No comments for over 13 years! Well, not for long!
I was never a massive fan of Elvis and haven't seen any of his films. I like the odd song of his though, all of which were re-released when he died on the 16th August, 1977. I still remember the day. I was awaiting my 'O' Level results. Noel Edmonds was playing Elvis records one after the other, which I couldn't work out until it was announced on the radio news, "THE KING IS DEAD!"
Tributes flooded in and I started reading about him and thinking that he sounded a right good laugh! Definitely someone I'd have enjoyed knowing. What I found particularly amusing was that if he didn't like a TV programme, a champagne bottle would be lobbed through the set! Or did he shoot them on occasion?
But he could afford it....
As Glenda acted with Elvis, that's enough to make her instantly memorable to many. At 5ft3, she'll have looked tiny in comparison to the 6ft Rock 'n' Roller!

Glenda's career goes back to the 30s. Her best known work was as a fast taking, saucy dame in various Warner Brothers movies, particularly the Torchy Blane mystery series where she played a newspaperwoman. I have no first hand knowledge of her height but she definitely appeared to be on the petite side with costars Barton MacLane (maybe a 6 footer in his youth) and Tom Kennedy (over 6 foot) being substantially taller than her on screen.
