Graceland, 3764 Highway 51 South, Memphis, Tennessee?

 

 

Shortly after his return to Memphis, Elvis bought Priscilla a red Corvair so that she could drive herself to school

instead of being chauffeured every day by Vernon.

Chenault’s Restaurant, 1400 South Bellevue, Memphis, Tennessee.

 

Elvis was spotted with Priscilla in the Chenault's parking lot by a Memphis Press-Scimitar reporter. He told the reporter

that Priscilla was the daughter of an army officer who "sent her ahead because she wanted to graduate on time." Her

family, he suggested, was not far behind and was, as had already been reported in the Commercial Appeal, friendly with

his family in Germany. On the subject of movies he told the reporter that he had seen both "Lawrence of Arabia" and "To

Kill a Mockingbird" since he returned home and expected the former would win an Oscar "because more money was spent on it, but I think Mockingbird was really better-that's a wonderful movie."

On this and at least five other days in the next two weeks Elvis purchased a total of $1,388.69 worth of women's clothing at Laclede's on Union Avenue in Memphis.

"One Broken Heart for Sale" was still number one in Hong Kong.

 

The charts still had a strong R&B and C&W presence, but the pop chart now reflected how popular folk and surf music had become. All female groups were starting to emerge by creating the "Wall of Sound" inspired through it's producer Phil Spector. There was still a place for the teen idol, but "Rock n' Roll" as a whole, had become more "sanitised" over the last three years.

From his office on Graceland's grounds Vernon took care of all of Elvis' financial concerns and oversaw the running and maintenance of the estate. Eighteen trees were planted on the grounds today. In Elvis' absence Vernon had new front and back porches constructed, heavy burglarproof window screens installed, and the house painted. The work was undertaken by Vernon and Gladys' friend Carl Nichols, who accompanied the Presley's in 1957 to Hollywood with his wife during the filming of "Loving You".
