Post here your Elvis' pictures

Presley Having Fun In Paris -> June 14, 1959

Thu Sep 27, 2007 7:28 am

During Elvis' overseas army duties, he found some time to leave Germany and have a little off-duty fun. One example was about a week in the middle of June 1959, when he traveled to Paris.

On Sunday night, June 14, he caught Italian entertainer Torrebruno, U.S. singer Nancy Holloway and others at the Moulin Rouge ->

Holloway was very popular overseas, doing French versions of pop and soul hits, but she never broke through in the U.S.

Most of these images were first published about 20 years ago in a photo journal called "Elvis In Paris."

Does Elvis look fazed by the attention?

The final two shots are clearly not from June 14, as both Nancy and Elvis are wearing different outfits.

Notice also how Elvis is strumming Torrebruno's famed classical acoustic guitar in the last photo. One might say Presley "played around" quite a bit that week in Paris, but I'll leave those stories for someone else to elaborate.

Bonjour!

Stunning Photo's! Elvis looks like He is trying to avoid Ms Holloway's Cleavage .. So cute. Wasn't there a set of English Twins involved in this Trip too?

Did He manage to meet up with Brigitte Bardot ..which it has been written .. is the reason He went to Paris in the first place?


Apparently there is a revised edition of this Book..hopefully with more Photo's and Stories in it.

Don't think so.

She thought he was 'uncouth' anyways..................

On a technical/grammatical/theological note, when referring to Elvis as 'he' - there is no need to use a capital 'H' - he isn't a deity, you know..........

The closest he got to meeting up with Miss Bardot,was in the form of Jocelyn Lane!! altho his deisre to hook up with Bridget was well known.

Thank you Doc, for the photos....great stuff!

freddie bienstock who was with him in Paris asked EP "do you want to visit le louvre or see la tour eiffel ?" and E replied sth like "no, rather the lido"


in his biography, andré pousse recalled that elvis asked him that a photographer take a picture of him with one of the girl dancers, and A Pousse replied to him "ok but she s not a whore !!!" ( don t ask me why he said that )


the only connection between BB & EP, is that elvis had a poster of "brigitte bardot" in his room during the army

It looks like Elvis dyed his hair for the trip to Paris - which he didn't do much while in the Army (dye his hair that is).

Yeah, I have. Well, I am too young to remember him, but he came to Spain to host his own show in the 60's-70's...

Yes, he was extremely well-known among young kids here. He worked and lived here from 1958 until his death in 1998. Yes, he was an icon for a whole generation of people.

This was one of his most famous shows, La Guagua, looks kinda cheesy now, but...

Many thx DJC!
I have compared the pics as posted from her website with the pictures as shown at an exposition about Nancy's career last weekend in Paris. There is one picture - which is not shown on her website (so there's hope that more will surface") which is new to me:

Interesting. Thanks, E-Cat. It's another shot of actor André Pousse, Nancy Holloway and Elvis, from the second series of photos.

Look at the framed photo on display on the far right -- it's a reverse image!

I saw Nancy Holloway last Sunday in Paris, she was attending a recording fair and singing and autographing her picture. She's still a 50s/60s icon in France and she definitely met Elvis, which gives her some unusual credits. Among other french " stars" having met Elvis there are Line Renaud ( who also played Vegas and met him again in 1964 over there ) and Mireille Mathieu ( an edith piaf sequel ) who also met Elvis in 1959. There is a pic of her with him both are sat on a tool.

Did He manage to meet up with Brigitte Bardot ..


Nope, he never met her. Elvis looked up for her but she was definitely NOT the kind of woman who would have look up for Elvis. She was into movie directors and married one ( among her many weddings ) she would have thought he wasn't glamourous enough. Bardot is some kind of pretentious level headed tough lady... Never get to understand her completely. Quite controversial too...
