From Elvis Australia:

http://photos.elvispresley.com.au/the_e ... s/4/6.html


"For her role as Elvis Presley's Navajo Indian step-mother, Katy Jurado did what few leading ladies would dream of doing. She ate constantly in an effort to add a pound a day to her frame. Twenty-two days and twenty-two pounds later, she arrived in Sedona, Arizona to begin her role. Why the added poundage?
Miss Jurado gave her explanation: “Reservation In-dians are warm, wonderful people. But they do not look like Zsa Zsa Gabor'. Indeed, so eager was the two-time Oscar-nominated, Mexican-born actress to appear with Elvis Presley that she neglected to inform either producer Douglas Laurence or director Peter Tewksbury that she had broken some bones in her foot in an accident a few days before filming was to begin.
Instead, she prematurely removed the cast surround-ing the foot and explained the limp as being part of her characterization as Presley's spitfire Navajo In-dian stepmother. And Miss Jurado got away with it!"

Quite determinated, was not she? 8) :lol: I always liked that woman and now I understand better why. :wink:

Me too! She played the role perfectly and the scenes with Elvis were very realistic and true to role. that is one of Jimmie's favorite movies of Elvis'...he always laughs
and enjoys the fun and games going on. Elvis looked great, felt good and it was
a fun set from all appearances! I recall her in other roles and enjoyed them too,
she was always the dark skinned and dark eyed beauty and looked the part. She
made some western films also. Jimmie liked the 'grandfather' guy and got a laugh out of his role and the way he played it to the hilt.
Thanks for posting about Katy-

it would be great to have a book made of all those people who had worked with Elvis in films, I bet there are some super funny and also amazing stories out there!
So many of his film mates got to know him well, and most everyone who have talked about it, liked him, thought he was a gentleman and respectful and that they loved being around him, hearing his thoughts and laughing with him. And at him- he loved making people laugh.

It exist a book of Elvis' movies: Frame by Frame from Bill Bram. The book includes a lot of people who worked with Elvis in the movies and they talk about how it was to meet and to work with him. It's a great book.
