This quote from the article of what Marilyn said Elvis told her is so heartbreaking to read:

Quote:
But he said, "I would like to make one good film, because I know people in this town laugh at me." And I thought with all his success, he wanted to make a movie that was apart from all his so-called Elvis movies. And, of course, that never happened, and we'll never know what his potential was.


How sad. . .
And to add to this, to find out in reading Ed Parker's book that Colonel Parker deliberately sabotaged efforts by Elvis to do a serious dramatic film in the 70's.

Yes, Laurie. It seems to have happened with "Charro", that was meant to be a good dramatic role and Elvis was very enthusiastic about it, untill he saw that his best parts were cut. (I'm sorry, I remember the fact but don't remember the source. :roll: )

Yes, this is a very "touching" moment, the best in the film to me! :wink:
:P :P

(It's difficult NOT to imagine one is Marlyn under those caressing fingers.)

I love the carefree charming character Elvis plays in The Trouble With Girls.
I just wish there was more of him in it, as he is only in about 1/2 the movie.

With a twinkle in his eye and a warm infectious smile . . .
