Elvis: "A Day in the Life"                                                                                                                         January 1, 1970, (Thursday)

Elvis went to the Memphian Theatre every night until he left for Los Angeles. During this period he watched the movie "Patton", starring George C. Scott for the first time. The movie made a very big impression on Elvis, so much so, that he memorised the complete dramatic speech at the beginning of the film, the way he once memorised General MacArthur's "Farewell Address". It was almost certain that this movie prompted him to seek out Omar Bradley, a retired World War II General, and now Beverley Hills neighbour, later this year.

Elvis got some renovations made at Graceland's basement with two rooms and a bathroom added at a cost of around $3.900. They were to be made into an apartment for Charlie Hodge.
