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”)

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.

During filming of what became the documentary “Don’t Look Back,” Bob Dylan got the idea for one of the first music videos: a short film of his single “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” featuring him standing in an alley next to London’s Savoy Hotel flipping giant cue cards with the lyrics of the song on them.

Elvis 22nd album was a soundtrack disc:”Girl Happy” hit #7 in the U.K. In the US, it peaked at number eight on the Top LP’s chart. It was certified Gold on July 15, 1999 by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Co-starring in the movie was TV actress/singer Shelly Fabres – a duet and a song by her in the movie and on the soundtrack might have increased sales to her fan base. A missed opportunity, even when there were movie duets, the soundtrack would be Elvis alone.

This disc was the 6th in a row that was a soundtrack LP, with only the Elvis Golden Records 3 collection of singles.

Bill Haley & His Comets and released on Decca Records: “Yeah, She’s Evil!”Haley actually recorded his version six days after  just before Elvis’ recording of the same song under the  different name of  “Meanest Girl in town” – and released his single before Elvis’s soundtrack. Burring that original vs cover line rather a lot.

The soundtrack single, a dance tune “Do the Clam” was released approximately a month ahead of the album as a single, peaking at number 21 and is perhaps Elvis’ dirtiest ditty.

TV Series: Good Rocking Tonight

In the 1960s, Rick Huskey’s frat gave Elvis an award and made him a member as a means to meet him.

Rick Husky pins a TKE pledge pin on his newest fraternity brother Elvis Presley at Graceland.

Image result for Elvis and Rick Huskey

Huskey wrote the “Elvis Episode” for The Streets of San Francisco with the episode characters – the villians – named for various of Elvis’ Memphis Mafia in 1974.

 

After the 1980s, the public stopped being mad at Elvis and an attempt at a TV series was made – and Rick Huskey was the Showrunner Producer.

Priscilla Presley was involved and selected Micheal St Gerard, who to 2017, has played Elvis more than another other actor – Michael St. Gerard had played Presley twice before, in the 1989 films Great Balls of Fire! and Heart of Dixie; and once again after this series, in a 1993 episode of Quantum Leap. Additionally his character in John Water’s Hairspray is an Elvis archetype. St. Gerard quit acting in favour of a religious career.

St Gerard plays the Drafted Elvis telling Jerry Lee to just be King in a fantasy sequence.

Hairspray – about the integration of a regional dance show, St Gerard plays the Show’s Hunky Elvis clone.

HAIRSPRAY, Michael St. Gerard, Ricki Lake, Leslie Ann Powers, Clayton Prince, 1988, (c) New Line

 

Millie Perkins, who played Elvis’ love interest in Wild in the Country and won an Oscar for playing Anne Frank, hit the career plateau for women of Gladys Presley.

 

The Series filmed 13 episodes and only 11were broadcast. The Show popularity peaked during production and it is the only time a Presidential Motorcade route was changed to not interfere with filming. Oddly, poor ratings ended the show.

Each episode would have a childhood moment that became relevant to this week’s advancing from loading the electricians trucks and delivery work to dock loading to getting to become a guitar player worth a damn.

Then, let us see the pivotal moments of Elvis becoming the King – recreating the rock n roll spark of That’s All Right Mama, to the doomed romance of the girl who knew him before all the girls on the road.

The Caddie that Caught Fire, Bill and Scotty on the road

Hard to watch the American dream, knowing the nightmare it ended as.

Elvis the fictionalized version, veered into fiction – and the too santitized production and the lack of Elvis’ actual voice – combined with lead actor Micheal St. Gerard’s brown eyes; made it not work on tv for fans and the lack of sales of the first episode on VHS – made it seem like Elvis had peaked and that long tail marketing would be his last gasp.

Officially, the first 4 episodes were released on VHS, just as DVDs replaced that format.

but, this was the 1990s and most fans had VCRs and eventually, that format was digitized.

‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra became the first recording to be awarded a Gold record.

The first Gold single was awarded to Perry Como in 1958 for ‘Catch A Falling Star’ and the first Gold album was given to Gordon McRae for the soundtrack to ‘Oklahoma’.

The Beatles recorded the orchestral build-up for the middle and end of ‘A Day in the Life’. At the Beatles’ and and producer George Martin’ request, the orchestra members arrived in full evening dress along with novelty items. One violinist wore a red clown’s nose, while another, a fake gorilla’s paw on his bow hand. Others were wearing funny hats and other assorted novelties.  Martin later recalled that when he told some of Britain’s finest musicians that they were to play twenty-four bars of cacophonous, improvised crescendo, “they all looked at me as though I were completely mad.” The recording was filmed for a possible ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ television special which was ultimately abandoned. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mike Nesmith from The Monkees and Donovan also attended the session.

Vernon was released from Parchman Penitentiary serving eight months of a three year sentence for altering a check from 4 dollars to 40 dollars.
Gladys had gone door to door with toddler Elvis to get support and it worked, this leniency was the result of a ‘petition of the citizens of Lee County and on a letter from Mr. O. S. Bean, the party on whom the checks were forged’. The document is signed by Governor Hugh White.
Mr Bean had been their landlord, and his daughter was a Tupelo Schoolteacher who encouraged Elvis to sing at the State Fair.

Parchman Prison was a particularly grim one of the era, and would feature in Elvis’ life more than Vernon’s absence from the family.

