Someone asked about Pics of Tuesday Weld.

Here are a few images from the pages of my collection of early "Photoplay" magazines. From around 1961-62.

This isn't what this thread is about but I just wanted to post it....

I just saw the 1965 film, The Cincinnati Kid on tv.

There is a delicious moment when Ann-Margret, after a little playing around with Steve McQueen, answers a knock at his hotel room door to come face-to-face with his 'real' girl, Tuesday Weld !

The looks they give each other were a joy !

And another Elvis co-star, Joan Blondell, is also in the film !

Three Elvis co-stars together in a film - is there any other example of this happening ?

Well, yeah, but I was really thinking of lady co-stars......

And ex-lovers don't count [unless they were also in a film with him].

Carolyn Jones (1930-1983). I didn't know she was older than Elvis.

"Most Promising Newcomer. Strong movie roles took her to the end of the decade, including two memorable parts with two 20th-century kings. In late '57, Elvis was feeling a draft � Uncle Sam had come knocking, and Elvis was expected to report for induction into the army in January '58. Unfortunately, King Creole was scheduled to begin shooting at the same time. The great Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) was on board to direct this tale of a New Orleans singer, and Carolyn Jones was set to co-star as a good girl gone bad. Only by grace of a special deferment was Elvis's induction postponed to March 24th, which meant he could still make the film in January and February as planned. Which meant Carolyn's character got to die in Elvis's arms as scheduled. Which meant more resplendent notices for Carolyn: Variety praised her performance as "strong" and "moving." Then, teamed with Sinatra in Frank Capra's syrupy A Hole in the Head in '59, Carolyn once again stole the spotlight with a convincing performance that was the best thing in the movie. After the '60s, she made some more TV movies and was one of the stars on the series "Capitol" in '82, bravely carrying on though her health was failing. Sadly, in '83 Carolyn Jones died of cancer at the age of only 53. Her early death may have been tragic, but her life was triumphant."
