Fantastic! You can see Red West in one of the photos, too.

If you don't mind, Brian, here's the page link:

A question does arise: with evident years of touch football experience, how did Elvis manage to throw a duck during the park scene in "Change Of Habit"?

Thanks for posting, seen these pictures before however its been a long time......

Man those must have been fun times for everyone.....

I wonder how good Elvis really was at football, he sure seems to get right in there with everyone else.

More good stuff, guys. Indeed, that's Red stepping into the football on the "Opening Kickoff." Glad I never had to get in front of ol' Red on a football field...

My guess is that Elvis was pretty good at the game. At least he liked the sport so much he got himself a team of players in the 1960´s.

I just uploaded more stories on the website http://www.brian56.dk

Also put new photos on September 29, 1956, one of which is of Dennis Day doing an imitation of a Japanese imitating Elvis.

Right Doc, that´s Dorothy Harmony. Elvis had met her in Las Vegas when he visited the city in November 56 and invited her to Graceland to spent the Christmas Holiday.

I knew it was Dorothy, t'was Funky who was unsure.

But it does seem no one can answer MY question about the errant football toss in "Change Of Habit."

I just checked this out.

It was definitely a ball he threw.

Heh heh. It became a "duck" the second it left his hand.

Another presley mystery for the ages!!
