Here is the link to another article about the movie which is being produced about Jimmy Ellis who was ORION the singer. This article also gives a link and some details about how one may go about contributing to the fund to allow the film to be completed and released for those who are interested.
The two photos below were shared with me by a good friend and they have become two of my favorites and so I want to share them here.

In her new book, “100 Things Elvis Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die,” music journalist and author Gillian Gaar takes on the task of distilling Elvis Presley‘s career into 100 key elements. Students of the King of Rock and Roll can view this as a type of “CliffsNotes” to the life and times of Elvis.
The book, which comes out April 1, lists 100 facts and trivia about The King ranked in order of importance relating to Elvis’ songs, albums, movies, career achievements, relationships and significant places in Elvis’ life. “100 Things” is intended as a guide to the essential facts you need to know to be an informed Elvis fan. Gaar has also included sidebars of information featuring lesser-known trivia like when Presley was actually nicknamed “The King of Rock and Roll” and the true intended spelling of his middle name.
Gaar, who is the author of two other books on Presley and one on The Beatles, recently did an email interview with The Elvis Presley Examiner discussing her motivation to write the book. She also shares her view on how Beatles fans view Elvis and how she feels “100 Things” will fit into the vast array of Elvis Presley literature.
Question: Your publisher, Triumph Books, specializes in sports books and has published similar themed books, like “100 Things Jets Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die” and “100 Things Celtics Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die.” How did you team up with them to do “100 Things Elvis Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die” as well as your previous book “100 Things Beatles Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die“?
Gillian Gaar: A woman who worked for them had previously worked at Goldmine Magazine, and she knew that I knew a lot about the Beatles and Elvis (I used to have Beatles and Elvis columns at the magazine). So she put them in touch with me, which was nice.
Question: In the book, you explain that you were a Beatles fan first before you discovered Elvis. As a fan of both myself, I find that many Beatles fans aren’t really that interested in Elvis. Has that been your experience, and if so, why do you think that is?
Gaar: I think it works the other way too; many Elvis fans I’ve known aren’t that interested in the Beatles. Maybe some of it’s generational. I also think the interest in Elvis is more centered on his mythic persona. Whereas with the Beatles, there’s more focus on how they created their music, because they wrote most of their music, and Elvis didn’t. And I think Elvis felt threatened by the Beatles, and maybe this feeling is reflected in some of his fans.
Question: Can you give us some background on your music journalism career including your work for Goldmine Magazine?
Gaar: I started out at a music paper in Seattle called The Rocket, and kept plugging away over the years and gradually began writing for other magazines including Goldmine. An article in The Rocket led to my first book, “She’s A Rebel: The History of Women in Rock & Roll.” I’ve since written about Elvis, Green Day, The Beatles, and Nirvana (I also have an ebook out now, “Smells Like Teen Spirit: The Alterna Teen Anthem of the ‘90s”).
Question: How did you come to write your two other books on Elvis: “Return of the King: Elvis Presley’s Great Comeback” and “Elvis Remembered 1935-77“?
Gaar: With “Return,” I’d read a book on David Bowie that focused on his Berlin years. So I contacted the publisher and said I’d like to do a book covering Elvis’ 68-70 period, same concept as the Bowie book. They agreed and I think it came out really well. As for “Elvis Remembered,” I’d done a previous book on Nirvana for that publisher, and found out they were doing one on Elvis, so I asked if I could write that one.
Question: When you started to write the book, who was your intended audience? When you say “Elvis fan”, do you mean a hardcore Elvis fan or a new Elvis fan, or both?
Gaar: I’m not really sure. I think of it more as a trivia book. If you don’t know a lot about Elvis, this would give you a good grounding in the basics. And I would hope it’s something a hardcore fan might find enjoyable to read, as when I’ve read guide-to-the-music-of type books about an artist, like “The Rough Guide to the Beatles”; I didn’t learn anything, but I like reading about the Beatles and it was fun reading it.
Question: Was there anything that you learned about Elvis while doing your research that really surprised you?
Gaar: I didn’t learn too much as I already knew most of this stuff. I did track down when Elvis began being referred to as “the King.” And also learning more about the origins of the Candlelight Vigil.
Question: In item #84, you address “The Best of the Rest of Elvis’ Movies.” What made you want to bring attention to many Elvis’ movies that are usually overlooked?
Gaar: Most of the footage we have of Elvis is from his movies, so a fan would obviously want to see all of them. The bigger movies (like “Jailhouse Rock”) got their own entries, but I didn’t want to leave any of the films out. There’s at least one fun moment in most of them.
Question: From my count, I found only 6 items on the list that were things “To Do.” Were there things you had to cut out since you were limited to a list of 100?
Gaar: I was thinking that in writing about a record or film, the person reading it would then want to listen to/watch the record/film, which is something to “do,” and I guess I should’ve pointed that out more clearly!
Question: Can you give us some information on your new Elvis book coming out May 8, 2014 called “Elvis The King: Authorized Book from the Graceland Archives“? Is this a reprint of the book, “Elvis Remembered 1935-1977”?
Gaar: As far I know, it’s just a reprint of the earlier book, in different packaging.
Question: How do you see your book fitting into the vast array of published books on Elvis Presley?
Gaar: No idea! Hopefully after reading it, it will motivate people who didn’t know a lot about Elvis to seek out his music and films.
Dutch brewing company Bavaria has launched a new commercial featuring the likenesses of the late John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee and Tupac Shakur. The ad for fruit-flavored Radler beer presents the icons on a tropical beach when they are alerted to a ship on the horizon, prompting the legends to keep their secret location alive by hiding from the ship’s preying eyes. Founded in 1719, Bavaria is a Dutch brewery located in the south of the Netherlands. There’s no word on whether the estates of the late legends granted permission for the likenesses to be used.
Here is the actual commercial:

