Daily Elvis: March 7

Give us this day, March 7, our daily Elvis


Tupelo, Mississippi



Humes High School, Memphis, Tennessee


Elvis performed at the City Auditorium, Paris, Tennessee. Elvis, Scotty and Bill were now the headliners on a show made up for the most past of lesser-known artists, like Betty Amos, Onie Wheeler, and Jimmy Work.

William Morris agent Harry Kalcheim telegrams Colonel Parker to inquire if Elvis can audition for Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts, the same show that Bill Randle has recommended so enthusiastically just a short time before. Parker replies blusteringly that he is willing to pay for the trip to New York only if Neal and Elvis agree to give the Colonel the right to represent Elvis on ‘any bookings that may arise [from] the appearance’.

On March 7, 1956, William Morris agent Harry Kalcheim forwarded the script of The Rainmaker,for Elvis’ screen test.

“When I complete a movie or a record session, I head for Graceland as fast as I can. I withdraw not from my fans, but from myself. After work, I just give out. I like to come back here to think and relax. I guess in that respect I have withdrawn, but here it’s quiet and I can reevaluate myself and see where I’m going.” — The Commercial-Appeal Mid-South Magazine, March 7, 1965

Elvis had misgivings about allowing pictures to be made inside his home. “It’s not that I don’t want pictures,” he said. ‘You know what I mean. Some people might think I am looking for publicity or trying to exploit my home. I certainly don’t want anyone to think that’. (All photos by Charles Nicholas /The Commercial Appeal)
