Please be sure to pay attention to the part about Jesse.  This explains Elvis choosing to be Jesse now.  This is much the way Jesse explained his choice to me years before this show aired.

VERY IMPORTANT

PROOF ELVIS WAS NOT IN THE MOVIE “HOME ALONE”

For many, many years there is one “Elvis sighting” rumor that has persisted and spread like wildfire.  So much so, that I am certain there are many people who truly believe it to be true.

That rumor is this:
ELVIS APPEARED IN THE 1990 MOVIE “HOME ALONE” IN THE AIRLINE TICKET LINE

Now, I am about to present the absolute proof that it was NOT Elvis in “Home Alone”.  My proof is thanks to my good Facebook friend, Mike M. who found out the name of the extra in the movie and first directed me to the Facebook page on which his information appears. HIS NAME IS GARY GROTT.   Sadly, he passed away this past February 8th.  His Facebook page is still open for those who wish to see that he is the same man shown below in this article…and that he is the same extra who has been mistaken for Elvis in the movie “Home Alone”.  https://www.facebook.com/gary.grott

After Mike M. directed me to Mr. Grott’s Facebook page, I did write an article stating that he is the extra in the movie.  Then another friend on Facebook, Elisabeth W., visited the Facebook page of Mr. Grott’s son and found a photo of them together.  Elisabeth took a face capture of Mr. Grott and did an overlay of the man in the movie “Home Alone”.  Elisabeth’s work showed that they were definitely the same man.  Below are images given to me by Elisabeth.

Mr. Grott and his son

Mr. Gary Grott with his son.

Mr. Grott

Converted the color photo to black and white.

The below photo is Elisabeth’s overlay which was created by taking the above photo of Mr. Grott and overlaying it with the photo of the”Elvis” in the movie.  As you can see the two faces match perfectly.

Also, here is another photo of Mr. Grott which shows him clearly. 

Gary Grott

I wrote about all of the above back in June.  Then a few days ago, another wonderful friend on Facebook, Bernadine M. did some research to see if she could find further proof of Mr. Grott being the extra in the movie.  She made an amazing find which is rock solid proof that the man in the movie “Home Alone” definitely was Mr. Gary Grott.  Below is Bernadine’s finding and I thank her so very, very much.

Please visit the below article to read a great in-depth report based upon interviews with Mr. Grott’s family who state that he was the extra in the Home Alone movie.  He became acquainted with Christopher Columbus the movie director and producer who chose him as an extra for this and other movies.

Below is a movie poster shown in this article which by itself proves that it was Mr. Grott in the scene which so many have mistaken for Elvis.

A Home Alone poster featuring Gary Grott and Macaulay Culkin that has been on the wall of Grott’s home for years.

I hope to be able to post the full article on my site if I am able to obtain permission from the author to do so.  But, until them, please do visit the above link to see all of the proof which he tells after meeting with Mr. Grott’s family.

Please do share my article with everyone to help end this story that has gone around for so many years.

I discussed this with Jesse years ago and he said that he did not know what people were seeing.  So, I sent him the movie so he could watch it and see who it is that is supposed to be him in the movie.

The below video is by Billy Stanley, who was one of Elvis’ stepbrothers.

For me personally, this tearful apology is too little and too late.  One can never take back such hurtful lies which were told…not of the magnitude that he, his mother, and brother have told just for attention and money.

He even once told a lie about me in an interview regarding a video of him which I had on my YouTube channel years ago.  This was a privately recorded conversation between him and a long-ago friend of mine during a book-signing.  I knew directly from my friend what he had done and said in the interview.  He denied what was on my tape by lying to say that he corrected himself after the taping stopped.  He totally dismissed me and the truth.  For a completely unrelated reason, Jesse asked me to remove one of my specific topic pages from my web site and since that video was a part of the page which Jesse wanted removed, I cannot now present that video again to prove what I am saying here.  Once Jesse wants something changed or deleted, I do not put it back unless he tells me to.  So, in this instance I cannot document what I have stated above.  Billy Stanley was doing an interview with an Internet web site and they specifically asked him about me, by name, and my video tape of him.

