    Need some picture's for an lecture

    Hi!

    Im going to hold an lecture at school on Tuesday about Elvis.
    I will try to get my class mate's more interested in Elvis.
    No one are fan of him i'm my class and they see me as quite wierd because i like Elvis as much as i do.
    I do not belive any of them will become fans because of the lecture, but i belive they will look at him differently.
    They just think hi was this fat drug addicted man in stupid suites, i have to change that!

    So i need som great pictures of Elvis from all stages of his life. From the start to the end. I've found many great pictures, but i'm shure there are some better out there.

    Thank's for the help.

    Hey man....

    TCB World's image gallery is SUPERB; a first rate collection. But there are other great sites. Like this one:

    http://elvis.fan-sites.org/gallery/

    The emphasis there is on his movies - but there are tons of cool scans.

    I really love some of the Charro ones. You could always use one of these to show people something they probably haven't seen before - Elvis with a beard! You could say that Elvis hated having facial growth but still looked cool and did it because he was playing a role! See... that's Elvis the actor covered. Most people probably know he did a string of lightweight films - but how many people know he did some edgier films like Charro where he looks rugged and gets severely beaten?

    Anyway, here's a fave of mine:

    Hello B_H!

    I'm so happy for what you have on mind. I'm a college student and I have done something similar too (at school)... Well, I programed music and movies twice Had nice results. Be optimist! If you do it right, people may become a little more interest on Elvis.
    And know what I love to do? Wear my Elvis T-shirts and buttons (once a while)! It's like publicity People come to me and ask me about "the king", that's just so cool!

    Good luck with that lecture friend! Checking the TCB-Gallery is an awesome idea.

    also, present them with music they think is not Elvis. if you talk in your sleep, long black limousine, whole lotta shakin, something really rocking that they'll think is not Elvis, but is. for god sake man, show those f##kers who Elvis is. get em off their crap music!

    Hi Wendy,

    Love your new Avatar! Like your photo's too! I love the 50's Elvis he was so happy then and carefree and his music was raw and oh so new nobody knew what hit them back then. It was an exciting time for music all because of Elvis. And his looks will we all know about that face!

    Oh Tommy, thank you for this message (reply). I've been in love with "50s Elvis" all my life. That era is very especial for me (although I wasn't even born by then ). I guess sometimes people forget that part of "the king's" career, or get more into 70s ---because those years receive a bit more publicity (?)---. I love Elvis and everything that he represents... includying those 50s for sure!

    And my avatar... well, Elvis looks pretty handsome in there.

    These have always been some of my favorites photos of the King. Possibly you could use these...

    a rare one from germany...

    hm, wonder if this one is suitable for a lecture ... but it certainly shall attract some attention.

    it is definitely a very rare one from the most popular german teenie-magazine 'bravo'. it's a centerfold.

    B_H, i think it would be great if in your lecture you pointed out to elvis' numerous donations and charity activities. not only did he have gorgeous looks, but a real BIG heart as well for the not-so-lucky ones.

    eg. in 1956, he promoted prophylactic polio vaccination for the 'march of dimes' campaign by publicly getting a 'vaccination' against this disease.

    take good care, E.D.

    On second glance, it's just me.

    @cryogenic: can we have the same one WITHOURT shirt, please ?

    @B_H: hope it is not too late as input for THIS lecture, certainly in time for the next one... but hopefully a pleasure to all readers anyway: elvis in 1956 on a magazine cover, riding his harley davidson 883cc.

    is there a 'elvis and his motorbikes' thread somewhere? if not, we should start one, shouldn't we?

    take care, E.D.

    Are you serious?!

    That wouldn't be a pretty sight. Though, sadly enough, I have a picture somewhere.

    You could always try PM-ing me and seeing what happens...!

    Anyway, here is one of my all-time faves. This is significant because it comes from his press conference marking his return to live performing in Vegas in 1969. And, even as a bloke, I have to admit it's a perfect complexion. If only we were all so blessed!
