Your welcome
Yes, as I recall, he was signing the contract for his 69 engagement at the International......the filming was a puplicity act I think. You know, they wanted Elvis to be the first to perform there after it was finished, but the colonel thought it was a bad idea, so Barbara Streisand had the opening act and then Elvis had his engagement after.

From Wikipedia about "The International hotel"

The hotel, designed by architect Martin Stern, Jr.,[2] was built in 1969 by Kirk Kerkorian and opened as the International Hotel. When it opened, the International was the largest hotel in the world. Barbra Streisand was the opening-night performer, along with Peggy Lee performing afterwards in the hotel's lounge.

In 1969, right after Streisand's engagement, Elvis Presley performed for 58 consecutive sold out shows, breaking all Vegas attendance records, (130,157 paying, and ostensibly gambling customers in the period of one month), with stellar reviews coming from both critics, and the public. He broke his own attendance record in February 1970, and again in August of 1970, and August 1972. When playing Las Vegas, he lived in the penthouse suite,(room 3000) located on the 30th floor, until his last performance there in December 1976.

And in different Elvis documentaries, the story of how it came about, is told with film clips.(Thats how I learned about it)

Just a nice little thing to know about Elvis history(y)

Hmm, ok Getlo, what is your source?....if your right, I`ll ask them to correct their informations....things gotta be right(y)

Just a thought, are you counting the opening night(July 31) as well?

My own unsurpassed knowledge! :D

Yes.

There are concert lists in several books, but you can also confirm it with www.elviscrawler.com

One show on July 31st = 1
Two shows a night from August 1st through 28th = 56.
