Great pics and article! Thanks for posting!

Elvis is quoted..."I'm still me. If there were a new Elvis, he'd being a phony, and I'd rather go back to driving a truck than be a phony. I mean that."

Last page at the bottom below The End.... (Elvis Presley is in Paramount Pictures' "G.I. Blues" and "Hawaii Beach Boy," United Artists "Pioneer Go Home!" and 20th Century-Fox's "Black Star.")

G.I. Blues was part of Parker's plan to soften Elvis' rebel image and Parker already had "Blue Hawaii" and "Follow That Dream" in the works.

Elvis was unhappy with the song selection in G.I. Blues.

Back in 1960, Elvis and Parker were not on the same page with what Elvis wanted. This was the time for Elvis to have told Parker to “Hit The Road Andreas and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.”

Thanks for posting addtional pages. A lot of Great pics! Great article! really enjoyed reading it!

Interesting reading (last page at bottom) when she says, "Elvis is a conserative dresser, which somewhat surprised me after having seen so many pictures of the gaudy cloths he used to wear. I wouldn't be surprised if the big change that must have come about in Elvis was due to primarily to his army days." Makes me think again about "what if" Elvis didn't go into the army.

Thank you very much, great photos, great magazine!!
Can you post a scan for this magazine, please? Only Elvis pages, of course. I said a scan becouse is much better than photographing the magazine with a camera.
