How can a 1964 guitar been used by Elvis in a movie that was actually shot in 1962 ??????.
Also the guitar Elvis is playing on the picture during the scene in "It Happens at the World's Fair" is a Gibson B25. It has a larger body.

I was wondering if these items are authenticated. I also thought Elvis guitars were in Graceland.

Cliff, not everything that Elvis once owned is at Graceland. He gave away a lot of stuff during his lifetime. When it comes to the guitars, there are so many missing. Also a lot of the guitars that were used in movies were purchased by the filmcompany because Colonel Parker had a habit of charching them extra if ever Elvis had to use his personal belogings in a movie.
