It looks like 1973 -- but it's hard to tell if it's Charlie Rich. And who is the guy behind Elvis?

From what I can see, it looks like Geller.

If Larry Geller, then this image is circa 1976-77. Can we get another scan to clarify?

Above all it's a great candid! Looks a lot like Charlie Rich, and if you could get the question mark off the face of the guy in the back it might just reveal Geller. Then it would certainly be from 1976/77. Then December and Vegas would be a good guess.
To me it does not look like a 1973 photo, but his weight went up and down that year, if 1973, maybe august/September in Vegas would fit?
We need a better copy...Postelvis?

Who is it Fool??

It looks like it is a fake image and that Elvis is put into the front of the photo to me.

I don´t know who it is. Some Elvis clone, I guess. But it does not look like Elvis to me.

I bought this photo about 30 years ago and I have no reason to doubt it is Elvis and Charlie Rich. As to who the Indian is, I have no idea. The outfit Elvis is seen wearing is indeed very rare, a similar leather jacket was once given away by Vernon Presley for a charity raffle.

Cheers,
Simon

Simon - many thanks for this. At least we can now see and discuss a much more clearer image..

Yes, thank you Simon for this bigger photo. But somehow that Elvis still looks strange to me.

It's almost certainly Charlie Rich. And how cool is that?

Assuming Rich, Presley and Geller, when was it taken? It appears to be at an airport, and it's the afternoon.

For some reason it feels like summer 1976 -- maybe July or August. The sideburns match best from that period, too.

Anyone know more?

It's not Gellar, maybe it's Will Sampson. The picture is taken too high though, and I can't see if he has a sink in his hands or not to see if it's really him.

Wow, that is one awesome candid! Thank you for uploading, postelvis!

Re: ELVIS and CHARLIE RICH 1973?????? CANDID

Thanks for the much better image! It's definitely not Larry, now he doesn't have a question mark on his face!

I guess it's just a photo taken at an odd angle or something. It does look a little strange but probably is Elvis.

Yes, the man on the right does look more like Will Sampson (Chief Bromden in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and many others) than Larry
Great new pic

Elvis does indeed look a bit odd on that photo. Someone's posted a link to Johnny Harras's site over in the All Elvis Section. When I saw the first photo in my post, I immediately thought of this one :oops:

I rarely write something here but c'mon... It's not Elvis! I think it's Johnny Harra...

Re: ELVIS and CHARLIE RICH 1973?????? CANDID

Tue Aug 05, 2008 1:30 pm

I agree, it looks alot like Johnny to me as well, back before the weight gain.......It almost looks like Charlie is signing an autograph for Johnny

What a cool pic. I have stared at it a long time, and every time I settle on what/who it is, I change my mind.

I think that's a good guess.

It's NOT Elvis....but it IS Charlie Rich, for sure!

Re: ELVIS and CHARLIE RICH 1973?????? CANDID

Tue Aug 05, 2008 4:49 pm

I think it's, in fact, Johnny Harra. I don't ever remember seeing Elvis wear the type of jacket that this guy that's supposed to be Elvis is wearing.

It's clearly not Elvis. Anyone who cannot recognize Elvis when they see a picture of him should not even call themselves a fan. That is clearly not Elvis. It' s some lame impersonator.
