I had not read it, but I know Elvis really liked Jack Lord and he said he was "a part of his prayer group"... Maybe it was a personal thing between them and the Lords didn't want to reveal Elvis' "secrets" since he did not himself except to say he knew Jack Lord and he loved his show. I know he watched it faithfully, admired Jack's hair style and color and commented they "could be brothers" both those cool blue eyes and the dark hair and same type body - though Jack I think was a tad taller. wjh

I wonder how often Elvis had this effect with people. I have read other similar type stories. I think it's because Elvis was so "other" centered & not apt to judge that one could not help but feel comfortable with him.

Quote:
'And I haven’t forgotten you either, Marie.'

How very thoughtful to remember the wife behind the TV show star.

Quote:
His eyes were wide again like a kid, and he just couldn’t get over it – as though he, himself, wasn’t the world’s most generous person and as though he hadn’t just given Jack the golden gun and Marie the emerald and diamond ring.

This sure speaks of Elvis' childlike & appreciative nature.
