Frank - Las Vegas style
Frank re-emerges, in his Las Vegas Tux, with a compelling invitation to "Come Fly With Me". And now it's time for the re-creation of a highly watched TV event, when Elvis was Frank's special guest on May 12th, 1960. Their playful duet of Love Me Tender and Witchcraft has each one singing the other one's song, and the result is a delight. Frank remains for Sixties and Seventies hits like Fly Me To The Moon, Summer Wind, and The Way You Look Tonight, closing with New York, New York, of course.
Viva Las Vegas - The Elvis Impersonator returns

The Finale with Frank & Elvis together
A dramatic highlight remains, and it sums up these two impressive careers. It's a grand finale duet of their mutual hit, "My Way". . .done Their Way. . .and capping off the show in an unbelievable way.
Starting in 1957, Frank did a series of TV Variety Specials for Timex on the ABC Network. The last in the series, produced on May 12th, 1960, had among its guests, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Nancy Sinatra, and featured special guest Elvis Presley, who had just completed his Military Service. This highly watched TV event was recorded at the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami, and Elvis was paid a fee of $125,000, which was a staggering amount at that time. A highlight of the show was the duet of Love Me Tender and Witchcraft, in which each star sang the other one's song.
