Elvis returned to Hollywood and reported for preproduction on "It Happened at the World's Fair", the first movie in his new

four-picture deal with MGM. MGM producer Ted Richmond conscientiously pursued the same formula as Hal Wallis and

selected a colourful location (the Seattle World's Fair) and even employed Elvis' favourite director, Norman Taurog.

The Colonel renegotiated amendments to an RCA contract that had already been substantially upgraded in January. In two special deals, which by definition were Split 50-50 between Elvis and the Colonel, the two principals will have their extra non-recoupable 1 percent royalty on all domestic sales increased to 2 percent (above the regular recoupable 5 percent). In addition, RCA would now make a special bonus payment of $100,000 per year for three years, also not to be charged against royalties. Beginning in 1965, the bonus payment would be reduced to $ 75,000 per year. The contract period was extended to December 31, 1969, with an option for two additional years.

Elvis reported for wardrobe duty.

In a lengthy interview with Lloyd Shearer on the set some time over the next few weeks, Elvis spoke of the friends with whom he had chosen to associate, saying that it's "important to surround yourself with people who can give you a little happiness." He also spoke of his interest in studying philosophy and mentioned that he would have liked to become a doctor and often read medical texts. He said that he was hesitant to make any major changes in his career ("If I can entertain people with things I'm doing well, I'd be a fool to tamper with it"), but at the same time expressed an interest in exploring new directions.
