ELVIS
The Man and His Music

Program 8 Reprise -  In wrapping up show number 8 Jerry features the story behind the Elvis Wedding to Priscilla Beaulieu who he met at a party at his house in Germany while in the Army- He was 24 and she was 14.  On May 1, 1967 Elvis married her in the suite of a Las Vegas Casino owner who had known Col. Tom Parker for over 20 years. The marriage was only one of several changes Elvis was making by the late 60s. His music was now leaning toward country flavored crossovers in content and he was becoming a family man. The Memphis Mafia would disband and Elvis had decided to stop making movies and do something more creative including an up coming TV special and a Las Vegas Stage Star.
