What in the tarnation is up with his shirt? Had to be a joke. He'd yet to get to the stage of wearing jumpsuits 'round Memphis.

Nice find. It looks to be circa July 1960, just before Elvis started filming "Flaming Star." Love the black wristband with "EP" in white letters. No idea who the gal is, but if she's still with us, she is in her mid-70s now.

Thanks ed, I only had this in a very small version.

That´s a 1960 Ford Falcon behind Elvis, wonder if it´s his and if so, when did he buy it.

Here´s another from the same day and I´ve got them as July 1960 as well.

Hopefully that gal with him has had better photographs taken of her.

That same lady is on the far left. Elvis doesn't look too excited in the pictures although it could just be the timing of the picture.

Is it me, or does Elvis and the woman in the original pic, seem pissed off about something. Usually he has a big smile when it comes to pics with his fans.

It's you. ;-)

Elvis often looked away because the camera flashbulbs would wear out his vision. That photo could have been one of maybe a dozen in succession. Context is always important!

Yeah, well, we've all been there. Better to have a crappy pic of yourself with Elvis than to never have had the chance.

Nice photos! I love these candid shots of Elvis.

Great picture, thanks for sharing. Certainly July 1960 and the way Elvis has is wallet makes me fear that as a 78 year old he may well have clipped his iPhone 5 to this belt.

I think Elvis looks cool and great. Just not the usual smiles from either EP or the fan.

There you said it! ;)

Apparently, Elvis didn't give a flyin' flip what anybody thought; he knew kewl and was completely secure in himself. Always had been.

"Dandies" are NOT gay, but they dress better than anyone in the room, and they know it!

P.S. -- Katherine Hepburn, for instance, was straight as an arrow, but preferred real trousers, worn glamorously. Kind of a female dandy-in-reverse. She changed the world. People like that are heroic.

I did a little correction on that to improve the colours.

Do you know something? She seemed very enamored of men. I never heard otherwise.

I read her book many years ago. I'll Google the question.

I don't know for certain, but there have certainly been rumours.

Some scandal-bios in recent years.

If she had been, I don't think she'd be the type to deny it. There were rumors, due to her strong personality, which she did deny. One book tried to say her relationship with Tracy was not real. And that's pure trash. They loved each other dearly. The guy was married!

Seems like one can't be different in this world without gossips.

There are rumors about Katherine being Bisexual, but of course we don't know!
