To celebrate the 60th ANNIVERSARY YEAR of Elvis’ first appearance on national television, Boxcar
Enterprises will release a LIMITED EDITION 400-page hard cover book (with slipcase), a comprehensive
illustration of Elvis Presley’s early television appearances titled ‘Elvis on Television (1956-1960).
From his first national introduction on the Dorsey Brothers ‘Stage Show’ in January 1956, through his
appearances on other TV shows hosted by famous celebrities such as Milton Berle, Steve Allen and Ed
Sullivan (including the infamous ‘from the waist up’ show in January 1957), this book goes well behind the
scenes of each show documenting his arrival, the rehearsals and the shows themselves, all the way
through to Elvis’ post-army appearance on The Frank Sinatra-Timex Show in May 1960. It was to be his
last television appearance for eight years.
Supported by a fully comprehensive text, (by Gordon Minto) collected here are scores of historical
documents, memorabilia and hundreds of rare photographs - many of which have never before been
published. This book will captivate the reader throughout, and is the most detailed document on the
history of Elvis on Television from 1956-60.
The Book is expected to be released June 20th 2016
