Back then you had both VHS and Betamax, but also VCC systems. And one could rent those tapes obviously. The place I found had all the Elvis movies, some in bad quality, some very good.
I saw some of the movies back then, but this store had Charro and Speedway, never saw those, so I rented those.
The Charro version had all the later cut footage in it, making it much rawer and exciting. It had the scene in the bar with the girls being naked, the complete bath tub scene and the branding of Elvis in a more spectacular close up way.
Speedway had the complete Five Sleepy Heads song when the kids are in bed.
Just wanted to share this.
Sorry if this is a silly or obvious question.
Were these videos available for fans to buy? Could some of Elvis' fans have bought these treasures and be able to share?
Reportedly these (VHS) videos were sold in the Far East at the time.
