Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977), also known mononymously as Elvis, was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "The King".
In March 1965 RCA commissioned Alfred Wertheimer, than a 27-year-old freelance photographer, to shoot Presley's appearance on the Dorsey Brothers' network TV show. Three months later RCA again gave Wertheimer the job of recording on film Elvis's appearance on the "Steve Allen Show". On his own initiative, Wertheimer travelled to Richmond the night before the Allen show to get some shots during Elvis's concert there. On July 2, the day after the Allen program, Wertheimer set up his gear at the legendary RCA recording session that produced "Hound Dog" and "Don't be Cruel". After Wertheimer spent July 4 in Memphis photographing Elvis at home and in concert that night at Russwood Park, his extraordianry access to Elvis in 1956 came to an end.
