The New York Times has just published a series of photographs taken in the ’70s by Kenneth Siegel, courtesy of the Collection of New York Historical Society.
Most are wonderful photos of everyday passers-by at Times Square, but a few capture the original cast from Saturday Night Live walking around after filming. And they are great.
This one is of John Belushi hanging out with some friendly cops:
This one is of Bill Murray using his belly button as a mouth to entertain Gilda Radner:
And this one is of a bunch of them — Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Laraine Newman, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris wand Bill Murray — eating souvlaki.
Apparently those table manners weren’t a huge stretch for Belushi when he was playing Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers.
For the full gallery of photos, including a few captions from an SNL writer and a talent agent, head over to New York Times.
