Stanley Kubrick

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Stanley Kubrick

Postby Tom Frame » January 15th, 2022, 10:46 am

Guys,

While not a traditional magician, Stanley Kubrick was a cinematic conjuror of the highest order. He is my favorite director. I’m the proud owner of original posters of Dr. Strangelove, 2001, Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining and Full Metal Jacket.

I recently participated in my first live, online auction and was elated to acquire a photograph of my favorite movie, Clockwork Orange, signed by Kubrick, Malcolm McDowell and Warren Clarke, with a COA.

I’m now on a frenzied mission to collect Stanley Kubrick autographs! I’m registered with Bonhams, Swann, Heritage Auctions, Nate Sanders, Live Auctioneers and Ebay and have Kubrick autograph notifications in place.

I don’t participate in wretched social media. You guys are my largest social network.

A number of you are collectors. Many of you are passionate about movies. Some of you consort with Hollywood glitterati. So I figured, what the hell? It’s worth a shot.

If you, or someone you know might consider selling ephemera bearing Stanley Kubrick’s authenticated signature, please contact me. I’m prepared to make a reasonable offer.


Thanks for your assistance.

Tom

Profiles in History may be the largest Hollywood collectible auction site. Get on their list.

I don`t know if Stanley Kubrick had a personal interest in magic, but Frank Berry the Canadian actor, comedian and magician played one of the bomber crew in the opening scenes of Doctor Strangelove and is seen manipulating a deck of cards. Michael Bailey a former president of The Magic Circle made a brief appearance as a street conjuror in Barry Lyndon and David Berglas was also the gambling advisor on this film, so Kubrick certainly had contact with magicians.

Andy,

Thanks for sharing those magic connections.

Kubrick's wife, Christiane said, "He loved Tony Curtis because they had lots in common - they both liked magic tricks."

My wife and I have been to art fairs at her house. (Our niece Katie was at art college with her daughter, so Katie would sometimes exhibit there.)
