Here are two images from "Jailhouse Rock" we found on the FECC Forum. The first is from the new Blu-ray version, the second from the UK PAL standard DVD.
These were taken very quickly using a Pioneer plasma, but give an idea of the huge improvement in the image of the new HD version. The colour temp have not been altered.

I have the Blu-Ray versions of both J.R. and Viva Las Vegas on order and should arrive soon but unfortunately I don't have a Blu-Ray player to play them on yet! Judging by the pics above there IS a vast improvement. So why weren't TTWII and This Is Elvis mastered in high-def as well? Hey Warner, are you there?

Wow - impressive! But has Jailhouse Rock been released in HD?

I think the second was taken for a Betamax-tape..

They invented Blu-ray so we could get back to the standard of Betamax
