Meanwhile, in a universe far away from Jackie Collins, there's this 1971 video.

We watch John Lennon and Yoko Ono play dress up and pad around one of their palatial estates, acting out surreal Ingmar Bergman parlor games in what looks like an arty home movie. Of course most people don't have a helicopter to make their shots more panoramic, nor do the likes of Andy Warhol and Miles Davis haunt their backyard barbecues.

The image that seems most apropos is watching Yoko and John write their names in the sand at a Staten Island beach and having the waves soon erase them. The era and the attitude of this video seem so very far away now. On Oct. 9, Lennon would have turned 50.
