RARE AND PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED PHOTOGRAPHS

INTRODUCTION
Born on 8 January 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis was one of a set of twins born to Vernon Elvis Presley and Gladys Love Presley. From the very begin-ning, Elvis Aron Presley was a survivor: his brother, Jesse Garon Presley, died six hours after birth. As a boy, Elvis enjoyed singing in the East Heights Assembly of God Church. He first performed publicly while in fifth grade, singing 'Old Shep' on WELO radio, as a reward for taking second place in a talent contest. The family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where Elvis attended OC Hume High School. While driving a truck for the Crown Electric Company, Elvis stopped by Sun Records Memphis Recording Services, where he paid four dollars to record two songs—'My Happi-ness' and That's When Your Heartache Begins.' He returned there in January 1954 to record 'Casual Love Affair' and I'll Never Stand in Your Way.' This time, Sam Phillips, the head of Sun Records, liked what he heard, and a legendary singing career began. His recordings mounted up, and he became a regional phenomenon, then a national and an inter-national phenomenon.

After television appearances on the Dorsey brothers Stage Show and the Milton Berle Show, Elvis signed a contract with Hal Wallis of Para-mount Pictures to star in three motion pictures. Elvis was to make further television appearances on the Steve Allen, Jackie Gleason and Ed Sullivan variety shows. Among his early hit songs were 'Mystery Train' (1954) and That's MI Right, Mama' (1954) (both with Sun Records); 'I Gota Woman,"Money, Honey,"Heart-break Hotel,' Lawdy Miss Clawdy,"Shake, Rattle and Roll,"Tutti Frutti' and 'Blue Suede Shoes' (all January of 1956, with RCA Records); lailhouse Rock,' All Shook Up,' Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear' and Too Much' (all 1957, with RCA); plus RCA renditions of 'All Shook Up' and 'It's Now or Never.'

In fact, Elvis recorded three dozen tracks in late 1956, many of which were released during his two-year tour of duty with the US Army at the end of the decade. These included love Me Tender,' Don't Be Cruel,' `Ready Teddy,' Rip It Up,' Long Tall Sally' and his greatest hit ever: 'You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog.' His acting future lay in motion pictures, however, and sine Paramount had no immediate project for Elvis, Hal Wallis arranged a deal with the Twentieth Century-Fox studios, and thereafter handled many of Elvis' movie deals.' Elvis' first film for Fox was to be Love Me Tender, co-starring Richard Egan and Deborah Paget. Released on 16 November 1956, it was a smash hit. Through the years, he would star in 30 motion pictures, among which were Loving You (Paramount, 1957); Jailhouse Rock (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1957); King Creole (Para-mount, 1958); GI Blues (Paramount, 1960); Flaming Star (Twentieth Century-Fox, 1960); Wild in the Country (Twentieth Century-Fox, 1961); Blue Hawaii (Para-mount, 1961); Follow That Dream (United Artists, 1962); Kid Galahad (United Artists, 1962); Girls! Girls! Girls! (Paramount, 1962); It Happened at the World's Fair (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1962); Fun in Acapulco (Hal Wallis Productions, 1962); Kissin' Cousins (Metro-Gold-wyn-Mayer, 1964); Viva Las Vegas (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1964); Paradise, Hawaiian Style (Paramount, 1966); Spinout (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1966); Easy Come, Easy Go (Paramount,1967); Double Trouble (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1967); Clambake (United Artists, 1967); Stay Away, Joe (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Speedway (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Live a Little, Love a Little (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Charro! (National General Productions, Inc, 1969); and The Trouble With Girls (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Decem-ber 1969); Change of Habit (NBC-Universal, January 1970).

There were also documentaries such as Elvis: That's the Way It Is (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1970) and Elvis on Tour (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1972), plus a number of television specials, including Aloha From Hawaii (1973). With the revival of his live performance career in 1968, Elvis again began turning out the hit records, as is discussed later in this book. When he died in 1977, Elvis Presley was 42, and yet had lived a life that would require most men several full lifetimes to live. In his worldwide community of fans, he lives on.

Facing page: Elvis Aron Presley had an impoverished childhood that was rich in his paren& love. When he died a wealthy man on 16 August 1977, the world lost one of its greatest entertainers.
