A snow storm almost prevented Elvis from driving to New York from Charlotte, NC.

With almost no time to spare, Elvis arrived at Studio 50 for his third appearance on the ‘Stage Show’. He sang ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ and finally plugged his latest release, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’.

The Dorsey band backed him on the last song and Charley Shavers took the instrumental break on trumpet. Other guests on the show were Ella Fitzgerald and Jackie Miles.

Elvis performed at the Stage Show, CBS Studios, , New York City at 8.00 p.m.
For his third appearance CBS finally gave in to the pressure of Steve Shole and allowed Elvis to perform Heartbreak Hotel and Blue Suede Shoes.

 

Loving You ;Elvis filmed the “tavern” scene from Loving You, in which envious local thugs picked a fight with singer Deke Rivers, who, like his real-life counterpart, definitely appealed to their girlfriends.

 

King Creole: Elvis recorded soundtrack material on Paramount’s soundstage from 1.00 to 9.55 p.m. He re-recorded Steadfast, Loyal And True and he worked on the song Danny, which was still an option to be used as title song, in case the film’s name would remain A Stone For Danny Fisher.

 

Military Service: An employee of a German film company came to the house to try to persuade Elvis to sing just one song in an upcoming production. Elvis explained that he was hesitant to do anything that might lead to resentment on the part of his fellow soldiers. In passing, he expressed almost equal concern about fan resentment when he was unable to sign autographs.

 

Elvis received his full sergeant’s stripes and he threw a party to celebrate.
