Jailhouse Rock photo session date.

Fri Sep 13, 2013 3:32 pm

I was asked by Elvis Photo Shoot Session EPSS http://elvicities.com/~epss/index.php/ if I could help with any info on the dates for the photo sessions and I thought that it would be an impossible task but I think that I have almost nailed the date for the session on which the photo below was taken.

According to Inside Jailhouse Rock the scene below was shot on June 5 and on the wall in the background you can see photos from the above session so that at least narrowed it down a bit.

Then I found the image below (don´t know where I got it from but I´ve had it for at least a couple of years).

As you can see it is a sketch of three poses used for this photo session and the date reads something like 5/10, 5/15, 5/16, 5/18.
However, in the afternoon of May 15 Elvis was admitted to the hospital because of the toothcap that he swallowed the previous day and he didn´t get back to the studio untill the 20th so it´s either May 10 or May 15.
It does look a little bit more like 5/15 than 5/10 to me but it´s hard to tell.

It is of course possible that the sketch is just an idea as to how they wanted Elvis to pose in an upcoming photo session but this is as close as we get for now.

Perhaps davide's "Jailhouse Rock" topic provides a clue?
