Quotes

Stanley's Mom: And why is the script in multi-coloured pages? Anything?
Stanley Kubrick: Each time we make a new version, at first you get very methodical - each time you make a new version, you put a different colour in. After a while, you're lucky if people get copies of the changes.
Jack Nicholson: It's so that you start with white, then you go to blue, then pink, then green, then yellow.
Stanley's Mom: But I just wondered...

First of all I want to thank Stanley's daughter for finally showing us the Master at work. Though only 35 minutes long this short documentary manages to reveal us the secret (though only a bit) of Kubrick's movie making. We don't see a man who commands his actors by giving them orders, as some people may think of Stanley, we see a simple man, who, what is hard to believe, talks and walks, and makes jokes just like everyone else. We see a man who is a friend of his actors, he isn't rude with them, we see how he behaves when one(Duvall actually) spoils a set-up.

This documentary is an amateur work, but still, this is the only video material on which we can see Mr.Kubrick at work. Thanks at lest for that!
