Hunting down Elvis Presley at his home in Bel Air tonight


December 4, 1964, Friday Beatles release Beatles for Sale!

After school I went to Charleston’s Dress Store… I got the job!! I start next Saturday wrapping Christmas presents. I’ll make about $25.00 over Christmas Vacation. I was feeling so happy about my success, that I went shopping and then home. Tonight, we all went to a dance at the Inglewood Rec. absolutely nobody was there, but little kids, so we left after about an hour. We drove to Bel Air to see Elvis Presley’s house. Pearl and some other kids’ went up the driveway, but, ran back down just as fast. We went to Tiny Nailor’s in Westchester “The Bob” was there, but nobody else, except we saw Howard’s girlfriend. We went home about 11:30.

565 Perugia way, in Bel Air, off Sunset Boulevard.  I knew the area, because my Great uncle, founder of the Maybelline Company lived in Bel Air and I’d been going up there all my life.

Here is what Elvis Presley looked like in 1964, when my 57 Chevy filled with Saffrons went looking for his house in Bel Air.  I actually never was an Elvis fan, but he was gorgeous!
