A touched up photo doesn't mean it's fake.

There will be always something to be said, if we want to.

If there weren't any photos at all of dead Elvis, some people would be suspicious.

There are a couple of photos, and some people still think they are fake.

That is what I thought, and I have asked three of my friends who were at the funeral, with regard to the grainy photo of the coffin. One of my friends has a photo, from a distance, of the coffin, but you cannot see the coffin in her photo well enough, to compare the photo of her "good photo" to the allegedly "drawn" photo, as the coffin is also blocked by the pall bearers (gosh this is so sad, I hate writing this, but that "strange photo of the rails" has always been odd).

The grainy appearance of the photo of which we refer, taken by Billy Mann, could another answer be that, rather than the rails being drawn, that the photo was underexposed (or whatever), taken without good light with, perhaps, a really lousy camera, the photo was simply increased in size to be bigger, so that the photo looks grainy?

My lovely friends said that is how our Elvis looked, as he laid, that is 100% our idol, so very sadly. Mindi sat with Elvis for as long as she could, and you can see from the photos with Mindi and Al, how absolutely devastated they were, no-one can act that well, no-one.

Elvis' hair, being a little messed and chopped out in an area, was because Joe was asked, I don't know how many times, to take clippings of Elvis' hair for people's mementos. :(

It the photo a developed photo or an instant photo, Tony? It is instant, isn't? So, what I said above, could be correct?

Exactly.

Touching up photos was/still very common, too, as we know (models, etc. for magazine spreads).

It is just that no-one just says "yes, rarararara" that is what is odd.

Then he was replaced by Jesse Garon, who was alive and lving in Tupelo working as a plumber.

But he couldn't stand the pressure of fame, and he vanished from sight in August 1977.

Now, aged 84, he lives in Mars with Walt Disney and Brian Jones.

Mystery solved.

That's the truth!

The info regarding the coffin photo(s) is out there, I've covered it in detail many times before, including the camera used which is NOT the one Spa Guy shows in this video.
Sad to see Billy going down the theories route without evidence to support his most recent claims, the facts are available if he could be bothered to do some real research.


I think Billy wants to be correct. Could you please advise which else needs fine tuning?

I know that the "fine tuning' is happening with some things, it would be good for others to be also fine tuned, that you refer to, as those who were around Elvis, all they want is for Elvis to be portrayed, as, how it was, and they are doing that as much as they can.

If not too much trouble, if you could let me know, please?

Thanks, again, Tony.

Billy is always correct or so he thinks, and he certainly needs fine tuning. Him and his family are arsehole - this they have proven quite well over the years.

Anyone who chooses to believe him are not that good judge of character.

I've met him, I have friends that know him, and I can't fault his enthusiasm, but unfortunately it's leading him down the path of making him believe what he wants it to be rather than be more pro active with corroboration to find out the truth.
Putting something out there and asking others to help is just making things worse. Some of those out there are already overtly conspiracy theorists without any facts to prop up what they offer up to him.
Poor form imo only.

Of course, if there was NO picture, the conspiracy theorists would really be going on and on.
Although, it's sad, I am glad that a picture was made.
He seems to be at peace.

Thanks, Tony.

Scooby, did you read the story that I shared here, ages ago, of Nana Ames' recollections of the funeral?
