1967 (text from the website):
Michelangelo Antonioni’s film 'Blow Up' was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on this day in 1967 - featuring David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Birkin, Veruschka and The Yardbirds. We weren’t invited to this premiere but queued up with everyone else outside a theatre in New York at a later date... though there was the added bonus that Veruschka was queuing in the same line!

The music used is from the soundtrack album. View film poster

Also on this day in 1996, Page and Plant was promoting Walking into Clarksdale and I played the Jools 'The Stools' Holland Show. We played 'Wanton Song', 'Shining in the Light' and 'Burning Up'.
