Elvis’ Former Lover Opened Up About Their Long-Lasting Relationship (msn.com)

When most people think of Elvis Presley, there are a few things that come to mind: groundbreaking rock ‘n roll music, infamous hip gyrations, a mischievous lip curl, and his beautiful wife, Priscilla. However, people who lived through Elvis’ reign may recall another lovely lady in the King’s life. Ann-Margret was not only Elvis’ co-star but was also his lover at one point. Their relationship complicated things with Priscilla. Read on to see how the pair fared in those early days, and why they ultimately fell apart.

Her Voice Was Compared To That Of Elvis

Ann-Margret, a Swedish actress, emerged in Hollywood in the late 1950s. As a singer, her voice was recognized for its similarity to Elvis. Since their vocal qualities were comparable, it’s no surprise the pair was bound to work together eventually.

Some even referred to Ann-Margret as the female version of Elvis. Shortly after her rise to stardom, she began working with Elvis’ backup singers, The Jordanaires. Ann-Margret’s popularity further blossomed when she covered his famous song, “Heartbreak Hotel.”

They Met On The Set Of Viva Las Vegas

Elvis and Ann-Margret met while filming the 1963 hit Viva Las Vegas. Despite only being 28-years-old, Elvis had already been in 14 movies up to that point. Ann-Margret, on the other hand, was a rising star, most notably recognized for her starring role in Bye Bye Birdie.

Ann-Margret was just 22-years-old at the time she met the king of rock ‘n roll. She recalled the moment in her autobiography decades later. They met at an empty soundstage that held only a piano.

They Said The Same Thing At The Same Time

When the pair met, they were introduced by director George Sidney. It was like a moment out of a movie as Ann-Margret reached out her hand to shake Elvis’. In her book, she described his shake as being “gentle.”

Then in unison, both Ann-Margret and Elvis exclaimed, “I’ve heard a lot about you.” She wrote that the coincidence made them both chuckle and relax. It was a perfect ice breaker and showed how much the two were already alike.

She Was Surprisingly Calm

Ann-Margret admitted in her book that she was surprisingly at ease when she met Elvis. Being that he was one of the biggest stars of the time, you would think that she would be nervous.

She wrote, “I’m not really sure why I was so calm about meeting ‘the King.’ After all, this was Elvis – a man who had captured the heart of almost every woman in America. Little did I know he would soon capture mine.”

Gone With The Rose

When David Pressly was born on January 12, 1764, in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, his father, David, was 34 and his mother, Esther, was 33. He immigrated to America c.1767 arriving in Charleston, South Carolina[1] and in the autumn of 1776, volunteered as a Patriot from Ninety-Six District, South Carolina, USA (Yes, he was really about 12 years old!).[2] David married Ann Edmiston (1763–1848) on November 16, 1784, in Abbeville, South Carolina. Their known children are:

The Greatest Movie Never Made is…….GONE WITH THE ROSE!

Starring….Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and, Elvis Presley.

Synopsis: Private Jimmy Rosamond Purvis of the Pennsylvania Union Rifles, volunteers to be a Union Spy and spy on the Confederacy in South Carolina. Taking a bullet to the shoulder, he is caught hiding in a barn located on the Rosemont Plantation by Rosalynd Louisiana Rosemont, a Southern Belle if there ever was one. It is love at first sight. Rosalynd nurses Jimmy back to health. She shows him a photograph of her brother who was killed in a battle with General Sherman.

“That’s my aunt Polly. She went to a family reunion of our Pressley kin, and never came home! Shouts Jimmy!

“Are you lying to me, Jimmy? Are you saying we are cousins?”

When Jimmy confesses, he is a Union Spy, they are both torn down the middle. Where do, or should, their family loyalty, lie. Jimmy writes Rosalynd a poem.

“Jimmy. Tell me the truth. Did you plagiarize this poem – from Shakespeare?”

“Kind of. You see, I’m kin to Shakespeare through my Webb kinfolk! It’s – in my genes!”

“Oh my God! General Webb is riding here now to see my father. You got to hide. If he spots you he’s going to want to do your family tree, because – you look just like my brother, William!”

If this movie was made in 1962, and, Elvis sang four Southern-like songs, it would have been the biggest hit – of all time! Every drive-in would be filled.

Love me forever
my tender rose
never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
and I love you so.

Love me tender,
love me true,
all my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin’ I love you,
and I always will.

Love me tender,
love me long,
take me to your heart.
For it’s there that I belong,
and we’ll never part.

Love me tender,
love me dear,
tell me you are mine.
I’ll be yours through all the years,
till the end of time.

(When at last my dreams come true
Darling this I know
Happiness will follow you
Everywhere you go).

An American man who was captured and held by Russian forces in Ukraine has said Russian authorities acted as if they believed he was “007” during his detention.

Tyler Jacob, a 28-year-old who had been teaching English in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, told CNN‘s Don Lemon on Tuesday that the Russians believe in the “myth” of fictional British spy James Bond and suspected Jacob was using English teaching as a cover story.

Jacob was taken off a bus by Russian soldiers in Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014, and was detained at a jail in the city of Simferopol where he was questioned. His phone, laptop and tablet were also searched.
