Elvis Presley Movie Star

As a teenager, Elvis worked as an usher in a movie theatre, dreaming of being the hero on screen.

He dreamed of being the movie hero and being in movies, and as with making a genre of music his own, so too, did he have his own Star Vehicle Presley Formula Flick.

It was in that theatre Elvis sat while Dewey Phillips played the one sided singed “That’s All Right Mama” for the first time on air. He got so many calls to re-play that song, that he called the boarding house where the Presleys lived and a neighbour got the phone and got Gladys, who then ran out of the house, with Vernon to get their boy down to the radio station to do his first on air interview, over before he realized it was going on. Elvis Presley had a stutter that got incorporated into his singing.

Elvis Presley’ first being in a movie was a short concert film as an opening act with Pat Boone headlining in the Bill Randle Cleveland Disc Jockey Radio Personality – it was likely broadcast on regional television, screened once at a local high school and the film has disappeared into a private European collector’s hand at the last rumour.

Elvis Presley’s short film:

The Pied Piper of Cleveland: A Day in the Life of a Famous Disc Jockey (Documentary) (performer: “That’s All Right, Mama”, “Mystery Train”, “Good Rockin’ Tonight”)

 

Daily Elvis: October 20

ElvisWorld: Making a Movie Short – Pied Piper of Cleveland Oct 20

 

Then after screen testing, Elvis  was in his first movie in a supporting role. Not in Rainmaker with Katherine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster – Hollywood A Listers – but in a second Reno Brothers movie telling in a minor role made larger by Elvis playing it.

On July 3rd, the Times would report the actual ratings:

N.B.C.-TV’s Steve Allen toppled C.B.S.-TV’s Ed Sullivan in the hotly contested 8 to 9 P. M. time period last Sunday. Mr. Allen, who featured Elvis Presley, singer, scored a Trendex rating of 20.2 as against Mr. Sullivan’s 14.8. The former attracted 55.3 per cent of the viewing audience and the latter drew 39.7 per cent. It was N.B.C.’s best showing since May 30, 1954. During the 1955-1956 season, N.B.C. surpassed Mr. Sullivan only three times.10

The show managed to beat out Sullivan’s in spite of the number of high profile guests that appeared that night which included John Huston, Jose Ferrer, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, Burl Ives and even Gregory Peck reenacting scenes from his upcoming film “Moby Dick.”

The King earned $5,000 for the performance and headed for the studio the next day to record the song for a single release.

Following the Steve Allen show – Elvis returned to the Warwick Hotel where he appeared on the only national talk show interview of his life – Hy Gardner Calling.

Steve Allen would maintain that Elvis was in on the joke being made of him, and Elvis never got over it – even referring to it in 1969 Vegas concert return. That North vs South divide of America.

U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 into law, authorizing $25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles of coast-to-coast Interstate freeways.

Elvis Presley’s taxes probably funded the highways, as much as needing to ship his product to market.

Elvis and his party took a chartered plane to Charlotte, North Carolina, where they caught a Delta flight to New York City.

Elvis arrives for Steve Allen show rehearsals –
in the era of film photography, he was the most photographed person; because in the 1950s,
was the first time, professional equipment became a consumer product

In New York, Elvis was fitted for a tux for the the Steve Allen Show.

Then there was Steve Allen Show rehearsals. Skitch Henderson was NBC-TV’s musical conductor from 1951 to 1966, as well as The Steve Allen Show’s bandleader during its run on Sunday nights in 1956-60.

Elvis played piano – and Alfred Wertheimer had been hired by RCA to photograph Elvis.

After that Elvis took a train to Richmond.

The Charlotte Observer reported the following incident in its June 29, 1956, edition. It seems Elvis was sitting in his “baby blue” limousine after his Thursday night show in Charleston, South Carolina, when a girl reporter for The News and Courier approached his car to take a picture. Apparently, she was after a closeup. She was so close that Elvis was able to stick his head out and bite her hand.

Many girls probably would have enjoyed being bitten by Elvis. This reporter was not one of them. “Hey, you big bruiser, what’s the idea?” she asked him. “You trying to make like Marlon Brando or something.”

“I was only being friendly, like a little puppy dog,” Elvis responded.

The reporter told Elvis it was the first time anyone had ever bitten her as a sign of friendship. “Lady, if you want to get ahead, you gotta be different,” explained Elvis. It was a different era. No lawsuit was filed.

James Brown’s first album, Live at the Apollo, debuted on the pop charts, eventually rising to #2. Despite enormous chart success, he never had a #1 pop album of forty-nine albums hit the pop charts through 1988.  Live would remain his all-time biggest success and would be considered a milestone in the development of live albums for years to come.

