View Full Version : Rare footage of ending of Alternate Aloha (extended ending)

I have always wondered why Aloha From Hawaii and the Alternate Aloha both ended with the rerun of clips from the show and no additional onstage footage of the band. Well now we know for a fact that it does exist as is evident on this clip.(y)

Many thanks for posting, WOW! Its Great.
You can see it on the extended release DVD :
“ELVIS, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD” is a two-disc set featuring all the performance material formally shot in conjunction with Elvis’s “Aloha from Hawaii” television special – an historic concert event seen in more than 40 countries by 1.5 billion people when it initially aired in 1973. The original American broadcast version of the show is included for historical context. The DVD set features the complete concert that was adapted for that special and the complete rehearsal concert performed two days before. Both concerts are presented with newly re-mastered sound and picture and are being released in their complete, uncut form for the first time. Also included is the raw, uncut footage shot for the “Elvis arrives” sequence of the special’s original opening and the raw, uncut performance footage of songs recorded for the after-show session that Elvis taped as a resource of extra material for the American broadcast.

Tasty morsel, thanks!
Yes its additional footage which does not include Elvis. They also probably have additional footage of people moving through the ticket area, and vendors who are selling and hawking programs and photobooks I am sure there is probably plenty of footage that is not used of various things-the question is truely how much differing footage is there of Elvis left over that has not been used.
I think we will see in the next year-I hope there is plenty of new things for us to be surprised by-but if most of it is just periferal shots of other things with little new Elvis-its going to be a letdown for many.

Thats Al Dvorin who walks out at the end. Wonder if he makes The "Elvis Has Left The Building" announcement or just hawks souvenirs?

If you watch this footage on the 2004 Deluxe Aloha DVD, you can hear it a lot more clearly at 1:46 when he seems to say "Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis......" but the footage ends before he can finish the sentence. Of course he was about to make the "Elvis has left the bulding" announcement as usual- why would'nt he?
