A new Elvis documentary for George Klein, called : Elvis Close As A Brother is in the works and the producers are asking for help locating home movie footage of (i) early Elvis Las Vegas performances at the International and (ii) any footage of 70's Elvis touring...and in particular Elvis arriving at a gig or backstage and/or with fans....
The show is the life of Elvis as told in a very personal and intimate way by George. It is laced with hundreds of photos, film clips, tv clips and newsreels of the day...
The show contains 9 Elvis performances.
The one-hour special, shot in high-definition, will provide a personal and heartfelt perspective on the legendary star’s life through the eyes of Klein, whom Presley had originally met in high school in 1948. The film is laced with a soundtrack of the star’s music, an original score inspired by the era, exclusive photos, and newsreel and archive footage.
"This candid and touching special is a real gem as it marks the first time that George Klein has ever talked in great detail about his friendship with Elvis, exclusively to camera," said Rick Stevens, the chairman of Record Plant Pictures. "He does so with integrity and honesty, as one of the elite few to have shared the highs and lows with the star."
The production is partnered with Elvis Presley Enterprises and all music is licensed from Sony / BMG (RCA).

A lot of people are looking for this kind of footage and have been for years! Some people that DO own material like this quite often refuse to share it with the world. Also, I thought George was gonna re-issue his "Memories" documentary on DVD?! That was a good show.

George Klein is really a true friend of Elvis. I've the chance to talk with him in Memphis in 1980, a real gentleman.

It's true: his earlier work could just be updated. I hope this release covers new ground.
