Elvis' movie co-stars to mark 30th anniversary of his death

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Elvis Presley's movies weren't exactly works of art, but for the fans there was something magical about him on the big screen, dancing and flirting with one starlet after another.

Many of his on-screen girlfriends are still around - and they're still ready for their close-ups.

Suzanna Leigh, who played Presley's love interest in "Paradise, Hawaiian Style" in 1966, has organized an event next month in Memphis to offer Elvis fans a rare chance to rub shoulders with up to two dozen of his movie-set buddies.

The three-day bash will be one of more than 30 Elvis Week events in Memphis from August 11th to 18th. The activities will mark the 30th anniversary of his death.
