Elvis Presley Still World's Top Earning Dead Celebrity
October 29, 2008
Elvis Presley was the top earning dead celebrity in 2007, according to Forbes magazine.
Presley topped the list for the second year in a row thanks largely to the thousands of people who visited his Graceland estate to mark the 30th anniversary of his death.
The annual Forbes top-13 researched dead celebrities gross earnings from October 2007 to October 2008.
Australian actor Heath Ledger, who died of an overdose in January, was a new entry.
Ledger's role in Batman: The Dark Knight is thought to have earned the actor $20million over the last 12 months.
