He didn't use it really, it was just to complete his outfit. Besides that, it also contained a concealed weapon.
I don't know why he used it,
but it's for sure that he looked cool with it
Um....because he was Elvis and he could.
If your an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary....
If your not, no explanation is possible!
now i'm testing my memory but was the weapon a small gun inclosed in the handle? I know i've read what it was quite a few years back.
The Cane, was used as a statement "STYLE" and was just part of his wardrobe for the time!!

nice to know Leroy
I think Elvis looked cool with the cane
I'd like to go to Graceland
I think a lot of the concealed weapon stuff started from all the death threats
, but lets face it-it had a James Bond secret agent feel to it. Elvis loved that kind of thing. But he did look cool with it.
There's a picture of a cane & the weapon - a dagger, I believe - in the book Elvis by the Presleys. (not a book I would pay money for, btw, it was a thoughtful gift)
I think Elvis looked very cool with a cane, actually.....he was the epitome of "cool"...no doubt about it!!
(I'll have to check out that scene in EOT with the cane--I hadn't even noticed the sword in the cane!)
(I just now checked out that particular scene....very cool!!)
This is off the subject, but did anyone ever notice that the lady with the black curly hair and binoculars who turns her face towards the camera (during the "crowd shots" in this scene) looks eerily like Gladys Presley?? I know it's not her...but it still freaked me out when I saw it for the very first time....

I am genuinely surprised by the love for the canes around here. I dared to mention in a thread awhile back that I wasn't crazy about the canes, and I couldn't believe the nerve that I struck!
Still, I stand behind my opinion that the cigars and canes gave Elvis an older, unhip appearance for the times.

Now we know why he sang "A Cane and High Starched Collar"

Wasn't it for keeping Charlie in line ?
