I love this photo. I wonder what he’s focusing on. Or, I suppose he could be signing it, since his right hand isn’t visible.

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!

George Harrison is believed to have forged all the signatures of the Beatles to make a dying fan’s wish come true.

The report emerged after an autographed picture of  the band was sold at Keys auctioneers in Aylsham, Norfolk on Friday.

It was donated by Harry Bartlett, of Rickinghall, Suffolk, whose daughter Ann received  the photograph shortly before her death in the late 1960s at the age of 16.

Andrew Bullock of Keys said it was thought Harrison had copied the signatures of his fellow band members – Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon.

‘We’ve sent it to a handwriting expert and it’s just about 100 per cent certain that they were done by George,’ he said.

‘There are quite a few photographs in existence with autographs that were all signed by George. He got quite good at doing it.

‘In this case, where you have got this poor girl who is terminally ill, he was probably aware of the situation and thought he should get it sent off as soon as possible.

‘That adds a certain something and is actually quite nice.’

The lot, which also included a signed photograph of Harrison, sold for ÂŁ1,300 to an anonymous telephone bidder.

Proceeds from the sale will go towards leukemia research at the University of East Anglia.
