In September 1959, 24 years old Elvis Presley met and began dating 14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu during her military service in Germany. The following month, the king left her in Europe to return home to the United States. After filming his first film in two years, GI Blues, the rock n’ roll star began filming the Western Flaming Star.
Her leading Flaming Star lady was Barbara Eden, who appeared in an interview at Elvis Week 2022. The 90-year-old was asked if she had any memorable on-set conversations with The King, which she described as “very sincere”.
The I Dream of Jeannie star recalled: “Oh my God yeah we had a lot of that because it was so easy to talk to him. He had his friends and he had his guitar with him and his dad. And they were singing and we were talking. It was the first time I had heard of Priscilla, but I didn’t know her name.
During the 2022 Elvis Week interview, Barbara also recalled how her then-husband Michael convinced her to go see Elvis perform in Las Vegas, where she also had a spectacle.
At first, the actress was resistant in a way she normally didn’t, but he was so adamant that he went after him.
The 90-year-old said: “I’m so glad I did it, he was thrilling! I mean really. All those guitars on stage with him and then his singing, I just can’t even breathe to think about right now! He is so talented. Such a talented soul indeed.
