If they had broadcast him head-to-toe, we'd be lacking a big part of the legend: "From The Waist Up."

Some great photo's, there. Which springs to mind, the last Sullivan Show we rarely see,partically the one were he has his guitar and sings a melody of his hits.

Great stuff. great! Hard to be believe the coolest cat around was the same guy wearing an uncool sundial jumpsuit some 20 years later. To know the difference, at one time we all wanted to look & act like Elvis. By the mid-70's none of us did anymore.

You are right -- the most often-used January '57 clips are his great rendition of "Don't Be Cruel" (arrangement courtesy of Billy Ward and His Dominoes) or "Peace In The Valley."

Do you really need to rehash this comment over and over again? It's been 37 years. Let it go and enjoy what the man left us during his too brief stay on this earth.

It's kind of sad how the beautiful set built for this final Ed Sullivan appearance basically went unused when the producers chose to show Elvis "from the waist up," and (almost completely) cut out the band.

This is one time when I actually agree with the Almighty Doc. Although I think showing Elvis only from the waist up had the opposite effect of what was intended - just made it seem like something really wild was going on down below.
