Released on DVD by MRA Entertainment at the end of 2005 is the documentary DVD "The Elvis Files". This 1990 "documentary" investigates the question if Elvis is still alive.
The cover graces a classic picture Elvis, nothing wrong here. The DVD menu is basic, but well designed.
Is the content as good as the design? The story is told in a standard way, interviews, good pictures and (then) good footage. So called "experts", authors (of "Orion" and "The Presley Arrangement") and (former) FBI agents share their light on the theory that Elvis is still alive and faked his own death.
By asking a lot of "why questions" on "strange" events, (missing) items, (missing) documentation, procedures not followed and pictures taken after August 16, 1977 showing Elvis watching fans pass by his grave, they conclude something wasn't right. Interesting enough Elvis' first cousin Gene Smith cooperates with this documentary and claims it wasn't Elvis in the coffin.
The guessing continues, with the help of so called experts they conclude Elvis supposedly faked his own death, but why? Their investigations (or should we say guessing) leads them to the conclusion that Elvis officially was an undercover agent of the FBI and he provided cover for another FBI agent who posed as one of his band members. Due to his help he received death treats and had to fake his own death as part of a Federal witness protection program.
Supposedly being alive the next question is, how would he support himself living in Kalamazoo and Germany? We could continue with more sentences starting with "supposedly" ... but we won't.
If you want to have a good laugh, get this DVD.
