The Elvis Experience opens in Brazil

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Elvis Presley Enterprises has opened the largest exhibition ever outside of Graceland.

The Elvis Experience at the Shopping Eldorado Mall in Sao Paulo, Brazil, features more than 600 artifacts, documents and photos, many of which have never before left Memphis.

Among the items featured are Elvis' red MG automobile from the film "Blue Hawaii" and a gold-plated rotary dial telephone from Elvis' upstairs bedroom.

One of the most recognizable items in Brazil is an American Eagle jumpsuit worn by Elvis in the 1973 "Aloha from Hawaii" television special, the world's first live televised satellite concert.

Priscilla Presley was in Sao Paulo this week to open the exhibit. The Elvis Experience runs for 12 weeks.
