This was the date of Elvis' new agreement with Colonel Parker, which for the first time explicitly recognised that they are engaged in what amounts to a partnership, or joint venture. According to the terms of this contract, Colonel Parker continued to collect a 25 percent commission on all of Elvis' movie salaries and contractually guaranteed record company advances, but the Colonel now received 50 percent of any profits or royalties beyond basic payments from the film and record contracts, as well as 50 percent of all "special," or side, deals.

Just how popular horseback riding became with Elvis and the gang was evidenced by the fact that they only rented out the Memphian for movies four times this month. Almost everything now revolved around horses: buying them, riding them, purchasing equipment for both the horses and their riders.

The Colonel renegotiated Elvis' contract with RCA through 1974, with an extension to run through 1980. The annual guarantee (a non-refundable advance against royalties) remained at $300,000 per year through 1970 but would be reduced to $200,000 per year for the five years after that and then pay no advance at all other than a $50,000 payment to both Elvis and the Colonel on or before January 1, 1976. It probably should be noted that this reduction of guaranteed payments worked to the Colonel's advantage, in that his 50-50 deal kicked in sooner according to the terms of his new agreement with Elvis. In the wake of the RCA extension Elvis sent the Colonel a telegram: "Dear Colonel. The greatest snowman on earth has caused another storm. Looking forward to another great forecast from you. Respectfully, Elvis"
