Yes, it's on page 142......................"I have to admit that I was disappointed to discover that the barber shop scene in 'Loving you', wherin Deke Rivers gives me a haircut, had been cut from the film, and as I sat there and watched the movie and listened to Dolores Hart as Susan Jessup sing 'Detour' I reflected on the detours, wrong-turns, deadends and alternate routes on the roadmap of Elvis' life...................."

There is a very brief appearance of the number 'Detour' with Dolores Hart in the finished movie at the 17:29 mark (NTSC) - though not Dolores Hart's vocal.

Question : We hear you singing a snatch of 'Detour' in the movie?
Dolores Hart : That was not my voice. I do all my own singing in the monastery now, but back then there just wasn't the time for me to do that. Everything happened so quickly and I wasn't able to work at it, so someone else did the singing
words and music by Paul Westmoreland.

Patti Page version who was married to Charles O'Curran at the time of the movie.

From an Interview in ETMAHM 62.

Hi

I'm afraid that as I have explained previously the photos have gone from the image host site, and this has not be done by myself - considering the amount I put into the posts/topics, it's very frustrating to say the least.

with thanks
