When I was a child I was a dreamer,
I read comic books and I was the hero of the comic book
And I saw movies and I was the hero in the movie
So every dream I´ve ever dreamed has come true a hundred times.

According to Elisabeth Stefaniak (who was Elvis' secretary from Dec'58 - March '60) Janie Wilbanks stayed at Grunewald during Christmas 1958.

David, your posts are an absolute joy. Thank you for your latest!

Thoughts:

1) There was never a cooler US Army soldier than Presley.
2) Elvis handled the press, as usual, with aplomb.
3) Emotionally, the past 5 weeks had been some of the very worst of his life (Gladys died on August 14).
4) The complete Elvis Sails EP may be found here, on one of FTD's greatest-ever collections:

A new one from the same date - Elvis looks to be surrounded by RCA Victor management, and possibly representives from the William Morris Agency plus Colonel Parker,and his staff.

Stunning as always, Davide, thank you.

I'd forgotten that Wertheimeer was present at the "birth" and the "death" of the Elvis rock 'n' roll years.

Lucky guy ... great photographer ...
