Snapshots: Tommy Roe upstaged in U.K. by The Beatles

Ian Wright’s portrait of Tommy Roe was taken backstage at The Globe Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees, England, on Saturday, Feb. 13, 1965, where he was appearing on “The Cilla Black Show.” Tommy told Wright, “That matinee idol pose was my James Dean look. Just after you took that picture, I was told to lighten up and smile more by the publicity department.” (Ian Wright)
