she undoubtedly had the most famous "walk-on" part in one of
Elvis Presley’s films. After her Las Vegas show in 1954, Gloria
succeeded in landing cameos in numerous Hollywood movies.
In 1953, she made
her debut as a French girl in the cornball comedy Ma and Pa Kettle Go on
Vacation. Then in 1954 her was
hanging on the arm of Kirk Douglas in the Disney blockbuster 20,000
Leagues Under the Sea.
Several cameos later,
Gloria landed the leggy role of a stripper in Jailhouse Rock. Elvis fans
will recall the scene in the 1957 movie in which Elvis, at the La
Florita nightclub, first meets the young record promoter who takes him
under her wing.
Gloria plays the part of the stripper who is seen briefly walking in
front of the camera Anyone who has seen Jailhouse Rock will recall her
shapely legs in the nightclub scene. I recently contacted Gloria, who
has since written a book on her experience with Elvis during the making
of Jailhouse Rock. Should you wish to purchase Gloria’s in-depth and
revealing expose, all the details are listed below for your convenience…
DID ELVIS BRING ANY
GIRLFRIEND TO HOLLYWOOD WHILE MAKING JAILHOUSE ROCK?
I wouldn't know what Elvis had stashed in the wings or the bedroom
but he sure was after me
WOULD YOU ADMIT TO AN
AFFAIR WITH ELVIS?
If I had an affair with him, I would admit it. If I were
interested he would have been ready. He had round heels and I didn't! He
had acne when I met him and that was a turn-off.
WAS ELVIS AS SEX
CRAZY AS THE MEMPHIS GUYS SAY HE WAS?
When I called him a corny horny hick, it's because he came on so
strong...just oozing testosterone.
ELVIS HAD AFFAIRS
WITH ALL HIS LEADING LADIES WAS JUDY TYLER ONE OF THEM?
I doubt if he and Judy got together since she was a newlywed. I was, too
at the time we were shooting Jailhouse Rock. Later my husband ran off
with Lana Turner and I found out he was a womaniser all along...and here
I was so faithful to him.
HOW SEXY WAS ELVIS UP
From close sources that claim to have hit the hay with him, he was
raring to go. In my book I described what he did to me when I met him
backstage at the Frontier in Vegas, April '56. If I reveal it during
this interview they won't be curious enough to buy the book. it was
quite a sensual experience! Nobody has ever done that to me before or
after Elvis. Regards, Gloria
I only dated Elvis to make Brando jealous: West Side Story star Rita Moreno reveals how the King was a flop in the bedroom
Moreno fought back by trying to make him jealous. Her first such lover in the Fifties was the young actor Dennis Hopper, but then she hit on the man whose attentions she knew Brando would most resent — Elvis.
It was 1957 Elvis then 25, was about to become a Hollywood star when Moreno agreed to meet him on the set of his film, King Creole.
She had just found another woman’s clothes in Brando’s house and was livid with him. She and Elvis went on dates but, when it came to getting physical, he was the complete opposite of the ‘thrilling’ Brando.
Their evenings "nearly always concluded in a tender tussle on my living room floor, with Elvis’s pelvis in that famous gyration straining against his taut trousers," says Moreno.
But the ‘next move’ never came. "Whatever put the brakes on the famous pelvis, it ground to a halt at a certain point and that was it..."
