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”)

The Presleys lived at  Audobon Drive until March 1957, moving into Graceland

Mick Jagger was in the audience to see Buddy Holly and the Crickets perform at the Granada Theatre in Woolwich, England.
On this day in 1958, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the first gold record. It was Perry Como’s Catch a Falling Star on RCA Victor Records. The tune became the first to win million-seller certification, though other songs dating as far back as the 1920s may have sold a million records or more. Due to lack of a certification organization like the RIAA, they weren’t awarded the golden platter.  It was really Elvis’ back to back million sellers and chart toppers that created the RIAA. One of the next three gold records that were certified after Perry Como’s million seller was “Hard Headed Woman” by Elvis Presley.
Elvis and his entourage got off the train in Dallas and rented Cadillacs for the drive to Memphis. Back at Graceland a reporter asked Elvis how his parents felt about his going into the army. Elvis admitted that his mother was very upset about that, like all mothers. On the question of whether his popularity would fade during his absence Elvis responded: ” That’s the sixty-four-dollar question. I wish I knew.”

Elvis Presley is playing host to the Holiday on Ice company today at his home. Buses were to leave the Hotel Claridge at 2:30, carrying the entire company to Graceland to spend the afternoon.

The singer visited the show again last night at Ellis Auditorium and spent most of the time backstage. He climbed up to the elevated bandstand where Conductor Ben Stabler let him wield his lighted baton for a moment over the 17-piece band. Later he hugged the matronly wardrobe women and told them they had all don ‘a great job’. Elvis was kept busy signing autographs and posing for pictures for members of the company.

He wore a white open-neck shirt and dark suit.

At the performance for negroes last night, which drew a capacity house, St. Jude Hospital received a check for $500 thru the Zeta Phi Beta sorority, a negro organization.

Sarah Lewis, top student at LeMoyne College and ‘Holiday Princess of the Ice for 1960’ accepted the check from Mrs. Maggie Jordan, sponsor of the sorority campus chapter, who turned it over to Fred Gattas, representing the hospital. Remaining performances of the ice show will be tonight and tomorrow at 8:30.

Deaf Children Meet Elvis

Elvis Presley fans know no boundaries – recognize no handicaps. Saturday night Elvis made the world of four youngsters a brighter place when he left a houseful of guests to come and greet four youngsters, who are students at the Arkansas School for the Deaf.

Flecher Davis, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. John K. Davis of West Memphis; Shirley Varner, 13, foster daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Lopez of Memphis; Philis Roberson, 15, of Stuttgart, Ark., and Betty Penington, also 15, of Benton, Ark., drove out to Graceland to have a look at the home of Elvis.

‘The children had no idea of seeing Elvis’, said Mrs. Davis’, in fact, we warned them that they couldn’t. We drove the children out about 9 p.m.. And then we saw one of Elvis’ cousins, Wayne Presley, whom we met in West Memphis last summer. He recognized us and said he would go inside and explain the situation to Elvis’.

‘When Elvis’ uncle, Travis Smith, called us out of a line of some 30 cars and motioned us inside the gate you could have heard our children squealing and the other disappointed fans moaning a mile away.

‘Elvis is a warm hearted and thoughtful young man. He came bounding out of the front door of his home looking handsome in a dark suit and a white shirt. He kissed the girls on the cheeks and they stood like rag dolls vowing to never wash their faces again. He shook hands and thanked us for bringing the children to see him’.

Mrs. Davis says the children are deaf but not mute, and that some even have partial hearing. Contrary to popular notion, deaf children love music. They feel the vibrations and even dance in their stocking feet to feel the vibration of the music more keenly. Last year the Davis family donated a juke box and several albums.
