Once a Bolex, always a Bolex.

I wonder what he's shooting in that first image...maybe one of those early short documentaries?

It's from '63, so it's undoubtedly the Burpleson Air Force base battle scenes in Strangelove. Kubrick always did his own hand-held camerawork (and always seemed to have a photographer on the scene to get a few shots of him doing it . . . which I'm sure was purely by happenstance. No vainglory there)

totally freaking awesome. yes mark!
kubrick was a freak for the arriflex brand.

I forgot that. I was thinking it was a Rex 5. My son even said something of that sort when he brought an Arri home for film classes.

I forgot he looked that young on Strangelove. For some reason I thought the beard came with the '60s.

Oddly enough, I was just listening to McDowell's commentary on Clockwork Orange where he's making fun of Kubrick's handheld camera work.

No wonder he didn't cast him as Barry Lyndon.

He is unexpectedly quite, quite sexy in that top photo.
