Ann Margret rocks.. sure wish she and Elvis would of given their time together a little more time to grow. Both were very busy with careers but they made a beautiful couple.

I would then

I would now.

I would at all points in between.

What a knockout AM was and still is! It's so very understandable why after acknowledging to the 1972 Vegas crowd, that AM was in the audience, he asked Lamar to keep to spotlight on her. Class, loyalty and beauty all in one. I truly wish somehow they could have hooked up in a permanent way.

Ann-Margaret wanted a career. Elvis wanted someone to stay at home and be there for him. It never would've have worked long-term.

Oh, well, we'll never know now, will we ?

But I like to think they could have reached a compromise on that.

And with her as his wife, things could have worked out so differently......

It's nice to wish Colin ;)

But she truly was career-oriented. Some of my family know her (they went to school together) and my other friend knows her from working with her (mostly on "Bye Bye Birdie").

She is a lovely person, but her goals were to become a star. She did adore Elvis, but it's doubtful that he would've have been able to tolerate her career.

Maybe, but with Ann, he knew that going in.

Yes, that's true. But, in the long-run, it wouldn't have changed things. Elvis' ideas about wives and marriage were a part of who he was. He was upset when Joe talked to Pris in the kitchen. How would he have felt with AM kissing in movies? Having fans? Male fans?

No, it is what it is. They had a lovely relationship but, imo, it never would've been anything more.

People change.

Marriage changes people.

I still reckon we can't guess with certainty how things would have worked out if they'd married.

Ok, you hold onto that hope ;)

Elvis and Ann-Margaret were both single in early 1967. Why did they both marry other people instead of each other?

The mean ol' colonel couldn't stand Ann-Margret, her [almost] equal billing, her friendship with Elvis, or her singing with Elvis [most saw the cutting room floor and none made it to record at the time].

And his influence over Elvis was immense.

He put the kybosh on that little romance pretty damn quick............

Elvis' overcame substantial hurdles to court Cilla. If he had wanted to marry AM, it would've happened (again, imo).
