Scenes I Love: Steve Martin performs Maxwell’s Silver Hammer in Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band


Today, the Shattered Lens wishes actor and comedian Steve Martin a happy 77th birthday.  Originally from Texas, Martin has been a cultural mainstay for longer than I’ve been alive.  He’s a master of both comedy and drama, as anyone who has watched Only Murders In The Building can tell you.

And he can sing too!

Here he is, performing Maxwell’s Silver Hammer in 1978’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  Though this was not Martin’s film debut, it was his first “big” role.  Steve Martin was 33 years old here.  Remarkably, he only seems to have aged a few years in the decades since appearing in this film.

Happy birthday, Steve Martin!

  1. This is a unique choice to celebrate him, as the film doesn’t have a good reputation – but it shows how he can turn anything into a memorable moment! Cheers to him!
