Elvis Presley’s ’68 Comeback Special to Hit Movie Theaters This Summer

Release marks concert film’s 50th anniversary

Elvis Presley’s legendary ’68 comeback special will get a special screening in movie theaters this summer to mark its 50th anniversary. NBC/Getty

Elvis Presley‘s legendary television special Elvis, better known as the “’68 Comeback Special,” will be screened in movie theaters this summer to mark the 50th anniversary of its airing. The screenings will take place on Presley’s death, August 16th, and again on August 20th.

The owner of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Authentic Brands Group–which also owns and manages branding for Marilyn Monroe and Shaquille O’Neal, among others–is arranging the screening with Fathom Events. They have yet to announce the screening times.

“Seeing Elvis onscreen is one of the most memorable and influential brand experiences and we look forward to bringing this special and future events to audiences around the world,” ABG’s senior vice president of entertainment, Marc Rosen, said in a statement.

“ABG is recognized as a global leader in the brand space and the company’s commitment to creating immersive brand experiences aligns perfectly with Fathom’s dedication to providing our audiences with exclusive, interactive and memorable cinema events,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “We look forward to working together on many exciting projects for cinema audiences worldwide, beginning with this rare concert experience for Elvis fans.”

Presley’s comeback special came at a time when the King had been appearing in movies rather than recording music or performing live. It opened with footage of him dressed in a slick, black leather jumpsuit–curling his lip the way his fans remembered–and included a loose, “sit-down” set where he played his early hits with members from his backing band in the Fifties.

“Elvis was hardly ever nervous–but he was then,” drummer D.J. Fontana told Rolling Stone in a feature about the special last year. “We played a couple of songs, and it got loose after a while, and it turned out fine. He just had been out of the public eye for a long time.”

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

For years, people have been passing around the erroneous rumor that the anonymous figure seen in the Home Alone movie is Elvis.  I have never believed that it is Elvis in the one scene of that movie.  Years later, when I brought it up in a conversation with Jesse, he confirmed by belief that it is NOT him.  He said that he did not even know what people were seeing and talking about.  So, I sent him a copy of the movie so that he could see what all the hullabaloo is about.

Now, finally two friends of mine have shared information with me which may prove who the man in the Home Alone movie actually is.  The man in this photo comparison below is Mr. Gary Grott.  My good friend, Mike M. sent me the man’s name and posted his photo on my Facebook page.

Sadly, Mr. Grott passed away a few months ago.

Another of my Facebook friends, Elisabeth W. used a photo of Mr. Grott with his son to create the below comparison.  It certainly does look like the man in the Home Alone movie scene.  You may see it below.

My thanks to Mike and Elisabeth for all the information which they shared.

Below is a photo of Mr. Grott at an older age than in the movie.  This photo is from Mr. Grott’s Facebook page.  The below photo certainly bears a resemblance to the scene in Home Alone.

Below is Elisabeth W.’s description of her work shown below.  I can definitely see the match.

“I did an overlay of a still image from the Home Alone actor and this Gary Grott, from his son’s FB page, Roman Krasnitsky. I changed the image to b&w to get a better contrast. They are the same person. Without a doubt.

Maybe this rumor can be put to rest now.”

How did a shy boy from Tupelo, Mississippi become one of 
the biggest stars in music? The two-part documentary – Elvis Presley: The Searcher – from HBO, follows the King’s creative journey, from his 1940s childhood through to the legendary 1976 recording sessions made in Graceland’s Jungle Room.

There are new interviews with the musicians and technicians who worked with Elvis, the stars influenced by him, and the family and loved ones who knew him best.

Director Thom Zimny, whose CV includes the superlative Bruce Springsteen film The Ties That Bind, had exclusive access to unseen footage and photos, giving a fresh take on a story that Elvis fans know so well.

Just want to share that Jesse phoned me this evening.  We had a good brother and sister visit.  He is OK except for still feeling fatigued and lethargic.  He will be seeing his Dr. again.  There isn’t any news to share this time.  We talked mostly about things in our everyday lives.  As always hearing from him was the highlight of my day.  He is so sweet and kind.  I wish everyone could know him as I do and have for so many years.  Never let yourself be mislead by the media.

Elvis Presley Hits to Movie Theaters Worldwide with Special 50th Anniversary Screening of Iconic 68 Comeback Special

Elvis Presley Hits to Movie Theaters Worldwide with Special 50th Anniversary Screening of Iconic 68 Comeback Special

Elvis Presley‘s legendary “’68 Comeback Special,” directed and produced by Steve Binder, will hit the big screen this summer in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The two-day cinema event will take place across the globe on August 16, with an encore screening on August 20. Each screening will include the legendary television special, plus an exclusive look at the making of the special, featuring a walkthrough of the NBC soundstage with insights from Binder and others influenced by Presley, his music, and this iconic event. This brand new content is produced by Spencer Proffer, CEO of Meteor 17, and ABG’s Marc Rosen, SVP of Entertainment.