But what’s the real story? This Bavaria Radler commercial makes it clear once and for all.”ALL RIGHTS TO BAVARIA RADLER BEER!

I will provide this link for anyone interested in checking out some of the movies which I have referenced in my pages. This is a very nice display which shows the color displays for each of the movies. I have seen quite a few…but there are many which I have not seen. I see Elvis flavored topics and former friends in some of those which I have not yet viewed. See what you think.

Some films listed were only distributed by Orion.
Many were co-productions.
1979 – 1999

Below are two photos of a gorgeous car driving up the Graceland driveway and parked in front of Graceland. These photos are of interest to Tom and me because the car belongs to Tom’s cousin and her husband (she says it’s HIS car though). The reason that they were able to drive the car up the driveway and park it for a photo op right in front of Graceland is because their car won Best In Show at the Elvis Car Show. We see them very seldom and did not know about this until Tom saw it on her Facebook page. I was in awe of their car at our Sigmon family reunion last October. We are very happy for them. The car is even more special for sentimental reasons. Her husband and her father (who passed away about 2 years ago) restored the Buick over a period of several years.
Just ’cause this is so.o.o.o.o cute and appropriate for my web site.

A recent article which I shared included some of the facts about Howard Hughes and Elvis which further substantiated the facts which Jesse shared in his book. Jesse wrote in his book that Mr. Hughes was one of the people who helped him to pull off his “retirement” on August 16, 1977.
Ron wrote to me about a statement which Ed Parker made in his book.
… on page 72, he writes, “Before Elvis purchased his own jet aircraft, he periodically leased them from other airline companies. Alleghany, Ozark and Hughes’ Air West (Elvis always called their yellow jets, “screaming canaries”) were the principal aircraft leasing companies that he used.” Again it was published in 1978. One year after August 16, 1977. Ed mentioned Howard Hughes and Hughes’ Air West.
Below is a copy of this quote from Ed Parker’s book:
Also, another good friend, BlueRose shared the following collage of images which “coincidentally” shows images of Howard Hughes, Elvis, his father Vernon, Dr. Nic and the Hughes Airwest planes.
BlueRose writes: “there are no coincidences….”
I shall try to add these two newest entries regarding Elvis and Howard Hughes onto my page devoted to this topic. Here is the link to that page: http://lindahoodsigmontruth.com/elvisjesse-and-howard-hughes/
I extend my heartfelt thanks to Ron and BlueRose for their invaluable contribution this time and in times past.

“Truth has no fear.”
~ A.D. Williams
I came across the below YouTube video which I have never seen before and for the most part it is very good. It contains excerpts from an A&E documentary about Elvis’ 1970 visit with President Richard Nixon. This portion of the video is very good. The creator of the video did get off track though by playing the song “Where The Eagle Flies” which is by an unknown singer…been so nice had they played Elvis’ singing “America“. Also, as I have proven on my site earlier, the gentleman in the black suit is a man who performed as *“Fabulous Fonzerelli”…I am sorry that his real name does not come to mind though I have shown articles about this man previously. I am sharing this video because of the A & E content. As you will see, the person who owns this video certainly does have the right idea.
*footnote: My good friend, Lucilia, refreshed my memory of the actual name of the man in the black suit whose stage name was “Fabulous Fonzerelli”. This gentleman’s actual named was Alfonse Monteon Armendarez. Mr. Armendarez passed away several years ago.
My thanks to Lucilia for helping me to furnish this information.

