Ticker Tape Lighters for McCartney and Harrison
Ticker Tape Lighters for McCartney and Harrison

The United Artist "wrap" party for the 1965 movie Help! featured a luau. One of the items distributed as gifts to The Beatles at the party were "ticker tape lighters." These novelty lighters that resembled ticker tape machines were produced in Japan starting in the late 50s. These two ticker tape lighters are screw-mounted on black metal bases. One base has a plaque that reads "U.A. Help Luau Paul McCartney," and the other reads "U.A. Help Luau George Harrison." Each lighter is enclosed in a dome-shaped glass globe. The ticker tape paper remains intact on the George Harrison lighter. Perhaps ticker tape lighters were chosen as a reference to a scene in the movie where George embraces a ticker tape machine. He was known as the Beatle who loved money the most. Lighter: 3 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2, Dome/Base Height: 5 1/2
