Funny Face!

Great. Now I can’t remember the full story behind this, but I’ll do my best.

British Eastern Airlines (or is it Airways) had four cutout blank Beatle faces on the inside door of a plane in which the Beatles were traveling. Given the length of this “George” cutout’s hair, I am guessing it was 1966. The cutouts were taken down and the Beatles were asked to autograph them (it might have been for charity, but now I can’t find the blasted article) any way they wished. George drew this hilarious face and signed his chin. 🙂

Attention! Dear sweet “Letitbeatles” on Twitter gave me the original link I had lost. Thank you!

    There i found it
    In celebration of the celebrity of its passengers, the door to the TWA 707 carrying the Beatles was adorned with these paper cutouts representing the Fab Four. At this point in their career, the Beatles phenomenon was in full swing; their every move was tracked by millions of fans and a transfixed press. Featured in these lot are the autographed paper heads of George, Paul, and John. The cutouts, as originally made, featured only the mop-top hairstyles atop a blank white face – it was up to each Beatle to fill in the blank space with their own individual expression. Each head is autographed by the respective Beatle in a thick black marker.

    Though often comparatively quiet and introspective, George Harrison could crack-wise and enjoyed a good laugh. He drew himself as smiling with laughing eyes and a pointy-nose. He has signed the “chin” neatly in bold cursive letters.
