April 3, 1956 is the date of Elvis' debut appearance on the Milton Berle Show. The show was broadcast live from the deck of the USS Hancock on NBC while docked at the Naval Air Base in San Diego, California. As part of the show, Elvis also performed a comedy sketch with Milton Berle who acted as Elvis' twin brother Melvin. OK, so most likely you know this. But what you probably did not know was Elvis, as this recently discovered original script for that TV show indicates, Milton Berle actually wanted to name Elvis' twin brother 'Pelvis Presley'. Elvis refused and the name was appropriately changed to 'Melvin', leaving the rest of the comedy sketch untouched.

Hot on the heels of their Blu-ray release of Follow That Dream
, Twilight Time is back with another Elvis Presley vehicle, 1960's Flaming Star
. This spiffy new Blu-ray, which boasts an excellent transfer, is strictly limited to 3,000 copies. Director Don Siegel tackled this Western several years after gritty '50s classics like 'Riot in Cell Block 11' (1954) and 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' (1956), but this was more than a decade before his iconic 'Dirty Harry'. Make no mistake, this is no Elvis Presley musical lark; The King meant business with this one. He knocks out a novelty tune early on, presumably to satisfy those who simply couldn't bear the thought of a Presley movie without tunes, but otherwise he is here to act. Technical merits of this release are generally very good, and Flaming Star comes Recommended.

I just had the chance to finish up watching the new DVD release, Elvis : He Didn't Come Back ... We Did. I just love seeing 'That's The Way It Is' material in this kind of quality without the big, annoying 'Property of Turner' text on the screen. The small type on the 'On Tour' material is the way to go and so much less obtrusive. 'Elvis : He Didn't Come Back ... We Did' DVD contains nearly 100 minutes of further outtakes from 'That's The Way It Is' & 'Elvis on Tour' and contains unreleased material from both [as well as some we have had before but with different camera angles] and also for first time in original widescreen.
