ELVIS 1960 - SEVEN DAYS IN MARCH A NEW BOOK FROM PAUL BELARD
March 1960, almost 2 years before, Elvis was drafted. At the peak of his professional career, he faced two uncertain years. Would it be over? Would the fans still be there when he came back? The doubts were etched on his face, in the days of March 1958. His easy smiles were now forced. They would disappear for a long while after his beloved mother's untimely death in August 1958.
However, in the days of March 1960, his smiles could not have been more genuine. His army days over amidst a flurry of press conferences attended by more reporters than would have covered a presidential address. Frank Sinatra, who came close to calling him a blabbering idiot a few years before ate crow and dug deep in his pockets to have him on the show. Contracts for several movies were already signed.
A photo record of Elvis' journey through 7 days in March 1960 over more than 190 pages. ELVIS 1960 - SEVEN DAYS IN MARCH (Limited First Print Run of Just 50 copies individually hand numbered by the author) by Paul Belard
