The film Yoko Ono doesn’t want you to seeBy
The film Yoko Ono doesn’t want you to see: “In a turn of events that is thoroughly timely and incredibly relevant to the struggles of today, Yoko Ono is apparently suing someone for control of documentary footage of John Lennon being, uh, John Lennon:
FOOTAGE of John Lennon smoking marijuana, writing songs and discussing putting the drug LSD in then US president Richard Nixon’s tea is the focus of a court case starting in Boston next week.
The case pits Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, against Massachusetts-based World Wide Video, which claims ownership of nine hours of raw footage of the former Beatle and Ono, which was filmed just weeks before the band broke up in 1970.
Naturally this footage is going to SHOCK THE ENTIRE WORLD if it gets out, so of course Ono is on a rampage to prevent screening it. After all, no one EVER suspected Lennon of smoking marijuana, for heaven’s sake. And slipping LSD into Nixon’s tea? WHAT WOULD THE CHILDREN THINK? We all know that would be a waste of good LSD, which clearly means Lennon was out of his mind. (He was probably saving the acid to spike McCartney’s tea.)”
