|FROM ELVIS, JIM MORRISON TO LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE
April 26, 2017 - Fox News / Elvis Express Rdio
Charlotte Stewart is best known for portraying Miss Beadle on “Little House on the Prairie."
The now 76-year-old actress revealed, back in 1968, Stewart would also become a confidant to one of the greatest music icons of the 20th Century: The King. She briefly appeared
in the M.G.M film “Speedway” opposite Elvis Presley, which sparked a brief friendship.
“As soon as we were done with the first shot, he said, ‘You wanna talk?’ I was shocked. He pulled up two chairs together, we sat down, he took my hand and then he began to tell
me about his mother,” revealed Stewart. “He talked about Gladys, how much he missed her, how when he was in the army, they wouldn’t let him go see her when she was dying… It
wasn’t like he was flirting. He was just being very sweet. He could not have been nicer.”
But Elvis was not the only music icon that she would get to know.
Charlotte became a drinking buddy and a friend with benefits of Doors frontman, Jim Morrison.
Back before Stewart found fame with the western drama, which ran from 1974 to 1983, she owned a clothing store called The Liquid Butterfly, which was located across from Elektra
Records in California, the label that the rock band was signed under. In her recently published memoir, titled “Little House in the Hollywood Hills,” she recalled how Morrison
frequently spent time at her store where they became fast friends.
