Super news. However, there is something that doesn't match guys...We really want to know why EonTour 1972 is just never been released so far...after so many hours of MGM filming was done (according to Jerry Schilling 200 hours of film were used). And Jerry could easily be available to do all the editing work to make a DVD of those 12 concert shows, without any interviews or nonsense that was put into the movie. The DVD could then perhaps be sold together with a 3CD Box of those great live songs on stage in those 12 cities during 1972 and marketed to the general public. An extended version of the DVD should carry also the filming of the rehearsals and fantastic long interview person-to-person with our King off stage and should ONLY be distributed to fans like it were an FTD product ! Success guaranteed, no matter what ! If anyone wants to comment go ahead and let us have our thoughts cleared and honk our horns so that Ernst, Roger, Todd, and BMG and also the Warner executives hear us loud and clear. We want it now, 35 years later. Is that too much to ask for ??

Yes you're right Steve. The great thing about DVDs is the ability to chapter choose/ skip. I think I prefer the updated one best because there is more of Elvis in it and it was put together very well. I was only 3 when the original came out at the movies so I don't have that reference point. I think I know what you mean though Jerry. Before I started getting emails from this site I didn't realise there was this sort of discussion thing about Elvis online. There does seem to be an awful lot of negative people who use it though. The comment below was my first. I like this site best for all the different news items, release details etc. but always get destracted by some of the very strange comments and arguments that get posted.

I think its great that both versions of TTWII will be available. Have to have the original, plus the newer version. Best of both worlds. Just hit the skip button over the British fan club footage.

Why, do you cringe, Allan? I never had a problem with that sequence. Back in the day I found very illuminating. There really WERE Elvis FAN(atics) in the world. Finally the original on DVD (which I prefer). Can't wait to watch it.

This looks like a good box set. Though apart from Bridge Over Troubled Water I'm not sure there's a need for the original TTWII. The updated one is terrific but the old one has that cringeworthy squirm in your seat sequence about the British fan club. Why was this embarrassing footage included anyway?

mature elvis fan. i agree withyou people put too much emphasis on how he looke din on tour dont anyone remeber this was filmed in early spring 1972 and the fact he had just got done with his month jail sentenece i mean engagement at the hilton and then the march recording sessions. not only that it was filmed 2 months after priscilla left him. all that played a part in his not so good looking look in the film. in fact the only thing that was wrong i see is his hair was way too long and the roanoke concert he was a lil bloated and tired looking. he had one hell of a busy schedule in 1972 so who can blame him for looking rugged his whole band looked like hell if there gonna talk about looks. its like whats up with jerry scheffs beard and hair lol. he looked like a young gawky version of colonel snaders from kentucky fried chicken. but anyways i hope they release on tour someday i have a bootleg copy of elvis on tour the special edition but its not the same sure they have a lot of performances on it but the qaulity aint that good you cant select the scenes you want to see and whats worse they steal footage from the mid 70's and put on there and i dont like that i want the actual performances if not the style they did on the special edition of thats the way it is at least release the orginal its long over due.

I don't think anyone is saying On Tour should not be released on DVD - Warner's probably have so much unreleased footage that the whole concept needs reworking. So just be patient - we'll probaly end up with another 2 disc version - the original and another version. I am sure Warners are not looking at it with a view of "Elvis doesn't look so good so we won't bother". It's a real pity that MGM or someone did not record the first back on the road tour from 1970.

I think he gave great shows during the filming of on tour,i think people like to put together the year it was filmed and maybe he didnt look perfect(again the image thing)and come up with "oh look at his decline" and the reason im more for on tour than ttwii is because im not a big vegas fan although he did give great shows there in aug of 70,but i dont see the alfulness in on tour,just look at the opening rocking version of cc rider from hampton roads,or the way he attacks big hunk o love,not too mention that great version of lawdy miss clawdy! while were at it i think aloha is a bit overrated,expecially the original,when i do watch aloha ,its the rehearsal show,which is very nice, and very underrated!

