ORION PICTURES – MUCH OF THE MATERIAL ORIGINATED FROM ME
MUCH OF THE ORION PICTURES EVIDENCE POINTING TO ELVIS’S INVOLVEMENT POST 1977 WAS FOUND AND SHARED BY ME. SO, I AM TO BLAME OR CREDIT FOR IT. DEPENDING ON EACH INDIVIDUAL’S SLANT ON THINGS.
This following question and answer, regarding the Orion Pictures material, from an interview between EIN and Phil Aitcheson prompted me to speak up.
I wish to make it perfectly clear that there is NO connection between me and The Presley Commission nor Mr. Aitcheson.
Also, I want to make it clear that I have NEVER said that Elvis appeared in any movie whatsoever. Those claims stem from others and not from me. Rather my movie material indicating that Elvis is involved behind the scenes is substantiated by company credits, crew credits, topics in plots, Elvis music used in the movies, Elvis’ friends appearing in movie or in credits, etc.
EIN: The whole Orion conspiracy thing appeared to get out of hand with theorists moving the goalposts beyond the singer Orion, and seeing Elvis connections in films released by the Orion Pictures organisation. To many disbelievers it seemed that all rational thinking had flown out the door and an ‘anything goes, conspiracy driven’ utopian mentality had taken over. What is your response to this perspective?
PA: The Commission was informed some years back about the “alleged” appearances in movies. Admittedly they do possess a certain air of mystery about such possibilities. More importantly, a recent appearance in another film, “Finding Graceland”, was examined. The subject was also discussed extensively in Gail Giorgio’s book, ‘Elvis Undercover’. Consideration was given to all reports.
I want to set the record straight about the much maligned Orion Pictures and Elvis material which I found and reported…with accompanying evidence to back up what I reported.
Beginning back in 1988, I followed a trail of circumstances and events which led me to believe that Elvis was involved with Orion the singer and from there left us a trail to his endeavor with the movie Industry…through Orion Pictures.
Before I published my newsletter beginning in July, 1990, I compiled a report consisting of all of the instances of Orion Pictures correlating to things “Elvis“…also tying into the Jerry Lee Lewis connection to Orion the singer and then leading from the singer over to Orion Pictures.
There was a trail of events which led up to Elvis’ culmination of his association with Orion the singer in the form of the album titled “The Killer, The King” in 1982.
