What better way to commemorate the end of Elvis Presley's life than with a whole bunch of women? It seems kind of apt, doesn't it? On August 16 of next month, it will have been 30 years since the King died, and one of his female co-stars, Suzanna Leigh, has put together Night of a Thousand Stars. This event will give fans of the music sensation the chance to meet two dozen of Presley's on-screen girlfriends. She says: "It's sort of an Elvis reunion. I'm bringing in a lot of co-stars, directors, people who worked with Elvis. It will be magical." Spanning three days, there will be "panel discussions, autograph-signing, a garden party and storytelling sessions." The price ticket for the full event -- 150 crisp, US dollars.

It's always hard to get the biggest names on any fan-event roster, so don't expect to see the likes of Mary Tyler Moore, who co-starred with Presley in Change of Habit, or Viva Las Vegas' Ann-Margret. However, fans will get a chance to greet Pat Priest (Easy Come, Easy Go), Sue Ane Langdon (Roustabout and Frankie and Johnny), Jailhouse Rock'sGloria Pall and Jennifer Holden, Gail Gilmore (Girl Happy and Harum Scarum), Celeste Yarnall (Live a Little, Love a Little) and Jan Shepard (King Creole). Ah, a bunch of older ladies reminiscing about Elvis' tongue...what could be better? I imagine that those "storytelling sessions" will get pretty saucy. Over at Leigh's IMDb page, there's this sexy quote about kissing The King: "Elvis' kisses held an intensity that melted my very being. I slipped my arms around his neck and our bodies entwined. This was all madness, but we didn't stop. A person could go to the gallows with such a kiss lingering on their lips, knowing life had been good." Meow!
