John Lennon with Nothing Box, 1965

By Brian Duffy
About the image
John Lennon looks at the camera with that familiar wry smile, having just had his teeth done in the United States, in this shot from 1965.  

While in the US (presumably) he purchased several "Nothing Boxes" from inventor and associate Magic Alex, one of which is also featured here.  These boxes did just as they promised, nothing.  Other than blink of course, until their battery ran out.

The Beatles released, Help!, the soundtrack from their film of the same name, that same year, featuring the iconic singles "Ticket to Ride" and "Yesterday."
