| An interesting documentary about "Elvis still being alive"
I haven't heard about Orion before but to be fair I know almost nothing about Elvis either. Just that he was super popular in the 60's-70's. But having heard about the idea that "Elvis is still alive" I was curious to see this documentary.

It is an interesting story about an artist Jimmy Ellis whose beautiful voice and singing talent still kept him from being famous because he sounded too much like Elvis. But as Elvis died a producer used this similarity to promote him even though he had to hide who he is.

This was pretty interesting to see how the marketing was thought out. How this most likely has contributed big time to the whole idea that Elvis didn't really die. And also how it affected Jimmy Ellis. On one hand he sure benefited from it as it has drawn Elvis fans to him. But at the same time one can see that he wasn't happy with it as he deserved his individual fame.

Lots of interviews and footage from the past. Would recommend to watch it
