Frank welcomes Elvis back from the Army (1960)

June 23, 2006

Two legends: Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. I imagine Frank felt rather old generation here next to a hormone popping, knee buckling Elvis, fresh back from the army. Look at Elvis’s eyelashes: his face is so emblazoned in our memory, and his eyes are icons of pop culture. We all know those eyes. There they are. Blinking, and making girls SCREAM.
