THE PURLOINED PICTURES EXHIBIT
UPSTAIRS AT GRACELAND
THE LAST MAGNIFICENT ENIGMA OF AMERICANA




Elvis Presley's home, Graceland, holds tantalizing secrets. The 2nd floor is private. It's so private that no tours, no television specials nor any photographs have ever been released to the public. It is the one thing, the last thing, regarding Elvis Presley that has yet to be revealed. It was Elvis' secluded sanctuary where he lived and loved. Upstairs at Graceland is a puzzle and a temptation, a fascinating locked-room mystery that draws in the imagination of millions.

After 30 years of being held from view, fan curiousity has been brought to a full boil.
The desire to know has reached a breaking point.
By far the most-asked question on Elvis' Mansion tour is...

WHY CAN'T WE SEE UPSTAIRS AT GRACELAND?

 

The 2nd floor of Graceland has been locked up like a vault since August 1977.

Today's employees at Graceland, many of whom have served over 20 years, have never stepped foot or breathed in the rarefied air of Elvis' private sanctuary. 

Only Priscilla, Lisa-Marie and Graceland's Curator are allowed within its hallowed halls.

 Why indeed?

"No fan has ever breached the security of the
2nd floor of Graceland." -- Bob Carlson, Graceland Museums

with one exception...

Actor Nicholas Cage, a lifelong Elvis fanatic, managed the impossible by using the unique approach of marrying Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis' daughter.  His secret visit took place during the week of the 25th Anniversary of Elvis' death, at which time it is said he sat on the King's "throne", assumed the prone posture in which Elvis died, laid on the singer's bed and tried on a leather jacket.

Many celebrities have requested private tours but all have been declined. Even President Clinton was refused.

 

Millions of visitors to Graceland pass by the staircase to the 2nd floor during their tour of the mansion. Everyone sees the guard posted at the bottom of the stairs, another guard is posted at the top of the stairs as a sentinel, barricading the ominous locked door.

WHAT IS
UPSTAIRS AT GRACELAND?

WE BELIEVE
THESE PHOTOGRAPHS
TO BE
AUTHENTIC

Due to the ferocious nature of the attorneys representing Elvis Presley
Enterprises, the originating story of these photos cannot be told, but these
photographs match in every detail the written descriptions of Graceland's
upstairs rooms, as found in books authored by Ginger Alden,
Joe Esposito, David Stanley, Red West and Priscilla herself.

 Elvis' bedroom and bathroom are still to this day exactly, precisely the way he last saw them. Nothing has been touched. Underwear, socks, pajamas, sweaters, gloves, scarves and other items are still kept in the dresser drawers.

When not on tour, Elvis spent all day and all night for weeks at a time upstairs at Graceland, rarely leaving his temperature-controlled 68 degree haven. Staff brought him anything he asked, whenever he asked them to.

The sheets on the bed are the last Elvis and Ginger slept in. Miniscule hairs, skin cells and dried body sweat still cover them. The bed was straightened and food removed from the room by Elvis' housekeeper only hours before the room was sealed. Bodyguards claim they also removed prescription drugs, vials and hypodermics.

 

 

Linda Thompson slept with Elvis for years, pictured here on Elvis' bed when it had a furry dark rose-colored bedspread.

Linda was responsible for redecorating Graceland in the rich gaudy crimson velours and plushes. Priscilla's color scheme used greens and yellows and whites, and Graceland post-1977 is decorated in Priscilla's style.

The heavy double doors guarding Elvis' bedroom are padded for soundproofing. Today they are chained and locked from the outside to protect the room and maintain its pristine condition.

 

 

Over the years, items from Elvis' upstairs office and the furniture from Lisa Marie's childhood bedroom have been brought down and put on display. The office contains a white leather couch, piano, table, desk, gun case and assorted photos and gifts.


Today, much testimony and evidence exists to suggest that Elvis saved up three 8-hour doses of his daily prescription drug cocktails and took them all at once to commit suicide. His body was found in rigor-mortis face down between the toilet and the shower. His skin was tinted blue and he had bitten deeply into his tongue. His pajama pants were still around his ankles. Three hypodermics and the three bags for the drugs he usually took at 8-hour intervals were found next to him. Be it by accident or deliberately, Elvis killed himself.


THE BATHROOM

Towels still hang.
Toiletries of cologne (Brut), toothpaste (Crest), hair dye, deodorant, enema and constipation medication, cotton balls, combs, brushes, hair gel, lotion, various make-up vials and brushes and a couple of books still litter Elvis' sink and vanity area.

 

BUT IS ELVIS ALIVE?

Priscilla paid for a commission to investigate the circumstances regarding his death.

That reports concludes by saying  "The Presley Commission is continuing to monitor matters pertaining to Elvis' disappearance in 1977, and is active in maintaining intelligence related to the entertainer's whereabouts, as well as his intentions for future public contact, if desired."

 99% of the fans who enter Graceland don't realize that as soon as they walk into the foyer, they are standing directly below where the body of Elvis was found.

In 1968 a tunnel entrance was found on the grounds of Graceland that historians say dates back to the time of the Civil War and the Underground Railroad which smuggled slaves to freedom. It led approx. 300 feet and exited the property in the S.E. corner. Did Elvis ever use it? Is it still passable today? Why isn't it ever mentioned?

  1000s of Elvis fans have created their own web sites featuring pictures of their tour of Graceland.

Before anybody did anything, Elvis did everything...
for example, here's
Elvis flashing teat on stage
just like Janet Jackson -- but in 1977!
Also note that Elvis isn't that fat, by today's standards.

THE ELVIS CUP is now on TOUR
The King sloshed tap water through his puffy lips;
his sweaty hand gripped the cup for that brief
moment, then abandoned it without a thought.
28 years later, fans worship the styrofoam

souvenir as a holy chalice.

HIS LAST YEAR IN PICTURES


 Linky & Dinky extracted this bit of lyric from
Elvis' Jailhouse Rock (a song about dudes
in prison
) and wonder what he's talking about, exactly...
Number forty-seven said to number three:
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me."
Nahhh....

We, Linky & Dinky, both sincerely
believe that if Elvis Presley, the King
of Rock 'n Roll, were alive today
, he'd say:
"Red, Sonny, get me out of this coffin!"
