Looking at the footage it looks to me that it has been colourised. I may be wrong, but...

From about 20seconds on, I'm going to take a stab at 'Don't Be Cruel'. Looks like he's bringing his arm down to stop the music before the last chorus.
Man I'd love to see all of that footage!

Yeah, it's "Don't Be Cruel".

If you go from the obvious arm-fall, he mouths, "Don't be cruel ... to a heart that's true".

Stunning footgage.

Superb footage!

Incredible quality [and angle] for an apparently fan-shot 8mm film.

Thanks to Simon1 for the link, and "ewjvideo" for the upload.

Great find. Thanks Johnny If the Estate ever gets around to doing a six part Elvis Anthology T.V. and DVD/Blu Ray series, this gem should be included for sure.

Yes, but that is "the way of FECC". If a new fan steps in here and looks around, he/she'd probably get the idea that Elvis was a completely worthless artist who never did anything good after 1957. Everyone who thinks otherwise is wearing "rose colored glasses" and all that... you know the drill.

Gotta give Graceland props on this one. They found a compelling way to get us into that new exhibit. Cynical bastard that I am, I thought it was going to just be "old Cokes served in shiny new cans."

Wow what a fantastic picture. I was born after Elvis died and I feel like we still have such a small amount of his work available to us, this just confirms that. Geez if someone would just package an put this awesome stuff out there I would buy it.

How did someone get so close with a camera during daylight hours? Any chance this is news camera footage from the colonels collection?

News camera footage would be black and white, not color.

Perhaps it was shot by Ron Jacobs or Tom Moffatt, who promoted the 1957 Hawaiian gigs and were the emcees at the shows that day.

Here are some screen grabs of the color film taken at the afternoon show, Sunday, November 10, 1957:

Aren't those responses a little oversensitive? All elvis-fan did was express admiration for how great Elvis was in 1957. He didn't say anything negative about 1968-70 or beyond.

It would be great to see more of the footage, but a real shame that there is pretty much zero hope of any matching audio.

I'm sure this will be included in the ultimate anthology project Graceland is working. Should be out by 2040 but could be delayed. :smt006 :facep:

Is it possible that only this tiny bit was actually shot? (It is possible that it is all that survives, but not necessarily probable.) Sure would like to see a show from that time!

(It's not that '57 is "better" than, say, '68, but it is certainly EXTREMELY rare. I think that was the point.)
