That day they were introduced to each other and the press as the stars of MGM’s upcoming film, Viva Las Vegas.

It was 28-year-old Presley’s 14th film, while, at age 22, Ann-Margret’s career was just starting to explode.

“She made his life a little easier because she understood him and didn’t make any demands on him,” Elvis’s cousin Billy Smith recalled. Priscilla never understood that.”Marty Lacker added, “Ann genuinely liked people, and she liked every one of us. He didn’t reveal this vulnerable side until everyone had disappeared, until those private moments when we were alone, after darkness had blanketed the city and we’d parked somewhere up in the hills and could look down upon the sprawl of L. or up at the stars.”The only threat to their relationship during the Viva Las Vegas shoot was their egos.

Ann-Margret admitted she had one, and no one would deny Elvis did as well.

On July 9-10 they each recorded their separate songs at Radio Recorders.
