Elvis was paid an unprecedented amount to perform a few songs on this now historic show.

The Frank Sinatra Show was Elvis' very first post army appearance on television. Viewer ratings for The Frank Sinatra show were boosted to record levels with Elvis' guest appearance. In order to get Elvis on the show, Sinatra and the show sponsors had to meet Presley's manager's demand of $50,000, an unprecedented sum at the time. They agreed, though it's been reported that Sinatra wasn't too enamored with Elvis until this show!

This DVD is the entire episode, complete with live product advertising as well as other sketches and songs by Sinatra and various guests. Other than seeing and hearing a fairly nervous Elvis casting his spell on both the live and television audience, this presentation is worth acquiring just to see how television shows looked like in 1960. Sound and black & white film quality is only adequate.

In summary, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra fans will love this historic television show, but do not expect HD film quality or stereo sound.

I ordered this DVD as I know as an Elvis fan its never ever been released officialy by EPE/GRACELAND and has always looked bad on bootleg DVD's!-I was told that this DVD is the best unofficial DVD released so I bought it and paid a high price tag for an item which wasn't REMASTERED on DVD at all,it looks washed out and old!!-the only good thing about this DVD is the fact its the complete show but in very bad quality and has some very interesting 'bonus features' which was well worth watching(even this wasn't very good quality)I cannot recommend this DVD to any serious Elvis Presley fan as the picture quality is so BAD.(I'm well upset I paid nearly £16 for this DVD.)Maybe one day EPE/GRACELAND will release a decent DVD of this show remastered like they did with the Ed Sullivan Shows..only time will tell.(please do not waste your money ordering this DVD)Be Warned!!!

Picture quality not very good, but it's a historical moment in Elvis's career, his first appearance since his de-mob from the army. Maybe one day this dvd will get restored and then we can fully enjoy the experience!

Purchased for a Christmas gift for my elderly Father who is a fan of Frank Sinatra. He enjoyed the show.

Poor quality picture for the price paid although I liked the extra bonus features & the fact it was the whole show it is watchable. Not sure whether I would recommend at it's current price. Hopefully Graceland/EPE will bring out a copy that has been remastered.

The quality of the DVD disk is very poor, and is not worth buying,and the content is not much better.
