I just took another look, Davide and enjoyed this thread all over again. I count three dead links on page ... :?

I love his easy going happy 34-year old look at this time. What a pity he'd not live another full decade.

Davide, I enjoyed this thread so much that I just watched "Change Of Habit." Elvis singing "Rubberneckin" is just fabulous!

"Thank you" for another wonderful post.

Not quite. More likely a change in priorities. Still, it does feel a bit like being dumped.

Well, I can imagine he needs money to invest in all those beautiful pictures. A pity though that those pictures are only to be seen by those who can afford it now...

I'm just mad at myself for not right-clicking on that clipping! And keeping it. It was significant!

It was an unusual joint interview with him and Mary Tyler Moore. They were each asked how they got in the business. His answer is something he never said anywhere else. Ever. It was fascinating.

I just pray it is included in the book. This is my fave eye-candy Elvis film, for one thing, and the information is just fascinating. I will get the book. No question. Oh, and the pictures! I would skip some meals to get it! Yessir!

Besides the odd revelations about the 6-26-1954 visit to Sun, and Sam's attempt to get Elvis to cut "Without You," we learn Mary leaving the set in tears during one sequence for 1969's "Change of Habit." Director Billy Graham recalls Moore's concern in a later interview:

The little girl had a problem and was mistreated by a doctor on the set?

Well, no, there wasn't a doctor on the set, and I don't think she was actually autistic, but that was what she was playing. And we had gone up to see a doctor up in San Jose who had way of treating autism that he called rage reduction and it was very controversial. Not everybody believed in it. I mean people still believe that there is no treatment for autism. Mary Tyler Moore was very concerned about the way we were doing this. It involved Elvis holding the child in his arms and letting the child struggle because she felt contained, you know, and going into a rage, but he would still hold her and continue to hold her until finally she would quiet down. And this doctor up in San Jose said he had treated many children successfully and had them recover from autism using this technique.

James VRoy wrote in this thread, about a post that was missing:

Interestingly enough if you google "I'll never do it,the Colonel won't let me" you'll find it.



So I thought, let's do that now, see what happens.

It took some page turning through the results, but it lead me to:

http://photos.elvispresley.com.au/movies/1969_change_of_habit.html#sthash.6N2oWxdT.dpbs

Most of the photos that were used in this thread, are on that site. Author being mentioned: David English.


I thought, well, now let's google the title of this thread. Again, see what happens.

It let me to "The Boner Family History Site".
https://bonarhistory.wordpress.com/gruenberg/elvis/

For photos see that site, for the photos used are all copy and download protected. Let's respect that. Nice: a photo of Elvis with Glassman’s deli man, Joe Guss. They are standing directly behind the deli counter on the raised platform which is integral to that area of the store.



Elvis Presley in ‘Change of Habit': on location at Glassman’s Market

n the Spring of 1969, Universal Studios chose Glassman’s Market, an open-front establishment on Western Ave in Hollywood, as one of the sites for a new film starring Elvis Presley. Glassman’s, owned and managed by Merrill and Sandra Bonar, was a well-known venue frequented by studio personnel who lived in Hollywood and appreciated Merrill’s fine selection of deli and produce. Merrill reports that he personally signed the contract with Universal, and spent a good part of the morning of the shoot making preparations for the film crew to set up for what was to be Elvis’ last film, Change of Habit. Merrill reports that Universal paid him $500.00 dollars for the day.

Walt Gilmore, the assistant trainee-director explained why Glassman’s was chosen: “Well it is a big deal to stock a set. It is much cheaper to go down and rent a place like that. We only had it for half a day, they didn’t loose a lot of business”. In fact, due to the dwindling movie audience, Universal was downsizing, putting all of its efforts into TV.

In the movie, Glassman’s Market was cast as the Ajax Market, a store in a ghetto neighborhood managed by a rascal who comes into conflict with his store’s patrons. The film included not only Elvis, but four additional actors who went on to build substantial careers: the co-star Mary Tyler Moore (Dick Van Dyke Show; Mary Tyler Moore Show), plus Barbara McNair (The Barbara McNair Show), Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore Show; Lou Grant), and Jane Elliot (General Hospital, Knots Landing, Guiding Light).

In addition to Merrill Bonar’s unparallelled experience with Universal Studios’ production of Elvis final movie, Change of Habit, there are two additional situations where family members were connected with the movie studios in Los Angeles.

1) Elvis had been originally contracted to Paramount with permission to be loaned out to additional studios. One of these was MGM whose contracts were handled by Merrill’s cousin, Gene Wyman. In addition, Paramount was part of a corporation which included the Acapulco Towers in Mexico among its holdings. It was at the ‘Towers’ where many a film contract was worked out; and it so happens that Gene was one of the 12 investors in that enterprise. To be sure, one might suspect a connection here. When asked what part Gene played, if any, in bringing Glassman’s Market to the attention of Universal when it was scouting for such a location rather than building a special set for the Ajax Market, Merrill Bonar replied with a solid negative.

2) Merrill reported to Chick Lehrer that, on behalf of several of the ‘higher-ups’ at CBS Studios, he prepared ‘deli’ once a week for delivery to the special executive commissary there. Was it this connection which alerted scouts at Universal in their search for a small market needed for the upcoming film, Change of Habit? Once again, the motion-picture attorney, Gene Wyman, who was Merrill’s cousin, might have been part of this scenario since William Paley, who headed CBS, was a close acquaintance of Gene. And again, Merrill firmly said that neither his nor Gene Wyman’s connection with CBS played any part in Glassman’s Market being the choice of venue for the Ajax Market.

etc.
