Publisher Comments:

The first book to explore Stanley Kubrick's archives...
...and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date
 
"The Stanley Kubrick Archives showed up one morning in our offices, where my editor and I circled it like curious apes." - Time Out, New York

This is the first book to explore Stanley Kubrick’s archives and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date. In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of 2001: A Space Odyssey, he replied: "It’s not a message I ever intended to convey in words. 2001 is a nonverbal experience…. I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content." The philosophy behind Part 1 of The Stanley Kubrick Archives borrows from this line of thinking: from the opening sequence of Killer’s Kiss to the final frames of Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick’s complete films are presented chronologically and wordlessly via frame enlargements. A completely nonverbal experience.

The second part of the book brings to life the creative process of Kubrick’s filmmaking by presenting a remarkable collection of mostly unseen material from his archives, including photographs, props, posters, artwork, set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules.

Accompanying the visual material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick’s best interviews.

Synopsis:

This special anniversary-edition work explores Stanley Kubrick's archives. With selected articles and essays and extensive film notes, this work offers the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date.

Synopsis:

The first book to explore Stanley Kubrick's archives and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date, divided into 2 parts. Part 1: The films Kubrick's complete films will be presented chronologically and wordlessly via frame enlargements. A completely nonverbal experience. Part 2: The Creative Process Divided into chapters chronologically by film, Part 2 brings to life the creative process of Kubrick's filmmaking by presenting a remarkable collection of material from his archives, including photographs, props, posters, artwork, set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules.

Synopsis:

The funniest movie ever made. Everybody likes it hot!

"This book is a joy and almost as good as seeing the film." - The Independent, London

Just before the cameras started rolling, producer David O. Selznick famously told director Billy Wilder that his new picture was doomed, saying, "You cannot combine comedy with murder." Wilder replied that he'd try anyway, and Some Like It Hot was eventually voted Best Comedy of the Century by the American Film Institute. A crossdressing, gender-bending, genre-busting, kinky crime caper, Some Like it Hot (1959) tells the story of two jazz musicians who dress in drag and go undercover in an all-girls' band to escape the Mob. With an ingenious screenplay by I.A.L. Diamond and Billy Wilder, and flawless performances by Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, Some Like it Hot is comic perfection.

* Interviews with Billy Wilder, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and others

* Excerpts from the script's first draft

* Behind-the-scenes on-set color photos

* Original promotional materials and a wealth of supporting ephemera

* Annotated/illustrated Billy Wilder filmography
