Elvis Presley Performing on Stage

(Original Caption) United Press photo by staff photographer Stewart Sawyer, made in Hollywood, may throw some light on the wildest exponent of rock and roll. Here is Elvis Presley, a man who never took a singing lesson in his life, yet managed to make a record ("Heartbreak Hotel") which sold more than a million copies after just a few weeks on the market. His later hits have firmly established him a top musical star --- but observers along Broadway and at Hollywood and Vine are still scratching their heads, baffled by it all.
