Could be, but are you 100% sure? The light hair might be because of the flash. The picture is taken from really close and apperantly the flash went of right into his face.


Elvis picked up a guitar and he started playing. Talking at a mile a minute.

He said, "I want you to understand me,
because this is a moment in time
where we all have to understand each other."

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits."

Well, it's not a great look at the image. And it's hidden away in a private FB group:

ELVIS: A Celebration of the Man and his Music
https://www.facebook.com/groups/CelebratingElvis/


And this dude says he has the original copy:
https://www.facebook.com/stephen.shutts

Maybe someone ask him for more information?


My guess is that it's a silly candid taken when Elvis was at home in Memphis from July 20-28, 1956.

Not fake. Here is another one taken at about the same time, probably at Audubon Drive, maybe July 56

That photo isn't from 1034 Audubon Drive in Memphis and it's not from July 1956.

There are clues that It's Elvis at Paramount Studios in January 1957, trying on various pieces of wardrobe.

I think it's almost certainly real.
Look at the distinctive wood panelling in the background. It's the same as in this photo taken by Alfred Wertheimer in the rec room of Audubon Drive with cousins Billy and Bobby Smith.