This video is a collection of film clips covering Elvis’ time in the Army beginning in March, 1958. Old folks like me do remember when that happened. LOL
I am including this on my DVD to Jesse this week because I think he will enjoy going back and listening to the interviews of others who were there with him. I apologize that it does contain some very sad material from August, 1958.
Also, I do NOT enjoy the last few minutes…beginning after the 1968 special and onward. From there on the narrator knows not the truth behind that of which he speaks. Elvis DID NOT drink. It aggravates me no end every time I hear some one parroting those ignorant words. People, in general, do not have a clue of what Elvis was going through…it was a horrible time for him with troubles more than anyone can even imagine. I don’t know how he continued to perform under the strain that he was under. He told me that the last two years of his life as Elvis were pure misery. Very few individuals would have the intestinal fortitude to even get up and do all the things he had to do day in and day out. I have the utmost respect for the man, the image too, but more so for the man. He will always be my hero.

Jesse called me tonight and we had a wonderful visit. He is doing very well. We had lots to talk about and I enjoyed his call so very much, as is always the case. Jesse brought up several topics…things that those who were with him way back then would recognize. He wondered if anyone said anything about the ring which he sent to Tom recently…the one that Kang Rhee gave him. I told him that only a few people mentioned how nice it was. He thought perhaps someone from back then would have recognized it and made some comment.
Jesse brought up Marty Lacker’s name in our conversation. Jesse asked me if I knew why Marty had been so mean to someone else (who he named) and I said only that Marty is not a nice person to a number of people…that he is a nasty man. Jesse told me the inside story about how his association with Marty ended back long before August 16, 1977. How many of you know that Marty was banned from Elvis’ sight because of something which Marty said and did regarding one of Elvis’ albums. Elvis said that he never wanted to see Marty again…did not want him in his presence ever again. Elvis paid many thousands of dollars to Marty to part company with him. Elvis actually sent the money to Marty’s wife so he could know that she would have it…if I understood correctly. This explains why Marty was in CA on August 16, 1977 when he learned of Elvis’ “death“. This also explains why Marty did not come to Memphis when Elvis “died” and why he did not attend the funeral.
Those who have been with my web site since the early days…around Christmastime in 2010, will recall when Marty came storming onto my site and posted very harsh and vicious statements to me and against me and against Jesse. He lied saying “I was there when he died.” Well, thanks to several of my friends I was able to show proof from his own book that he WAS NOT THERE AT ALL. He wrote in his own book that he was in CA when he heard about it and that he did not come to the funeral because his wife was so upset. Also, back in December, 2010, Jesse told me something to tell Marty that would make Marty recognize that he really is Elvis. After I did convey this information to Marty, he changed his tone with me and has never returned to my site again to participate in any manner. Jesse told me, back then, that Marty is bitter and he understood that but he wanted Marty to leave me alone.
Jesse and I are not sharing this now to embarrass Marty…simply to set the record straight due to the fact that Marty has told lies and mistreated good people. Perhaps this explains some of the unkind tales which he has told about Elvis at every opportunity. Marty does himself no favors by putting himself in a position of “knowing everything” and more than willing to be looked up to and trusted to answer questions from the fans. Something which he does in a most negative manner most of the time…at least that is what I have gathered.
Below is the final exchange between Marty and me back in Dec. 2010. You may go back to the Current News and Events Page #5 for that time to read all about Marty’s attacks upon Jesse and me. I apologize that this is a page which was damaged some months ago and I have not gotten back to reconstruct it…therefore some images, etc. are missing.
Below is an example of what he was saying to, and about, me and Jesse before Jesse gave me the message for him:
12-16-2010 9:48:43 PM CST
Elvis fans don’t be fooled by this nut. I’ve posted countless times on EIN telling everyone Elvis is not alive and this Jesse thing is bullshit. I was there when he died. Linda’s NEVER been there and why the hell would he write a book with these people after all these years? And Linda, you made one big mistake because if Elvis were around he wouldn’t have dark skin under his eyes. He took care of that in the mid 50′s. But that’s right you weren’t there and don’t know because you DON’T know Elvis! Elvis fans have a merry christmas and let Elvis’ soul rest in peace. TCB Marty Also look on youtube if you don’t believe me, even Joe Esposito said they’re full of shit!
12-17-2010 8:21:57 PM CST
kebekdisk. Everyone go look at that persons youtube account. The Joe Esposito interview part 2. 6 minutes into the video he is asked about Dr. Hinton and Jesse. I tried posting the link but it would not let me. Linda you’re busted! I don’t know you so I don’t know what your deal is. But the fact is you’ve been conned or you’re conning everyone. If you all say that you’re good Elvis fans watch that video and act like good Elvis fans! Don’t give this nut anymore attention. Jesse my ass! I already spoke about the DNA crap on EIN. He had his eyes and nose done in the mid 50′s. He had an eye lift in 76 even though he didn’t need it! I know for a fact Elvis would not let himself look at all like this “Jesse” person does if he were around today. And how dare you question my friendship with Elvis! You weren’t there! I was! I was the co-bestman at his wedding and foreman of the MM for a time. I was not in Memphis the day Elvis died but I KNOW for a fact he is gone. Linda you have some nerve for having anything at all to say about me when you’re lying about even knowing Elvis! But worst of all you’re giving his fans false hope. This is the last time I’ll ever speak about this nonsense or even think of this website again. I can tell you one thing, if Elvis were around he would track this “Jesse” down and kick his ass! I’m still TCB Elvis! RIP
Below is how this battle ended.
Below I asked Marty the question which Jesse gave me to tell Marty:
Jesse told me to tell Marty this: An incident took place back in the 70′s which Marty and Elvis both knew about. Jesse said that when I ask you this question regarding that incident, Marty, you will know that I am speaking with Elvis. Elvis/Jesse said “Marty, how do you feel about David Stanley?
Marty Lacker’s last message to me:
I want to thank Marty for his message after reading Elvis’s message to him. I appreciate his good wishes to me and my site. Even though he does not share my position…I appreciate his improved attitude toward me. I wish Marty well also.
12-27-2010 9:17:50 PM CST
I believe I know exactly what he is talking about. I’m just not sure if it has been referenced at all by any of the guys in the media. I think it may have been referenced by David somewhat. Best wishes to you and your site Linda. But you know my position.

