(6) Vintage color camera transparencies of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, copyrights included. Collection of (6) 2.25 x 2.25 in. color transparencies of The Beatles performing on the Ed Sullivan Show on August 14, 1965. This would mark the fourth and final time The Beatles would appear on the popular TV show. These rare images are some of the only known color images of this performance and happened to be taken on the last black and white broadcast of Sullivan's show. Images include, (2) of all four band members, (1) John Lennon (2) Paul McCartney. Images were captured during rehearsals and studio performance which included songs: "I Feel Fine", "I'm Down", "Act Naturally", "Ticket To Ride", "Yesterday" and "Help!" McCartney's performance of "Yesterday" was the first occasion of a Beatle performing solo in the US and Lennon forgot some of the lyrics to "Help!" Aug. 14th was also momentous as the day before the band kicked off their North American tour with a concert at Shea Stadium, which set attendance records for an outdoor show at that time. When the Ed Sullivan Show episode aired on September 12, 1965 the broadcast received a 60% share of the nighttime audience. In original "Easymount" cardboard frames in very good to fine condition. Sold with copyright.
