April 5th

With the "Sgt. Pepper" album now complete, Paul McCartney flies to America for a ten day stay.  First stop:  Denver, Colorado, for girlfriend Jane Asher's 21st birthday.  He gives her a diamond ring … which she later loses!  

Monkees fans marched in protest in London today when it was announced that Davy Jones was going to be inducted into The Army.  (Davy was later exempted from duty because he was his family's main provider.)  

A new Elvis Presley movie, "Double Trouble", opens in theaters, just two weeks after "Easy Come, Easy Go" premiered.  By week's end it will be this week's box office champ … but again ticket sales drop off immediately, reaching a $1.6 million gross overall.
