In 1978, the movie “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” came out, and the makers hosted a movie party to celebrate this achievement. Of course, since the movie was about a rock band trying to get its claim to fame, it was only natural for the band members of Aerosmith to be in attendance at the party.
It’s quite clear from the picture that there was certainly no shortage of drinks at this event! The exclusive event was held at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel in California. Much like the St. Regis in New York, the Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills is also known to host Hollywood’s A-listers through all the events that it has hosted over the years.
"The Goodbye People" Opening Party
For those of you who don't know - "The Goodbye People" was a play by playwright and screenwriter Herbert Gardner. The production had a quick run on Broadway's stages in 1968 and was even made into a film that was released in 1986.
In attendance at this opening party in New York was a whole bunch of America's creative A-listers at the time, including Carrie Fisher, known for her role in the iconic "Star Wars" saga, Paul Simon from the revered band Simon and Garfunkel, and Tom Schiller, a famous American writer. This party was clearly a mixed bag of celebrities who all came from different backgrounds in their careers but who all had one common goal: to party!
Elton John Partying It Up with His Fellow Coworkers
As we have seen before, Elton John loved to attend a good party in his heyday. He and a bunch of his friends seem to be swinging Neil Sedaka around and have got him in the air by his feet. At this 1975 party in London, Bernie Taupin is also present, who is still to this day a music collaborator with Elton John.
Taupin is most well known for his songwriting partnership that he has with Elton John. The two have been making music together since 1967, so of course, they have every good reason to throw a good old bash together.
Al Pacino at the Tony Awards
If there is an event to award and commemorate live Broadway theatre shows, it is the Tony Awards, also known as The Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Broadway Theatre. Every year, the ceremony is held in Manhattan, and in this picture of 1974, the event was attended by none other than Al Pacino.
You may be wondering who invited Al Pacino to the party since he is mostly known for his role in "The Godfather," but it turns out he has actually appeared in 12 Broadway shows and has even won two Tony Awards himself. On this night, he was one of the presenters, along with Marlo Thomas, the legendary actress and activist among a whole bunch of Hollywood A-listers.
A Night Out with the Stars
Here is more proof that Arnold Schwarzenegger liked to go out on the town in the 70s. This picture was taken in the summer of 1978 at the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan, New York. This prestigious hotel has always been known to host, firstly, a lot of famous people and, secondly, highly exclusive events.
The singer Eartha Kitt, otherwise known as Mother Eartha, has definitely dressed to impress with her stunning all-white attire and the massive grin on her face. Singer and songwriter Billy Manilow also looks dapper in his disco attire and his whole "I wear sunglasses at night" look. Ah, what it must have been like to attend parties with the stars in the 70s.
