Ann-Margret and Elvis met in 1964 while filming Viva Las Vegas. They had a brief affair until Col Parker stepped in and suggested Elvis end the relationship. Long after that Elvis would always send Ann-Margret flowers in the shape of a guitar whenever she opened her show. "Thumper" was Ann-Margret's code name when she called Graceland. Ann-Margret was Elvis' favorite co-star. They remained good friends for many years. Ann-Margret was his only co-star that came to Elvis' funeral. FULL STORY HERE

On the 50th anniversary of the release of the movie, your blog is nice to see. I will be sharing this with my fan club (called Viva Las Vegas!) . I need to point out to you that your second picture is in error. It is a photo shop. Here is the actual picture of Ann with her husband, Roger. http://www.fanpix.net/picture-gallery/ann-margret-picture-15058898.htm If you would like more pictures of Elvis and Ann together on the movie set, I would be happy to email them to you for your blog. Viva Elvis, Viva Las Vegas!
