Another fascinating article, thank you for posting it, The fool
Insights in the text include:
Elvis' only chance to remain King of the Pop Singers is to become a big movie star.
Did Tom Parker write this?
After that [G.I. Blues], if Elvis' popularity holds strong, Hal Wallis will put him in "Rodeo" at Paramount, and then he'll loan him to 20th Century-Fox for the Dick Powell production of "Solo."
I have no idea what the first film became, but the second is almost certainly the 1958
film "The Hunters," starring Robert Mitchum, Robert Wagner and Richard Egan.
It was both produced and directed by Dick Powell: The Hunters (20th Century-Fox, August 1958)
Obviously, some of this article is rehashed from old press. Note elsewhere the part about Elvis saying he never smiles -- that's a well-known quote from 1956. Also, these photos are new to my eyes:May 1957, at MGM StudiosThis may be the mail he got after he went to the hospital to remove a tooth cap from his lung.On the MGM sound stage, May 1, 1957With the Jordanaires, Dudley Brooks (piano), MGM executivesJune 1957, with Ann Neyland at MGM
