    It sounds very interesting! Thanks, Meg!

    For this to be done right, it would depend on storyline and the cast, but they have a lot of time to develop both to ensure quality...

    who is Elisabeth Mansfield?? I never heard this name before...

    The other one, "Tears of a King" sounds really good, too!

    She was a secretary/lover for Elvis while in Germany. She lived with him in his house at Bad Naugheim and he brought her with him to Graceland when he was discharged. She married Elvis? friend Rex later.

    Movie on Elvis' Army years

    It better live up to expectations, or I think most fans will end up with "G.I. Blues".....

    Yes Priscilla was with Elvis in Germany but so were Elisabeth and a long list of many women franny... For Anita living at Graceland I?m not sure but I think she wasn?t living there if I?m not wrong she was living in a woman?s house whose name I can?t remember right now but I have seen an interview in a web recently where she tells about it.
