Elvis songwriter, Ed Wood's muse Dolores Fuller dies at 88 - News - ReviewJournal.com: "Dolores Fuller, whose eclectic and offbeat career touched cult-movie bases from Elvis to Ed Wood, died Monday at her Las Vegas home. She was 88.
Stepdaughter Susan Chamberlin told the Los Angeles Times that Fuller died after a long illness.
Her most famous association was with Elvis Presley movies, for which she co-wrote 13 songs, including 'Rock-a-Hula Baby' for 'Blue Hawaii.'
In 1994, however, the bad-movie cult that had been circling 1950s cross-dressing director Wood culminated in Tim Burton directing an 'Ed Wood' movie bio starring Johnny Depp. Sarah Jessica Parker was cast in a role based on Fuller, who was Wood's muse and leading lady in oddities such as 'Glen or Glenda.'"
