Never-Before-Seen Elvis Footage Hits Market

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Elvis Presley fanatics are getting all shook up over some never-before-seen home movies of The King.

A little over two weeks ago, Albert Fisher – the owner of the home movies – began selling DVD copies of footage he shot of Presley back in 1962.

At the time, Fisher was 21 years old and working as the TV and movie coordinator at The Seattle World’s Fair, where it was his job to manage shooting locations.

Elvis was there shooting his film It Happened at the World’s Fair, and Fisher captured the King using his 8 mm home movie camera and still camera.

Fisher says he took shots of a then 10-year-old Kurt Russell kicking Elvis in his kneecap; Presley presenting a smoked ham to the Governor of Washington; and Elvis and a buxom blond peddling around the Space Needle on a three-wheel bike.

The film has been in a safety deposit box since.

Despite the public’s undying interest in all things Elvis, Fisher says, “It never really dawned on me.”

Now the unseen material is generating a buzz as he continues to sell the DVDs at fairvideo.com.
