The Colonel rejected an offer of a South American tour for Elvis.

Around this time, Dewey Phillips came out to Hollywood for a visit, staying in Elvis' Beverly Wilshire suite. While visiting the set he embarrassed Elvis when being introduced to Yul Brynner by declaring; "You're a short little mother, aren't you?". He also kept referring to himself as "Dewey Phillips, Memphis, Tennessee" while out in public.

He then finally caused a serious rift with Elvis when he returned home to Memphis and played an acetate of the as yet unreleased "Teddy Bear" single on air.
