Wife (around fifty) of dying senator who is in the hospital with strong heart attack, that´s George. She meets Elvis at the John Casey´s club in Memphis (the club is a metaphor for society with social classes) after Elvis caught Priscilla with P.T.
They tested “blue drink” (together with Arnold Lane and John Casey) that will open their minds in good and bad.
Surprisingly, George asks Elvis:
“Do you want to be my son tonight?” (George is a childless woman.)
And Elvis who is still deep in love with dead mother, can´t believe to his ears…
John Casey lends them big black limousine with driver where George started her “therapy”.
This time Arnold Lane (Elvis wanted to be with him in the car) can´t believe what he hear… As he says one time:
,,Shame that Alfred Hitchcock didn´t make psychodialoguesdramas… This is it!”
Yes, dialogues between Elvis and George (and sometimes Arnold) are variations for clinical psychology themes: mother-son relationship.
Elvis asks driver to drive them to some place where they can be really alone… without any city lights. There he sings his absolute masterpiece only for three people.
Then George stays in Graceland for three days, especially in the bedroom. Elvis buys her nice white dress.
They listen Frank Sinatra (Only the lonely, September of my years) when Priscilla leaves him and he stays locked in the bedroom.
George´s husband dies as she is invited to “the last dinner with Elvis”.
“The last dinner” is full of strong dialogues between Elvis, colonel Parker, Arnold and George.
Colonel Parker (he informs George about her husband with bitter-sweet voice) introduces Elvis´s comeback, Elvis loses (one more time) his confidence about singing his own compositions and George (with defeated Arnold) leaves Graceland because she can´t see Elvis´s decline.
At the end:
Elvis calls George (somebody from his “boys” finds her telephone number) and asks her to come back to Graceland.
George writes her bitter professional report (for CIA) about Elvis´s mental breakdowns at Graceland.
It´s difficult to say if George loved Elvis for a while or just had played her great role…
