Fans of Elvis Presley are currently celebrating Elvis Week. This memorial is held every year to commemorate the King of Rock and Roll who died 45 years ago on August 16, 1977, at his Graceland home.
However, once Elvis died, theories began to surface suggesting that he was still alive all along.
There were several reports that the king was seen “boarding a jet” on the day of his funeral at the Memphis airport.
Since then, “sightings” have been reported over the years. But the king’s most obscure sighting was during the 1990 Christmas movie Home Alone.
The theory arrived during the scene where Kevin’s mother, Kate (Catherine O’Hara), was yelling at the airport about her missing child.
Just behind her stood a man who looked exactly like Elvis Presley.

The extra bears a ghostly resemblance to the king, down to his strong jaw and coiffed haircut.
However, there are some differences. The star sported a beard all over his face, giving him a “disguised” look.
Years after this theory made headlines, he suggested that Elvis instead go into hiding before becoming an extra.
The director of the film spoke candidly about this apparent Elvis appearance. Christopher Columbus said: “They are convinced, these people, that this is Elvis Presley. That he faked his death, and because he still loves show business, he is an extra on Home Alone… Look at this man, he’s not Elvis Presley!”

Julio said, “In that regard, I wouldn’t reject the Elvis theory. I have to tell you, I’m a cameraman and I’ve shot a lot of stuff.”
He added: “I once did an infrared film for a movie called Blind Dating, with Chris Pine. So I was filming infrared film in this park, and this figure of a boy dressed in 19th century clothes, photographed in the photo. And I can assure you with 100 percent accuracy that no one was there, because when I shot the shot I wanted the quietness of nothing in the shot, I just wanted it to be clear, no one was there.”
He added: “I’m shooting it with infrared film and there’s a kid running across the street dressed in these Victorian clothes running through the park.”
Julio noted that, if this ghostly sight was possible, it was Elvis’s return, too, 13 years after his death.
He added: “If Elvis was in the background in that shot, I wouldn’t dismiss him, I wouldn’t ignore that possibility. If I took that shot with infrared film, he’s probably there.”
Home Alone is now available to watch on Disney Plus.
