Not all of us want your information. I for one cannot ever remember asking you for anything. However, you are usually the first to say something negative about any footage that someone has obtained. Certain people who have never seen some of this circulating footage get excited about seeing it and you can't handle the fact that someone else has it, so you come down on them.
I have delivered info YOU ALL wanted.
Again, I've never asked you for anything, nor do I plan to.
The level of gratitude is zilch.
Maybe it's because there is nothing to thank you for. The way you talk to some of these people gets very old. They are just excited about the possibility of something being filmed and/or recorded. Let them have their fun without running them in the ground. A new excited Elvis fan is what makes it fun to be here.
I have provided valuable information for years on this site.
You've had plenty of back patting. It's just too bad that the hand prints are upside down.
I have also rumbled with the best.
LOL! Is that what you call it?
This board has gotten so bad, that it is no longer viewed as a valid source of information. Its nothing more than a school yard for the "Burning Love" boxer shorts crowd.
The EXIT sign is straight ahead.
Rest assured myself, and others with knowledge, footage, and artifacts to contribute, will no longer.
Not true. There are others who will be more than happy to answer questions and/or help out whenever they can. There are some very generous people on this board who will do things for someone and not keep reminding them of it.
Your better off listening to Ger Rijff, and his "expertise".
At last, something I agree with.
Congrats on again severing another link to the very treasure you hoped to obtain.
Stop flattering yourself! You're not going anywhere. If you do, you'll be another one who comes back sooner or later. Probably sooner.
Ger Rijff don't come knocking when the well runs dry again.
I can't and won't speak for Ger. However, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
You wouldn't be such a bad guy if you'd just lighten up and let these people enjoy what they have. Stop coming down on everyone that asks a question or states that they have added something to their collection. Your attitude towards these people totally sucks. No one wants or needs your input so much that they have to put up with your chastising. However, it seems that you give input whether it is asked for or not and then it is in a negative manner. So what that you are a BIG collector and have 10 sealed copies of Elvis Sings Burning Love And Hits From His Movies? No one cares. Change your attitude and maybe someone would care. In the meantime, go count your Elvis bubble gum cards to make sure none are missing.
We'll see you back here when you realize that there are not very many that care if you're gone. You need the board. The board doesn't need you as long as you maintain your crappy outlook on some of the newer collectors here. Adios!

Pat Randle (Bill's daughter) told me recently that she does not have a copy of the film and that she never saw the film.
I have been unable to ascertain if Polygram (Universal) still owns the footage.
I haven't heard anything new about the film in the wake of the events surrounding the 50th anniversary of the concert.
One of the great rock 'n' roll mysteries rages on....

Thanks to Pep for the PEOPLE magazine scan. Maybe Bill
Randle was a bit of a con-artist after all.

If all that's left is some footage of Elvis signing some autographs
near or on-stage, then the hype has not been worth it. Such
footage is on par with any number of public domain newsreel
P.S. Rob, a bit harsh, but well said. I like your "red" response

"I've heard some of his songs," said Brooklyn senior Brittney Bond, 17, a hip-hop fan whose tastes run more toward rapper Bow Wow.
"It's not bad," Bond said of Presley's music. "It's just not my style."
Twelfth-grader Joe Mass, 17, offered this reality check: "My grandma is really into Elvis."