Always good to see this in a news article…even though we know.
1) Elvis Presley (1935- 1977): Elvis Presley sold more albums than any other individual music artist in history, and the second most overall (the Beatles sold more). As well as being a musician, Elvis was also an actor appearing in movies like Jailhouse Rock, Blue Hawaii and Love Me Tender. Some of Elvis’s most popular songs are Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, A Little Less Conversation, Blue Suede Shoes and Viva Las Vegas. Elvis remains on of the most recognisable singers to this day and his voice uniquely unmistakable. He is often called the King of Rock n’ Roll or simply the King. Between 1977 and 1980, despite being dead, Elvis earned more money than any other musician.

One of my prime objectives on my web site is to present the truth about Elvis before 1977 and since then. There have been so many assertions made about him…some were out and out lies; while some were just mistaken “parroting” of that which others had published. I am here to set the record straight whenever I possibly can. One such instance was the two interviews which he gave preceding the Aloha From Hawaii concert which aired in 1973. I have always loved both of these interviews. I recently read a statement made by Wanda June Hill regarding these interviews (in some of her material) and I want to share it here to substantiate the truth. These are Wanda’s recollections from the conversations which she had with Elvis during that time.
As always, I am most grateful to Wanda June Hill for allowing those of us, such as myself, to use her material as long as it is being used to tell the truth about Elvis, the man, and not just the “image”.
“…the one he did wearing the white suit and black shirt, etc and, of course, the colored glasses to protect his eyes…etc. I listened, looked and watched and he did not look or sound at all ‘DRUGGED” as was said, it was just how he talked. I saw nothing different. He was a tad nervous and of course had good reason, that was a one of a kind event he was going to be doing; and around the world all at once scared him kind of. He just knew he’d slip or something…of course, he was human! He felt as if he was going to slide out of the chair into the floor so he sat braced to prevent that. And the interviewer had “some kind of accent ‘n was hard to understand and hear” what he asked him. So he hoped no one ever saw that interview!
Anyway, he said several times he hoped it wasn’t on the wires and everywhere as it was all he could do not to slide out onto the floor “before God ‘n the world!” I told him he looked great, we saw it and there was nothing to worry about…then all the crap came out and still does…good grief are they so bored and jealous or what? The guy looked great…so he had long legs and the chair was not very big…obviously those folks who say those things know absolutely nothing about him personally at all, and they could not see the fella sitting there behind the image. …there it is…so simple and nothing at all outlandish and he sure did not look or speak as if “drugged up” to me…but then I was used to hearing that voice…and it was absolutely normal for him.”
Some who did say he was “drugged” and higher than a kite…slurring his words and etc. and looked doped up. They had to be totally blind, deaf and stupid to say that because he was himself, and he was articulate, he answered questions, he responded warmly and he didn’t hide the fact he was awed to be in that position of doing a worldwide concert….etc. He was a naturally humble guy, he was overwhelmed by the idea…and he would be the very first to do it.
He was serious because it was a serious event and he was nervous about doing it and “fallin’ on ma ass on camera…there won’t be no second chances-it’s live- around the world!” That is what he said.”…
“Anyway, the “behind the scenes” part of that interview was: He had been rehearsing nearly 24 hours straight with just a short break or two in there. Then he was going to go lie down and try to stop the head ache pounding going on…his eye was hurting him too, he had a detached retina going on and the doctor told him he should be going for treatment immediately…Well, he couldn’t take the time for that, so he said he’d do it later, he meant after the filming was finished. But he did take the relaxer the doctor gave him to relax the eye and get some relief for a time.
