On Elvis Presley Renting His Hollywood Beach Home: I worked with Elvis a bit on ‘Jailhouse Rock,’ and got to know him as well as anybody in Los Angeles at the time.
I had a beach house that I sublet to him while I was doing ‘Peyton Place.’ He needed the place as a getaway, and basically wrote me a check for that month’s rent. I wish I had kept
the check, that would be worth more than the money I got.
When I came back, there was an eviction notice on the door due to the neighbours making complaints after Elvis had been throwing parties every weekend. This was my welcome
home from Elvis. (EER Adds: ?????????)
