"This performance has been included on many Elvis Dvds, However its presentation on a few is quite poor. The worst I have seen is from the film "This Is Elvis". The performance is cut short, truncated, interrupted by Johnny Harra [Elvis impersonator], extra "ows and ahs" from the audience are added. Also the bottom half of his legs are cut off, so we don't get to see properly his now famous leg shuffle [2:04m]. Whats the point of including footage in a documentary if it isn't presented in its true and raw form?.
Also sometimes like on the TV special "Elvis: Greatest Hits - Centre Stage" the first verse is edited out and begins at [0:39 m] and again the performance is interrupted this time by George Klein.

Some ask what was the controversy all about?
Well, this performance was pretty run of the mill until Elvis slows the song down [1:39m] and makes a suggestive motion with the microphone stand & then walks with a sort of drunken stance then turns towards the audience & thrusts his body to them. At the time this was deemed too sexually suggestive for a family show.

I've seen this before and it always makes me laugh watching the interactions between Elvis and Milton. I also love that kid at the end. He is so funny trying to imitate Elvis. It was so sad that Elvis died so young.
Thanks Mm

A 21 year old Aunt was 18 at the time of this and she was and still is a big Elvis fan. I most certainly knew of him, but the Beatles were when music and I began to click. Nice watching the show, Milton was a great act too.
