The final scene in Full Metal Jacket has the battle hardened Marines singing the theme to "The Mickey Mouse Club". Strangelove", have elements of black humor in them.
Preferred mono sound over stereo. Only three of his movies - Spartacus , A Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut - were originally done in stereo sound.
For example, A Clockwork Orange shows Alex Malcolm McDowell as a sadistic rapist and murderer in the first half of the film and a mind-controlled guinea pig in the second half.
In Eyes Wide Shut , Bill Tom Cruise travels amidst sexual temptation in New York at night in the first half of the film and rude awakenings during the day in the second half.
Almost all of his films involve a plan that goes horribly wrong. Frequently uses strong primary colors in his cinematography and sharp contrast between black and white.
Slow-paced dialogue; often had actors pause several beats between line delivery. Also, rarely if ever did his dialogue overlap.
Often cast Peter Sellers , Kirk Douglas , and Philip Stone. Starting with Lolita , each film has at least one scene in a bathroom.
He wanted to make a film based on Umberto Eco 's novel "Foucault's Pendulum" which appeared in Unfortunately, Eco refused, as he was dissatisfied with the filming of his earlier novel The Name of the Rose and also because Kubrick wasn't willing to let him write the screenplay himself.
Planned to direct a film called "I Stole 16 Million Dollars" based on notorious s bank robber Willie Sutton.
It was to be made by Kirk Douglas ' Bryna production company, but Douglas thought the script was poorly written. Kubrick tried to get Cary Grant interested, which must have proved to be a failure as well, since the film was never made.
Rarely gave interviews. He did, however, appear in a documentary made by his daughter Vivian Kubrick shot during the making of The Shining According to Vivian, he was planning on doing a few formal TV interviews once Eyes Wide Shut was released, but died before he could.
He had a well-known fear of flying, but he had to fly quite often early in his career. Because of his hysteria on planes, he simply tried to lessen the amount of times he flew.
According to Malcolm McDowell , Kubrick listened to air traffic controllers at Heathrow Airport for long stretches of time, and he advised McDowell never to fly.
Refused to talk about his movies on set as he was directing them and never watched them when they were completed. The controversy around A Clockwork Orange 's UK release was so strong that Kubrick was flooded with angry letters and protesters were showing up at his home, demanding that the film never be shown in England again.
He personally petitioned the studio to pull it from theaters, despite his legal inability to control a film after production.
The studio, out of respect for Kubrick, eventually decided to pull the film out of theaters prematurely. His next project after Eyes Wide Shut was to be A.
Artificial Intelligence , which was taken over by Steven Spielberg. It is dedicated to Kubrick's memory. His dislike of his early film Fear and Desire is well known.
He went out of his way to buy all the prints of it so no one else could see it. In addition to The Seafarers shot for the Seafarers International Union , he may have directed another commissioned project in the early fifties, "World Assembly of Youth," for the United Nations, documenting a UN-sponsored gathering in New York City of young people from throughout the world.
No copy of the film has been found and it has never been conclusively proven that it even existed in the first place as with "The Seafarers," Kubrick never publicly acknowledged it.
The only author that Kubrick worked with personally was Arthur C. Clarke for A Space Odyssey Loved the work of Franz Kafka , H.
Lovecraft , Carlos Saura , Max Ophüls , Woody Allen and Edgar Reitz esp. Heimat - Eine Chronik in elf Teilen , among many others. Was voted the 23rd Greatest Director of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
He was the least prolific director on this list, having made only 16 films over the course of a 48 year career. Kubrick's favorite pastime was chess and he was said to be a master at it.
Many crew members and actors found themselves on the losing end of chess matches with him. People would come to his door looking for him, and as few people knew what he looked like, he would tell them that "Stanley Kubrick wasn't home.
Had an extensive and rich friendship with Malcolm McDowell during the filming of A Clockwork Orange After filming ended, Kubrick never contacted him again.
Often read about psychology, and knew how to manipulate his cast quite well. A fine example of this is with Shelley Duvall in The Shining He reportedly briefly considered leaving England for either Vancouver, Canada or Sydney, Australia.
He was so reclusive that the press would make up wild stories about him. One such story was that he shot a fan on his property, and then shot him again for bleeding on the grass.
According to his wife Christiane Kubrick , he would screen every movie he could get ahold of. One of his favorites was The Jerk He considered making Eyes Wide Shut a dark sex comedy with Steve Martin in the lead.
