Did You Know?


Reportedly, Elvis performed "MacArthur Park", a big hit of the day for Richard Harris. But as they say, "there was no film in the camera". No audio or video taping was done of this spontaneous performance. The 2003 DVD release includes all the unused footage - alternate and aborted takes, false starts, everything - as well as the four 'in the round' shows with Elvis in black leather, only certain portions of which were used in the final show. During one of these Elvis sings three or four lines from the chorus of 'MacArthur Park' in a falsetto voice while clowning around between songs. See more »


Elvis Presley: [joking while reading a script] It says here "Elvis, we're to film you from the waist up. You are not to touch hands with body... uh, I mean body with hands."

Spectacular in every way
7 August 2001 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I have absolutely no complaints about this special because I think it did a great deal of justice to Elvis Presley's stellar career. Everything about it makes it great from the pit session to the musical production numbers. Elvis even closes it out with the awesomely compelling 'If I Can Dream'. This is very easily Elvis at his absolute best. I highly recommend it to any fan.
