Elvis Girlfriends: Dixie Locke

Dixie Locke was the only girlfriend Elvis had pre-fame that he put effort into courting her – once he was famous, the girls flocked to him and where vetted by his various Memphis Mafia inner circle.

 

While Elvis missed a show to take her to her prom, Dixie realized the happy home she imagined having was not going to happen with a singer – his constant touring and all those girls girls girls; maybe if he’d been the electrician…

Col Parker didn’t want Elvis with a serious girlfriend and Elvis both dated multiple women as well as Hollywood publicity dating.

Dixie is often represented in Elvis biopics, his first girlfriend and in a way, also his last in that they met and flirted with each other: an actual courtship-afterwards Elvis never got over his insecurity or the golddigger blues.

June Juanico was his next serious girlfriend, Elvis and she discussed marriage – but Parker discouraged Elvis to marry early in his career. Had to keep the fan dream of being the one, alive.

Anita Wood, a Memphis celebrity lived in Graceland with him, as would Priscilla and Linda Thompson but not Ginger Alden, his last actual girlfriend, she held out for marriage.

  4. Hello, Nina! Are you sure the picture is that of Dixie Locke? She has such a broad, generous smile, normally! I don’t recognize her at all… Thank you. Have a nice week-end.

  5. Which kissing one? Are we talking about this blog page? I see 3 videos and 2 pictures. I was talking about the picture on the right hand side, of course. Someone else on Twitter also confused her (Dixie Locke) with a 1953 (!) classmate who was at the Class ’53 pre-graduation picnic a few days before June 3 (graduation day). The girls all had the same kind of hairstyles and dresses, of course: they followed the same 1950s fashion.
