Principal photography continued on "Fun In Acapulco". While filming the performance of the song "Marguerita," Elvis complained

of feeling self-conscious in an untucked, short-sleeved shirt, he explained that he would never wear such clothing in real life.

The outfit could not be changed because a shot of his double leaving the bandstand had already been filmed.

Sometime before filming was completed, Priscilla arrived in Los Angeles with her father, Captain Paul Beaulieu, (photo) to

meet with Elvis and conclude arrangements that permitted her to live in Memphis with Vernon and Dee and enrol in the

Immaculate Conception High School. His father and stepmother would take good care of her, Elvis assured Captain

Beaulieu, and she would get a good education at the Catholic parochial school. (photo dates unknown)

Country and Western music lost three of their own when singers Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins (photos) were killed in a plane crash in Camden, Tennessee. The aircraft's pilot Randy Hughes also lost his life. Ironically they had attempted to fly home from a benefit performance they had finished for the widow of Cactus Jack Call, a DJ who had been killed in an automobile accident a month earlier.

Unbelievably, another Country & Western performer died when Jack Anglin (photo right) of "Johnny and Jack" fame crashed his

car after he had attended the joint services of Cowboy Copas and Randy Hughes, the memorial for Hawkshaw Hawkins and he was later due to go and pay his respects to Patsy Cline.
