Does anyone remember a story about Elvis' features resembling that of a greek god? If so, has anyone compared the two? Just thought it'd be interesting.

The statue in question is of Antiochus Epiphanes. Here's the pic...

Thanks T_J, I don't remember that one. But I don't remember DVDs I watched a few nights ago:-)

There are many other examples too.

Yes, riley, Maia's site is amazing, thanks for posting the link.

The "classic" quality of Elvis' features is also noted in the movie Mystery Train - I believe the Japanese tourist dude compares him to a statue of an old-world (Babylonian, Greek, Assyrian, etc.) god or king.

Aloha, this is Maia. I'm so glad you like my website.

I recently re-did my "Heart to Heart" page so that you can open it to a really nice gallery. My husband created the "user friendly" template for our other websites, but of course I can use it for Elvis as well! :D

Marty Lacker responds: I appreciate the opportunity you presented to me to have a laugh this evening.

This Wanda June Hill, whose name we have heard before since Elvis died and her bogus claims of her numerous telephone conversations with Elvis, did that for me, a huge laugh. We never bothered to refute her story because we just shrugged and said, "Well here's another one claiming something that wasn't true." Now it's getting tiresome, so we will comment.

Let me state very clearly, ELVIS HATED TALKING ON THE TELEPHONE! Her claim that he called her and that even tcalled to ask her husband's permission to do so is not only preposterous it's downright fantasy.

As to her claim that we drugged him, not only borders on slander and libel, it is so far fetched it takes the mind of either a deranged mental patient or someone who in fact, contrary to what Ms. McDougall's opinion is, someone fabricating stories to make that proverbial buch. (BUCK).

Wanda June Hill had nothing to do with Elvis.

We, The Memphis Mafia have foolishly been accused of everything under the sun regarding Elvis' demise and all the so-called negative things pertaining to his troubles in life.

What some of the small coterie of fanatics who view him with rose colored glasses truly don't understand, is that Elvis was a grown, intelligent man. He made his own decisions just as most of us do. Nobody made Elvis do something he did not want to. Did some of us talk to him about what he was doing--YES! Did he change--NO! To be fair to Elvis's memory, I was almost as bad as he was taking pills. So if I had said anything to him while I was doing that it would be the pot calling the kettle black.

However, when I stopped taking pills in '76 I mentioned how good I felt and maybe he should try it and he ranted and raged about me, accusing me of trying to tell him how to live his life. He did the same thing to Red West when Red talked to him about it in Vegas. It is a know (KNOWN) fact that when someone is addicted or dependent on any kind of substance, be it pills, hard drugs, alchohol, food or anything else, you can talk to them till you're blue in the face about how bad it is for them, it will do no good until they are ready to stop. As a HUMAN BEING, Elvis was no different.
They need to realize that they can't change reality nor can they change history and no matter how much they try to do it to make Elvis into something that they wanted him to be, it doesn't work that way.

Elvis was a good man, a good person. A generous person and that's about all Wanda June Hill got right in her book.

She's just another person trying to inject herself into Elvis' life who had nothing to do with his life.

It's amazing that you never heard of these people when Elvis was alive and the fans just about knew the names of the people who knew Elvis when he was alive.

To be fair to Wanda, I asked the other guys if they ever knew or met her, to a man the answer was NO!

Draw your own conclusions.

Thinking you really know someone just for talking to them on the telephone is so wrong as thinking you really know someone for their posts on internet. And thinking Elvis just took prescription drugs for his blood pressure, colon and glaucoma and appear so "drugged" is being plain naive or stubborn. You just have to observe the millions of people that have different ailments and live with them untill they die and need to have medication everyday of their lives and go to work too and you?ll see the difference.
Or maybe you should read what doctors had to say the times Elvis was admited to hospital... but of course... it would be another well thought conspirancy the people that was there with him built to make the world think he had a problem...
For me being a good person and having an addiction is perfectly compatible and won?t change a thing how much I like Elvis.

EP had absolutely classic facial features. I think it was Andy Warhol who first pointed out that the Statue of Liberty from the side looks exactly like EP.

Academic works have compared EP's looks to, among others, Apollo and Dionysus.
