Kirk Kerkorian was not seen in the original TTWII version.

However, he can be seen briefly in the TTWII SE DVD
version at the end of the movie when they show the
August 10th Opening Show Party footage...

Kirk Kerkorian is filmed from the side profile just as
he enters for only a few seconds, just before Cary Grant
is filmed briefly talking to Elvis....

It should be noted too, Kerkorian was filmed briefly
on Opening Night August the 10th 1970 as the VIP
crowd is being let into the showroom along with some
being interviewed before entering....

Kerkorian was asked if he would like to comment, he shook
his head and moved on...into the showroom..

Did you all know Kirkorian had a huge crush on the King's wife??

I don't know if it was mutual but I read she went with him on his yacht to Saint tropez after she divorced Elvis or after his death , not sure anymore.

Therefor I was curious to see how he looked.

In my opinion he was not a handsome man tough.

If I was Pris, OMG I knew who I had prefered.

Sometimes I do wonder if she was a bit blind :lol:

Looks don't really matter to, too many people when
the other person your looking at, is the color Green..$$$

Here's a mini Bio on Kerkorian...for anyone interested in
reading this :wink:

Kirk Kerkorian
Kerkor "Kirk" Kerkorian was born in 1917 in Fresno,
California. The Armenian-American to-be-billionaire
started as an amateur boxing after he quit school in
the 8th grade and as a pilot During World War II.

He began his long career as a successful businessman
in 1947, when he bought a small air-charter service
company, TransInternational Airlines, which used to
fly gamblers from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
Kerkorian bought the company for $60,000 and
sold it in 1968, after operating it for 21 years,
for $104 million to Trans-America Corporation.

In 1962 Kerkorian made what is probably the best
deal of his life when he purchased 80 acres in Las Vegas,
across from the Flamingo Hotel for only $960,000,
which was cheap for the land even then. Caesars Palace
was built on that land, which Krekorian rented to the
casino and hotel and then sold to it for $9 million in 1969.

In 1967, he bought 82 acres of land on Paradise Road
in Las Vegas and built what was considered then the
largest hotel in the world - the International Hotel.
Elvis Presley was the regular performer at the hotel,
bringing in more than 4,000 customers every day,
for 30 days straight, breaking in the process all
attendance records in the Las Vegas's history.

Kerkorian made another successful deal in 1973,
when he acquired MGM movie studio, fulfilling a
life-long dream, and opening the original MGM
Grand Hotel and Casino, which was Kerkorian's
second hotel entitled "the largest hotel in the world".
Unfortunately, the hotel burned down in 1980, in what
was one of the city's worst disasters, totaling 87 deaths.
Despite this horrible fire, the hotel surprisingly reopened
after just 8 months.

In 1986, he sold the Las Vegas and Reno MGM hotels
to Bally Manufacturing for $594 million. He retained
55 percent of MGM Grand and has very recently
acquired additional 15 million shares and increased
his stake in the company to 61.7 percent.

Today, Kerkorian is the 41st richest man in the country,
he is worth about $5.7 billion.

Kerkorian is seen here, pictured in Las Vegas
in 2006 at age 89...

Thanks a lot Pep.

Boy he was much older too. Didn't know that. And he was ugly too.
Intresting to read.

Does anyone knows when she had something going on with him.

Like I said, I read it somewhere but don't remember the date anymore that she was with him. Eighter it was after divorce or after his death.

Hope Elvis didn't had to know it anymore, tough :(

If he did it must have been an additional blow I guess.
