In this delightful photograph Mick Jagger is seen feigning sleep on a day bed in a hotel room when his face is shown in the rebroadcast of The Rolling Stones appearance on The Red Skelton Show on November 10th, 1964.
The segment had been filmed at the London Palladium in August and then shown on TV in the U.S. in September when the Stones were not in the U.S. Fortunately the show was rebroadcast in November when the Stones were in Chicago recording at Chess Studios.
The black and white images from the Bob Bonis Archive are custom silver gelatin prints, printed to order by the master printers at Duggal in New York. They are printed on double weight archival fibre paper and then selenium toned (an archival toning process) to increase the tonal range and ensure longevity. The term silver gelatin print is derived from the gelatin emulsion in the photographic paper, which contains light-sensitive silver salts that react to light exposure.
