Video: Bob Dylan & Donovan, 1965


An infamous — yet debatable — scene from Don’t Look Back, in which Dylan and the so-called “Scottish Dylan” playfully spar via folk song backstage in London.

Despite appearances, there’s a lot going on here, from Bob’s brilliant deal with the Devil ambition, to the Beat-inspired entourage, to Donovan’s priceless cigarette drag. Analyze at will or just let it be. Either way, it’s something to see.