He even met with Martin to discuss the project. He was a big fan of American sitcoms Seinfeld , Roseanne and The Simpsons He was also a fan of American football and would have his friends in America tape games and send them to him.
In addition to being a sports fan, he was fascinated by the craft of television commercials. He was particularly impressed by how they could effectively tell a story in 30 seconds.
According to his close friend Michael Herr , he watched The Godfather over ten times and said it was probably the greatest film ever made. He considered Elia Kazan the best American director of all time.
Daniel Waters wrote the original page screenplay for Heathers intending for Kubrick to direct it, as he believed Kubrick was the only director who could get away with making a three-hour high school film.
Kubrick wasn't interested, and when the film was made the screenplay was cut nearly in half, resulting in a minute film. Was a lackadaisical student with grades near the bottom of his class.
According to a biography, Kubrick's wife finally convinced him once to take what she considered a long-overdue vacation.
While vacationing, she noticed he was taking copious notes about something. When asked what he was writing, she discovered he was jotting some ideas down about a film project!
He was considered to be a well-read man with an extreme attention to detail. Kubrick read them all and astonished his associates with his level of retention.
When working on a battlefield scene, he even examined an historical painting of the battle so he could note exactly what the weather was in the painting and make sure to film the battle on a day with similar weather patterns.
Although he never enrolled, he would sit in during classes at Columbia University. According to biographer Michael Herr , Kubrick was often noted for wanting to stick to each word of dialogue without changing it or an actor adding lines of his own.
The two exceptions were Peter Sellers with whom he worked on Lolita and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and R.
Lee Ermey from Full Metal Jacket Seven of his last nine films were nominated for Oscars. He was nominated for Best Director four consecutive times, for his pictures starting with Dr.
Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and ending with Barry Lyndon Ranked 4 in Empire UK magazine's "The Greatest directors ever!
Was an avid feline lover, once having 16 of them at one point. He would often let his cats lay around his editing room after filming completed as his way of making up for time he lost with them while he was working.
By the age of thirteen, he had become passionate about photography, chess and jazz drumming. At the age of 16, he snapped a photograph of a news vendor in New York the day after President Franklin D.
Roosevelt died. He sold the photograph to Look magazine, which printed it. The magazine eventually hired him as an apprentice photographer while he was still in high school.
Starting with Lolita , he independently produced all his films from his adopted home of England, UK. In , after creating and publishing a photo essay for Look magazine on boxing, he used the proceeds from the sale to the magazine to make his first film, a minute documentary on the same subject entitled Day of the Fight Abigail Rosen , who co-starred with Viva in Andy Warhol 's Tub Girls , was the first door lady at Max's Kansas City, a nightclub in New York City.
She claims she had the honor of throwing Kubrick out of the club. It was not a good plan, besides which people would go up and steal coats.
So we abandoned the whole idea and I became the door lady with Bob Russell. The embarrassing times were when Mickey asked us to kick somebody out.
The philosophy behind it was that no one would beat on or abuse a woman. I was asked one night to kick Stanley Kubrick out.
He was drunk and obnoxious and neither Mickey or I knew who he was. I said, 'Sir, I think it's time for you to leave now, you're not going to be happy here.
Then Mickey found out the next day who we had kicked out, and he yelled at me for not recognizing him. Carlo Fiore , who was credited as an assistant to the producer on One-Eyed Jacks and helped develop the picture, wrote that the firing of Kubrick by Marlon Brando who went on to direct the film was perhaps inevitable, as there was only room for one "genius" on the picture.
Brando had originally intended to direct the film himself, but Paramount Pictures pressured him to hire a director. Both Kubrick and Brando, at the time, were represented by Music Corp.
In his memoir "Bud: The Brando I Knew," Carlo Fiore Carlo Fiore writing of his experience developing and working on the movie One-Eyed Jacks with his friend Marlon Brando - said that Kubrick had wanted to hire Spencer Tracy to play the character of Dad Longworth in the film.
The part had already been cast with Karl Malden , and Brando countered that Malden was a fine actor. Kubrick agreed, but said that Malden played "losers" and the part needed a heavyweight to balance Brando's character of Rio.
Brando immediately vetoed the idea of Tracy and forbade any more discussion on the topic. Kubrick and his partner James B.
