Special Edition - Elvis That's The Way It Is
Restored, remixed, and revitalised: a new look at prime Presley
Opening night. Elvis Presley, wearing one of his flashy new junpsuits, is backstage, experiencing pre-show jitters. "If the songs don't go over," he quips, "we can do a medley of costumes."
The songs go over big - thanks to a remastered picture and remixed Dolby Surround Stereo from vividly restored elements - in this Special Edition of the legendary Las Vegas concert movie shot in summer 1970. Film archivist/restorer Rick Schmidlin (Greed, Touch of Evil) has recovered more incomparable music - over thirty minute's worth of rare performances - from studio vaults in this dazzling rejuvenation. Added rehearsal footage includes a get-down groove to Get Back. New on-stage numbers include the velvet Are You Lonesome Tonight? Plus Suspicious Minds, One Night and more from the Original Release now appear in different versions. And that costume medley? Who needs it when you have a concert like this!
Special Features: Original Theatrical Trailer and All-New Documentary Patch It Up: the restoration of Elvis: That's The Way It Is.
