Is she the only person who has seen this footage?

This is a link to the "Elvis in concert" special.....go to 14:35 and listen to this lady.

"he was on TV and was kissing the polio poster child for that year"

I assume it is 1957, since this was the year he got involved with the march of dimes.

Question. Has anyone else seen this footage? Has it surfaced anywhere? I have not seen it anywhere since I started collecting.

Wasn't there a photo of that meeting? Perhaps she meant some station had shown the picture during a news segment. I've never heard of any footage.

Yes, a still photo could have been shown on TV in 1957:

6th January 1957 - March of Dimes [5].jpg


Or 1958:

8th January 1958 - March of Dimes - Mary Kosloski [better quality].jpg

that's where wording gets tricky. If it was just a still picture, she wouldn't have said, "he was on TV".
She would have said, there was a picture of him on tv.
He was on TV means there is footage. Maybe it was a live feed and not filmed.
Not sure if it was In Memphis or not, but I am near sure that the news outlets must have gotten a hold of this story, and
there must have been publicity for the event. I am thinking it might have been an event in Memphis with local television covering it.
No one has ever brought this up on any forum that I can remember.
It is probably in some news archive somewhere because no one has ever inquired about it.

Yes, those are the photo's of the events.
I don't think the woman was referring to photo's.
And notice she said... He was kissing the girl. In these photo's the girls are kissing him.
So, these photo's are not what she was speaking of.

I checked that, and no it's not the same questions that I bring up.
Previous topic just a bunch of still pictures.

Good memory. that was also started by me.
I recently came across this footage again on youtube, and
I forgot I had covered that subject, but still no answer to it.
Now that I am repeating myself, I guess I can call myself old at this point.

Someone, seeing either of those posted photos broadcast on TV, could quite possibly remember "Seeing him on TV kissing a polio poster child".