He had just taken it, just got settled on the bed with an ice pack over his face and was about to nod off when the door burst open and his guys rushed in calling his name and getting him up because he had to do an interview, RIGHT NOW! but no one had told him! So up he got, chugged coffee trying to unfuzz his brain and got dressed and went down.”
Below you may watch these two interviews. I feel compelled to interject here that I DO NOT agree at all with the news reporter in Las Vegas who gave Col. Parker the credit for “creating” Elvis’s image. Elvis had a heck of a lot more going for him than just the management by Col. Parker. Col. Parker was blessed to have Elvis to work for and promote…the greatest entertainer this world has ever seen and most likely will ever see.
Aloha from Hawaii extra promo
Timothy Swan Uploaded on May 26, 2011
Rare footage that was to help promote the 1973 special “Aloha From Hawaii”
I just came upon a lady’s details of her trip cross country which ended in Las Vegas. I enjoyed reading the account of their experience while watching a performance on stage. I think others will enjoy reading this also. They were such special friends…if only….
Elvis was in this building
Carol Zarudenec Smith
However, for me the most exciting performance was that of Ann Margret at the Hilton. She appeared on stage in the most gorgeous gowns. During her show she even came out riding a chopped motorcycle.
We noticed later that someone came in and stood near our table. He was all dressed in black and because the audience was in darkness, it was difficult to see who it was or if it was anyone important. Later, he walked down the aisle and took a seat in the audience close to the stage.
Ann Margret came off the stage into the audience and the spotlight honed in on that person. It was Elvis Presley! Well Joan and I started screaming like fools. Oh my God! Earlier Elvis was standing near enough to us to touch him and we had no idea it was him. He entertained the audience by singing a song with Ann Margret. I never dreamed that I would ever see Elvis Presley there as he was not advertised on any of the marquees I saw. This of course was the highlight of my trip.
It was a fabulous week of bright lights, amazing entertainment, wonderful weather, great food and fun and I actually saw Elvis Presley live. I will never forget it!
A dear friend on Facebook, Joan, shared this with me and I love it so much. This could not be more accurate about Elvis/Jesse.
Below is a message which that liar David Stanley has posted on Facebook for a new page which he is starting and for which he is seeking “friends”. I have posted his announcement along with my personal assessment of this man and his family on Facebook. I do hope that every fan who loves Elvis/Jesse will join me in boycotting this man’s attempt to gain attention and a following of his trash.
I abhor David Stanley and his family of liars. No amount of good they try to do now will ever begin to make up for the vile and vicious things they have written and spoken about Elvis. They can never make atonement for the harm they have caused.
I hope that all true Elvis fans will join me in boycotting this new effort on the part of David Stanley and his relatives.

Stanley
Below is just one perfect example of the trash that David Stanley has taken part in spreading. This is my own YouTube video. At the beginning, you will see David Stanley who is appearing on stage promoting the lie that Elvis committed suicide. Stanley joined forces with Albert Goldman to perpetrate this lie. Albert Goldman was not worthy to even dare to speak the name Elvis. No one who loves Elvis would have ever publicly worked with Albert Goldman for any amount of money and yet David Stanley did so. This is just one of the many, many disloyal and dishonest things which David Stanley and his entire family have done. They should all be ashamed to ever show their faces in any way regarding Elvis.

Graceland showcases Elvis memorabilia for a special anniversary
During this time of musical innovation and Elvis’ first recordings, he continued to drive a delivery truck for Crown Electric. Elvis started out driving the truck at $1 an hour, delivering supplies to building sites around Memphis. He was hoping for the chance to train and become an electrician. After recording “That’s All Right,” he earned a weekly paycheck, totaling $42.51, from Crown Electric until October of 1954. (Graceland)
