    It's a real shame that more elvis concerts weren't filmed, I guess they didn't really knew how big he was while he was alive and how much money would they make on it today especially on MSG concert

    Col. Parker had such a worry of over-exposure that he never wanted much concert footage filmed.....unless of course the price was right.
    He had such a hefty price tag attached to any project that many just never tried to approach him.
    Elvis toured so often how many great performances would we have today-if Parker himself had authorised a crew to film a few shows each tour?

    I thought the reason The Colonel did not want it filmed in NY was that he didn't trust the pro-shot footage getting out to bootleggers.
    I guess NY had a reputation for getting their hands on pro-shot movies or perhaps the real reason was that, The Colonel and Elvis weren't sure of how New Yorkers were going to accept Elvis. With the mentality that New York is a tough crowd to please.

    I get the feeling at times that The Colonel would feed into Elvis' fears instead of reminding him of how great he was and it's ok to venture out.
    Steve Binder got that out of Elvis.

    I think you're both right guys!!

    Actually, as far as the bootleggers getting a hold of the footage, I don't know if that bothered The Colonel as much as the fact that he wouldn't be getting a piece of the action if the bootleggers DID get a hold of the material and release it! THAT is what probably bothered The Colonel more about the bootleggers...
