Each photograph with the stamp of photographer Alan Pappe, snipes identifying the photograph, and his manuscript annotations on the verso. Three photographs additionally signed by Pappe. Struck by Pappe circa 1990s, from his archive.

Pappe worked as a film still and press photographer for 30 years, photographing a who's who of film and music stars, including iconic images of Sharon Tate, Jimi Hendrix, and Liza Minnelli, as well as album cover for the "Grease" soundtrack album, and the interior images of Jefferson Airplane's "After Bathing at Baxter's." His 1972 "Time" magazine cover photograph of Minnelli in "Cabaret" is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

The Beatles' legendary 1967 masterwork is turned into a 1970s film musical, represented by a star-studded ensemble, with appearances by Donald Pleasence, George Burns (the only actor with speaking lines not accompanied by song), Steve Martin, Alice Cooper, Jack Bruce, Keith Carradine, Carol Channing, Donovan, Leif Garrett, Etta James, Dr. John, and music groups Aerosmith (as the "Future Villain Band") and Earth, Wind and Fire. The Fab Four are conceptually represented by Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees.
