RIP Kim Howe (Double Trouble)

Post by MikeFromHolland »

.

As you may have read reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a car crash. In this crash a woman died. That woman appears to be Kim Howe (69).

Kim played a very small part in Double Trouble. it seems the only part she ever played.

RIP Kim.

Those look like screen grabs, but are actually stills. It's apparently the same woman, according to this very reputable site:

http://www.tmz.com/2015/02/20/bruce-jenner-crash-victim-elvis-video-kim-howe-dead/

It's not a mystery why Kim was awarded the role of an ample Fräulein. Interestingly, we also see pal Richard Davis in this sequence handing his boss a cool pint, while competing for the Pinocchio lookalike awards.

"Double Trouble" is a film I have a difficult time remembering, for some reason, but for Kim it must have been an awesome memory. Poor lady. It's a little ironic her car was hit by U.S. Olympic Gold medalist Bruce Jenner, as he was at one time married to ex-Presley girlfriend Linda Thompson.

Anyway, here is Kim's moment, starting at about :35 in the YouTube video:


..
Elvis Presley and a cast of hundreds "I Love Only One Girl" (MGM's "Double Trouble" April 5, 1967)
Song composed by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett.

You know, anyone between the ages of 13 and 25 who saw this Presley flick must have wondered, what in the hell is going on here?

Elvis was just 31 when this was filmed but about as far away from vital songcraft or quality movie-making as the Moon from the Earth.

Thank you Doc and Greystoke for the additional information!

From what I read (I'm not that much into celebrity life in US):

Bruce Jenner at one time was married to Linda Thompson indeed. And more recently he was step-father to Kim Kardashian:

In The Netherlands we only know Kim of this famous picture that made the rounds here - even on National TV:

The biological father of Kim Kardashian, however, was Robert Kardashian:

And Robert Kardashian, on his turn, had a short relationship with Priscilla Presley. I read three months in 1976 somewhere.
Photos dated March 27, 1976. Taken at her home in Beverly Hills, CA for an exclusive photo session (photos taken by by Ron Galella).

On Getty Images you'll also find a photo of the two. But there they mention "Mike Stone" as being the man portraited here. I don't think it is Mike Stone. It is Robert.

Never thought I would ever write a gossip page :wink: .

Neither am I, which is why I didn't bother bringing in any Kardashian garbage via a very tenuous link to Elvis. ;-)

Don't know those people at all here in Holland. Like I wrote, we only know Kim from her butt :oops: . But that Robert guy doesn't seem that trashy to me:
Growing up in the Baldwin Hills area of Los Angeles, Kardashian attended Dorsey High School and the University of Southern California, from which he graduated in 1966 with a bachelor's degree in business administration.[4] He then earned a law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law and practiced for about a decade; after that, he went into business. In 1973 he was one of the co-founders of the trade publication Radio & Records, which he and his partners sold for a large profit in 1979.

Or has it something to do with:
Simpson stayed in Kardashian's house during the days following the June 12, 1994, murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Kardashian was the man seen carrying Simpson's garment bag the day that Simpson flew back from Chicago. Prosecutors speculated that the bag may have contained Simpson's bloody clothes or the murder weapon
?

(same source)

PS: it's the Off Topic area, so we can talk trash here, can't we? :wink:
