Elvis was here.His limo idled outside in the apartment's parking lot, now filled with the bumper-stickered compact cars of techno types ("If this were an F-16, we'd be home by now"; "My other car is a jet"). He walked through the doorway with its teddy bear welcome mat, visited the bathroom with the poodle picture on the wall and seemed to appreciate the utter normalcy of it all."You've made a beautiful home here, Joyce," said the man from that monument to Southern Baroque, Graceland.Joyce Bova still lives here, in an apartment-gone-condo complex in one of those Washington suburbs that is home to so many of the busy worker bees who, mostly anonymously, keep the federal government churning along.

LOS ANGELES - With its nearby horse trails and lovely, secluded grounds, Lisa Marie Presley's five-acre spread on the western edge of Southern California's San Fernando Valley is so relaxing it invites the imagination to run free. It's easy to picture Elvis himself strolling the property with his two grandchildren. Rock's greatest star would have turned 70 this year and, no matter how much he loved the concert stage, he surely would have settled into seclusion by now - preferring the company of his daughter and her family to singing "Hound Dog" one more time to the AARP crowd.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Elvis was spotted last month in the home of an Anchorage couple who claim they found an unpublished negative of the King among long-forgotten family photos. So, fire up the '59 Caddy; it's now or never to pick up a Presley print."When I looked at the negative, I thought, 'Well, if this is what I think it is, hallelujah!' " Julie Waites said of her discovery while housecleaning last month. "It's highly possible that it's a one-of-a-kind, unpublished photo. We've sent faxes of it to Graceland and to museums and Priscilla Presley, but we haven't heard anything back yet."

WE KNOW we are on sure comic ground when ''The Naked Gun 2 1/2 : The Smell of Fear'' is introduced as ''une film de David Zucker.''The new comedy, a sequel to the 1988 ''Naked Gun: From the Files of the Police Squad,'' is, if memory serves, about as funny as the original film. It hits far more than it misses. It is most of the physical business that misses. The movie could easily do without the physical humor, but then we'd have only a 60-minute film, and that wouldn't do. Thankfully, the wordplay is good.

"While much is too strange to be believed, nothing is to strange to have happened."That is a quotation from Thomas Hardy. And I ask you to keep it in mind as you read the following.I admit that much of what I am about to tell you is too strange to be believed. But all of it happened:It is last Thursday night (actually Friday morning) at 1:05 a.m. EST and I am switching between "Letterman" on NBC and "Viva Las Vegas" on TNT.I am not watching much of "Viva Las Vegas," however, because I have seen it several times and, let's be honest, it is no "King Creole."

IT IS ONE of the great oddities of pop culture.The official White House photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Elvis Presley in 1970 remains the most requested picture from the archives of the Library of Congress, a postcard from the outer vestibule of weird.It shows the business-suited Nixon, a tight smile wired across his face, gripping palms with a bleary-eyed King of Rock and Roll, the high-collar of Presley's shirt lapping over a black jacket draped across his shoulders, a gold belt buckle above his fabled TC pelvis gleaming like a giant waffle.

"Naked Gun 33 1/3 : The Final Insult" is stupider and meaner than the first two films in the very funny series, and it's also shorter. When you walk out, you think: "That was a pretty long trailer. I wonder what the movie will be like."Does all this bespeak a certain creative exhaustion? Ennui, anyone? Lethargy, sloth, lassitude, decrepitude, obsolescence? Let's put it this way: When you're reduced to yanking the wig off Pia Zadora's head for laughs, it's a pretty good bet Oscar Wilde isn't your screenwriter.

Presley was pulled over for speeding on Christmas Eve, 1954; in 1971, he spent that day in his podiatrist's office. On Christmas 1958, Elvis sang his Army buddies a version of "Silent Night" as they put up the Company tree. That same year, his manager, Col. Tom Parker, sent to members of the Elvis fan club a card with a picture of Elvis in his Army uniform (and Parker dressed as Santa Claus). Priscilla's first Christmas present to Elvis, in 1959, was a set of bongo drums. Three years later, she gave him a cigarette box that played the tune to "Surrender.
