Mysterious Girl In Iconic Elvis Photo Finally Identified

I’ve always wondered back in the day, there were beautiful women who were not supermodels. Some have gone undiscovered for years, here’s a great interview of one of those ladies.

 

More than five decades ago, a 21-year-old Elvis was caught on film giving a playful French kiss to a lovely–and unidentified–young woman. The photo became iconic; but even the photographer, Alfred Wertheimer, didn’t know who the girl was. Her name, if not her image, remained unknown for years.

Until now. According to an interview with Vanity Fair, a 75-year-old real estate manager from Charleston has stepped forward to claim the identity of Elvis’s anonymous “date for the day.”

Barbara Gray, who has endured seeing herself in the photo repeatedly–as well as in other shots from the famous series Wertheimer captured on a summer day in 1956–told Vanity Fair she has decided to reveal herself simply to get her story out.

“My granddaughter went to Graceland and brought back a coffee cup, a little lunch bucket, and a clock, all with that photo on it,” she noted to the magazine. “She said, ‘Grandma, can you get your name on the picture?”