Tickets for U.S. screenings of “ELVIS 50th Anniversary Comeback Special” can be purchased beginning Friday, June 15, 2018 at http://www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices.

Fathom Events and ABG will present “ELVIS 50th Anniversary Comeback Special” in more than 500 select U.S. movie theaters on Thursday, August 16 and Monday, August 20 at 7:30 p.m. local time (both dates), through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). A complete list of U.S. theater locations will be available June 15 on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change). International cinema locations and ticket-on-sale dates will be announced at a later date.

“The ’68 Comeback Special’ embodies the spirit and talent of one of the most legendary artists in music history,” said Steve Binder, director and producer of the special. “I hope that Elvis fans and music lovers everywhere will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of the King through a unique yet personal lens captured in this content.”

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this legendary special, a new book by Steve Binder titled COMEBACK: The Making of the 1968 Elvis Specialdelves into the dynamic (and often intimate) performances by The King of Rock & Roll during the landmark “Comeback” NBC broadcast. The book features a dedication by Priscilla Presley and stunning catalog of iconic Elvis Presley imagery.

Originally airing on December 3, 1968, the “’68 Comeback Special” was Elvis Presley‘s first live television performance in seven years, which captured him playing with a full band in front of an intimate audience of diehard fans. As part of the special, Presley also pioneered the “Unplugged” performance style with an exclusive acoustic set. The soundtrack album went Top 10 following the special airing, shooting Presley back to the top of the singles charts months later with “In the Ghetto” and later in 1969, his first number one hit in seven years with “Suspicious Minds.”

“We are thrilled to partner with ABG to bring such an iconic concert experience to theaters around the world this summer,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Elvis was a true musical genius, and it’s exciting to share the talents of such a legend with moviegoers and fans everywhere.”

“We are always looking to uncover fresh and exciting ways to share our content with fans through unique experiences,” said Marc Rosen, SVP Entertainment of ABG. “Our new partnership with Fathom Events has provided us with an opportunity to take the cinematic experience to the next level, and we look forward to watching the excitement unfold.”

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2018

I have just finished adding one more video to my YouTube channel once again proving that, just as Jesse told me, some of the Orion songs were sung by him.

In this video you will see some images and hear the song recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis BEFORE August, 1977. This fact was stated by Elvis himself to a Hollywood Journalist, James Bacon. You will read Mr. Bacon’s column stating this fact and that Elvis said he did this recording to “help Jerry Lee out“.

However, it was later stated that Jimmy Ellis overdubbed Jerry Lee’s earlier recording. This lie was perpetuated by Sun International Corp. when they released this same song three different times.

The original release was in 1978 featuring the black and white record sleeve which I have displayed in this video with record on black vinyl and on 45 RPM. Also, the original black vinyl was released by SUN RECORDS WITH THE ORIGINAL MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE LABEL.

Then it was again released by Sun International on gold vinyl, again in 1978.

Then it was released again on the DUETS Jerry Lee Lewis and Friends album once again in 1978. Notice that it just said “…and Friends” once again. With NO mention of the name ORION.

The next interesting step was when it was advertised for sale by Sun International on the DUETS Jerry Lee Lewis and Friends album as part of the ORION package.

So we have proof that Elvis himself said he recorded this song; later Jimmy Ellis claimed that he overdubbed this song; then Sun selling it as being ORION. What a string of misinformation to be put out about just this one song.

Please do bear in mind that I have proven on one of my previous videos regarding the song “What’d I Say” that Jimmy Ellis was lying when he said that he overdubbed Jerry Lee’s earlier song. As I proved, at the very end in the unedited version of that song, one can clearly hear Jerry Lee say “Man, you’re with it tonight, ELVIS”.

There is probably no end to the lies which were told regarding the involvement of Elvis himself in the ORION recordings.

I have included scans of 4 pages from the book IS ELVIS ALIVE by Gail Brewer-Giorgio in which you will read her experience when Sun began the ORION story. You will see Mr. James Bacon column stating that Elvis told him that he recorded Save the Last Dance For Me with Jerry Lee. You will also see the advertisement of this song included on the Duets album in the ORION package.

I hope everyone will take the time to read this description and to pause the video and read the text material which I have included.

