In the mid 1980’s I wrote and produced the pilot for a spinoff episode of The Fall Guy called Manhunter that starred Priscilla Presley and Stewart Granger. I didn’t know it at the time, but it was Priscilla’s first TV acting gig.
We got to know each other a bit, and I remember the night I met her daughter, Lisa Marie, at a party in The Valley. She was a shy, quiet, young lady who didn’t speak a word, but the evening was memorable to me for two reasons.
- She never smiled.
- She gave birth to her first child the next day.
I wish Lisa Marie Presley had had a much longer and happier life.
