A graduate Film student at UCLA is doing a graduate documentary project on James Gregory, the first writer of an Elvis Presley book: The Elvis Presley story. The book was published in 1960 (Hillman Books, NY; 1960). "A must for every Elvis fans," it says on the cover -- and it probably was in 1960! One of the first books about Elvis, but it is, in fact, a collection of articles that appeared in the Movieland and TV Times magazine between 1957 and 1960. Includes articles "authored" by Anita Wood and Cliff Gleaves, as well as "An advance peek at Elvis' new movie, G.I. Blues". Those were the days..."
He is looking for Elvis Presley scholars in the greater Los Angeles area who would be willing to talk about James Gregory's book and its contributions to the Elvis Presley phenomenon. If you or any of your members would be interested in being interviewed on film for the project please contact Neil.
