This is SO much better than the Hampton Roads version they used in On Tour!!
I'd love to see a DVD of this show.

Taking Care of BusinessTil we meet you again, may God bless you, Adios.
Thanks! Wonder when we?re gonna get and upgraded On Tour on DVD.
I have seen this before. It is on the Star DVD Elvis On Tour - Through My Eyes.
I have read this list also. I just hope its true and eventually makes it out.
But also again, EPE has nothing to do with the movies at all. Only the companies who made them. Just because they are Elvis movies doesn't mean EPE owned them. They have even said that so the Elvis fans knows that. Do they want them release? They are always up for new releases but it is not their call.
Until about 2 years ago they were claiming there was no other footage for EOT and TTWII. When the "Lost performances" video came out in 92 they said this was all the outtakes which had been kept. Jerry Schilling was an Associate Producer on it and I recall he said on some show that "This may be the last 3 camera pro shot film of Elvis we'll ever see" Well how many hours were somehow leaked out a couple years back between the 2 movies, something like 30. Some of the outtakes I've seen clips of are in pretty good shape, some are not-but fans have been working on them with their little home computer systems and have made great improvements in picture clarity and color. It does boil down to spending the money and time to actually retore them.
The new TTWII 2 disc set was a disappointment because they obviously could have made an effort to show what they could do in restoring some of the clips which are the extras on the discs.- If they had done work on them and then promoted that fact "digitally restored- crisp and clear -with a great sound" Elvis fans like myself would go buy it. Everyone blames the TTWII Special Edition from a few years back for their hesitance in doing anything with all the film they have unreleased. The problem- IMO- started with airing the show on TCM before it went on sale. A lot of people recorded it right off the air and too many people that is good enough. So how many sales were lost from doing this? They were planning a few bonus's on the disc and it never happened. It was a poor way to launch it IMO. If the extras had made it to the disc-maybe even those who recorded it off the air would have bought it!
I think they probably know where 95% of all this film is (well enough to have a huge boxset)-but its a nice excuse they can use to avoid messing with it. Perhaps by the 50th anniversary they will go to work on it-but I'll be gone.
I would say they know about 65% of TTWII outtakes and only about 45% or so of Elvis On Tour. But remember the person who did the 2001 Special Editon said that alot of the film cans wasn't marked at all. So you need to think that is how Elvis On Tour is. It could be the same way. But most of the TTWII outtakes and the Known EOT have been quarantine because they have vinegar syndrome. Now, if they have copies of these now they won't be first generation. It will be a second generation.
I have a sneaking suspicion that all the film was found back in 92. There is the famous picture of the producers of EOT standing in front of stacks & stacks of dated marked film cans. Those all seemed to be labeled and they were piled high. But like I said I would be willing to pay for restored footage from the studio if they put it out.
But EPE does have something to do with the overall situation ... it's Elvis after all. EPE should be opening negotiations with MGM and any other associated parties to bring EOT and anything else to light. Now.
Instead, they've been pissing about all year with things like this abominable Elvis impersonator contest and other furphies. MGM aren't going to do anything without being prodded. EPE needs to get off its arse.
*Keeps lips tightly sealed*
The way you are talking about it will cost EPE/CPX money to have permission then it would cost MGM more money to release it so it other words, no release at all. There would be no profit at all that way. EPE has always said they love new releases but it is not up to them at all, no questions ask.
EPE/CPX has to ask permission to use the footage that was used for Elvis The Concert that comes from EOT and TTWII which costs them money to use it. EPE/CPX took the chance the first time and saw it do well. So they decided to do a world tour. They ask permission again for each world tour which each tour became successful which means profit.
I would like to see them release it as well. What Elvis fan wouldn't. But the general public doesn't want to see it. Until that happens they won't consider a release of the footage.
It is not from San Antonio!
