The Identical' an imperfect impersonation

Faux-Elvis offering strikes a number of false notes

The dearth of quality cinematic offerings in late August/early September is well-documented. This period, when summer is ending and everyone is busy preparing for the business of the fall, is a dumping ground for the unwashed and unwanted leftovers of the movie world. These are movies that even the studios know aren't any good. This point gets harped on, but it's important that it be repeated here, because this past weekend's sole new wide release epitomizes the concept.

The King is dead

LOS ANGELES - For the right price, you or a loved one can rest in peace in the tomb of The King.

Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien is selling Elvis Presley's original crypt to the highest bidder as part of his 'Music Icons' auction later this month.

The tomb is located inside the granite and marble mausoleum at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee.

Presley was interred there alongside his mother, Gladys, after he died Aug. 16, 1977. Two months later, they were re-buried at his Graceland home. The original crypt has remained empty ever since.