Del Shannon‘s cover version of the Beatles’ “From Me To You” became the first song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to appear on the American charts, where it would stay for four weeks, reaching #77. The Beatles’ rendition climbed only to #116. The title of the song was inspired from a letters column called From You To Us that ran in the popular British music newspaper, The New Musical Express.

1985

David Bowie and Mick Jagger recorded a version of the Martha Reeves and the Vandellas 1964 hit ‘Dancing In The Street.’ for the forthcoming Live Aid fundraising event. The single went on to become a No.1 UK hit. The original plan was to perform a track together live, with Bowie performing at Wembley Stadium and Jagger at John F. Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do.

1991

Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, En Vogue, Levert, and Dianne Reeves, among others, performed on the Celebrate the Soul of American Music  TV show.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2016

Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie filed for divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, just months after the couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the previous January.

Then, at Burbank California NBC Color City Studio 4 (6 & 8 PM) Elvis performed in front of invited audiences for two “sit down” concerts – the forerunner of the much later MTV Unplugged format.

On stage were Elvis with his 1960 J200, and entourage members Charlie Hodge with his Gibson L4 and Alan Fortas with a classical guitar prop used in the special and/or a case both of which he basically just kept on his lap. DJ played percussion on an empty guitar case and Scotty Moore was the only one onstage with an electric guitar, his 1963 Super 400.

Elvis infamously took Scotty Moore’s guitar and stood up, pouting over no strap, which Charlie Hodge sang the line “no strap today” and Elvis carried on.

The chief medical officer of Russia said that The Beatles were to blame for the country’s drug problem. Yevgeny Bryun, the nation’s medical chief, said that the country’s youth first got introduced to the idea of drug-taking when The Beatles traveled to India to “expand their minds”. Bryun added that it was after this news entered public consciousness that people in Russia realised you could make money from the sale of drugs. When business then realised it was possible to make money from this, goods associated with pleasure, that was when the growth in the demand for drugs started.”

2017

Col Tom Parker Bio-Pic Announced Spencer Proffer, Steve Binder, and Joe Berlinger are developing a feature film about Elvis Presley’s manger Colonel Tom Parker. Production is slated for early 2018. The screenplay will be based on Alanna Nash’s book, “The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley,” published by Simon & Schuster and one of four Presley books she authored.

Presley Fans Keep Studio From Chopping Sideburns By ALINE MOSBY United Press Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UP) —

Elvis Presley was All Shook Up with gratitude today. Durned if fans didn’t keep MGM Studio from chopping off his famous sideburns and bangs. MGM figured on giving Elvis a crewcut and shaving off those side whiskers because he plays a convict in “Jailhouse Rock”, the third movie on the agenda of the Presley . steamroller through Hollywood. But this caused the biggest crisis in the movie business since Lassie was exposed as a she: Four thousand post cards and letters from Presley fans poured into MGM, begging that the studio let their hero act with his original hair hanging around his sensual- looking face. His Trademark A Fortville, Ind., mother wrote “We love him at our house. Elvis has had more criticism than anyone but his loyal fans stand by.”

The Presleys lived at Audobon Drive, Graceland purchased on March 19.

Elvis Presley’s single “(You’re The) Devil In Disguise” / “Please Don’t Drag That String Around” released.

The Devil in Disguise,peaked at number three in the US on the Billboard singles chart on August 10, 1963 and number nine on the Billboard Rhythm and Blues singles chart, becoming his last top ten single on the Rhythm and Blues charts in the USA.  when the song was debuted to a British audience on the BBC television show Juke Box Jury, the celebrity guest John Lennon voted the song “a miss” stating on the new song that Elvis Presley was “like Bing Crosby now”. The song went on to reach number 1 in the UK for a single week.The song also topped Japan’s Utamatic record chart in the fall of 1963.

Touring Australia The Beatles played at Sydney Stadium in Sydney. This was Paul McCartney 22nd birthday and after the show his guests included 17 girls who were winners of the Daily Mirrors ‘Why I would like to be a guest at a Beatles birthday party’ competition.

 

Presley’s return to the charts: For the First Time in the three years since The Beatles rocketed to fame and fortune, the English hit parade has been topped by that figure out of the past, Elvis Presley. His “Crying in the Chapel” displaced Briton Sandie Shaw’s “long Live Love”, according to a recent weekly report, at the top of the pile.

The best The Beatles could do was take 24th place, with “Ticket to Ride”. The Beatles recent appearance on the queen’s birthday honors list, creating them members of the Order of the British Empire, cannot be expected to do much for their dwindled popularity. One teen-age girl, for example, said of The Beatles favor at the royal hand, “They’ve become respectable, and I don’t want anything to more to do with them.”

All along, of course, we knew that even The Beatles would have their day and be replaced. But we did not expect to see so ancient a figure as Elvis Presley rise to occupy the Beatles’ vacated throne – and in the Beatles home country! Isn’t anything certain any more, even the fickleness of addicts to popular records?
