Elvis documentary on HBO

It is very interesting even though I was never a huge fan of his. But I noticed at 1:03 when he is in an RCA recording studio recording "Heartbreak Hotel" and to his left is a guitarist who looks like Chet to me. It's a profile shot so I can't really be sure. Hope you guys can see it.

I paused the screen and got a pretty good image of who I believe was Chet in those mid 50's days. I do not know how to get it from my iPhone to here.

There are several still photos from that recording session on the internet. As I understand it, Chet was playing rhythm on Elvis' guitar during this session.
