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

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.

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.

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?

“The Negro disk jockey, once considered a rarity on the nation’s airwaves, has become almost commonplace in this day and age,” Ellis Waters stated today in the New Negro men’s magazine, Duke. The writer continued: “There are now more than 500 Negro platter spinners on the air across the nation.” He described disc jockeying as the “newest Negro industry,” a $250 million annual business.

RCA didn’t want Rocker Elvis to record gospel music – and who would buy songs they already knew and most likely sang? Ed Sullivan had a rare secular high culture and pop culture variety show and Elvis Presley sang the only gospel song of that Show of Show’s run. Elvis Presley should be credited for creating a Christian Music industry and as a result, Christian rock – the least and weakest of the genre formats.

Elvis Presley sang the blues as country and country as blues, with the upbeat message of getting paid and laid, delivered with a gospel fervor. This was his sacred songbook, that balanced his more profane performances. Other rockers lurched between religion and rock, Elvis, just combined them all.

Elvis Presley’s “Peace In The Valley” hit #39 in the U.S, reaching reached number three on the short-lived Billboard EP chart, and number three on the album chart, and number 39 on the singles chart.

2017

“Miss Elvis Presley” the most obscure and rarest Books – set of 21.

“Miss Elvis Presley” – the world’s rarest Elvis book was (and still is) unique and controversial: The Elvis book world features several thousand titles. As to the rarest Elvis books published, normally titles such as Elvis Presley Ein Lebensbild (A Life Story) by Peter DeVeechi, The Name Code: The God of Elvis (Christopher Byrnes Matthews), Elvis Presley Dead or Alive? (Will Jima), Elvis The T.V. Years (I.R. Bailye) and Elvis UFO Connection (Richard Daniel) are usually mentioned.

However, there is one title that few fans will have ever heard of, a one of a kind publication which lays claim to being the rarest Elvis book of all and was released as part of a set of 21 hand illustrated 1950s vernacular gay chap books!! It is: Miss Elvis Presley.

Due to its (especially in the 1950s) scandalous subject matter the 21 book set received very little, if any, media coverage and more likely was only known about in underground gay circles.

The little known set of 21 books was listed on ebay last year with an asking price of US$45,000.! Not surprisingly it did not sell. The set is still available to buy directly from: Between the Covers Rare Books, Inc ABAA

This is the text accompanying the set’s sales listing:

1958. Softcover. Oblong 24mos. Measuring 5″ x 8″. Illustrated throughout with original ink and watercolor drawings. Each 8pp. Stiff paper wrappers with index cards used for pages and bound with staples or brads. Overall near fine with some wear at the corners and light reading creases to the front wrap along the spine. An elaborate and vibrant collection of 21 gay cartoon books that appear to have been illustrated by one person. Each features very graphic and explicit tales of boy meets boy – and sometimes another boy (and in a few cases a werewolf, or Elvis Presley, or Dick Tracy and well, you get the idea). Each is lovingly composed of seven or eight index cards that have been illustrated on the unlined side and bound into hand decorated stiff wraps, some with applied elements. Though undated, the fashions, furniture, and cultural references suggest the late 1950s with titles such as *Miss Elvis Presley*, *I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf*, and *Space Girl* starring Flash Gordon. A unique collection of handcrafted drawings revealing the unvarnished exploits (or at least the fantasies) of a sexually active gay man of the 1950s with more than a dose of figurative and literal tongue-in-cheek humor and pun filled titles, such as *Ima Hoor Presents: Lover, a Sexascope Production*. The optimistic portrayal of certain physical attributes of the characters certainly parallel or reflect the similarly endowed characters of Tom of Finland, or might possibly even predate them slightly. Due to the singular and clandestine nature of the books, this collection would be almost impossible to recreate today. Originally held for many years by an art dealer who never encountered anything like it, the collection has been in the possession of only one other private owner since. Housed in a specially made slipcase.

The obscure release was consistent with an undercurrent in the Elvis story that he was gay or bi-sexual. Stories about his wearing of mascara and friendship Hollywood with known gay actor, Nick Adams, appeared in several 1950s magazines. (Book News, Source: EIN)

Queen‘s single “We Are the Champions” was certified Platinum after reaching number two on the UK Singles Chart and number four on the Billboard Hot 100.

Gordon Lightfoot’s album “Endless Wire” was certified Gold.

