Post here your Elvis' pictures

Paris, France - 1959

Sun Feb 23, 2014 8:57 pm

Following the recent topics on Elvis' visits to Paris, France, while he was on leave from the Army, here's another photo from the same period.

This is taken from a French magazine named "La Semaine Radiophonique", and this issue is dated July 19, 1959.

Elvis seems to be wearing the same red sweater we know from other similar photos.

Sorry for the low quality scan :

It's not really readable, but I can guess a few words under the Elvis photo, such as "Le roi du rock'n roll", "service militaire", "passait une ? à Paris", and "signer des autographes". Nothing important, I'm afraid.

Thanks anyway !

Most of these specific fan photo's were taken between Sunday afternoon and the 24d of June 1959 in Paris
This photo was taken Sunday June 22nd.

BTW: In others photo's you can see Louis Skorecki asking for a record to be signed. He published his photo's in Liberation (1984).
You can see some photo's in the great book "Elvis in Paris" (Jean Marie Pouzenc). What is not written in the book is that Louis Skorecki
(Loulou) was a director and author (for example: "D'où viens-tu, Dylan?"). He was one of the most original (controversial) film critics in France.
He was 16 when he met Elvis in front on his hotel in Paris. He knows Paris - end of the 50's very well.

And yes, Elvis wore the red pullover quite frequently: He also wore it earlier that year in like in Munich (March), he also wore the weekend before
going to Grafenwhoer at the Grunewald Hotel (Nov 1958...that was the day DEE called...) and at ofcourse at Syvore's Halloween Party in LA (1957).

FYI the article says: Elvis Presley, Le Roi du Rock'n Roll, en rupture de service militaire, passait une courtre permission a Paris, Reconnu
par ses < fans>, il accepta volentiers de singner des autographes

Thaks Mister Moon and E-Cat for your interesting and always much appreciated inputs. As you mention it E-Cat, Louis Skorecki was a film critic of the radical and controversial kind, writing for example in the famous Cahiers du Cinema around 1960. He considered for example Rio Bravo to be the last great classic movie. You can guess what he thought of Elvis movies, saying that he was sometimes directed by good directors but that the result was always disastrous…Anyway, he and his mate Richard had the privilege to meet the King outside the Prince de Galles Hotel, and that is now History…
