Loved this Ty! Also loved the fact that I could share it on FB! TYVM! Your pics are great …..can agree with all of them! Especially loved your pic of Elvis as best actor in ‘Change of Habit’!! Totally agree! TYVM!
Thanks, Clementine. The best part of this whole post for me was that researching for it made me find out that Herb Solow, a producer of Star Trek, my all-time favorite television series, also produced my all-time favorite Elvis film, That’s The Way It Is. I had no idea!
