Top dead earners

From the Forbes Rich and Deceased List, earnings since October last year:
1. Elvis Presley, $45 million
2. Charles M. Schulz, $35m (not peanuts)
3. John Lennon, $22 million
4. Andy Warhol, $16 million
5. Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, $10 million
6. Marlon Brando, $9 million
7. Marilyn Monroe and J. R. R. Tolkien, $8 million
8. George Harrison, Johnny Cash and Irving Berlin, $7 million
9. Bob Marley and Ray Charles, $6 million

When they're dead, the arty types out-earn the biz types.
