Elvis The Rebel and the King Book
[+] enlarge image

The Rebel & The King is a celebratory, first-person account written by Academy Award-nominated actor, Nick Adams. The book delves into his close friendship with Elvis Presley during their whirlwind eight days in Memphis when Presley returned to Tupelo for his Homecoming Concert in 1956. The book was posthumously published by Nick Adams' daughter, Allyson Adams, after she discovered the unedited manuscript in a box of her father's memorabilia. The book includes facsimile of original text, edited version, 15 photos (some never before seen), and a foreword by Allyson Adams. Elvis Presley had just exploded on the American scene and was filming his first movie, Love Me Tender, when he introduced himself to Nick Adams on the backlot of 20th Century Fox. Nick was a struggling actor, part of the Rebel Without A Cause gang and showed Elvis the town, introducing him to Natalie Wood. Nick was infamous for writing about his famous friends, including James Dean, and he and Elvis became fast friends. "I would rather live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb. And that was the first thing that came to my mind when I sat down to write this story about Elvis.” Nick Adams, 1956.
