As an avid thrift shopper, I always hope to find something amazing among the heaps of weird junk in LA’s stores. Yesterday, I found a cool looking film carrying case and when I opened it up, there was a sticky note with the handwritten words “Clockwork Orange” on top of four reels of film!
I snatched it up, purchased it, took it home and carefully confirmed what it was. It was indeed Stanley Kubrick’s Academy Award winning movie “A Clockwork Orange”! Now I have lots of questions… what kind of film stock is this? Intended for a movie theatre, a screening room, or home watching? What was its origin before I came to own it?
If you have any thoughts, let me know!