1981

Paul McCartney, who is reluctant to tour because of death threats he was receiving in the wake of John Lennon’s murder, decides to disband Wings.

1982

Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Ebony And Ivory.’ This was McCartney’s 24th No.1 hit single as a songwriter. The title was inspired by McCartney hearing Spike Milligan say “black notes, white notes, and you need to play the two to make harmony folks!”. It was later named as the tenth worst song of all time by Blender magazine and in 2007 was named the worst duet in history by BBC 6 Music listeners.

1983 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

 

1984 Actor ExWife: Priscilla Presley

1987

Madonna went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘La Isla Bonita.’ The fifth and final single from her third studio album, True Blue, made her the only female artist to score four UK No.1 singles. The song had been offered to Michael Jackson for his Bad album.

U2 started a five-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with their fifth studio album The Joshua Tree. Inspired by American tour experiences, literature, and politics, the album topped the charts in over 20 countries, and is one of the world’s all-time best-selling albums, with over 25 million copies sold. The album which won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year produced the hit singles ‘With or Without You’, ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’, and ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’.

1994

A judge found Michael Bolton’s 1991 hit “Love Is A Wonderful Thing” to be a plagiarized version of the Isley Brothers’ 1966 song of the same name, even though Bolton protested that he’d never heard the Isley Brothers’ song.

1997

U2’s ‘Pop Mart’ world tour kicked off at The Las Vegas San Boyd Stadium in front of 35,000 fans. The tour featured the largest video screen in the world and would visit 80 cities around the planet.

2003

In this year’s Sunday Times Rich List, Paul McCartney was confirmed as the world’s richest musician with a fortune worth over £760m. Madonna was 4th in the list with £227m, Mick Jagger 6th with £175m and Elton John 7th with £170m. Ozzy Osbourne became the 24th richest musician after earning an estimated £42m from his MTV show The Osbournes. And Simon Fuller was said to have earned over £50m from sales of the ‘Pop Idol’ TV show.

Singer/songwriter/pianist/civil rights activist Nina Simone was laid to rest in Carry-Le-Rouet, France. She had lived in France since 1992, and died there on April 21.

2005

Bruce Springsteen played the first show of his Devils & Dust Tour at Detroit’s Fox Theatre.

2011 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2015

Eagles’ drummer Don Henley lashed out on his Facebook page against fans using cell phones to capture images and video at the band’s concerts. “The madness, the rudeness, the thoughtlessness must stop. Constantly looking at the world through a viewfinder is not seeing. Listening to live music while recording on a smartphone is not hearing. Experiencing life second-hand is not living. Be here now.” At Eagles’ shows on their most recent tour, ushers were instructed to reprimand those who ignored the ban and remove repeat offenders.

The San Diego, April 24th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased and moreover, it is completely a new show for Elvis fans – never before in circulation, in any form!
Elvis April ’76 tour was rated as very good one, with longer shows and variable set list.

Elvis’ drummer Ronnie Tutt was back in band and pianist Shane Kiester was replaced by Tony Brown.
Among the concert highlights there are ‘Tryin’ To Get To You’, ‘America’, ‘Hurt’, ‘Burning Love’ and ‘How Great Thou Art’.  One song stands out: rare, heartfelt performance of complete version of ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’. This song was performed only 3 known times, in 1976.
This concert is taken from a recently found first generation audience recorded cassette tape. The nicely designed digipak has a great collection of quality images taken in San Diego, CA, April 24, 1976.

Elvis Presley (with Scotty Moore and Bill Black),  made his Las Vegas debut, opening for the Freddie Martin Orchestra and comedian Shecky Greene at the New Frontier Hotel.
Although he had become a teen sensation by this time, Elvis was not the typical Vegas Strip entertainer of the period and the audience reception was cool-to-indifferent. The contract was torn up after one week of what was supposed to be a two-week engagement. The experience was not a total loss, however. While there, Presley witnessed Freddie Bell and the Bellboys doing a raucous version of Big Mama Thornton’s blues hit “Hound Dog,” and he soon worked that song into his live act.  Presley wouldn’t play Las Vegas again for almost 13 years.

John Lennon would later say “It’s just Tony Sheridan singing with us banging in the background. They’re flogging it, but I wish they’d just shut up! It’s terrible! It could be anybody.” The mono 45 failed to chart on Billboard or Cashbox.
