Boy, these are so interesting, with the hindsight of history. Both photos and facts make more sense. And I enjoy all of the related ads, too!

This "Most Intimate" interview by famed gossip columnist Marilyn Beck is strictly PR, the queries are no different from what Elvis was getting in 1957, although is is fascinating to learn he felt he was "a lot like Fabian" in certain respects. Or that he never got to know Sinatra well enough during the 1960 TV appearance to "form an opinion" about him. It also seems Beck took her interview notes and simply paraphrased Presley's replies.

Since Elvis breaks off the chat in order to go greet some royal visitors, and since he was visited on the "G. I. Blues" set by King Bumiphol and Queen Sirikit of Thailand on Tuesday, June 21, and by Princess Margaretha of Sweden, Princess Astrid of Norway, and Princess Margrethe of Denmark on Tuesday, June 7, we have a timeline for when Beck met the singer. It was either June 7 or 21. I'll bet the latter.

Great read, I love seeing and reading these original magazines they really put you back into that time frame, much better than reading articles writen many years after the event, when so many negatives find there way into them! I was surprised as early as May 1960 Elvis thought that his popularity had waned, but I suppose it is true that you are your most severe critic. The success of It's Now or Never a few months later, may have given him a change of mind!

No worries. It took me an hour to nail down the date of the Thailand royalty meeting.

Actually it could have been as early as May 1960 as Elvis met with King Mahendra and Queen Ratna of Nepal on May 10, 1960.
Here´s a photo from the meeting.
