Thank you once again!!

Although wanting for accuracy, it's a real treasure.

I wonder if that little boy at Graceland is non-fiction, and if so, can he be found? Alberta's grandson, perhaps?

Thank you for your latest upload.

IIRC, Parsons was one of the critics who absolutely vilified Presley in the press in 1956-57. Guess something changed in 1958.

The pensive image, apparently from "King Creole" and twice used in the piece, is wonderful:

On the other hand, the prose is horrendous, taking basic facts and turning Gladys Presley's passing into a soap opera. The closing paragraph is a particular gem:


And maybe the old woman's voice had come back to Gladys Presley in that last moment and, with it, the voices of a chorus of watching angels as together they all shouted a tremendous and joyous and final Amen.

Great upload, thank you.

The "Ain't this family ever gonna have any luck" line was used in "Elvis the Movie."

IIRC, uttered by Shelley Winters?

Wince-inducing in either example.

It's a common Hawaiian phrase, one reason it was used for the Elvis project in Honolulu.
