Any info on day and month of 1965 this pic comes from? I'm pretty sure they signed checks for charity on this meeting.

It's from Thursday, June 24, 1965. Elvis took publicity stills for "Frankie and Johnny" and then attended a special on-set ceremony at Samuel Goldwyn Studios for the Motion Picture Relief Fund, which helped out-of-work actors. Elvis cut a check for $50,000. Frank and actress Barbara Stanwyck were there as well as famous comedian Bud Abbott and others.

The first 78 seconds of this YouTube video are from this event:

Great!


Another "share"!

I have an "Elvis Friends" list, so the civilians don't make rude comments. But maybe I'll open this one up!

That's $371,233.33 in todays money, and yet another reason Elvis was on the road in 1977 trying to pay the bills..

Actually, no. That check was tax-deductible, although it's doubtful management advised him as such.

Elvis was on the road in 1977 because of long-term financial mismanagement.

I posted this pic and another one with Elvis, Sinatra and Astaire in 1969. People on my friend list loved it and many of them shared. I was surprised with the result.
