The King's eleventh film, "Girls, Girls, Girls" was released in 1962 and featured Elvis as a charter boat pilot. Ross Carpenter loves his life on the sea as a fishing guide/sailor, so when he finds out his boss is retiring to Arizona, Ross tries to find a way to buy the Westwind, a boat that he and his father built.

Laurel Goodwin

"Laurel Dodge"

Laurel Goodwin was born August 11, 1942, in Wichita, Kansas. Laurel’s first film was 1962’s Girls! Girls! Girls!, in which she co-starred with the very popular Elvis Presley. Goodwin played the role of Presley’s leading lady, Laurel Dodge, a rich who pretends she doesn’t have money so men will like her for who she really is.

Following her work with the King, Laurel guest starred on 2 episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies and 1 episode of The Virginian. In 1963, Goodwin starred as Augusta, Jackie Gleason’s older daughter in the film Papa’s Delicate Condition. For the next few years, Laurel co-starred in the films Stage to Thunder Rock, The Glory Days, and an episode of Get Smart.

To date, Goodwin's last acting appearance was in 1965 when she was on Star Trek in the original pilot episode The Cage.

Jeremy Slate

"Wesley Johnson"

Jeremy Slate was born February 17, 1926. His career started out with numerous guest-starring roles in popular television programs of the 50s, such as Gunsmoke ( in which he was featured in 9 episodes in 1955, alone!), Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Perry Mason, to name but a few.

In 1960, Slate’s hard work paid off when he landed his first movie role in Elvis’ G.I. Blues, costarring Juliet Prowse. Two years later, he worked with the King once again in Girls! Girls! Girls!, playing Elvis’ boss, Wesley Johnson. After Jeremy’s Elvis flicks, he appeared in no less than 19 movies and television shows, most notably being an 8-year run as character Chuck Wilson on the daytime serial, One Life to Live. During this time, he suspended his work in films.

When Slate concluded his role in OLTL, he resumed working in movies, most recently starring as Father Francis McKeen, the Lawnmower Man, in the Stephen King movie of the same title.
