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.
