Yes !

28th October - 1956 Sue Johnson - Polio Jab - 001.jpg


It was 28th October, 1956, when he had the polio jab & later performed in his 2nd Ed Sullivan show.

Sue Johnson starred in the stage musical 'The Most Happy Fella' & she & the rest of the cast featured in Sullivan's show on this date.

Well done, Private Presley !

With this high resolution you can count every hair on her forearm individually... :lol: I'll put it this way: That's a statement against the otherwise so typical flawless look in show business! ;)

I researched a little bit on her and actually found the "The Most Happy Fella" part on The Ed Sullivan Show:

Susan is the tall, slender one singing "Big D." in a duet with Shorty Long.

There's also an interview about the meeting between her and Elvis:
She also made TV appearances, including one on “The Ed Sullivan Show” the night Elvis Presley made his historic TV debut [sic]. A little of the craziness of that event spilled over on her.

“Elvis wasn’t a verbal person, so he communicated with women by kissing them,” said Johnson, who acknowledges not liking the young Elvis. “We were in an elevator together, and, as the doors opened, he tried to kiss me. His fans ripped off my clothes because he had touched me.”
