As always, an interesting share.

Ted Maddox appears to be a career PR guy for magazines like Movie Mirror and Photoplay. His look at Elvis must have made management so very happy, although Maddox left out the part about Presley walking across his L.A. swimming pool ;-)

One of the photos is new to my eyes:

Here's another from this meeting:

How Elvis ran into the actress: Bobby Darin was opening for George Burns at the Sahara Hotel, starting July 12, 1960. And there was a surprise 65th birthday party thrown for Burns' wife, Gracie Allen, on Tuesday, July 26, 1960. This must be when Elvis was there, as in other photos with that tuxedo you see Bobby with Elvis, and also Burns, his family, and Elvis together.

The lovely Miss van Vooren is still with us today, and will turn 87 in three days! She's a Belgian-born American actress and dancer, although I only know her from her 1968 appearance on TV's "Batman."

Here's a lovely shot, taken during her halcyon days in Hollywood.

It's a pleasure to be a part of your topics. Do you know who that lovely lady is in that photo from the Sahara?
