Osmonds

Sun Nov 12, 2006 2:04 pm

I was watching a tv program this morning where Jay and Jimmy Osmond recounted a story that claimed Elvis often went to their shows and indeed one time they had told Jimmy that he was there watching and the poor little fella was so nervous he threw up all over a lady in the front row. Is there any evidence that he "often" went to see them, they didnt strike me as something he'd have been that interested in.

Eddie I saw the same thing too.........Vernon Kaye didnt seem to believe him did he and made him back track and say it again. I cant see why Jimmy Osmond would say it if it didnt happen..............a picture of them together would be great though :D

Never.

Elvis' point of reference was Johnny Mathis ("The Twelfth If Never," 1957) and Don and Dewey ("I'm Leavin' It All Up To You," 1957), respectively.

Donnie and Marie Osmond's cover of "I'm Leaving It Up To You" was issued in 1974, more than two years after Elvis' known performances in rehearsal and concert. And they were pulling from a whitebread cover of the Don and Dewey single, released in late 1963 by Dale and Grace.

Hope you enjoyed your latest history lesson.

I have been reading today about a new film being made about Elvis's visits to Morman Missionaries............and that Elvis's Book of Morman was bequeathd to the Osmonds from the Presley estate.

May be some truth to him going to see them in Vegas after all :shock:

False.

Does anyone know anymore about this film? It seems there is some truth in it somewhere

Fri Nov 17, 2006 3:25 pm

Well, I still can't see why it "seems there is some truth in it somewhere", Sid?
The movie sounds awful!

The last hours of Elvis Presley's life at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee are portrayed in dramatic and authentic detail in "Tears of a King", as he struggled to overcome his addictions to prescription drugs and sought for religious truths. Much of his life and career are retold in flashback sequences.

Elvis is played by actor Matt Lewis, who bears a strong physical resemblance to The King, and with the help of foam prosthetics and the skills of makeup artist Tara Starling, his on-screen appearance at different stages of Elvis's life will enthrall even the most devoted of Presley's fans. He sings several songs in the movie, and visitors to the movie set found it hard to distinguish Lewis's singing voice from actual Elvis recordings.


Please, no!
