Here's a cool photo of Elvis with "Change of Habit" co-star Bill Elliot on the Universal set in spring 1969.

Elliot, both musician (drummer with the Thoda Scott Trio) and actor, starred in many TV shows and films in the 1970s. He was twice married to singer Dionne Warwick -- they were together, on and off, from 1965 to 1975. He passed away from a heart attack, on September 29, 1983, at the age of 49.

That's a very misleading title. I thought it was a reference to Elvis being a friend of Bill O'Reilly.

Thanks.

That was the inference, of course. Glad it's only missed by a few. ;-)

Elliott had an interesting life.

He did. Great photo!

As to the topic, people need Greil Marcus's "Double Trouble" book.

All will be clear!

P.S. -- If you notice, it seems a girl has his hand in her grip. And won't let go! :lol:

On the fuller version of the photo you can see it's not a girl holding his hand, it's someone putting a dressing on his finger. See Joseph Tunzi's "Elvis 69" book.

That is a hilarious book, although the contents only apply to the title of this topic.

49 is too young. Bill Elliot was very good in "Change of Habit," especially the scene with Barbara McNair, and his TV appearances in the '70s were well-received.

It is fascinating the connections one finds when researching Elvis' life and career.