Also, listen to the song and enjoy the Elvis music.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=raDT0NUsCB4&feature=youtu.be

There is one interesting quote of Jerry Lee which I keep forgetting to include.  This is something of which I do not have a published copy, so I will accept if some do not believe it.  But, I read this many, many years ago in an interview with Jerry Lee.  Jerry Lee remarked “Elvis was smart; he knew when to get out.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

I want to share with everyone that Jesse called me earlier this evening and we had a happy visit.  Jesse saw his Dr. and learned the cause of his fatigue and his feeling of lethargy.  Now that he is on the correct regimen for his condition, he said he feels 100% better…like a new man.  I am so happy and relieved to hear him tell me this news.  He sounded wonderful and his voice is so strong.  As always, Jesse’s call was the highlight of our day.

My heart is very sad to know that D. J. is gone. He was a loyal and true friend to Elvis. I always remember, from many years ago, during one of our visits to the grave-site at Graceland, we saw a beautiful large floral arrangement from D. J. which had an inscription on the ribbon which said something like “King of the whole world”. That was so sweet and touching to me and told me how much D. J. loved Elvis. God rest his sweet soul.

As always, my heart hurts for Jesse every time he loses someone precious from his past life.

Graceland

D.J. Fontana, who played drums for Elvis for 14 years, has passed away. “The staff of Elvis Presley’s Graceland is deeply saddened by the passing of Elvis’ friend and legendary drummer, D.J. Fontana,” said Elvis Presley Enterprises CEO Jack Soden. “D.J.’s groundbreaking recordings and performances with Elvis, Scotty Moore and Bill Black launched Elvis’ career and forever changed music and the world. D.J. was a dear friend to all of us at Graceland. We send our heartfelt condolences to D.J.’s family, friends and his millions of fans worldwide.”

I only have a second to explain two important things.

(1)  I have not been able to access my website since 4:11 PM on Thursday afternoon.  I am only on here now via using Tom’s cellphone as a “hotspot” to connect.  I will be back soon as possible.

(2)  Joel Gilbert with Hwy.61 Entertainment has forced me to remove my videos which had the songs from the “ELVIS FOUND ALIVE” CD from my YouTube channel and from my website.  Thus the music player is gone as well as several of my entire pages.  I will try to edit the pages and get them back up without the songs.

Also, as a result of his complaint, I chose to close my entire YouTube channel which I had for over 9 years.

I am very sorry about all of this.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

I have been able to access my web site again and have started working to revamp the page which contained some of the “ELVIS FOUND ALIVE” CD songs.  I plan to recreate my YouTube channel on a new account. 

I will be back to posting new articles very soon.  Thank each of you for your patience.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>

TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 2018 @ 2:56 AM

Well, I have been trying since Saturday to get back on my web site to do some work and post some articles.  However, I have not been able to get onto the site until about an hour ago and I have been working on some repair work since.  There is evidently a problem with compatibility with the server on which my web site operates and our slower AT&T U-verse service.  The connection times out before getting to my site.  This is causing me a lot of concern.  I think the huge size of my site is a large part of the problem.

Please understand that if I am not posting for more than a day or two, something is wrong that I cannot access my site to do any work.  I always worry that somebody will start a new rumor that I have died.  There is already a rumor that I died and my friends are running the web site now. LOL  With all my recent stress from Joe Gilbert’s demands and not being able to get onto my site, I wish those friends WOULD take over for me. Ha, ha!!!

I have revamped one page which had some of the songs from the ELVIS FOUND ALIVE CD in order to remove all of the songs as demanded by Joel Gilbert with Hwy. 61 Entertainment.  The page HEAR ELVIS/JESSE’S CURRENT VOICE AS IT SOUNDS TODAY is now back in place for viewing.

I have created a brand new YouTube channel and uploaded some of my videos which were lost when I closed my original channel.  I plan to continue uploading videos to reconstruct my prior channel as nearly as I can.  I would appreciate it if my visitors would please visit my new channel and subscribe to help me get started growing again.   I lost so much with closing my original old channel.

Here is the link to my new channel:

Linda Hood Sigmon

I have posted all of the details of the Joel Gilbert event on my Facebook pages as it all unfolded.  I won’t rehash it all again on here.  I have met his demands and am moving on.  It was a very disturbing event for me.  But, I am fine now.  His statements have not shaken my faith one bit in the fact that Elvis/Jesse did record the songs on the CD ELVIS FOUND ALIVE.  Jesse told me himself that he recorded those songs.  He told me some of the details of the recording session and how excited the musicians were to be working with him.  His voice on the CD is absolutely unmistakable.  I really don’t understand Gilbert’s motive for trying to convince me that Jesse did not record the songs and furthermore that Jesse is not Elvis.  I KNOW better and his time in Emailing me those statements was wasted.  I took him seriously about his copyright to the songs.  But, that was the only thing I took seriously from his two Emails.  

