July 22 ON THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY


 

July 22 ON THIS DAY IN ELVIS HISTORY
 
 
July 22, 1955
In a conference call, Colonel Parker, Bob Neal, Hank Snow, and Tom Diskin continue the discussion about moving Presley to a major label as well as booking him on a proposed Hank Snow weekly television show. At this point Parker and Snow (in partnership as Hank Snow Attractions, producers of the Jamboree Attractions tours), agree to put up $10,000 in cash to buy Elvis' release from Sun Records. In exchange they would expect a 2 percent share of Elvis' record royalties, calculating that he will receive a standard 5 percent and will presumably be satisfied with the 3 percent that he has been getting from Sun all along.

On this same day, in a clearly related development, RCA makes an offer of "either a flat $12,000 toward settlement and delivery of Presley to RCA", or a $5,000 non refundable bonus to Presley plus $20,000 recoupable from future record royalties. The offer includes the guarantee of an appearance on network television within sixty days of signing and can be presumed to be in response to terms demanded by the Colonel.
 
 
July 22, 1968
Principal photography for Charro began on location in Apache Junction, Arizona, at the Apacheland Movie Ranch.
Elvis and the guys, Joe, Charley, Gee Gee and Alan) occupy rooms on the second floor of the Superstition Inn outside of Phoenix, with a dining room of their own. (Renamed in the late 1960's, the hotel was formerly called the Grand Hotel, and was scheduled for demolition in April 2007.)

Elvis arrived bearded for the movie that he hoped would offer a raw depiction of the early West but soon discovered that the production was in as much a state of confusion as its wandering title.

After a period of movies full of girls, cars, boots and happy songs, this film should have been different, not only because of the bearded Elvis. There were plans to shoot a naked Elvis, just coming out of a bath tub, and a lot of violent scenes. However, not long after the shooting starts, Elvis notices that some of the scenes are deleted from the film. He goes to the producer and director, Charles Marquis Warren, and learns that the 'public' doesn't want violence and nude scenes anymore. But, too bad for us, Elvis accepts this explanation and simply reacts: Well Mr. Warren, when that is what they want, lets do it and take our money and go on.
