The Letters of Stanley Kubrick

Via Daring Fireball, a col­lec­tion of let­ters from the late film­maker Stanley Kubrick. Cracking stuff.

July 12, 1966. To: Arthur C Clarke

No one can know more than your­self how my oblig­a­tions and respons­ib­il­it­ies dur­ing the pre­par­a­tion and actu­al film­ing have com­pletely absorbed every day, sev­en days a week and under these cir­cum­stances I have obvi­ously had no oppor­tun­ity at all to do my share of the revi­sion to the book. It is my right to do this and I have repeatedly expressed to you how import­ant I believe the revi­sions to be. When you went to New York you prom­ised not to show the manu­script to any­one. Instead of which you have allowed Scott to sub­mit it to two pub­lish­ers and Playboy magazine.
