On the last day of a five-day break from their North American tour, The Beatles attended a recording session for The Byrds.

Elvis was visited by the Beatles from 10.00 p.m. at his Perugia Way home until the early hours of the next day.

The Beatles arrived, they stared at Elvis, then, they all jammed on Chuck Berry.

Col Parker and Brian Epstein also had a meeting around the pool table.

Despite the best planning of Parker, a fan at the gate got photos.

Upon leaving the house, John Lennon told Jerry Schilling to make sure Elvis knew that “if it hadn’t been for him, the Beatles would be nothing.”

The next night, some of the Memphis Mafia when to hang out with The Beatles.

Double Trouble

August 27, 1967

The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at his home in Belgravia, London, just a few weeks shy of his 33rd birthday. The Fab Four were in Bangor, North Wales at the time, attending a conference by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The death is ruled accidental and the Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death, being in the realm of the physical world, is “not important.” The group would later renounce their association with the Maharishi and Epstein is remembered as being the man who took The Beatles from being a rough looking club act to the most successful band in the world.

A coroner’s inquest concluded that Epstein died from an overdose of the sleeping pill Carbitrol. He also managed several other artists including Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. The first contract between The Beatles and Epstein was auctioned in London in 2008, and was sold for £240,000.

Elvis continued to spend time at the ranch but instead of horseback riding he had found a new hobby: target shooting.

Director Says Elvis Presley Will Get 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.”

Military service at Fort Hood, TX, for basic training as part of the Second Armored Division. He was stationed there for six months.
