  1. Considering that **La Jetée** is entirely a work of avant-garde photomontage, I wonder if Robert Freeman, who shot that Beatles’ cover, was especially drawn to watching Chris Marker’s film, given that it was assembled using still photographs, which certainly would have been of special interest to him. And when Freeman saw the image of the “Four people from the future” in the film, he stuck it away in his memory (perhaps subconsciously), only to soon draw upon it when doing the Album Cover Shoot.
