This promotional visit is seen in This Is Elvis -- or Elvis '56, can't recall -- and it's hilarious how "cool" and almost surly he comes off, chewing his gum in a most prominent manner.

Fifty years later, you still see Wink Martindale on TV every now and then.

Thanks for sharing the video Little Sister .... really enjoyed watching it..
does anybody know who got the diamond ring??

Yep, the happy recipient of Elvis' $600 initial ring was 17-year-old Roger Fakes, 219 Rose Road, a recent graduate of East High.

I even got a photo from the presentation in my book. I'll try and post it later (if I remember) but now I gotta hit the bed for some sleep before I take my family to Sunny Beach, Bulgaria for a one-week vacation tomorrow.

Hey, Little sister, thanks for the link !

But there is a bit more of this interview, isn't there ?

Fri Jun 23, 2006 2:07 am

Yes, there is a lot more of this interview. I am not sure if all is available on video though, but I think Brian had a full transcipt in his book. Am I right Brian?

Here a few more photos from backstage of the show. The first three are courtesy of Stacy.

GREAT pictures Little Sister!

What a hot cat! So generous of him to donate the initial ring, even though it might have been Parker's idea. Anyone? Also didn't Wink write a book? And did I read somewhere that color pictures of this appearance exist?

Thanks for the upload LS. Stockholm is a great city.

Thanks J... I had actually posted your photo too, but for some reason the link didn't work. Although your seemed a lot more cleaned up, but here is mine together with one more photo from this date. Courtesy of Stacy

Melani - I would love to see a color photo from this date. He looks so concervative when you see his photos in black and white, but I am sure he was wearing some flashy color.

Also, thanks, yes Stockholm is a great city. And I got to go to the archipelago this time too, a first. It was really beauitful!! But now I am back in Dalecarlia to celebrate midsummer... Very Swedish!!
