Elvis Has Left the Building is a 2004 film directed by Joel Zwick and starring Kim Basinger as a cosmetics saleswoman who accidentally serially kills Elvis impersonators as they travel to a convention in Las Vegas.[1] John Corbett plays an advertising executive and her love interest. Tom Hanks has a seconds-long cameo appearance as the dead "Mailbox Head" Elvis impersonator. Angie Dickinson plays Harmony's Mom who was once Elvis' mechanic in the film.

Plot[edit]

The film opens with Harmony (Basinger) driving down a long, winding road, the sounds of Elvis playing all around her. She feels that her life is empty and artificial. She is a traveling cosmetic saleswoman, setting up "Pink Lady" training seminars in the western portion of the United States. When she is asked if she's "one of those Mary Kaye ladies?", she replies, "No, we're pink, they're more salmon." While she is popular and successful selling "Pink Lady," there is nothing real or honest in her life.

As Harmony travels around the country, trying to figure out what is missing from her life, Elvis impersonators keep dying in her wake. She is romantically pursued by Miles (Corbett).
