For 27 years, the mother says she has remained silent, watching over and over as her daughter showed up in photographs on a motorcycle with Elvis Presley.

Each time, the daughter has been referred to as "an unidentified woman." "I just didn't want her to go on as an unidentified woman," says the mother, Peggy Selph Cannon of Bartlett, after the photograph appeared in The Commercial Appeal's special Turn of the Century section on Jan. 1.

Cannon says her daughter, Kathleen `Kathy' Selph, then 20, was being driven home by Elvis when the picture was shot by a photographer for The Commercial Appeal in June 1972. A neighbor showed her the photograph in the newspaper that week, and Cannon says she "reprimanded" her daughter for dating a married man. That's when she learned that Elvis and Priscilla Presley had separated.

The daughter, who had moved out of her parents' home, had been working as a dancer and singer at the old Whirlaway Club, where a member of Elvis's Memphis Mafia noticed she resembled Priscilla Presley, says Selph's brother, Steve. His sister and Elvis were introduced and dated for a while, he says.

It ended less than a month after the photograph was taken when Selph died in an automobile accident. "There was a real nice spray of flowers at her funeral from the Presley family. And there was a huge orchid at the funeral. I always felt it came from Elvis," says Cannon, who remarried after the death of her husband, former deputy fire chief E. B. Selph.

Thank you, again! (Very sad about the tragedy.)

P.S. -- Two questions:

1) Why does his face look like that?

2) Why is she apparently wearing only underpants? (I hate to be irreverent about the tragic ending to a very young life, but . . . curiosity got the better of me . . .)

Check out the expression on the faces of the young fellow(s) in the car. Something tells me it has NOTHING to do with Elvis! (The driver looks a bit stunned, and almost disapproving. But after recovery, the younger person with the shocked expression might well have asked "Daddy, why is that girl almost NAKED on that bike with Elvis?") Ya think? I mean, LOOK. It should be in an encyclopedia of facial expressions under "shock, surprised, stunned."

When he announced they were going out on the bike, she complained that her skirt was too tight for her to straddle the seat !

Elvis just told her to "Take the damn thing off !"

Which she did................

(1) It's the angle of the shot, or perhaps an allergy, or a reaction to one of his medicines
(2) As noted, she's wearing hot pants

Sorry for dragging up an older thread but Elvis's facial expression, to me, looks like he's pissed that someone took his picture.

I think it was because of the wind, might have been directly in his face.
