SUZANNAH BANNED FROM NEW PRESLEY FILMElvis Presley’s leading lady in “Paradise, Hawaiian Style” – 21-year-old blond British actress Suzannah Leigh – has been banned by the powerful Screenwriters’ Guild of American from making a new film with Elvis.
For the film, “Easy Come, Easy Go,” Suzannah was cast as a yacht-owning American millionairess with Elvis as a deep-sea diver.
But the American Guild says that with so many American actresses available a British girl should not get the part.
Says Suzannah, who was the first British girl to play opposite Elvis: “The part was specially written for me. I think it’s a pretty rotten of them not to tell me until a few days before I was due to fly out.”
