Does anybody know how many times did Elvis went into the audiance while shooting for TTWII - once or twice?

Because on TTWII SE one of the members of his band said that that happened only once, never before or since. BUT I saw too differents videos of him walking through the audiance (one on TTWII Original Version and one on TTWII SE) but he wasn't wearing the same jumpsuit in the both of the videos.

That's what confused me and now don't know what is true, so will be really thankful to hear what you think is true.

Thanks in advance for your answers. :king:

HI Debra, he did it at least twice.....in the original TTWII movie, he went down same way he came back on the new version....and came back the same way that he went down in the new version.......laughing and saying to the band ..."You didn`t think I`d make it, did you....I didn`t either" hope my way of saying it makes sence to you....

This clip is from the original TTWII.....

He only did it once to prove that he could. The Col. got upset with him when he did it. And so did the members of his group. But he did it and i think that it was very cool of him to do it. It just showed that he was not afraid of his fans. He knew that they would not hurt him. :)

I've always wondered about that too, I believe it is two different shows with with same jumpsuit.

He might have meant that, he just did it for the movie,TTWII. Another thing that comes to mind is a quote I read from Paul McCartney in is autobiography, he said, "It's crazy cause fans remember more details about your like than you do." So that band member just might remember as a one time thing but it happened twice.

IF i remember correctly Elvis went down in the audience with Joe Esposito, and the audience got close to him and started shaking his hand and the women were hugging him. He was getting a little worried at the end. Then he hurried back on stage and said "you didn't think i'd make it, i didn,t either. That's the only time i've ever seen him do that. Of course i haven't seen the other version on the extended TTWII.

I believe that it happened twice. Just looking these clips, I think it was two different shows.

After you see both versions you definetly think they are 2 seperate occasions.:king::notworthy

I've wondered this also.

Don't surprise me Colonel got upset though...a bit risky for Elvis to do with such excited fans :P:lol::lol:

Incorrect.

He did it at least twice ...

There's one cd that I have, where the band keeps playing for quite some time in What'd I Say - which I only assume that he went off the stage there too, and presumably into the audience ...I think it was "Elvis At The International" but I'll check it when I have the chance.

...yepp, it's on the "Elvis At The International" and that cd is from the midnight show on August 23, 1969

yep he did it twice cos i have the original ttwii and the new dvd version and he goes into the audience from a different side and the fans don't mob him so much on the new version of ttwii its so complicated to know who did what when

I also think he did it twice. There are two different scenes in the two movies, that's for sure (in the 1970 and in the 2001 release). Or maybe he did it more than twice, just the others were not filmed. But it can be seen in the original movie that he was really worried when he got back on the stage.

I just looked over both DVD's........Elvis was wearing the Chain suit in the original TTWII when walking through the audience.......and on the Special Edition DVD he was wearing
the Concho suit when walking through the audience.So this makes twice that he did this.
Not sure if he did it anymore after that.But he did it TWICE.

I think that both happened on the same night, but different shows, one from DS and one from MS.
