I wonder what people were thinking when they gave Elvis these sometimes absurd gifts - things like giant stuffed animals, sunglasses or hats... Or as you can see here, this big wrist watch:

I think it must be a Mickey Mouse wall clock (Welby by Elgin). Maybe it was intended as a gift for Lisa-Marie!?

His best jumpsuit imho. Second best is the Dragon suit, he should have had more like this. He seems happy at the end, milking it and accepting the gratitude of the audience. Although, imho 1974 was the beginning of the decline in shows, Elvis could still pull it out of the bag when he wanted to. Love this footage.
