Does anyone know if there is actual footage available of Elvis from 1970 at an LA concert, wearing the "Long fringe (wing) jumpsuit? It's just gorgeous. I've seen lots of pictures of it but no footage from the concert. He got tangled in the fringe and it was later cut and worn again in 1971. Also, does anyone who's been to Graceland remember seeing it there?

You can find some footage on various bootleg DVDs including Behind The Image Volume 1.

There's a second or two of footage shown there.

The suit has never been at Graceland. No one knows where it is.

No, the suit was not worn in 1971. He only wore it once in Los Angeles in 1970.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. I keep reading that the fringe was too long so it was trimmed and then it was worn again in 1971. A lot of misinformation out there.:). Just checked out youtube. Pretty cool. Some of the pics available are really nice. There's one where the back lighting makes the suit look "electrified".
