July/August 1969 - Pro-Shot film still?

Sat Jan 05, 2013 3:57 am

Found this rare colour image, apparently from opening night 1969.

It could well be just a substandard out of focus capture or print, but it's tantalizing all the same.

I don´t think so. Elvis had a belt on opening night, didn´t he?

Are there any verified shots available that show Larry Muhoberac on opening night?

I am no expert fool on times or dates..but i thought he done the opening show follow by the press conference? which corresponds to what he is wearing in your photo?

He likely changed out of his sweaty clothes, prior to the press conference.

Good point.

Yeah, he did wear a belt, with a black herringbone suit. The suit was in the style of a karate Gi. The jacket in this photo looks to long to be in the style of a karate Gi.

This photo appears in 'Fashion For A King' (FTD)
A couple of smaller b&w photos which appear to be the same suit are in Ken Sharp's 'Elvis - Vegas '69'. They could well be from the same night.

Nevertheless, it's a great photo.

The Photo is from my collection and has been used in various projects since I let it "out" years ago. Books, CD Booklets etc. It is a snaphot and not from any film still. That much I can confirm.

It's not from the opening show. Wrong suit.

If you want shots from July 31st, search for Borsari's images - he attended the show as well as the press conference that followed.

The late Peter Borsari was a terrific photographer. One wonders just how much Presley his archives contains.

Also, there may not be any pro-shot film from 7-31-1969.

But what about videotape? ;-)
