From "Your Weekly Elvis Presley News":

Girls! Girls! Girls! Elvis co-stars stage reunion
Last Updated: Wednesday, July 11, 2007 | 12:05 PM ET

They danced, sang and flirted with him through 31 films and now, most of the actresses that partnered with Elvis Presley on screen will reunite to remember their co-star on the 30th anniversary of his death.

Suzanna Leigh, who appeared opposite the singer in Paradise, Hawaiian Style in 1966, organized the event in Memphis as an opportunity for Elvis fans to meet with two dozen of his onscreen girlfriends.

Elvis Presley, shown here in 1958, appeared in 31 films.
(RCA Victor/ Associated Press) "It's sort of an Elvis reunion. I'm bringing in a lot of co-stars, directors, people who worked with Elvis. It will be magical," said Leigh.

Too bad someone isn't taping this and interviewing a lot of these folks for the rest of us to enjoy so we can hear all the wonderful things they have to say about Elvis. :?

Yes, I hope they all get a chance to say something enlightening and refreshingly true about the guy they all loved, and who also cared for them very much whether they had a romantic relationship with him or not! He would never say a bad word about them publicly, or otherwise.

As far I can remember I never heard about any negative comment about Elvis from any of his co-stars! :D

I remember very nice comments in the past from Ann Margret, Shelley Fabares, Dolores Hart, Donna Douglas and of course Suzanna Leigh!

Sure, all of Elvis's female co-stars loved him, but it's special when a highly regarded actor like Walter Matthau has nice things to say. I've read this a number of times before and wanted to share it as Walter, sadly, would not be there to say it. And this is with 30 years' perspective, not something he said to be nice about his co-star in 1957.


Quote:
“He was an instinctive actor...He was quite bright...he was very intelligent...He was not a punk. He was very elegant, sedate, and refined, and sophisticated.”
Walter Matthau, who co-starred with Elvis in King Creole (1958). From a 1987 interview.
