No, that looks to be former Shelby county Sheriff Bill Morrie...and I thought that Alan Fortas was fired by Elvis by 1970?

Tony, I believe this pic was taken in late 1970, though I could be wrong. Not sure when Fortas left, or was let go.

The photo was taken in the Imperial Suite of the International Hotel, on December 5th '70 to mark George Klein' wedding!

To the best of my recollection, I believe Alan was fired by Elvis shortly before his (Elvis's) comeback engagement in Las Vegas in 1969.

Apparently the reason behind Elvis firing Alan was because of his (Alan's) complaining 'bout some things he (Alan) had purchased during a shopping spree when Elvis decided that everyone should pay for the stuff they'd bought on their own.
