The principal photography on Tickle Me started.
Elvis and Priscilla, Vernon and Dee, the Esposito's, the Gambills and the Schillings returned to Los Angeles. The group had come up with the thought to spend their vacation in Europe. Every single one of them really wanted to go to Europe, and the ones without a passport went to arrange for one. The Colonel, however, argued with them that Elvis' European fans would never accept that Elvis would come to Europe as a tourist and not as a performer. So the plans changed and the bunch switched to the Bahamas.
Elvis flew to Las Vegas because there was delivered a new car.
Elvis and Linda arrived at Graceland, where Linda called Dr. Nichopoulos. Just the day before Elvis experienced some difficulty breathing, so Dr. Nichopoulos arranged for his nurse, Tish Henley, to care for Elvis at home.
Elvis returned the call from Red West and for the first time after the firing they had a long talk. Red taped this conversation where Elvis sounded confused and incoherent. There was the overall tone of regret on both sides.
Elvis never confronted Red directly, but simply said: " If you need me for anything, I would be more than happy to help out. You do whatever you have to do. I just want you and Pat to know I'm still here."
