August 15, 1977 Or A 1976 Photo?

Fri Jan 11, 2013 4:50 pm

I have three pictures that are SUPPOSED to be from August 15, 1977...but I seriously have my doubts. What do the experts say??

I'm sure the middle image is from late 73, around the time of the divorce. I'm sure there was a better version on Pauls Candid Central, but can't find it right now. Will check and come back. As for the others, it's so difficult to tell as he could change so quickly. The bottom one looks like maybe a late 76 / early 77 shot, and the first one is anyone's guess!

Sorry I can't be more help!

Pretty sure none are 8-15-1977.

this is this image i was thinking about that looks very similar to the middle image, and his face has the same unhealthy colour / shape it did at the time of the divorce.

The sideburns are way too long for October 1973. Must be 1976, perhaps summer.

About the last photo, this is what Cricket Coulter writes in her book Elvis´ Real Gold: "The Spirit of His Fans":

August 15, 1977, Graceland

To my knowledge this is the last picture ever taken of Elvis. His daddy is driving. They were alone on their last outing together. I saw Elvis one more time, early on August 16, 1977, when he returned from going to the dentist at 1:30 AM.

You mean this one?

Identifying the car might help confirm the date. bripet56 is pretty good at this.

If 8-15-1977, where did Vernon and Elvis go? Where was Ginger? Or Lisa Marie?

Cricket, of course, is wrong about it being the last image, as at least one was made when Elvis returned from that dentist appointment in the early morning hours of 8-16-1977.

***Edit - This may very well be from August 15, 1977 - see subsequent posts below

I don't think any are from August 15, 1977, as Doc noted the last photo is below (8-16-77) and Elvis doesn't look like that in any of the three photos posted...but you never know. Let's see what the others say.

I'd had this as 1973 for years, but now I'd now say this is from '76 or '77, you can partially see Vernon and he looks frail...any guesses folks?
Leaving Graceland sometime between December 1976 to August 15, 1977

Yes. That is what Cricket says is the last photo of Elvis. It is interesting, because she says she was there at the gate when Elvis returned from the dentist. She must have known the familiar photo published in the September 20 issue of National Enquirer. What makes her ignore that photo? And how can we be sure that the photo taken by Mr. Robert Call was actually taken at 0.28am on the August 16th? I know it says so in the National Enquirer, but is it true?

Yes. If the Enquirer says so, it's true. You know that.

Interesting...it would put the photo to sometime around December 1976...and maybe even August 15, 1977

Elvis' Last Cadillac Seville Up For Auction (Nov. 2008)

On eBay Australia you can bid on Elvis Presley's 1976 Cadillac Seville.

From the auction:

This is probably the last Cadillac that Elvis purchased! It is believed that Elvis bought more than 200 Cadillacs for himself, friends, family and strangers. This is your chance to own the last one that he purchased for himself in December 1976!

As I understand it, this was a 1977 model Cadillac Seville which was sold to Elvis in December 1976 - date of manufacture is October 1976.

Upon Elvis' untimely death in August 1977, this car was gifted (by Vernon Presley) to Ginger Alden - Elvis' fiance at the time.

There are some great shots taken by fans of Elvis driving this car through the front gates of Graceland only two days before he passed away.

This car is a fantastic piece of Rock and Roll and Elvis history! You will not be disappointed with this car when you sit inside it and feel the "spirit" of the King!

The car is in good condition, but has some cosmetic wear and tear (as it was obviously driven as a day to day car by Ginger and others who owned it), and it runs well. It would need some restoration work done to it if it were to be used as a vehicle, but as a show piece, it is in great condition to display!

The middle photo is a still from a video where Elvis is driving, exits the Graceland gates with Vernon next to him, looks both ways and turns right and drives away. I have that footage somewhere on a Beta tape. He is driving his 1977 Cadillac Seville. Same car that is now owned by Greg Page.

The surroundings indicate it was Fall '76 or Winter '77. The grass is brown.

The first day of winter in 1977 was December 21, Elvis would have already been gone over 4 months.

Strange! If it´s a 1973 photo, it´s not that good. If it´s a 1976-77 photo, it´s very good. :?

It looks like those hideous Christmas trees that were used in front of the house are there behind the car in the second picture, so I would guess it's before January 8, 1977, if they were left up until his birthday, as I heard the Graceland decorations usually were.