I was shocked because it came so soon after "That's The Way It Is" and the difference is obvious to all. It wasn't because he didn't have a tan, it was the puffiness and sluggishness that had not been there before. At the time, none of us knew of the personal problems which were weighing very heavily on Elvis' life.
ignition (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 18, 2007report abuse
Sorry but i don't understand the clamour for On Tour. What's so shocking Mature is the decline in Elvis is there for all to see. If he ever saw this it should have convinced him to stop and sort himself out. With hindsight you can now see this is where it all started to go wrong for him. Just my opinion but not a patch on TTWII. Like the look of this box set though.

What was so shocking about on tour? let me guess because he didnt have a tan in all the footage? amazing
Tony C (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 18, 2007report abuse
I think that this is a very nice set and I look forward to getting my copy. Rather than commenting on what is not in the box, we should applaud what is. The original commercially unavailable cinema versions of "This Is Elvis" and "That's The Way It Is", along with out-takes from the latter, and widescreen DVD versions of five scripted films for the first time. In the case of "Kissin' Cousins" and "Girl Happy", the recently cut songs have been put back, and for the first time "Charro" will be treated with the respect it deserves.
As for the missing "Elvis On Tour", I think it will come eventually but needs to be reformated for small screen viewing. I have a widescreen laserdisc of this with fantastic picture and real stereo sound, but even on a very large widescreen television it loses a lot of power. I actually prefer watching the VHS version that was released with "Kissin' Cousins", and has sections of the film in full frame. Although I love "Elvis On Tour", I was shocked by Elvis' physical appearance in the film when I saw it at the cinema when it was first released. The large screen did not flatter him at times. I'm not really sure what an Elvis versus Beatles debate has to to with the release of these films, so I will refrain from commenting further on that issue.

I agree 100%,but thats my point if fans think this way can you imagine how non fans view Elvis,its too much about image and not about oh i dont know talent and music!

What the hell has Elvis´ physical apperance got to do with whether they should release Elvis On Tour on dvd or not?!? It won him a golden globe for heaven sake...!!! Should we and the rest of the legions of loyal (and may I say true?) Elvis fans around the world be robbed of the opportunity to get this great live document just because you and Brian Quinn would rather see Elvis as a performer in a beauty contest than a top notch singer?!? The movie On Tour belongs in our collection!!! Regarding a serious and in-depth documentary on Elvis, of course they should and must use every available source to shed light on the artist. They have just put out a dvd titled "Elvis By The Presleys" which depended greatly on silent movies, have you forgotten already? The super 8 material from the seventies concerts is of immence importance to this project!

To be fair this does look like a really nice set, but I don't know about you guys but I can never help wishing that all those nasty corporate suits stopped thinking business for five minutes and put us fans a complete box set of ALL the Kings' films together, from all the studios. Well, we all need a dream don't we. Oh, and just so I can have my tuppence worth, while I agree that Elvis looked a bit prettier in TTWII, his overall live performances in 1972 (ie. "On Tour") stand head and shoulders above the TTWII shows. Elvis on the road had an animalistic, raw edge which just isn't there in the Vegas shows. I believe it's because in Vegas he was playing to curiosity seekers, celebrities and other high rollers, whereas on the road he was playing to the fans on their own turf which brought out the best in him. Oops, went of the beaten track a bit there, but overall a nice looking set but I wonder how long it will be before the whole thing gets released again in HD format.

Why oh why do we always have to get into the Beatles v Elvis slanging match. They both have their respective places in the entertainment world, and to discredit The Beatles is extremely naive. With reference to the Beatles Anthology series - yes a really great DVD release, and unfortunately, it would be extremely hard to get anywhere near this for Elvis. Apart from the 50's TV shows that were filmed, and the 68 TV special, TTWII, On Tour and Aloha, there is very little film of Elvis that we have not already got. Thanks to Parker, no promo films of Elvis performing hit records and very little in the way of interviews either. Doesn't look like any movie outtakes or off set interviews. Okay, things have surfaced and improved since This Is Elvis came out, so I reckon a revamped version of this would probably be the best you could come up with without the immitators for the links. There might be a lot of Super 8mm film out there, but remember to be viable, a release such as this has also got to appeal to Joe Public. They're not going to be happy with countless hours of silent movies of Elvis on stage in the 70's.

