    Who the heck is this child?

    Okay, in my search for Elvis' song lyrics, i keep running across this picture of this child. most of the time, i get the impression that it is not Elvis, but then i go on another site & there he is again.
    personally it doesn't look like Elvis to me, but he is a really cute baby.
    once & for all, is it or isn't it Elvis?

    I'm not sure it's Elvis at all. I've read that it's Barbara Stanwyck's adopted son, Dion.

    I thought it was Elvis, I didn't know who it was either, but Getlo answered this question in the Gallery section.."It's Barbara Stanwyck's adopted son, Skipper."

    Ah-hah! I knew I'd seen this photo somewhere, this website also claims this is
    Elvis as a baby. I've read on more than one site that it IS NOT! I agree with
    you Sara, it doesn't look like Elvis.


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    It is indeed.

    Why people think this is Elvis is beyond me. It looks nothing like him.

    Dion Anthony "Tony" Fay, was born in February 1932. He was adopted by Barbara and her first husband, actor Frank Fay, on December 5, 1932. One of Dion's nicknames was "Skipper".

    Barbara eventually endured a bitter custody battle for Dion. She won after Frank threw Dion into their swimming pool.

    Barbara never had any biological children.

    I'm just glad I'm not the only who doesn't see the resemblance! Thanks again to Getlo for supplying the information!

    what a tragic period in Dion's young life! thanks for the info - again - Getlo. after i read some of the posts i went back thru gallery and found the pic & your comment. i should have known it wasn't Elvis, the boy is dressed in expensive looking clothing
    now then, why is this photo in TCB-World photo gallery if it isn't Elvis?
    & did Elvis know Dion from his friendship with Barbara Stanwyck?