Harris , during the development of Lolita , hired Marlon Brando 's friend Carlo Fiore -- whom Kubrick had worked with on the development of One-Eyed Jacks -- to write a screenplay of Vladimir Nabokov 's novel "Kamera obskura," which Fiore had optioned himself.
Written in Russian in , "Kamera obskura" was first translated into English around as "Camera Obscura" and again circa as "Laughter in the Dark.
Nothing came of Fiore's foray into film development, although Tony Richardson later made a movie of the novel with Nicol Williamson starring.
Used his favorite piece of music "Thus spoke Zaratustra" by Richard Strauss , recorded by Herbert von Karajan as the music score in A Space Odyssey Kubrick had started pre-production on Full Metal Jacket in , a full seven years before it was theatrically released.
The success of similar films during that time particularly Oliver Stone 's Platoon and John Irvin 's Hamburger Hill left him a bit jaded, feeling like he had been beaten at his own game.
This sentiment stayed with him in the early s when he decided to shelve Aryan Papers, his adaptation of the Louis Begley novel Wartime Lies.
Kubrick had completed the script and had done a large amount of pre-production work on Aryan Papers; Johanna ter Steege and Joseph Mazzello had been cast in the lead roles and locations had been scouted in Denmark, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Warners officially announced the project as Kubrick's next film in April and it was scheduled for a December release. Around the same time Steven Spielberg was shooting Schindler's List , and Kubrick thought the Holocaust-based subject matter of the two projects was too similar.
The shelving of this project helps to explain the year gap between Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut He directed four of the American Film Institute's Most Greatest Movies: A Space Odyssey at 15, Dr.
Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb at 39, A Clockwork Orange at 70, and Spartacus at He once called Ken Russell in the early s but ended the conversation abruptly because, according to Russell, he had been frightened by a bee.
He then called several days later to ask Russell where he had found the lovely English locations for his period films.
Russell told him and Kubrick used the locations in his next film, Barry Lyndon Russell said, "I felt quite chuffed. In interviews upon with the release of his highly controversial A Clockwork Orange , Kubrick cited The Ox-Bow Incident as the kind of movie he did NOT want to make when defending the use of an "evil" protagonist Alex.
Kubrick reasoned that The Ox-Bow Incident was bad art, as it took the stand that lynching was evil because innocent people might be lynched, not the stand that lynching i.
He wanted Alex explicitly evil thus, the jettisoning of the last chapter of the original novel, in which Alex is reformed; this chapter was not in the American edition that Terry Southern had given to Kubrick.
Kubrick felt that an explicitly evil Alex underscores the point that the state's invasion of the prisoner's soul turning him into a mechanical man, a "clockwork orange" was evil whatever the guilt or innocent, and the level thereof, of the prisoner.
He had no intention of having Anthony Burgess ' write the screenplay for A Clockwork Orange , intending to do it himself.
In fact, there is little that Kubrick added to Burgess' work except for editorial decisions such as eliminating the second murder Alex commits in prison and replacing Billy Boy with Georgie as police constable Dim's partner the entire last chapter of the novel was jettisoned, but it had been in the American edition of the novel that Kubrick had first read.
Americans, as Burgess reasoned, did not like to see their criminals reformed. The dialog was considered by many critics and cineastes as being lifted almost straight from the book though there are enough differences to dismiss that as a valid criticism of Kubrick the screenwriter.
This is the first of the two movies in which Kubrick has sole credit as screenwriter Barry Lyndon , which immediately followed A Clockwork Orange is the other.
Kubrick was one of the first director-writers to actually take credit on a film. Going back to the beginnings of the film industry, directors had often participated in the writing of their films, but most did not take credit.
It might have been the fact that Kubrick used less of Vladimir Nabokov 's credited screenplay and more of his own writing and the improvisations of Peter Sellers for Lolita that influenced him to become a credited screenwriter.
Lolita was shot at the time that the "auteur" theory which held the director was the main author of a film was gaining prominence, and from Dr.
Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb onward Kubrick took credit as a screenwriter. Earlier, he had worked uncredited on the screenplays of Paths of Glory and One-Eyed Jacks , which he had originally been hired by Marlon Brando to direct.
As he was one of the greatest masters the cinema has ever had and truly was the author of his films, Kubrick likely was encouraged to go it alone on A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon which allegedly he shot in an improvisatory manner after reading sections of the novel, which he carried with him during shooting.
Before his death, Kubrick established a minimum of two private trusts, the Stanley Kubrick Trust Number One and the Children's Trust, in which his wealth was collected.
