above are the yardbirds (Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck) in the 1966 british-italian art film "blowup" directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. the film follows the story of a photographer who captures a photo with a murdered minister in the background. the song the yardbirds play is called "train kept a rollin'", but they had to change it to "stroll on" for copyright reasons. check out the scene and the threads in the scene.

below you'll find the steamy photoshoot scene in "blowup" featuring a very skinny Veruschka von Lehndorff. the scene is parodied in austin powers.
