Most of the fans were girls." This photo is not most interesting because it's the only documentation of folk singers ever being rushed, or even because there was ever a group of, mostly, girls who found Sonny attractive, but because the teen boy in the front left is transforming into a werewolf and the photographer fails to mention it in the caption.

The photo is from the endlessly fascinating collection of Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Daily News photographes at the UCLA Library Digital Collection.
