Page "Dolores Fuller" Paragraph 8
Fuller's ability as a songwriter manifested itself through the intervention of her friend, producer Hal Wallis ; Fuller had wanted to get an acting role in the Elvis Presley movie Blue Hawaii, which Wallis was producing, but instead he put her in touch with Hill & Range, the publisher that provided Presley with songs.
Fuller went into a collaborative partnership with composer Ben Weisman and co-wrote one song, " Rock-A-Hula Baby ", for the film.
It was a beginning that eventually led to Elvis Presley recording a dozen of her songs, including " I Got Lucky " and " Spinout ".
Fuller also had her music recorded by Nat ' King ' Cole, Peggy Lee, and other leading talents of the time.
