STILL TICKIN': The Return of Clockwork Orange
Documentary Film Screening

A Clockwork Orange drew record audiences for nearly a year before Warner Brothers and Stanley Kubrick (who was troubled by the extreme, nation-wide reaction to the movie) abruptly withdrew it from British distribution. Popular belief was that several vicious copycat attacks led Kubrick to rescind the film, but, in this rarely seen BBC documentary on the ban-and-return (27 years later) of the cult classic, his widow, Christine, confirmed rumors that Kubrick withdrew A Clockwork Orange on police advice, after violent threats were made against him and his family.
