He was one of the world's most eligible bachelors, an insanely handsome movie star whose engagement to a dark-haired non-celeb resulted in a stack of headlines and a pile of broken hearts. There's a good chance that the news made your mom grab a box of Kleenex and excuse herself from the dinner table ... and no, we're not talking about George Clooney.
We're doing a serious Throwback Thursday, drifting back to May 1, 1967 when Elvis Presley married 21-year-old Priscilla Ann Beaulieu. At that time, the 32-year-old King – still several years away from a rhinestone jumpsuit and double chins – was the world's top-earning entertainer, starring in up to three movies a year and singing his way through their soundtracks. The couple first met eight years earlier, when he was stationed in Germany with the army and she lived on a military base with her Air Force Captain father. The two began seeing each other ("It was a very innocent time," she later said, because she knows what you're thinking. "We still had morals, very high standards.") and Presley proposed with a three carat diamond in December 1966.
So, to celebrate this most random of anniversaries, here are 10 things you might not know about Elvis, Priscilla and their $22,000 wedding cake.

Thirty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley is still the King.
Tens of thousand of Elvis fans who gathered at Graceland for a candlelight vigil Wednesday night, on the eve of the 35th anniversary of his death at age 42, were treated to a special appearance by Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley – the first time the late singer's ex-wife and daughter have attended the annual vigil together.
"I've always avoided this because I felt that it would be too emotional," Lisa Marie, 44, told the crowd, reports the Associated Press. "But I really felt it was important to come down here tonight. I love you very, very, very much."
"You should see this from our point of view. It's amazing," said Priscilla, 67, as she looked out from the stage at a sea of burning candles. "It's truly a sight to behold."
