Thank you very much, Mississippi, great photo. But i think this was on August 8, 1957. On August 9, 1957 Memphis Press Scimitar wrote:
"Starlet Drops In.
Elvis Presley again has a beauteous house guest, this time Venetia Stevenson, Warner starlet. She was selected from 4,000 contestants in Popular Photography Magazine's contest for the "most photogenic girl in the world." Ed Sullivan, judge of the contest, had her on his program last Sunday night. She is the daughter of Anna Lee, British actress and Robert Stevenson, director-producer. Venetia was married briefly to Russ Tamblyn, young actor. Venetia arrived Wednesday night (August 7, 1957) and Elvis met her plane in a white Cadillac, was so excited he drove off without her luggage, but soon returned for it. Last midnight (August , with four of his boy friends, Elvis took Venetia to a private showing of his second movie, "Loving You" at the Strand. It was the fourth time Elvis has seen the picture. The Presley party drove up to the alley entrance behind the theater. Note Elvis' initials on his shirt. Elvis has had previous young women visitors from Hollywood. A police car escorted Elvis' black Fleetwood Cadillac when he drove it behind the Strand Theater last night, where the picture was taken."
This info i have from this forum, i can't remeber what topic was.
And here's an alternate photo:

Might be Arthur Hooten.

It's not Hooten.

That would be Louis Harris who accompanied Elvis and the rest of the gang to the Fairgrounds.

And, by the way, the photo would be from August 8, not August 9, just like Hilton 22000 wrote in an earlier post. The Press Scimitar article comes from August 9 and speaks about the incident last midnight.

I'm not sure Doc but I think he worked briefly for Elvis during 1957. I think I've read that somewhere.

Harris was still on the scene as of August, '58. He is in a photo taken while Elvis awaited word on his mother's condition. The picture was in Jerry Hopkins' first book.
