Elvis: Highest Earning dead celebrity


Elvis Presley Estate's $49 million in revenue in the past year was enough to push the performer to the top of Forbes.com's list for top-earning dead celebrities. Presley was followed by Beatle John Lennon, whose 2007 earnings were $44 million; cartoonist Charles Schulz who pulled in $35 million; Beatle George Harrison who earned $22 million; and scientist Albert Einstein, who died in 1955, earned $18 million.