I am very sorry if the Gilbert crisis caused anyone to have second thoughts about the CD being Elvis/Jesse’s voice or that Jesse is Elvis.

Let not your hearts be troubled, the truth does not change and this web site is the truth from Elvis, who IS Jesse, himself.

Again, if I am not posting for any length of time, it will be because I cannot access my web site.

I thank everyone for your understanding and patience.

I am still unable to access my web site through my computer and AT&T.  I am again on here for just enough time to post this quick message by using Tom’s cell phone as a hot spot.  I spoke with my administrator Mark yesterday and he did run a process which he hoped would help…but, it did not.  The problem is that my web site has just grown to be too large and cannot be handled by my AT&T speed and the server on which my site operates.  I know not what can be done about this.  So, if I am missing in action, please don’t let the evil-doers pass around their lies and rumors that I have died, etc. LOL  I will be back as soon as a solution can be found.

I do want to share with everyone that Jesse did phone me last night on the same day that he received my letter about the Gilbert crisis.  Jesse and I have discussed the situation.  Jesse was not pleased at all about Gilbert’s action against me.  Jesse told me that he would do anything to help me.  But I told Jesse that I did not want this to stress him in any way and that I will be alright.  I will NOT ask Jesse to do anything to help with this situation.  As far as I am concerned the Gilbert situation is over and done.  Gilbert is a liar and I won’t waste any more of my time or emotions on him.

Jesse is still feeling so much better.  He is planning on going out boating with some of his staff.  This will be so much fun and good for him.

I am in the process of populating my new YouTube channel with my videos (all except the 4 which had the 3 songs on them).  My new YouTube channel is under my full name of LINDA HOOD SIGMON and one may find it on YouTube by searching for that title.  So far, I have 16 videos.  I would appreciate my visitors going on my new channel and subscribing and liking one of my videos to help me get re-established.  Of course, I will never get back to the number of views and subscribers which I had from my 9 years on my prior channel.

I will sign off for now…until we can find a solution for my connection dilemma.  Again, please do keep checking back.  I will be back just as soon as possible.

Thank everyone for your patience.

I want to share this video because of two things.

First, Elvis is singing the song “Fever”. Two times in my 26 year friendship with Elvis, who IS Jesse, has asked me what my favorite song of his is. I said “whichever one I am listening to. But there is one song that I don’t like…” He asked me both times which song is that. I responded both times “Fever…I don’t like that song.” Both times, he thought about it a little bit and said “I never did like singing that song.” So, it is cute to me that he didn’t really put his heart into singing this song during this performance and just cut up and sort of halfheartedly sang it.

Second, I ask that everyone listen to Elvis at minute 3:25 when he talks about wearing a bullet-proof vest on stage in case someone wants to shoot him. This does validate that he did take the death threats seriously. Another good reason to begin thinking of leaving his life as Elvis.

Below is a very important piece of documentation of what Elvis said on stage in the video which I posted yesterday (article above preceding this).  In that performance, Elvis explained about wearing a bullet proof vest. 

My friend Steven R. did some exploring and found the below photo of Elvis’ bullet proof vest.  This display of the vest is in a restaurant in Memphis called Flynns Restaurant.  https://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/flynns-memphis?select=Km5sgMkSnDkSMv9OmhbVYQ

This is the link to the actual photo of the bullet proof vest in Flynn’s https://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/flynns-memphis?select=jLB_6IJERMIOWHLT0ELDiQ

Here is the full image of the display of the vest:

Here is a sharper image of the vest:

Here is a closer cropped image of just the top of the vest:

Here is a cropped close up of the plaque.  It is not very clear, but we can see that it has Elvis Presley on it.

MONDAY, JULY 2, 2018

I have been working diligently to create a second web site to act as a continuation of this site.

I chose this action because I can seldom access this web site to post things because of our slower AT&T Internet connection and the monstrous size of my web site. My site just takes too long to load and the connection times out.

I have pretty much completed the construction of the new continuation site and posted my first article on there today.

I invite everyone to come see the new site and visit often to see any new articles which I post. This site will consist primarily only of the CURRENT NEWS AND EVENTS PAGES for each coming month. The first month on there is, of course, July.

There will be NO login on the new site.  Just go directly to view the material.

NOTHING IS CHANGING ABOUT THIS SITE.  IT WILL BE HERE AND AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES AS USUAL.

I hope you will like it.
