A Clockwork Orange newspaper props
The Barbican Arts Centre in London recently held a Stanley Kubrick retrospective. The foyer of Cinema 1 displayed some treasures from the Kubrick Archive. These newspaper props appear in A Clockwork Orange. Note Malcolm McDowell in the photos. The Ludovico cure touted in the headlines is a brutal and experimental aversion therapy.
There are more pictures here, including scouting photos from Barry Lyndon and the famous pages of Jack Torrence's novel from The Shining.
The annotation noted how there is still some conjecture as to whether Kubrick had every individual page typed, or they were photocopied. For my part, in the making-of documentary for The Shining, we see Kubrick on set typing some of the pages.
