But what did she do to disturb the peace? shrug   Can't find details anywhere. Only headlines that she was arrested.

As recent as 1996 ??  surprised  confused.

Don't those scientist guys ever read?  tongue    As far back as the 1950's people have had 'evidence' of life on Mars.  Rolling Eyes Neutral rabbit drunken

Oh, dearie dearie me .....  I've just watched that video through (the one I put up in the previous post) and only just realised what the "What if ..."  title is all about.  Rolling Eyes   (Takes all kinds)   cheesy  rabbit

Also just read the comment that the publisher of the video has written too:
Published on 24 Jun 2015

In 2012, I filmed the movie "Elvis What If". Since that time it seems like a certain company (that I will not name here), and other companies owned by that nameless corporation, have done everything possible to stop the fans from seeing this film. It didn't work. And that is thanks to people like you watching and sharing the film. I also noticed that shortly after it became obvious that my movie wasn't going to be shoved away in a corner another, more mainstream, movie was released that also proposed a different account of history in the "Elvis world". You may have seen it. It's called "The Identical". If you've seen both "Elvis: What If?" and "The Identical" then you know that they present drastically different possibilities for you to consider. I'm not going to say which account (if any) is the actual, true, historically correct one. I've always left that up to you to make up your own minds after seeing what I found. I will say that the timing of the release of "The Identical", which presents a much more "corporately acceptable" version of history, has always seemed a little "fishy" to me. Again, you can make up your own minds on that one too.

Anyway... I never imagined the impact that my little ole' "No Budget" film would have both on the Elvis community and in the halls of corporate America. So on advice from people I trust I've decided that I should take another look at my film and make it something that I think is worthy of all the attention it's gotten.

You can now take a look at the new version of "Elvis: What If?" here...I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know what you think of it now!

Thanks,
Icizzle
