`Clockwork Orange' ban to be challenged

JUST A week after Stanley Kubrick's death, a London arthouse cinema is planning to screen A Clockwork Orange - the highly controversial film he banned in 1973, vowing it would never be shown again in Britain.

London's infamous Scala cinema is set to re-open its doors. The much-loved art-house fleapit played host to cult movie marathons complete with requisite faded glamour until it was shut down back in 1993 owing to financial problems caused by, among other things, an illicit screening of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, which the celebrated director had withdrawn from British release. Now, with the director barely cold in his coffin, the cinema plans to show the film again.

Letter: Kubrick's pies

Sir: In his admirable obituary of Stanley Kubrick (9 March), James Kirkup refers to "Terry Southern's Dr Strangelove". It is true that Terry is credited with writing the script, but to my knowledge, both Kubrick himself and Peter George, author of Red Alert, the novel that was the original source of the film, made significant contributions.

Obituary: Stanley Kubrick

AS A film director, Stanley Kubrick was an obsessed perfectionist. He became a very mysterious personality, for he refused to give interviews. He kept out of the idiotic showbiz limelight, so his character was not diluted by over-exposure in the media. He preserved unusual artistic integrity, though he was not above sowing false trails in his personal and professional life.

STANLEY KUBRICK'S biographer Michael Ciment called him "one of the most demanding, most original and most visionary film-makers of our time". The only superlative he omitted was, the most reclusive.

STANLEY KUBRICK, one of the century's most talented film directors and a legendary recluse, died yesterday, months before the release of his first film for over a decade.
