Will Elvis Presley Take A Foreign Bride?
by Chris Collins
Movie Stars Parade, January 1959

The photos of Elvis kissing and shaking a hand are from the Memphis railway station. Are those two other photos from the same time as well?

If a picture is worth a thousand words:

580919_leaving Fort Hood.JPG
Then I got drafted, and shafted, and everything else, man. So overnight it was all gone, it was like it never happened, it was like a dream, you know. I'd, I'd made four movies and so forth, but it was all gone.

- Elvis Presley, Tuesday, August 26, 1969 MS, International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
And are not the train photos from Elvis leaving Fort Hood on Friday, September 19, 1958?

Also, that last page upload mentions "Turn to page 30 for more on Elvis." Is there more?

Thanks for the latest post, The fool!

Cool, thanks as always for your great work in scanning and posting these old fascinating articles.
Haven´t got time to read it right now but certainly will.

Did you recognize George Klein in the first photo where Elvis is leaning out the window to kiss a lucky girl?

No mistaking that nose, even after Elvis helped him out. And though he's caught in the fold of the magazine, there's no mistaking "ol' Hog Ears," Alan Fortas. Also there beaming is Louis Harris.

Anita Wood is not in that photo, but she saw Presley off as well.

Note friends watching girl being kissed: George Klein, Alan Fortas and Louis Harris.
