Part III - These probably orginally came from the same source, but I found them without the credit and, unfortunately, failed to note where.

Can any kind soul break these out into individual photos? If so, please identify your result, for photos from the first eight sheets, as having come from Apache Elvis, thanks to Guralnick and Jorgensen!

Thanks,

The fool, rizzy, I never thought about where they came from, guess I just assumed there must have been a still photographer in the room along with the film crew, but you must be correct. The flashes from a still camera would have ruined the lighting for the movie cameras.

They are wonderful shots of our guy, aren't they? Happy, healthy, excited, having fun putting his show together. Hasn't karlos done a nice job of extracting the individual photos from the compilations? I could paper the walls of my study with those shots! Red suited Elvis, as did white and light blue. He had such lovely coloring. In red, it is easy to believe there was a Cherokee ancestor somewhere on his tree. What a living doll!

Guess I'm going to have to play my copy of TTWII once more. Goody!

Hope everyone enjoyed seeing these as much as I did!

They are. Part 3 of your photos are from 1968, 1969, and 1972, and not from TTWII.

Aha, The fool, thanks for bringing that up. You're referring to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th photos in the second composite of Part III, aren't you? Can you date and locate them? Are any of the others out of date? I'd really appreciate any information you can provide about them.

The second one, with Elvis in a red jacket, is from his arrival in Oakland California on November 11th 1972. It's also reversed. Here's some more from the same occasion from Paul:

I like that one too.

There is a poster of a similar photo with Elvis in the samew outfit.
Anyone has that? Let me know. I'd like a good quality scan of the belt.

Same day, two different belts right?

Sure wish someone (who really knew) would chime in. Like you, Julian, I'd like to know if those photos of the same shirt but two different belts were taken on the same day. Elvis perspired prodigiously; his physical, mental, and emotional output when rehearsing or performing were gargantuan. I can't imagine he'd change belts, but not shirts.

But then, I'm still trying to discover how he managed to perform most of '77 in the Mexican Sundial jumpsuit without its rotting from being daily (or twice daily) saturated in perspiration. The sheer logistics of getting that suit off of him, cleaned and pressed, ready for the next performance, are mind-boggling, especially if the early and late performances on a single day were in two different cities. Did the Lisa Marie contain a small dry-cleaning plant?

Sorry, didn't mean to digress into a whole new topic; the process of keeping Elvis in those immaculate jumpsuits while touring has fascinated and puzzled me for a long time.

Isn't the band wearing the same clothes in all those "red shirt" rehearsal shots? And IIRC in the original TRWII film don't we see him enter the rehearsal with his entourage...when he jumps off the stage and goes out on the showroom floor?

I'm pretty sure he has the red belt on then which he takes off and throws over his shoulder during "Polk Salad Annie" (which is the coolest move ever!)

Maybe those shots are before and after a break on the same day? I know the mikes are different, and the wide black waist belt almost looks like a waist version of the wrist weights he is wearing in some of those photos...

I don't think he IS wearing 2 different belts.

He's wearing weights to help him trim down even more. You can see the white weights on his wrists, and I think the black band around his middle worn later in the session is also a padded weight. You have to admire his attention to detail, and focus in getting in shape for this season.

I would definitely suggest that the red shirt footage is definitely from the same day, with a blue shirt worn for a different days stage rehearsal.

I agree with you Darryl.
I think the confusion is because the weight belt looks like a belt in Presley style :?
