Long live the King!

The history of Hawaii today in the Advertiser includes this factoid:

1977: Elvis Presley dies at the age of 42. His first Island appearance was on Nov. 10, 1957, in a concert at Honolulu Stadium. His Bloch Arena concert on March 25, 1961, was a fundraiser for the Arizona Memorial.

Elvis made three movies in Hawaii (Blue Hawaii, Girls Girls Girls and Paradise, Hawaiian Style) and apparently visited here several times on vacation. Check out this site for more information on the King's time in Hawaii.

I am not a huge Elvis fan, but I think I should try to watch at least one of these movies. Does anyone have a favorite?

Gotta watch Blue Hawaii.

But IT WILL be terrible.

No doubt.

Don't know anything about them, but I'd choose the "Girls, Girls, Girls and Paradise." Sounds awesome.

That is awesome that Gaffney has a blog. She can talk about about that thing that she did the other day at the place and the way it made her feel. Oh also you should watch the Girls Girls Girls movie because there are a lot of cute boys in it.
