This is interesting news, I had never thought to wonder about the origin of the footage that we all know of and I had no idea that it was just part of a longer documentary. One important thing not mentioned is the running time.

Be careful here. Its Tunzi. I think we've seen 90% if not all of the Elvis footage. What you are going to get is the whole ceremony with people you dont even know or speeches you wont care about.

Regardless, if the price is right, I'll buy it.

Just talking from experience, the Tunzi price is never right. And I for the most part agree with dgirl. There may be very little new footage Elvis wise, seconds perhaps. I hope I am wrong, but thats the Tunzi sales pitch. And his products mostly disappoint. Buyer beware unless you want to see folks like George Bush Sr. & others speak.

Dgirl and Steve V, that's exactly what my sentiments are re Tunzi in general and this project in particular. I rather spend my money on valuable Elvis CDs. But let's be fair also, for those fans who do not have anything of this historic occasion this might be the way to get it.
