Does anyone know who Elvis' favourite co-star was?
I had read that he didn't like working with Joan Freeman in Blue Hawaii....
I'm not saying this is true, but this is what I read...

Shelley Fabares was one of his favorites (Spinout - MGM 1966)

Nancy Sinatra (Speedway)
Mary Ann Mobley (Girl Happy & Harum Scarum)
Juliet Prowse (G.I. Blues)
Shelley Fabares (Girl Happy, Spinout & Clambake)

To me it's hard to find only few favourite co-stars 'cause there are so many and I know Elvis was in good relationships with everyone he worked with...I can name also Dolores Hart, Barbara Eden and Tuesday Weld.
I've read that some co-stars at the beginning weren't so enthusiastic to work with him but after have known him personally they changed their mind...for example Barbara Stanwyck...is it true?:hmm:

Yes that's true. An actress like Barbara Stanwyck had quite an impressive career behind her shoulders when she agreed to work next to Elvis. Funny thing was that not many people did take Elvis serious. But after meeting him and working with him their view on Elvis could totally change.
But the fact Elvis got along well with a few co-stars does not automatically means they were his favorite. It all depended if he was able to relate to them in a spiritual way and if they had a good sense of humor.
