Candid Elvis and Dr. Elias Ghanem - 1975

Post by MikeFromHolland »

.

Made on February 16, 1975: Dr. Ghanem behind the wheel of what looks to be a Mercedes, with Elvis on his side.
You can also see a glimp of Sonny West, sitting in the back.

Thanks for posting. Looks like a Mercedes to me though.
It's not the Stutz as you can see in the picture..
I'm sure Ghanem gave a lot in return for his Stutz.
Sad.

How did you arrive on the 2-16-1975 date? If correct he was just a couple of days out of the hospital after a 17-day stay.

Downloaded these a while ago and filed it under that date, so the caption that went with the photos must have indicated Feb 16, 1975.

Candid Central has it filed under December 16, 1975 (just found out with a google image search).

So December 16, 1975 is the correct date I suppose?

I wouldn't assume that. There are many misdated photos on Candid Central.


Okay, thanks.

To all: is there somebody here who knows the date for certain?

We all know what a generous man you are Doc, so please let me know what photos are missed dated so that I can correct them. I would appreciate the help. You can PM me.
