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.

I am surprised that the five sleepy head scene didn't pop up if they were on UK prints.

No, back then it was a surprise to even find those movies (quality not very good) but VHS or VCC (Philips) tapes back in the day were not for sale. And making a copy was impossible, cause the means to do that did not exist, at least not for an average person.

I did too. All gone.


Thank you, I was starting to think I imagined all these as have never even found second hand copies for sale

This scene is available. I have it and have posted it before. The one on Keith's site came from me.

The bathtub with ina balin double? although I am more interested in the five sleepy head scene, still surprised it didn't showed up somewhere.....why is not anybody searching for clearly existing prints which , it seems, were used en masse in The UK prints?

Who knows about a link, but here's this? They're probably out there in better quality somewhere.

Thanks.
The first I saw that ( not a breast, but this pic from the scene).
Where you got that from?
