One of the notables of BILL CUNNINGHAM’s career was working as a stunt man in several of the Frankie Avalon-Annette Funicello beach movies in the 60s, as well as being Avalon’s personal trainer. This led him to star on the cover of the famous album “Muscle Beach Party” in 1964, alongside Peter Lupus who gained fame with the “Mission Impossible” TV series. “She was a beautiful gal”, says Bill of Funicello, “and we spent two days shooting. She loved Peter and my shots and so we ended up on the most famous album cover of that era, carrying her on our shoulders.”
