Today in 1960, Frank Sinatra’s Timex Spectacular special, cannily renamed Welcome Home, Elvis in honor of its guest star’s release from the Army, is broadcast on ABC-TV and pulls in 41 percent of America’s households. In it, Sinatra and Presley do the medley of each other’s songs shown here, with Frank taking on “Love Me Tender” and Elvis singing “Witchcraft.” Here’s the complete show, which also featured Sammy Davis Jr. Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and Nancy Sinatra. . .
