In these photographs Elvis looks like he's wearing the same jacket that he wore during the filming of the "Gospel" medley

on his NBC TV Special back in June. Speaking of the TV Special, Variety announced that the "bordello" sequence had been

cut. The NBC censors passed it, but the show's Sponsor, Singer, requested that it be removed.
