“$750 is pretty chintzy”

On April 24, 1976, Lorne Michaels, producer of NBC’s Saturday Night, made an on-air offer of $3000 to The Beatles if they would re-unite and perform on the show.

“$750 is pretty chintzy,” George Harrison [said] to Lorne Michaels on an SNL episode, upon finding out he’d only get 1/4 of the $3,000.

Without further ado: Crackerbox Palace (prefaced by a short interview with George) from SNL Nov 30, 1976. Thanks, Zarathustra!
