On a plea for Elvis On Tour a fan got the following answer from Todd Morgan (EPE), which gives a little hope for the future:
"There's really nothing for you guys to do.
George Feltenstein, the guy at urner Entertainment behind the TTWII-SE release and who has all kinds of faith in Elvis, moved to the staff of Turner's parent company, Warner, a while back. He's behind all the soon-to-be-released new Elvis MGM movie DVDs and remains very enthusiastic about doing a new project with Elvis on Tour, just as he was when he was working on TTWII-SE. No amount of lobbying from the fans will make it move any faster. We think he'll be successful in pushing it through with those who control the purse strings there if these latest DVDs do well. We also expect that a success with our '68 and Aloha DVDs could have some influence.
We have constantly, constantly encouraged Warner to do more with TTWII and to get on with doing a new project with Elvis on Tour. They know they have our complete cooperation and support. We also keep them constantly informed about everything we have going on, suggesting to them times that a new release from them could be the only new thing in the marketplace if that's their preference, and suggesting times that a lot of new things are happening and they could get in on the hoopla and cross-promotional opportunities surrounding that.
Long ago, we asked George if encouraging fans in their interest in petitioning would do any good. We were advised that it would not and that it might actually aggravate things.
One thing we all have to keep in mind is that while Elvis is the focus of EPE and of the Elvis fans, the movie companies have a huge catalog of films featuring many artists. Elvis is "the only one here in line" at EPE and with his fans. But, at the big movie companies, he's got to wait his turn in a very long line. And we know a million factors come into play for making any project happen. We're a one-artist company and it's mind-boggling how much we go through and how the planets have to align to get special projects of ours happen. It's much more complicated with the big multi-artist/multi-property companies.
If it were up to us, you'd get TTWII and EOT in comprehensive form like our '68 and Aloha DVD sets.
