the answer is: none

her husband Ken Darby wrote 4 songs for the movie Love me tender; she is credited as composer for copy right problems.
Darby was affiliated with ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers) while Elvis' music company was affiliated with BMI (Broadcast Music Inc)


next question:
EP Enterprises

this is the name for:
a company?
an airliner?
a juke box company?
a football team?
a club with impersonators?

Answers 1 and 4 are both possible in this case. In the sixties it was the name of Elvis' football team. At the moment it's the name of the organisation who takes care of everything that is linked to Elvis.

hello leroy

this was a tricky question; you're answer is correct>> a company and a football team in the 60's

it seemed that's it is a game between us as you're the only one who answers the questions.
but here is the next question:

did elvis served in Germany with:

- the marines;
- infantery division;
- special forces;
- armored tank division;
- wellfare division;
- military health service;

It seems you're right. There isn't much action on the board itself too so I guess we're keeping things going.

The answer is: armored tank division (Hell on Wheels)

This question is something you have to find out for it's not really in the books.
What's the connection between Elvis and Clint Eastwood. Several answers possible.

Would Don Siegel be one of the connections ? Didn't he direct Elvis' Flaming Star and then among others Eastwoods Coogans Bluff ?

Bruce Springsteen
He was as big as the whole country itself, as big as the whole dream. He just embodied the essence of it and he was in mortal combat with the thing. Nothing will ever take the place of that guy.

Don Siegel is part of the connection. But it goes further than that.

Okay, I will explain. It starts with the movie "Charro!". Besides the fact this movie has been compared many times with the kind of role Clint Eastwood played there's more. First of all the director of "Charro!" was Charles Marquis Warren who was also responsible for "Rawhide", the TV series where it all started for Clint. But in "Charro!" playes an actor named Paul Brinegar. He's playing the role of bartender Opie. He also played the cook Wishbone in "Rawhide". And off course Donald Siegel is another link because he directed "Flaming Star" and a lot of films for Clint. In 1971 Clint played a disc jocky in "Play Misty For Me". In that movie the song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" was played. A song Elvis covered that same year. In 1974 Clint played in "Thunderball & Lightfoot" where another song featured; "Where Do I Go From Here", also covered by Elvis in 1972

- waterskying;
- swimming;
- football;
- baseball;

it was a difficult question:

Jane Greenwood - Elly Wood - Teresa Shepard don't exist; they came from my mind and Elvis had never dated these girls.

now an easy question:

which mark(s) of the automobiles never belonged to Elvis' car collection:

- Buick;
- Rolls Royce;
- Cadillac;
- Hummer;
- Lincoln;
- Messerschmidt;
- BMW;
- Stutz Blackhawk;
- Volkswagen;

Well...isn't Gracelands address :
Elvis Presley's Graceland
3734 Elvis Presley Blvd.
Memphis, TN 38116

So couldn't you add 3764 Elvis Presley Boulevard to that list ? Or has it changed ?
