This piece by Adrienne Aurichio is part of a series of essays to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first American television appearance on CBS’s “The Ed Sullivan Show.” It culminates with CBS News, 50 Years Later…The Beatles at The Ed Sullivan Theater: Presented by Motown The Musical, a live, interactive multimedia event at The Ed Sullivan Theater on Feb. 9.
I phoned Bill to ask about the photograph. He was very nonchalant – it was no big deal. I, on the other hand, still remembered watching the Ed Sullivan showon a Sunday night in 1964 and hearing the screaming audience as the Beatles played “She Loves You.” The Beatles made an impression on me even though I was only nine.
Bill told me how he had turned in his film to the Time Life lab after spending those six days with The Beatles, traveling from New York to Washington, D.C., and back. He made pictures as they happened, never staging anything.
Adrienne Aurichio is co-editor of “The Beatles: Six Days That Changed the World” (Rizzoli), which features the best of Bill Eppridge’s photographs from February 7 – 12, 1964. In his acknowledgments, Mr. Eppridge wrote, “I owe so much to my wife and editor, Adrienne Aurichio, who spent weeks going through the three thousand images on ninety rolls of film to piece together my story. I relied on her vision and experience as an editor to research and unravel the photographs, and then pull them together in chronological order.” Mr. Eppridge died October 3, 2013. A successful photojournalist his entire career, he is perhaps best known for his photograph of the dying Robert F. Kennedy, taken June 6, 1968.
