The King, McQueen and the Love Machine with Barbara Leigh
From 1970 to 1972, Barbara McQueen and Elvis Presley embarked on a love affair from the moment they locked eyes. At the time, Leigh was a world-class model and actress whose looks and beauty embodied the naturalistic seventies and captured the King’s heart at the same time. Add to this mix an affair with the world’s No. 1 box-office attraction, Steve McQueen, and president of MGM studios and the inspiration for Jacqueline Susan’s “The Love Machine”, Jim Aubrey. Leigh herself has a legion of fans in Hollywood and abroad. She is legendary among horror and comic fans as the original Vampirella, a comic book character created by Forrest J. Ackerman.