Jesse called tonight and we had a really good visit.  He is doing well except for some sciatic pain.  He was calling to see if we are alright from the hurricane.  I enjoyed our visit so much…always do.  We talked about a number of things.   

I will explain about one of our topics.  It involves a photo which has been circulated on Facebook and which has been sent to me with questions about whether it is really Elvis/Jesse.  So, I sent it to Jesse along with an explanation about people asking me if it really is him.  It seems to have originated from a lady in England who claims to be in touch with him and speaks with him regularly.  Jesse assured me emphatically that this is not a real photo of him and that he is not in touch with the lady who claims to know him.  I will post the photo below so that everyone may see it and know that it is a fake.

Jesse told me again, and told me to tell everyone, that I am the only one “speaking for me“.  He said that he has known our go-between and me longer than he has known anyone else and that if anyone has anything, such as a photo, it would be one of us.

Here is the photo which is being shared on Facebook.  The lady in England from whom I have been told it originated has the initials S. M.

Supposedly Elvis at 82 from Susie Mitchell

Photo being passed around as “Elvis at 82”.

Jesse said that the people around him are very carefully chosen and that a photo such as this one would never be taken nor given out whatsoever.  He said this looked like a “posed photo” to him.

Here’s why Mick Jagger met Jerry Lee Lewis in Memphis

At the Sam Phillips Recording Service on Madison Avenue: Sam’s son, Jerry Phillips; Mick Jagger; writer Anthony McCarten; studio manager Judd Phillips (nephew of Sam); Peter Guralnick; and (tall, in back of Guralnick) Steve Bing. (Photo: Sam Phillips Recording Service)

Accompanying the group was Bing, 53, a Jagger friend and veteran movie producer (“The Polar Express”) who has worked with the rock star on several projects (including the Stones music documentary “Shine a Light”) and is among the announced producers of the Phillips biopic.

Bing also is a friend and lifelong fan of Jerry Lee Lewis, and he helped produce and finance the Killer’s three most recent studio albums — star-studded affairs that featured such guests as Jagger, Keith Richards, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen.

Among those flabbergasted by Jagger’s surprise appearance at the Sam Phillips Recording Service were the members of the Drive-By Truckers, the acclaimed Alabama-rooted rock band currently recording a new album at the studio with Memphis producer Matt Ross-Spang.

“If he had stayed around longer we would have covered ‘You’re So Vain’ just to have him come in on the backup vocals,” joked Truckers co-founder Patterson Hood, referencing the Carly Simon No. 1 hit from 1972 that featured Jagger on growly harmony.

In addition to being a reunion of old friends, rock-and-roll pioneers and road warriors, the meeting of Jagger and Jerry Lee Lewis at Sun was arranged as much for talismanic significance as for purposes of research. Lewis, of course, became famous and recorded many of his greatest records at Sun, the studio founded by Sam Phillips that counts Elvis, Johnny Cash, Howlin’ Wolf, B.B. King, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison on its legendary roster.

Jagger’s activities were about as hush-hush as Rolling Stones-related news can be, at least until Jagger himself tweeted a photograph of himself standing in the doorway of Sun to his 2.13 million followers. Other social-media photos followed, revealing the participation of Bing and twice-Oscar-nominated screenwriter Anthony McCarten, a biopic specialist whose credits include “The Theory of Everything,” with Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking, “Darkest Hour,” with Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, and the upcoming “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with Rami Malek as Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury.

Back By Popular Demand, The Graceland Performing Arts Camp Will Return In 2019

by BWW News Desk Sep. 18, 2018  

Elvis Presley’s Graceland has announced that due to overwhelming demand, the second annual Performing Arts Camp will be held over two weekends in July of 2019. Campers will learn acting, music and dance techniques alongside new friends from around the world. Two different date options are offered: the July 10-14 session is exclusively for kids ages 13-17, and the second, July 17-21, for kids ages 6-16 (with instruction segmented by age). This is a one-of-a-kind experience for the entire family as the kids and teens have the unique opportunity to perform live on stage at Graceland.

