The Colonel, embarrassed and frustrated by Elvis' continuing delays, had managed to get a second postponement from United Artists, and Elvis was informed that he was expected to appear without fail on Monday, March 6.

 

Back on the ranch Elvis continued his spending spree, as he purchased a Ford pickup, a Ranger, and eleven Rancheros, as well as another mobile home.

Elvis finally boarded the plane for California with Charlie Hodge, Ray Sitton, Marty Lacker, Red West, Billy Smith, and Larry Geller, as well as a new addition to the group, Marvin "Gee Gee" Gambill, (photo) who was married to Elvis' cousin Patsy. Alan Fortas remained at the ranch as foreman, nominally in charge of maintenance and livestock.

The Colonel was hard at work trying to encourage M.G.M. to come up with a good hard-hitting story for Elvis' next picture. He wanted to do away, he said, with the same old scenarios focusing on girls in bikinis and nightclub scenes "which have been in the last fifteen pictures.... I sincerely hope that you are looking in some crystal ball with your people to come up with some good, strong, rugged stories."
