Elvis Presley's three appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show'' will be chronicled on the 3-disc DVD, set to be released Nov. 21. All three shows will screen in their entirety, including appearances by other guests and the original commercial breaks.
Elvis first guested on Sullivan's show on Sept. 9, 1956, performing "Love Me Tender,'' "Don't Be Cruel'' featuring the Jordanaires, "Hound Dog'' and "Ready Teddy.'' His second, on Oct. 28, 1956, repeated the first three songs and added Leiber & Stoller's "Love Me.'' A few months later, on Jan. 6, 1957, he was filmed only from the waist and above to obscure his dance movies, deemed at the time to be too racy for younger viewers. He again sang "Hound Dog,'' "Love Me Tender'' and "Don't Be Cruel,'' plus "Too Much,'' "When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again'' and "Peace in the Valley.'' «The Sullivan Shows'» also includes a remastered 8mm home movie shot of Presley in 1955, home movies of his family and interviews with Sam Phillips, Gordon Stoker and "Sullivan'' producer Marlo Lewis.
