Priscilla and several of the wives and girlfriends left Memphis to travel to Sedona. On the set Elvis told a reporter from Cosmopolitan magazine that he still had a lot to learn about acting. Much of his progress, he said, comes from just "hanging out with real good professionals, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't pick up on something from the other actors."
