From Memphis To Manhattan

June 30, 2010 | Other

Young and feisty, talented and sexy, Elvis Presley revolutionized pop music in the early sixties. His trailblazing renditions of blacks-only blues with rock shot him to the top of the charts and into the libidos of America's teenage girls. Elvis' signature hip roll, considered too risque for prime time TV, prompted the famous order (to CBS cameramen of the Ed Sullivan Show) to photograph the King from the waist up. This photographic exhibition, "ELVIS: From Memphis to Manhattan," looks at the early years of superstardom through his many CBS appearances, particularly those on the Ed Sullivan Show.
