This day in 1971 saw the US release of Stanley Kubrick’s film ‘A Clockwork Orange’ in New York.

The controversial film, based on Anthony Burgess’ book, starred Malcolm McDowell. It included much disturbing, dystopian imagery, employing scenes of violence and psychological drama, painting a non too positive portrait of a possible future Great Britain.
