In the shooting schedule pages (from beautiful book "Inside JR" - Ger Rijff) there are dates printed, in the left side, and in the right side there are another dates, in pencil. From what i saw, i think the pencil dates are the right ones. For example, Whipping Post Scene 27 - Filmed May 22, 1957 (pencil), but the original date was May 21.
Image

But in Scene Garden Party (Judy Tyler and Elvis, MGM Studios, June 13, 1957), on shooting schedule have the dates: June 17 or June 10/11 (pencil).
Wardrobe photos have the date June 13.
Image

About the Jailhouse Rock sequence, we have the May 14 date in shooting schedule, but in Last Train To Memphis the date is May 13: "Principal shooting started the following Monday, May 13, and began with the dance sequence that Alex Romero had worked on with Elvis the previous week. The set was a skeletal scaffolding with barred doors suggesting cells on two levels. There was a fireman’s pole for the inmates on the upper level to slide down, and a cast of professional dancers was outlined in silhouette behind bars at the start of the number. "
What is the real date?
Image

I'm affraid i'm a little (more) confuse about shooting schedule pages, what are the correct dates? The ones in pencil? And, in some schedule pages there are two pencil dates for the same scene, this means the scene was filmed in two days?
(sorry for my english...)

'GIFT RAPT' HOLLYWOOD :
A dream comes true for polio patients Beth Currier (left) 14, and Elaine Brockway, 18, as they met Elvis Presley in Hollywood. Elaine, Paralyzed from the neck down, was taken from the Sister Kenny Memorial Hospital in El Monte, California to present Presley with a scrapbook she made despite her handicaps. Beth, confined to a wheelchair, gave the rock 'n' roll star a pair of good luck toy poodles made of yarn, as a gift for the start of his new film, "Jailhouse Rock."

Beth, 14, now confined to a wheelchair, presents Presley with a scrapbook, made mostly using her mouth. Elaine, 18, is paralyzed from the neck down.


Elvis Day By Day : Elvis wrote a note to the staff of the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital: "Dear Friends, I want you to know how very much I appreciate your very wonderful treatment while I was there. When I went in I was all shook up but I left loving you. Thanks a million. My best to all. Sincerely, Elvis Presley."

Some years ago I bought a collection of 120 shorthand notes (and a shooting schedule) made by Trude Forsher Elvis secretary while he was making Jailhouse Rock.
Two of the notes I have scanned for you mention Hospital and found in lungs

Did you get these from her son, James Forsher?

I once went to his (former) Berkeley house on business and got to review tons of items in his collection, all from his mom's years working for Presley management. He had a screenplay he was trying to develop about his mom's Elvis story, from his perspective as a kid.

One of the highlights in Forsher's collection was seeing some of the phone messages for Elvis Trude took when he was at Paramount in early 1958 for "King Creole," including a couple from Sammy Davis, Jr.

Do I have any Sun acetates....mmm let me see?
....the nearest (and the longest!) to any Sun record that early would be my "pen" that Jim Curtin sold in his auction...(what the "F" I here you say!)
it was used by Elvis to signe two Sun "sample" records (45 and 78)
Does that count Doc?

(guess not!... but was worth a try)

(...I was in the Hilton around that time so not far from them does that cou..........never mind)

sorry to go off topic Davide.....just a bit a fun. I can scan the promo print plates for you if you want.

I don’t know the date, but the names oft he persons:

From left to the right: Dennis Hallett, Elvis, Tom Brown and Godfrey Kerr, all friends of Mickey Shaughnessy’s son


Mississippi





Well, the date likely goes to 5-21-1957 (Tue) at MGM, based on his clothing, and how his hair falls across his forehead, in the photo.

But I'm curious about the names of the teen-agers seen with him. Online many identify these boys as Texas rockabilly artist Mac Curtis and two band mates, Jim and Ken Galbraith. But they don't actually look like them.

And they cannot be friends of co-star Mickey Shaughnessy's son, Michael. His firstborn was a one year-old baby in 1957.

Moving Family
Hollywood, Cal. -- With "Jailhouse Rock" as his fourth Hollywood picture in a matter of months, Mickey Shaughnessy has decided to move his wife and young baby from New York to Hollywood.

Baltimore Evening Sun - Wednesday, June 5, 1957

So where did those names come from?
