The purpose of the visit was for Harrison to make a guest appearance in Ravi Shankar’s film Raga. The scene was filmed on 10 and 11 June in Big Sur, but the party stayed in Monterey during their visit.
The film was originally made under the working title East Meets West, and later known as Messenger Out Of The East before the eventual title was settled upon.
