    Saturday Night Live spoofs The Chi-Lites and other sweet soul groups, 1978: Garrett Morris, Bill Murray, Michael Palin, Dan Aykroyd. In his memoirs Palin details the painstaking choreography and rehearsals the cast went through for for this sketch. All for nought -- the bit was cut from the final broadcast before airtime.

    Whose face has been cut off at the left? Carry Grant?

    Amongst other highlights - Harpo giving his leg to Margaret Dumont and Peter Sellers eating chips/fries...

    That picture of a dead Clyde above is amazing. The pipe in director's mouth adds to the whole surrealness (if there is such a word).

    It's from Grand Prix - that's John Frankenheimer with the pipe.

    The Rosemary's baby shot is a Willoughby. I have a photo of that scene being actually shot. Very cramped quarters, multiple people on the bed, the camera literally inches from Farrow's nose.

    What exactly is a Willoughby (other than a place where you can "slow down to a walk and live life to its fullest")?

    he was a famous photographer who did a lot of behind the scenes shooting on 'big' movies in the 50's and 60's.

    Thanks, Ed! The picture of Mrs. Roosevelt with all the stars (including Laurel and Hardy!) is wonderful. It literally almost brought a tear to my eye to see so much talent gathering at the White House to support their country and the soldiers who were giving their all in WW II.

    I read about that in Michael Palin's diary book, wish I could see/hear it...

    I tried enlarging the picture but the resolution wasn't strong enough. The easy ones to spot besides Stan and Babe are Charlotte Greenwood, Cagney, Pat O'Brien, Hope, Bert Lahr, Jerry Collonna, Claudette Colbert. The guy to the left of Hope looks a bit like Cary Grant but I can't tell for certain. I'm sure Google would offer more names.
