She doesn't look as beautiful in that picture as some of the others of her that i've seen.

I thought she was beautiful and going by her 1977 playboy photo shoot she had a nice body.

More attractive than Joyce Bova anyway.

For some reason, Elvis liked ugly girls.

It's not from 1970.

Actresses Barbara Lyle, Jessica St. John, Barbara Leigh - Caesar's Palace, December 1974


Photo likely taken at Sammy Davis Jr.'s headlining gig in the Circus Maximus showroom at Caesar's Palace in December 1974, his first in a long while (see invite on table).

As for the original photo in the first post, that woman has been misidentified as Barbara Leigh for years, despite efforts to convince people otherwise.

Note that the girl does not resemble Leigh, and the screen capture is TTWII footage filmed before Barbara met Elvis.

From an interview

When and how did you first meet Elvis Presley?

Leigh: Elvis was introduced to me through my boyfriend, Jim Aubrey, who was the president of MGM studios at the time. He was a powerful player in Hollywood and was the inspiration for Jacqueline Susan's famous book and movie "The Love Machine." Jim took me to see Elvis' show at the Las Vegas Hilton in August 1970 because he was making arrangements for MGM to distribute, "Elvis: That's the Way It Is.". After the show we were invited to meet the King back in his private dressing room. I met Elvis face-to-face when he sat down next to me, staring directly into my eyes. He spotted me in the audience that night and was prepared to get my phone number that night without anyone seeing

My curiosity knows no boundaries. I did a little more digging, and determined that Barbara Leigh and her friends likely attended Sammy Davis Jr.'s headlining gig in the Circus Maximus Showroom at Caesar's Palace in December 1974, his first in quite a while:

How neat! She is still so lovely.

Do you work with Barbara Leigh? Her website lists efforts with both charitable organizations as well as work in real estate and with Playboy (!).

That would be neat. If she remembers when she first saw Elvis at the International (as MGM honcho Jim Aubrey's date), or exactly how long they stayed in touch, that would be insightful. Also, what are her thoughts on Elvis, 1974-1977?

Re: Barbara Leigh ??

Fri Dec 14, 2012 4:31 pm

Also, ask her where she got the turquiose necklace in the photo from Cesars Palace in December - could she have collected it as a keepsake from our hero? Perhaps the rascal that was Elvis was still interested in her.

It looks very similar to this one!
