It might be fair to say that Elvis's persona is larger in death than in life, although he is and was referred to as "The King" and is ever popular today as he was during the height of his popularity.
"The King's" Death. On August 16th 1977, he returned to Graceland after a late appointment with the dentist. He went to his bedroom around 7:00 pm to rest before an evening flight. He was later found in his bathroom and rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead from cardiac arrhythmia.
This photographic illustration is a tribute to Elvis from the movie "Viva Las Vegas" in 1964.
