Thank you very much, excelent find, you're very kind becouse you share this rare magazine with us. :smt006

Another great upload, The fool -- thanks!

Most of Judy's stories here are simply PR, but it's curious to see how Elvis was very insecure performing at the New Frontier. So much so that he needed her ringside for both his early and late shows each night.

Note her support continued beyond Las Vegas. Judy would also be front and center two months later in Los Angeles for Elvis' June 5 appearance on the Milton Berle program. She even appears on camera during "Hound Dog," clapping enthusiastically.

Here are a couple of April 1956 shots at the New Frontier I've not seen before:
