A Clockwork Orange
This 1971, Stanley Kubrick film is easily one of the STRANGEST movies I have ever seen. This movie was adapted from Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, published in 1962. This movie gets special recognition from Hankering for History because it was released into theaters on this day, December 19th, in 1971. A Clockwork Orange was also a cinematic innovator of its time. It achieved the first of many accomplishments. The film was “a first film to” in several categories.
