Thank you for both parts of this posting: simply awesome.

It must have been quite wonderful to be Elvis Presley in early 1957.

A Loving You daily call sheet was sent to Elvis at his movie studio office/dressing room. This is the production sheet sent to him for Friday, March 8, 1957,the last day of production for a re-shoot. On that day, co-star Lizabeth Scott, Wendell Corey, and Ralph Dumke had to be ready to shoot at 8:00 A.M., while Elvis didn't have to show up until later in the day to film a scene in Deke's jalopy. The set was closed.
The reverse side of the call sheet lists all the support personnel required for the day...makeup people, hairdressers, electricians, cameramen, sound recorder, etc. Five gallons of coffee were ordered for the crew at 7:30 A.M. and then again at 2:30 P.M.

Hi David -

Wonderful, as always.

You may want to flip these images, as they are reversed:

BLOODY HELL!!! That's magnificent. It seems an "Inside Loving you" volume 2 book is well overdue as Davide did a similar posting on this film not so long ago. Where do you get all this stuff, Sir Davide???

The material normally comes from auction sites and old books and magazine's. I still havn't been able to get hold of a copy of 'Inside Loving You.'

I've got loads of books and mags on Elvis (and I dare say many here have also), but a lot of the pics that you post are unseen to me and many others. Thanks again.

From the same room as the top shot, this shot is said to be a scene cut from the film (as mentioned in the book "Elvis' man friday" by Gene Smith);
