Elvis Presley and Sophia Loren Meet on the King Creale Set, January 1958

Sophia Loren and Elvis met each other once - in February of 1958 - at Paramount Studios while Elvis was filming King Creole. Sophia flipped over Elvis! Sophia Loren met Elvis Presley at the Paramount Studios cafeteria while he is filming 'King Creole', in February 1958. Still photographer Bob Willoughby happened to be there and took these memorable shots of Sophia and the King. According to Bob Willoughby, Loren spotted 23-yr-old Presley eating lunch in the Paramount commissary and decided to go over & introduce herself. Which is to say, she promptly sat in his lap, gave him a kiss, & began mussing his carefully sculpted pompadour. He didn't mind.

'I bet you wish they would stop screaming' said the beautiful Italian actress.

'Never' answered Elvis. 'And I'll tell you why; they cover up my mistakes. Lots of times when I start reaching for a high note I know I'm not going to make it so I just make some crazy movement and the kids scream and no one knows the difference'. He also makes the movements when the music moves him. 'You know' he mused, 'the hardest thing in the World is to be yourself. Everytime I'm myself I get criticised for it'. At this Sophia comforted him: 'Elvis I think you are a very nice boy' 'Thanks a lot!' answered Elvis. 'You know thats the worst thing you can say about me'. The King of Rock n Roll is one of Miss Lorens most devoted fans. He turned to one reporter: 'You know, I've seen every picture she's ever made. She's only seen one of mine'.He'd like to team up with the Italian actress when he finishes his two years in the Army. His boss, Hal Wallis even has the script.

When Sophia Loren plopped herself down in Elvis Presley's lap at a Hollywood lunch and tousled his famous pompadour. 'He was very self-conscious, but when one of the most beautiful women in the world musses your hair, there's not a lot you can do', Mr. Willoughby told the London newspaper 'The People' in 1994.

Elvis Presley Video Video Preview: Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered Unreleased Film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don’t Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. This is an excellent release no fan should be without it. The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people.

We love Elvis Presley !!!!!!!! : So ... Stop, look and listen baby that's our philosophy ... First thing in the morning, last thing at night ... look, stare everywhere and see everything inside ... Stop, look and listen!
