October 22, 1956 During the evening Elvis rehearsed at home with the band and the Jordanaires for his second performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

October 22, 1965 Elvis liked to watch flims at the Memphian. This night he watched Dr. Strangelove again. More favourites for him were: King Rat, A Patch Of Blue, The Pawnbroker, Cleopatra, Johnny Nobody, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Thunderball and Dr. No.

October 22, 1968 Elvis began with the production for his new and final MGM movie called Chautauqua. The Colonel was afraid this title would give difficulties with the advertisements so it was changed into The Trouble With Girls (and how to get into it).  The rehearsals started at 11:00 a.m.

October 22, 1969 The four couples, Elvis and Priscilla, the Esposito's, the Gambills and the Schillings, who were planning to go to Europe together flew to Miami instead and then on to Nassau. They stayed at the Paradise Island Hotel. Unfortunately the weather was bad, the whole bunch returned home earlier than intended.

October 22, 1970 Elvis flew to Palm Springs for the weekend.

October 22, 1971 Elvis flew back to Palm Springs, where he remained for at least 4 days.

October 22, 1976 Elvis performed at the University of Illinois Assembly Hall, Champaign, Illinois.