Proceeds from the trusts will be distributed among his two children and one stepchild. Out of all of his feature films, Spartacus is the only one to which he hasn't contributed in writing the screenplay.
He joined with directors Martin Scorsese , Woody Allen , Francis Ford Coppola , Steven Spielberg , Robert Redford , Sydney Pollack and George Lucas in forming the Film Foundation promotes restoration and preservation of film - May According to Kirk Douglas , Kubrick allegedly wanted to take credit for the Spartacus screenplay that was primarily written by Dalton Trumbo.
Trumbo, who was blacklisted at the time, originally was going to use the alias Sam Jackson. During the production of the film, Otto Preminger announced he had hired Trumbo to write the screenplay for Exodus Douglas, in turn, announced that he had been the first to hire Trumbo, who would be credited on his film.
Preminger's film was released six months earlier than "Spartacus," which was released in October Douglas later said he decided to give Trumbo credit because he was appalled at Kubrick's attempt to hog the credit.
This "recollection" likely was colored by the fact that Kubrick went on to become a great director, and the film was seen as a Kubrick film rather than as the product of Kirk Douglas , who produced it.

Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb screenplay.
Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb producer. Director Stanley Kubrick was one of the most consistently fascinating filmmakers in the latter half of the 20th century.
Just as his singularly brilliant visual style won him great acclaim, his unconventional sense of narrative and seeming lack of overt emotionalism often elicited critical puzzlement.
Emerging onto the filmmaking scene with films like "Killer's Kiss" and "The Killing" , Kubrick truly arrived with his bleak antiwar epic "Paths of Glory" After playing the role of director-for-hire on the sword and sandal epic "Spartacus" , Kubrick entered the pantheon of great filmmakers with "Dr.
Strangelove or: How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb" , often cited as the finest political satire ever made. Continuing that tradition, he directed the technically brilliant " A Space Odyssey" , which was hailed as the best science fiction film of all time.
Kubrick courted controversy with the ultraviolent "A Clockwork Orange" before making what many considered to be one of his best films, "Barry Lyndon" With "The Shining" , Kubrick waded into the horror genre with exacting aplomb, and later helmed the intense Vietnam War drama "Full Metal Jacket" Twelve years later, Kubrick directed his final film, "Eyes Wide Shut" , which managed to garner its share of controversy even after his death prior to its release.
The result was The Killing , a taut caper film about the robbing of a racetrack. It is regarded as an important late-period film noir , largely because of its creative use of flashbacks and its nonlinear narrative.
Set during World War I , it focused on the suicidal attack by French troops on a German position and the repercussions in its aftermath.
Because of its damning portrayal of the French officer corps, the film was not shown in France until Kirk Douglas , Adolphe Menjou, and Ralph Meeker gave commanding performances.
Throughout his career, Kubrick took a hands-on approach to the details of all aspects of his films, not least production design, editing, and cinematography.
Indeed, he was personally responsible for the bravura handheld tracking shots in Paths of Glory. Unfortunately, Kubrick had waived his salary for profit participation in the film, which, despite its excellence, did not fare well at the box office.
Kubrick worked on developing One-Eyed Jacks for several months with Marlon Brando , but the creative differences between the two finally became too great, and Kubrick left the project, which was ultimately directed by Brando himself.
Kubrick then moved his family to England , where he took advantage of the so-called Eady plan, which provided considerable tax incentives for foreign film producers who used at least 80 percent British labour.
Many agreed, however, that James Mason was superb as Humbert Humbert , the professor who becomes obsessed with a year-old girl Sue Lyon , and Peter Sellers and Shelley Winters also submitted striking performances.
Despite stirring up plenty of controversy of its own with its subject matter particularly with the Catholic Legion of Decency , Lolita was a box-office hit.
Strangelove; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb This wickedly nihilistic comedy about the Cold War arms race was written by Kubrick, Terry Southern , and Peter George on whose novel Red Alert it was based.
In the planning stages, Kubrick sought to treat the material seriously, but he kept finding himself gravitating toward farce and eventually gave in to that impulse while still managing to powerfully convey the horrible prospect of nuclear annihilation.
He made the most of wonderfully inventive performances by George C. Scott , Sterling Hayden, and especially Sellers , who plays three very different but equally memorable characters.
Strangelove earned Kubrick his first Academy Award nomination for best direction and also garnered nominations for best picture, best actor Sellers , and best screenplay.
