Random pseudo-celebrities of 1978
How many can you spot from this final scene of the classic film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band? Beebo and I caught the end of this movie in hi-definition last weekend. Aren't you jealous?
The massed celebrities start showing up after the part where Billy Preston is hoisted around on a wire while wearing a gold lamé uniform. There's 60 or so of them, standing on bleachers, singing and doing a sort of swaying dance move that must have taken all of five minutes to learn. I remember reading about how awesome this ensemble was in Pizzazz magazine before I saw the film, and it really delivers. Who wouldn't get excited about seeing Wolfman Jack, Carol Channing, and Bowzer in the same place?
