Elvis flew to Los Angeles with Joe Esposito, Charlie Hodge and Billy Smith. The other guys went by car.

Elvis hired Marty Lacker.

Also new in the house was Scatter, a chimpanzee. Elvis got the chimp from Captain Bill Killebrew. The monkey was trained to "drive a car" . Elvis and the guys really enjoyed the things the chimp did, unlike some of the girls around.