The camp is an immersive theater arts and music experience for both experienced and novice performers. The Graceland Performing Arts Camp participants will learn from Broadway and regional professionals as they explore their creativity in workshops on acting, singing and dancing at the Graceland Soundstage and on stage at The Guest House at Graceland Theater. Over the four days of activities, campers will develop a showcase, culminating in an evening performance on stage at The Guest House Theater for family and friends on Saturday night.

In addition, each camper will follow in the footsteps of Elvis Presley throughout their stay, as they explore the Graceland campus, tour Elvis’ legendary home, and learn how he became the greatest entertainer of all time – in the studio, on stage and on the big screen.

While campers are having fun during the day, parents and other family members will keep busy with Graceland tours and archives presentations, shuttle transportation to other Memphis attractions and relaxing poolside at The Guest House, before reuniting with their children in the evening for family dinners and activities.

There is limited-availability for each week. Camp packages include four nights at the AAA rated Four Diamond resort The Guest House at Graceland, all meals for campers and families, camp activities and a tour of Graceland for an all-inclusive price starting at $1299 for two adults and one camper. Additional fees apply for additional campers. For additional information and to register for the camp, visit www.Graceland.com/Camp.

Last week, while going through a box of my old magazines, books, etc., I came upon the Star Tabloid from 1996 in which they ran an article about an interview which Billy Smith and Marty Lacker gave to The People publication in the UK.  I have shared an article about this before on my original web site many years ago.  But thought I would scan this article and share it once more for new visitors to see.  Marty died and told many lies before he died so his words here and what he had to say about this interview later on are pretty much meaningless.  While Billy Smith denies that there was any truth in this interview right up to today.

One still has to question why they even discussed this in the Alanna Nash book.  See scans below:

Another good match between Jesse and Elvis.

Elvis Jesse Sept 18

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

Since there are still those who doubt that the photo of Jesse is really the man we all knew as Elvis, I want to make a point of sharing the following page from my original web site. My original web site is still under reconstruction, but you should see enough on this one page to remove all doubt. Be sure to take note of the matching scars on both legs of Elvis and Jesse. Jesse said “How could anyone deny that!?

Just want to share that Jesse phoned tonight and we had a good visit.  He is feeling better as his sciatic pain has lessened some.  He has been trying to call me earlier this week but his phone is giving trouble. As always, it was so uplifting to hear his voice and to speak with him.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2018

Our hardworking and talented good friend, Simon Laxon, has truly outdone himself the last few days and has posted six brand new comparison videos to YouTube.  Each of Simon’s videos does document the fact that the photo of Jesse with his grandson, Benjamin, which was taken in 1994 and which was given to me by Jesse/Elvis himself in 1997, is a photo of the man the world knew and loved as Elvis Aron Presley.

“Elvis” was the image which died on August 16, 1977.  Jesse is the man who lives as normal a life as possible to this day.  Jesse explained in his own handwritten letters about his choice to reinvent himself as Jesse in order to give his stillborn twin brother a life of 42 years which equals how many years Elvis lived.  Jesse first explained this to me over the phone many years ago.

Below are two pages from his handwritten introduction to the book in which he explains that he chose to let Jesse live when he ended his life as the image “Elvis”. 

The following two copies are scans from own copy of the rough draft of the book:Jesse's handwritten introduction to book page 1

Jesse's handwritten introduction to book page 2.jpg

And now, below are the wonderful new comparison videos which Simon has created showing that my friend Jesse is, indeed, Elvis Aron Presley.

Below is the link to Simon’s YouTube channel where you may view ALL of his 75 videos proving that Jesse is Elvis.  I encourage everyone to visit and subscribe to Simon’s channel to encourage and support him in his great efforts.