The article explained that in a single year Elvis completely eclipsed Caruso’s record sales. In 1956 Elvis had five recordings reach million-seller status. They were “Don’t Be Cruel”/“Hound Dog” (3,200,000), “Love Me Tender” (2,300,000), “Heartbreak Hotel” (1,600,000), and “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You” (1,200,000). “These and other records pushed his sales to 11 million singles in his first year in the big time, plus two albums,” the Commercial-Appeal reported. It also noted, however, that Elvis was still a long way away from topping the all-time top-selling single. That was Tommy Dorsey’s “Boogie Woogie,” which sold 4,500,000 copies back in 1938.

27-year-old Jesse Belvin, who scored a 1956 hit with ‘Goodnight, My Love’, was killed in a car accident in Hope, Arkansas. His wife and the car’s driver also died of their injuries. The three were trying to make a fast get-a-way from the first ever mixed race audience concert in the town of Little Rock, after threats had been made against Belvin’s life, foul play could well have been a part.

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

February 6, 1961

Chubby Checker & the Dreamlovers charted R&B on their way to #1 and their second million-seller with “Pony Time.” The song was a revision of Clarence “Pinetop” Smith’s “Boogie Woogie” in 1928, and Checker’s version beat out a competing recording by Don Covay & the Goodtimers that reached only #60 pop.

Elvis couldn’t attend cousin Junior Smith’s funeral because he had been called back to Hollywood to re-shoot the ending of Wild In The Country. Preview audiences had reacted badly to the suicide of Hope Lange’s character.

The Righteous Brothers started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with the Phil Spector produced ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’. The song was also No.1 in the UK. According to the RIAA, the song has now been played on US radio stations over 8 million times, more than any other record in history.

The Rolling Stones second album ‘Rolling Stones No.2’ started a three-week run at No.1 on the UK charts. The album followed its predecessor’s tendency to largely feature R&B covers. However, it did contain three compositions from the still-developing Mick Jagger – Keith Richards songwriting team.

February 6, 1966

Elvis bought a white buckskin horse and a quarter horse named Conchita’s Gold, as well as a Case tractor and 2 El Camino pickup trucks.
Elvis’ friend, actor Nick Adams, died of an apparent drug overdose. However, there were no drug paraphernalia and the typewriter given to Adams by James Dean was missing. Adam’s daughter would later publish Nick’s manuscript about his friendship with Elvis, Nathalie Wood and the Tupelo Homecoming, written on that typewriter.

Dusty Springfield returns to the US Top 10 for the first time in nineteen years with a duet with Pet Shop Boys called “What’ve I Done To Deserve This”. Her last big hit in America was “Son Of A Preacher Man” in December, 1968.

Billy Idol broke several bones in a serious motorcycle accident. As a result he could not appear in Oliver Stone’s “The Doors” in a major role.

More than 200 women filed court actions against Chuck Berry, alleging he secretly filmed them in the washrooms of the restaurant he owned. Berry claimed that he had the camera installed to catch an employee who was suspected of stealing. Although the charges were never proven in court, Berry agreed to a settlement with 59 of the women that cost him more than $1.2 million, plus legal fees.

A Los Angeles judge issued a restraining order against Britney Spears’manager, after her mother made the request to the court. Lynne Spears claimed Sam Lutfi, 33, had drugged the troubled pop star and interfered with her finances. In a six-page declaration, Lynne Spears said Mr Lutfi “moved into Britney’s home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances”. Her declaration focused on the night of 28 January, a few days before the Grammy-winning superstar was admitted to hospital for a mental evaluation.

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2010

Michael Jackson‘s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was charged with involuntary manslaughter in an attempt by L.A. prosecutors to prove he caused the Pop star’s death. With several members of the Jackson family in attendance, Dr. Murray entered a plea of not guilty and was released on $75,000 bail. In November 2011, a jury found Murray guilty and he was sentenced to four years in prison. He was released in October 2013 and continued to appeal his conviction.

Barbra Streisand turned down a $100 million offer to appear at a Las Vegas hotel for a three year run. Instead, the 67 year old singer opted for a summer tour of the United States.

 

2013

It was announced that Warner Music was set to buy the record label Parlophone which was formerly a part of EMI Music from Universal Music for £487m ($765m). The Parlophone label group also included the Chrysalis and Ensign labels, but The Beatles part of Parlophone, was exempted from the sale.

2014

Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was named as the greatest song of all time by NME. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was one of the last songs written for Nirvana’s breakthrough album, ‘Nevermind’, which was released in 1991. The rest of the top 5 tracks were: 5: ‘Last Nite’, The Strokes, 4: ‘How Soon Is Now?’, The Smiths, 3: ‘I Feel Love’, Donna Summer, 2: ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, J Joy Division

2017

US Tax Court Judge Mark Holmes had always been puzzled by the rap at the end of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, so when the star’s former lawyer John Branca appeared in front of him, he took the opportunity to settle the matter. “What exactly does ‘the funk of 40,000 years’ mean?” “Karma,” answered Branca. The exchange came during the first day of a trial looking into Michael Jackson’s debts to the taxman. The IRS claimed that Jackson’s estate owed it over $700 million (£566 million) in taxes and penalties, a massive chunk of the star’s estimated $1bn fortune. It put Jackson’s team in the strange position of arguing the star was worth much less, after his image was tarnished by accusations of child molestation, skin bleaching and drug use.
