Description: A collection of 100 black and white photographs with text and captions by Steve Pond. On 1 April 1956 Elvis Presley, 21 years old, came to Hollywood. When Love Me Tender , his first movie, was released in November of that year, screaming fans mobbed the theatres. Now, over 30 years later, a collection of negatives have been unearthed at the Michael Ochs archives in California. Taken during the filming of Love Me Tender , these photographs show Elvis as we like to remember him - the bad boy of 50s rock and roll. These were the days before Hollywood had exploited him as a screen commodity, the days when, for Elvis, everything seemed possible. At the end of the book a short list of all Elvis' movies is given. No references.
