Description by OLDIES.com:

Share the excitement of Elvis Presley's earth-shattering introduction to the nation in these three unforgettable episodes from "The Ed Sullivan Show," now on DVD for the first time ever, and experience for yourself why Elvis became the legendary King of Rock and Roll!

Appearing on the show September 9, 1956, Elvis sent shock waves through a repressed nation with his soulful singing, wild hip gyrations and raw energy, attracting a record-breaking TV audience of more than 60 million people. Presley returned on October 28, 1956, continuing to provoke ecstatic screams with hits such as "Don't Be Cruel," "Love Me Tender" and "Hound Dog." In fact, these exhilarating performances were so explosive that Elvis was filmed above the waist during his final Sullivan show appearance on January 6, 1957.

Rockin' Special Features: A rare home movie capturing a very early Elvis performance, shot on August 7, 1955, at Magnolia Gardens near Houston, Texas; "Elvis and Ed Remembered" Featurette; Extra "Ed Sullivan Show" clips; & "Special Elvis Moments," including an appearance by comedian John Byner, home movies of Elvis and Priscilla, Elvis and his friends cutting up on a film set, and some of the first shots of daughter Lisa Marie.

Product Description:

The whole nation was witness to the birth of a star when Elvis Presley made his groundbreaking appearances on THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW in the late 1950s. This collection presents all three of the King's starmaking performances: the 9/9/56 episode that marked his debut; the 10/28/56 episode that featured such timeless classics as "Hound Dog," "Love Me Tender," and "Don't Be Cruel;" and the infamous 1/6/57 episode that required the hip-swivelling Elvis to be filmed above the waist.
