In 1957 Timex sponsored a series of TV Variety Show Specials starring Frank Sinatra. The last in the series was taped on the 12th of May 1960 in Miami. This show was perhaps the best of all, featuring Elvis Presley, who had just completed his National Service. This video, remastered from the archive tape of the broadcast programme, is the original show in its entirety including the sponsors promotional segments. Whilst the quality of reproduction does not meet modern technological standards, it is a rare record of two of the most popular performers of the Twentieth Century performing together.
Dance segments plus eleven songs including "Witchcraft" (Sinatra), "Stuck on You" (Presley), and "Come On Bess" (Davis).
Broadcast in 1960, this show marked the end of a series of shows on ABC hosted by Frank Sinatra. The climax was spectacular, with the king of rock 'n' roll, Mr. Elvis Aaron Presley, making a stunning performance. Although the quality of this recording is not picture-perfect, this is nevertheless a fascinating look at the moment two music legends met.
