COULDN'T AGREE WITH YOU MORE TOMMY!!!
When ELVIS ON TOUR came out originally in 1972, the film was excellent for its time! (Many other people must have thought so too, since it won a Golden Globe!) But, like THAT'S THE WAY IT IS, I think ELVIS ON TOUR is starting to show its age and would definitely benefit from an updating, like TTWII did back in 2000!
One thing I did have a problem with when the updated TTWII came out in 2000 is that Turner/MGM deleted the original TTWII film from their catalog, and now you have to depend on eBay or other second-hand markets to find the original version. I really think they should have left both versions out there, for fans who wanted to see the original as well as the upgraded version. I do hope that if Turner/MGM ever gets around to releasing an upgraded version of ELVIS ON TOUR, that they won't delete the original from their catalog like they did with TTWII!!! I think having the originals available serves as a good reference point for fans to see just what was done during the updating process! Plus, it is fun every once in a while to pull out the original and watch it, just for ol' time sake!!!
P.S. I see that you accidentally posted this topic twice Tommy, so I deleted the duplicate posting for you!!
