My daughter, Loretta Harper, was additional costumer for the film, “42” about Baseball great Jackie Robinson which opened in theatres on April 15. The film was shot in five different locations of which two were Chattanooga, TN and Atlanta, GA.
Through the years, many of you have met and come to know Loretta. She was only nine when she went with me to Memphis to show my Elvis artwork, before there was an official Elvis Week, or as it was called in the beginning, “Elvis International Tribute Week”. She went with me every year until graduating high school and going to work, which took her from Nashville to Chicago, Montana, Houston, Austin, New Orleans and as of four years ago back home to Nashville. Now twice a year, when possible, she makes the trip to Memphis with me during EW and the birthday celebration. It is something she has always enjoyed, especially all the wonderful people she has come to know.
The third photo shown was taken in New Orleans during the filming of “12 Rounds”, she was Key-Set Costumer and is standing alongside, wrestler, John Cena on top of a car getting him ready for his next shot.
