New Elvis Press Conference Footage Found 1970/71

Check out this video at 11 seconds in. It's very clear pro footage of Elvis at a press conference around 1970/71 dressed in a chocolate brown suit. It only lasts a second but where on earth did this pop up from?

Can anyone shed any light on it and where we can see the full press conference.

This video was posted here a couple of days ago but this one clip of the press conference deserves its own thread.

We need to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Thanks all.

I'm not sure:'(
Could it be from the "Jaycees" press conference?

Just been onto elvis.com. The whole video seems to be part of their elvis 2009 marketing campaign. Their team must have put the promo video together. So are EPE sitting on this rare press conference footage?

There's no 'mystery' to solve here. That little snippet of footage is from the 'prayer breakfast' on the morning of January 16, 1971 before the actual ceremony that night.

That's great news. The mystery now is who filmed it and where can we find the complete footage.

That is! :notworthy
Elvis and Priscilla attend the JCC prayer breakfast at the Memphis Holiday Inn Rivermont in january 16, 1971.

After 5:00 pm Elvis holds a reception at Graceland for award winners and Jaycee officials. The official ceremony (8:00 pm) was at Ellis Auditorium.

Here some photos of the breakfast (y)

You beat me to it-I was going to say it was from the prayer breakfast for the 10 outstanding young men awards.
