1966 continued the trend of previous years: three Hollywood movies plus their soundtracks. No live performances, no major chart success. One shining light was the gospel recordings in May which proved that Elvis could cut it when given strong material. Motown acts like The Supremes and The Temptations charted well with the Beatles continuing to dominate proceedings. At the end of the year Elvis finally proposed to Priscilla. On a sadder note, animation and theme park mogul Walt Disney died.
