Not just ridiculous, but proven false in 1957.

bripet56 wrote:July 20-29, 1956 has always been my guess for these photos but the reports have always been that the Shearer photos were shot right after Elvis returned from his August tour of Florida.

As long as you don't call us "Ace and Gary," I'm happy.

bripet56 wrote:No Doc, that car on page 84 in Memphis Lonesome is Elvis' yellow 1954 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible which he traded in for the Lincoln Premiere on July 21, 1956. Anyway, the car has nothing to do with the dating of the Shearer photos as it is actually a Wertheimer photo that has been included in the book.
bripet56 wrote:Never thought of using the IMDB for the premiere dates for the movies. Of course, this is not any proof of when they played in Memphis but at least it gives us an indication. Still, it fits in perfectly with the July 20-29 period.

bripet56 wrote:Keith Richards, Jr! The photo of little Royce Hanson is no fake. I have the actual newspaper article from 1955 and it reads as follows:
A highlight of the show was the appearance of Royce Hanson of Tyler, 3½ year old "Elvis Presley Jr." The youngster caught the crowd's eye with mimery of the Hayride star, using a pee-wee size guitar or ukelele. The announcer finally conceded and brought the boy onstage, complete with cowboy boots and knee wobbling.
Below the actual photo it said:
PINT SIZE ELVIS PRESLEY -- It was hard to tell who the girls were squealing for when Royce Hanson, 3½ year old youngster from Tyler, got onstage with his imitation of the "Bobbing Hillbilly," Elvis Presley

And then of course there's the tiny problem with money to publish such a work whicj should be done on quality paper with hard-back and even some photos in colour. I haven't given up on my 1957-project yet, although it's been 12½ year since "The Atomic Powered Singer" was published.
