George Lucas’s “Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope” was the first installment of what would go on to be the original “Star Wars” series. You know the one? It’s only a worldwide phenomenon with new story arcs emerging in film, animation, and video games to this day. The star-studded film included Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher and focussed on the Rebel Alliance, led by Princess Leia, and its attempt to destroy the Death Star.
This photo was taken during its grand opening day at Leicester Square Theatre in London in 1977. Apparently, moviegoers were too excited to witness entertainment at its finest and were willing to form a queue just to watch the highly-anticipated film and their favorite stars.
George Harrison, John Lennon & Billy Preston For The "Get Back" Project
Just like any band, The Beatles had their share of tension and anxiety. Back in January of 1969, the iconic band seemed to not get along well with each other. Hostility was evident over Yoko Ono allegedly taking advantage of the group and Paul McCartney was being tagged as “bossing” the group around. It was a good thing that an old friend, in the form of Billy Preston, stepped in.
The Beatles were all huge fans of Preston. In fact, George Harrison and Preston had a deep friendship, and having him around was a big blessing. When Harrison invited Preston to play with the band on the "Get Back" project, it was a collaborative success music-wise, and of course, their relationship with each other professionally and personally.
John Stamos And His Prom Date
This photo is legit evidence that John Stamos is vain (we’re kidding, of course). Look how he intended to have a twinning hairstyle with his prom date back in 1981. More than a handsome face, Stamos is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. His stellar performance as Blackie Parrish on the TV series, "General Hospital," earned him a nomination for Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor.
He also starred as Jesse Katsopolis on the sitcom, "Full House," as Dr. Tony Gates on the medical drama, "ER," and as Albert in the revival of "Bye Bye Birdie." He also served as a producer of the Netflix series, "Fuller House." What can’t John Stamos do?
David Bowie Modeling With Jan De Souza
David Robert Jones, better known as David Bowie, is photographed here modeling the designs of John Stephen with Jan De Souza. The shot was taken by photographer, Fiona Adams, for a British Pop Music magazine back in 1965. Bowie was considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century for his eccentric stage presence and unique music. The world was rocked by his death in 2016.
In the United Kingdom, he was awarded ten platinum, 11 gold, and eight silver album certifications. In the United States, he earned five platinum and nine gold certifications. By 1996, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Such an impressive music portfolio.
Stallone and Butkus
A week before Sylvester Stallone was able to sell his script for the first "Rocky" movie, he was a nobody — pretty desperate and strapped for cash. So much so, that as a last-resort kind of act, he sold his huge Bull Mastiff, Butkus to a random guy named Little Jimmy. He walked away crying and heartbroken and swore that he would return to buy it back the second he could.
Luckily, that wasn't very long after. The following week, he sold the script for an unbelievable sum of one million dollars and set out to keep his promise. Little Jimmy, however, bargained, and Butkus was bought back by his original owner for no less than 3,000 dollars.
