A Clockwork Orange script
Synopsis: In an England of the future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his "Droogs" spend their nights getting high at the Korova Milkbar before embarking on "a little of the old ultraviolence," while jauntily warbling "Singin' in the Rain." After he's jailed for bludgeoning the Cat Lady to death, Alex submits to behavior modification technique to earn his freedom; he's conditioned to abhor violence. Returned to the world defenseless, Alex becomes the victim of his prior victims.

ALEX:

Right, Pete. Check the rest of the house.

Alex turns to Dim who holds the struggling Mrs. Alexander.

ALEX:

Dim...

Dim sets her down but holds her firmly. Alex starts to sing - "Singin'

in the Rain", accompanying it with a kind of tap dance.

ALEX:

(singing)

I'm singing in the rain...

He kicks Mr. Alexander accenting the lyrics.

ALEX:

(singing)

Just singing in the rain...

He clubs Mr. Alexander with stick, in the time to the music.

ALEX:

(singing)

What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again.

He pushes a rubber ball into Mrs. Alexander's mouth and binds it with

sellotape.

ALEX:

(singing)

I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above.

The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love.

Let the stormy clouds chase...

He kicks Mr. Alexander again.

ALEX:

(singing)

... everyone from the place.

Come on with the rain...

He puts ball in Mr. Alexander's mouth and sellotapes it.

ALEX:

(singing)

... I've a smile on my face.

I'll walk down the lane... to a happy refrain.

I'm singing... just singin' in the rain.

He knocks down the book cases and moves to Mrs. Alexander being held by

Dim. Starts to repeat on song as he cuts slowly up each leg of her cat

suit, until she is naked. This coincidences with the song finishing.

He turns to Mr. Alexander.

ALEX:

Viddy well, my little Brother. Viddy well.

INT. KOROVA MILKBAR - NIGHT

The boys enter yawning..

ALEX (V.O.)

We were all feeling a bit shagged and fagged and fashed, it having been

an evening of some small energy expenditure, O my brothers, so we got

rid of the auto and stopped off at the Korova for a nightcap.

Dim moves over to milk machine and speaks to the statue of the nude

girl.

DIM:

Hello Lucy, had a busy night?

Puts money in machine.

Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick was born in Manhattan, New York City, to Sadie Gertrude (Perveler) and Jacob Leonard Kubrick, a physician. His family were Jewish immigrants (from Austria, Romania, and Russia). Stanley was considered intelligent, despite poor grades at school. Hoping that a change of scenery would produce better academic performance, Kubrick's father sent him in 1940 to Pasadena, California, to stay with his uncle, Martin Perveler. Returning to the Bronx in 1941 for his last year of grammar school, there seemed to be little change in his attitude or his results. Hoping to find something to interest his son, Jack introduced Stanley to chess, with the desired result. Kubrick took to the game passionately, and quickly became a skilled player. Chess would become an important device for Kubrick in later years, often as a tool for dealing with recalcitrant actors, but also as an artistic motif in his films. more…
