There are some chronological mistakes to correct :
Mentionning "June 14, 1959" as the date on which Elvis attended the show with Nancy Holloway at the Mouling Rouge is a common error found even on Nancy Holloway's website. But on that day (June 14th), even though Elvis was on leave since the 13th, he had some public relation event to perform in Munich, Germany, before leaving for Paris, arriving on the 15th. Likewise, a press conference (footage in b&w and recording of that event are plentiful on Internet) was organized in his hotel (Prince de Galles on George V avenue, close to the famous Champs-Elysées avenue) on the 17th of June.
The very same night (June 17th), he went to the Moulin Rouge and met Nancy Holloway apparently twice (during intermission and after the show, since she, like performers often do during a show, changed her dress or wore, backstage, a large négligé over it, as seen on the photos).
I discard the hypothesis that these photo sessions were on two separate days ; on the photos, everybody else have the same clothes, check with André Pousse's neck tie. Only the various printing processes may seem to fade Elvis' black suit to gray.
Likewise, very often, famous singer and movie star Line Renaud likes to say that she had the good fortune of having Elvis' visit on his 25th birthday (January 8th 1960), also backstage at the Casino de Paris where he met again the Golden Gate Quartet he admired. But it was a few days later (on the 12th), because, on the 8th, he was doing an important interview in Germany, precisely on the occasion of his birthday.
Finally, it is often believed that his third and last stay in Paris ended on January 17th, but he left on the 20th, since he had an entire week long session of japanese martial art. Reports of the exact details of his departure, in Gare de l'Est train station, are found on Internet.
