Or, out of curiosity, the August 19, 1974 show - as we know it was rather unique.

And I would love to have professional footage of Elvis singing "The Twelfth Of Never".

Dolly Parton , I will always love you, was sent to elvis but rejected by his management company,
Had he recorded it and had it been filmed? Think about it .
Mark
Ps the reason was the royalty fees and dolly would have to give up 50 per cent to that fat bastard manager of elvis but she refused! But then Whitney Houston recorded it and dolly said she could have bought Graceland with the rewards.

Old Shep would have made a nice introductory MTV video.

You're the reason *I'm Living and if I can be so greedy to add, the entire 22 March 1975 Vegas concert it kicks ass (as the americans would say LOL).

Thanks for the list brian, I knew that Way Down and It's Now Or Never were not filmed but I didn't know that all of the others were not filmed.

I wish his performance of Johnny B Goode in 1969 was filmed. 8)

'Let It Be Me' and 'Kentucky Rain' are two that come to mind straight away.

Would love to see Oh Happy Day from August 14th 1970 on film. Maybe one day something will surface.

There is very little film or video tape of him in the studio, actually recording songs. (The "studio" footage in EOT, is actually a recreation of a session, as I understand it.)

There's some "home movie" footage at American, but not when he was recording.

There are some photographs, of course. From throughout his career, but only a few real standouts: Wertheimer, the Army sessions before he shipped out, and a few from '68. There are some more from here and there.

But video? Hardly any. I think that's somewhat unusual.
