“A Clockwork Orange” Poster


This is the design that was agreed as the poster design for the film. A number of executives at Warner Bros were uneasy about the explicit wavering of the stiletto knife and this prompted Castle to develop an alternative design with Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell)holding a glass of milk. This was soon dropped when it was seen how it subsequently weakened the impact of the image. Interestingly though, once approved as the poster design, it was subject to a further number of changes due to the differing tastes of an international audience. Some required the mannequin to sport a bikini for reasons of decency, which Castle designed to match her earrings.
