One of Elvis' first loves.
15 June 2007 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

My rating is not based on quality; it is based on being an Elvis fan and the interesting story and rarely seen 8mm film footage and still photos. In July 1956, Elvis is taking giant steps in becoming the King of Rock 'n' Roll. The world is about to become his oyster. Elvis plays a show in Biloxi, Mississippi and meets a pretty young girl named June Jaunico. The previous year she was Miss Biloxi. Shortly after Elvis tells the press he is going to Florida for some peace and relaxation. In actuality, he returns to Biloxi to spend time with June and enjoy fishing trips arranged by June's mother's boyfriend Eddie Bellman. Eddie filmed Elvis with a new 8mm camera never knowing the interest it would bring in the future. Elvis and June would grow to be very close, with Elvis racing down two-lane highway 49 making it to Biloxi from Memphis in just three hours. Once even getting a speeding ticket in Hattiesburg. June was patient reading of Elvis' infatuation with Debra Paget, who played his wife in his movie debut LOVE ME TENDER. There was also the item of actress Natalie Wood willing to date Elvis and a brief stay at Graceland. By Christmas time 1957, June knew that her and Elvis' world were not the same; so their whirlwind romance would end and become a lifelong memory. I can't imagine any Elvis fan not being impressed with this little documentary. Even curious minds should find it enjoyable.