And I do agree with Brian Quinn - between TTWII and On Tour, Elvis' physical appearance took a turn for the worse - just look at his eyes. I'm sure On Tour will come - but I don't think it will be out for any commemmoratiion. I'm extremely happy I can get these new releases - films as a teenager, I watched and enjoyed. Okay, they might not be Oscar material, but Elvis looked great, and they showed a great happy go lucky entertainer.

for what ever reason.. spare your hopes on Elvis On Tour. Too much wishfullthinking after all these years and not ONE segment has come true!! For On Tour: see Jordan's..ehm you know (without commercializing him) for any outtakes. And the rest (many hope for) Dream Baby, Dream..

Personally, I'll listen to the Camden albums much more than I'll ever watch any one of the movies including TTWII or EOT (and I like the movies). Thanks Sony/BMG.

But why should i concern myself that Elvis didnt look as good as you say in on tour as in ttwii? im wanting to hear and see the music,thats my point,even fans seem taken too much by the image rather than the music,and i dont think Elvis has the respect the beatles do,i by the way was not trying to start a beatles vs Elvis argument.and i dont think we can now be sure that an updated on tour will happen and if it does i dont know the chances of it being more than a one disc dvd,these are just my oppions,and no offence to anyone!
Brian Quinn (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 17, 2007report abuse
This is a GREAT release and I already have mine on order. An updated 'On Tour' will come later. However, I was not impressed with the original 'letterbox' filming and unless this is changed to 'full screen' then they might just as well not bother. In my opinion, Elvis did not look his best in this film and it certainly is not as good as TTWII. As regards respect - may I say that The Beatles will NEVER have the respect that Elvis has as they were not original, had no stage act to speak about and did not have the courage to perform their 'so called' themed albums. Without a 'Little help from their friends' e.g. George Martin, they would not even have written such albums anyway. Luckily for us, Elvis shied away from such ventures and concentrated on what he knew to be the basics of rock 'n' roll e.g. country, gospel and R & B. No one will ever equal him for fusing all these influences together. Beatles or no Beatles, never forget Elvis is THE KING.

At least put the original on tour on dvd,and i agree with documentary.there are lots of dvd's but there all cheap pieces of crap with no thought put into to them,and the reaon the beatless have such an anthology is because Elvis will always be second best to them when it comes to respect,its that way with the public,the people behind his msuic releases and warner bro.s,i really dont see a box set comeing from on tour,if anything if they ever do anything with on tour at all ,it will be a one disc edtion and they might rework it like they did with ttwii,on a side note ,id like to see a cd set from on tour,its long over due!
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 17, 2007report abuse
Agree totally. I dont want the ridiculous Tickle Me or Kissin Cousins. I cant sit thru those movies as an adult. I want On Tour. Also a proper in-depth documentary is long overdue. I thought the 30th anniv would bring this about. The Beatles Anthology came out 12 yrs ago. You think that we would counter that by now with a proper Elvis Anthology. This Is Elvis is very bad by comparison. Nice to have it on DVD I guess, but it pales in comparison. There has never been a proper Elvis doucumentary done with intelligence and the serioness he deserves.
Trond (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 17, 2007report abuse
To release a box set of Elvis´ movies without "On Tour" in 2007...I find it almost a total disgrace. That they haven´t yet come to an agreement with the owners of the filmed material (so they would claim) is just ridiculous and shows that they simply do not care enough about the subject or Elvis for that matter. And when are we going to get a serious and in-depth documentary about Elvis and his contribution to entertainment, music and popular culture?? There have been numerous books and articles with great research that could´ve been a great platform for such project, there are countless hours of material both professionally recorded/filmed and super 8 amateur footage (great quality!) that could work incredibly well to give us a serious and well documented movie about our man. But still...in 2007...nothing...! What do we get? This Is Elvis...I can´t wait...! :-(
