When Elvis Met Nixon: Fighting Crimes and Sniffing Lines.

Before the likes of Starsky and Hutch, Batman and Robin, or even Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, there was an exceptionally iconic crime-fighting duo in the form of President Richard Nixon, and the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis Aaron Presley. On the 21st December 1970, the two stood together to take a picture together that turned out to be one of the most iconic photos in history. The image looks like a photoshopped joke or something out of a parallel universe where historic icons of the 20th century hang out together, but the picture is very much real.
