- the joy continues:
For the most part he just made fun of the movies and by the time a movie came out, we pretty much had the jest of the entire movie because he'd come back from the studio and give a run down of that day's script (only he would exagerate things) WHen he did Paradise all he talked about was being crammed into that helicopter with all those dogs on that Bleeping*^**%($@) rocking platform and he was getting sea sick "in the air" and he wasn't sure who was going to barf first-him or the dogs. WHen he did LAL and the scene where they put the board between him and Michelle in bed - he tried to make us think he actually got a splinter and his description of that scene was extremely funny because we really didn't know, at that point, what the heck he was talking about. Hmmmm...Bed, Board? Splinters.. what kind of movie is this anyway?
Oh, and I always list this under Trivia because I've told the story before so this will be a repeat for some. When Elvis was filming Double Trouble, some fans had beat up Cilla and he went after them and half demolished their car. Anyway, in the course of that he banged up his hand quite badly and in the movie you can actually see his swollen and bruised hand. That was the Reader's Digest version!
Let's see - when he was filming Change of Habit he was quite pleased to be working with MTM and one evening he came out wearing rubber gloves like what Dr's wear -- he didn't say anything - just held up his hands and that was enough to put everyone into hysterics. It was downhill from there because everyone wanted to be a patient and he was trying to keep the conversation clean but the fans - not so much!
