Yoko Ono: Film No. 4 (Bottoms) [1966]


This was very radical stuff back when Yoko debuted “Bottoms.” The world was a different place back in 1966.

Click through to the official Yoko Flickr page (just push the tush) and read all about it!

I’ve just become Yoko’s Facebook friend, and am enjoying it tremendously. Highly recommend it for all you John and Yoko fans.

  1. Not only did you tug my nostalgia gene, but you also made me howl with laughter in remembrance of a postcard I got years ago with this very butt with a “smilie” face superimposed onto it; a dot on each cheek and the grin on… well, you get the drift.. ;>

  2. So funny. I remember seeing this film in college. It was a midnight film fest. Smoky old theater, bad b&w print. I remember it being very, very long, with no beginning, but lots of ENDS!

  4. I was 22 and living in London in 1967 and I remember everyone talking about this Film No. 4 and I somehow managed to get invited to the premier, Yoko was going to be there too, maybe John! It’s true the 60s were a wonderful time of experimentation and with that always a bit of humor, lots and lots of color and we seldom took ourselves so seriously that we would get in each other’s way of enjoying one another. I’ll never forget this wonderful film, Yoko said that we smiled with our bottom and that was a more realistic insight into our real selves because we cannot consciously control our bottom’s smile. After the movie she gave a short talk, most of the people who were there were friends of hers, I don’t think John was there but he might have been and no one knew it, this was before Yoko and John married. As we all filed out of the room Yoko hugged and kissed each and everyone as they left. It was a beautiful event. There was a brochure handed out about the film, I still have one. I only saw Film No. 4 that one time but I would love to see it again. Is it available, can I down load it?
