Both Elvis and his class mates dated this as the beginning of his rise of fame.

Director Says Elvis Presley Will Gel Respect He Wants

By HASMSL k. tinned Press Staff Corfespondent HOLLWYOOD (Up) — Director Mike Curtiz admits that he let out a loud hoot of laughter the first lime he was asked to direct Elvis Presley in a motion picture; ‘He needs someone who can really discover him,” Curtis was told by producer Hai Wallis who was then in the initial phase of planning Presley’s final pre-Army movie, “King Creole.” Elvis needs to be discovered as much as. Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield ‘do,” Curtiz said in an attempt to end the  conversation. Bui he finally did agree to see the sideburns king’s dramatic test. “After the first few lines Elvis spoke,” Curtiz said, “1 began to sit up and take notice.” “Instead of a gyrating rock-and- roller, I was watching a natural, un-actory actor, underplaying his role because he knew none of the tricks of the trade.”

Discovered Many Stars Curtiz, credited with the ‘discovery’ of such persons as Doris Day, Errol Flynn, John Garfteld, was convinced. And that was the beginning of what Curtis said was an attempt to 1 give Elvis what he most wants —respect. ‘Elvis knows the trend of his own publicity,” Wallis told Curtis, ‘and he’s painfully aware of the fact that not everyone is in his corner. He realizes that he is 1 ridiculed, made the butt of jokes and that the older movie goers run in the other direction when they see his name on a theater marquee.”

Curtis said Presley was the first one on the set at 6:30 the morning, his lines learned, and he always stayed within earshot of the camera so he would not have to be called twice. ‘When I told him that he would sing three ballads without one single movement, 1 didn’t get the answer you’d expect. “instead, he merely nodded and said simply, ‘You’re the boss, Mr. Curtiz. ” the director described Presley the actor as an “amazingly rest.”
