Fans around the world will mark Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday Friday.

And the publicity will help boost Elvis-related sales by millions of dollars.

The King ranked fourth on this year’s Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities, with estimated revenues of $55 million in 2009. (Number 1 was Yves Saint Laurent, followed by Rodgers & Hammerstein and Michael Jackson.)

Elvis revenues are generated not only from recordings, but from admissions to Graceland and Elvis-themed products, including a Jailhouse Rock Barbie doll.

Elvis died of a heart attack on Aug. 16, 1977.
