Elaine Dundy

“[W]hat upset grownups of both sexes about Elvis' performance was that he had broken the deepest taboo of all. He used his body as rhythmically and erotically and seductively as a woman--that was the forbidden territory he had entered. It was not only repulsive and offensive--it was nauseating--the word most used. It was an attack on male dignity.

The kids, however, not yet grown into the stereotypes of gender, saw in him an exhilarating physical freedom.”


Elaine Dundy, Elvis and Gladys
