It's just days after The Beatles' historic, ratings record-shattering appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and, to celebrate, they had a fun photo shoot with their favorite boxer Cassius Clay, who was coming up on his big title fight with the champion, Sonny Liston. There they are, posing and goofing around with the man who would become Muhammed Ali, 5 up-and-coming stars about to change the world. We're sure no one in the room really grasped just how huge of a moment this was. ♫
