ELVIS: Grace and Grit
Before the days of Elvis wannabes and before the plethora of Elvis look alikes, there was Elvis.
Curated from the CBS Photo Archives, the exhibit examines the young and feisty, talented and sexy, Elvis Presley who revolutionized pop music in the early sixties.  His trailblazing renditions of blacks-only blues with rock shot him to the top of the charts and into the libidos of America's teenage girls. 

Elvis' signature hip roll, considered too risque for prime time TV, prompted the famous order (to CBS cameramen of the Ed Sullivan Show) to photograph the King from the waist up.  The exhibition Elvis: Grace and Grit looks at the early years of superstardom through his many CBS appearances. 

Thirty-five behind the scenes candids and on air photographs document Elvis before the Las Vegas
years -- during the meteoric rise of this star.

ELVIS: Grace and Grit was curated in collaboration
with John Filo, director of photo operations at CBS. 
Filo is a former photo editor for Newsweek and deputy
picture editor of Sports Illustrated.  He won the 1971
Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography.  His photo
of the student killed at Kent State University by the
Ohio National Guard was one of the most compelling
images of the Vietnam era.  Filo currently assigns,
edits and distributes photo coverage of CBS's current
programming and is responsible for the marketing
of the 30-million image CBS Photo Archive.

Elvis Presley, with The Colonel and Ed Sullivan during his second appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, October 28, 1956 at CBS Studio 50. Colonel Tom Parker, who became his manager on March 15, 1956, managed Elvis for 22 years and then continued to “manage” him in death, was accused in 1981 of having mismanaged Elvis during the last few years of his life.  The Colonel’s fee for managing Elvis was 25 percent, but in 1967, Parker’s share became an unheard-of 50 percent when he signed a new contract with Elvis. The “Colonel” in Parker’s name does not refer to military rank. It comes from the peculiar Southern custom of bestowing that title on a gentleman as an honor from a particular state, which in Parker’s case was Louisiana and Tennessee..
