Thanks, davide, some great shots there !

With apologies, I pinched a section of one of them:

Elvis is thinking: "Hey, I could do with a little guy like this to bring my water etc..............."

Too good not to be on page 1


I saw Elvis live in concert the year before he died. Even then, he was bigger than life, and had amazing charisma. Haven't seen anything like it since, ....until Adam.........Nocturnal 2010

Well, David, after a close study of the footages and photos, in my opinion you're right, the photos from Ger's book are not from the live broadcast and there was, indeed, a 'full dress rehearsal' performance on June 5.

Let's take a look to the (almost) full Milton Berle Show, you'll find here:

(there is a glitch on the Hound Dog, skip that part)

On the live transmision, we have:

Image
1. Hound Dog

Image
2. Sketch with Debra Paget coming on stage

Image
3. Sketch with the "Ritz Brothers"

Image
4. I Want You, I Need You, I Love You

Image
5. The Triple Crown Award

Image
6. The Curtain Call

All the above photos and screens are from the live show - we can see Milton had 3 different ties.
- On the photos 18/19 from Davide's post we can see Milton had a stripped tie (black and white) - in the live broadcast had another tie.
- on the 19A/19B photos Milton had the same tie like in the live transmision, but he had a paper in the pocket / hand (maibe schedule or something, and in the live transmision he don't have anything in his pocket)
- on the sketch with the "Ritz Brothers" Milton had another stripped tie, but different from the one before.
- in the photo 1 from Davide's post, The Courtain Call, Milton still had the stripped tie, and in the live show he had a bow tie.
- and the Hound Dog photos, i think David is right about the hair and positions.

That's it for now :smt006

Perhaps all the shots in the book presumed to be from the live show are from the pre-broadcast dress rehearsal. Still, they are great to look at.

Of course the photos are fabulous, Elvis at his best, right? I just try to find the moves of Elvis from that day, that's all - and you know why... :wink:
