“A Clockwork Orange” Poster
“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.

This design is the first that Philip Castle submitted to Kubrick and Warner Bros as the film poster for ‘A Clockwork Orange’. The strong triangular repeat represents the letter ‘A’ in the film’s title and this letter form is also echoed in the Korovo Milk Bar mannequin’s legs. This original version also has a stronger sense of the kaleidoscopic device Castle was using to heighten the dramatic force of the image.

Kubrick was keen that Castle worked from an actual bowler hat used in the film costume design (devised by Milena Canonera)so supplied him with one to draw from. The image demonstrates how terror can be conjured from the most ordinary of things. One of the initial ideas for the promotion of the film was to sell ‘Moloko’ style ice cream wafer cones. Sadly this marketing idea was never realised.

Droogs with Masks
Droogs with Masks

This design is composed of a number of different elements drawn from the scene in the film where Mrs Alexander, (played by Adrienne Corri) is humiliated by Alex and his droogs. The large phallus sculpture that Alex kills Catwoman with is conspicuous by its absence in this design, but it is echoed in the elongated noses in the masks that the Droogs wear. The anatomical amalgamation includes a detail of an exposed breast, which refers to a scene in the film where Alex cuts Catwoman’s red all-in-one with scissors to expose her breasts with all the assurity of a dress designer.

Moloko Milk Bar
Moloko Milk Bar

One can argue that the set design for the Moloko milk bar is heavily indebted to the British pop artist Allen Jones and the mannequin furniture that he gained notoriety for in the early 1970s. Jones was hired by Kubrick for the film but they soon fell out over financial differences. By this time he had already designed outfits for the waitresses to wear which exposed their buttocks (he used this design in his own publication Waitress). The two Lucy Milk Machines depicted dispense Moloko drinks from their nipples while the tables hold more than one drink comfortably. The wigs the mannequins wear were supplied by Leonard of Mayfair. Kubrick sent Castle a Lucy to work directly from, which has remained a central feature of his studio ever since.

“The Durango-95 purred away – real horrorshow – a nice, warm, vibraty feeling all through your guttiwuts. Soon, it was trees and dark, my brothers with real country dark.’nt price. This design is interesting, as one would have expected Castle to render the car chassis in a hyper-realistic way (something that he later became celebrated for). Instead, the contours of the car are abstracted into a series of deep tones that blend with the Droogs into a unified mass. This is heightened by the lack of depth and the flat application of colour, reflecting their illumination by oncoming headlights.
