Stanley Kubrick and the Apollo Hoax

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

Stanley Kubrick and the Apollo Hoax

Unread post by michiganj » Thu Jul 16, 2020 10:42 pm

In this new thread I will be posting the results of my ten years of research on Stanley Kubrick and his films.

I promise not to bore you with outrageous theories or meaningless psychobabble. :rolleyes: Just the facts.

Image


Why did Stanley change the room number from 217 in Stephen King's novel to room 237 ?

Alfred Hitchcock's Torn Curtain 1966




Torn curtain.
Torn Apollo 11 sweater.

Image


Chapter 10 of King's novel is titled HALLORANN and it goes on to describe him.
He had a soft southern accent and he laughed alot, disclosing teeth too white
and too even to be anything but 1950-vintage Sears and Roebuck dentures.
Image

If we look inside the 1977 Sears Fall/Winter catalog...

Image

...we will find Danny's number 42 shirt...

Image

Image

...the little people framed collage in the back room of the Torrance's apartment...

Image

Image

...and Danny's bear pillow called Pillow Pals.

Image

Image

Image


There is only one other item from this catalog that was used in the film.

The curtain.

Image

Image


Here is a page from an early screenplay draft for Full Metal Jacket.

Image

The final cut turned out a little different.



Crazy Earl says "I'll be General Custer!"

Oh, you mean George Armstrong Custer?

Not to discourage you, but this is all laid out in Jay Weidner's film.

At around 28 minutes you see the clock is tight against the conduit.

Image

At one hour and fifty minutes Stanley has shifted the clock, thus drawing attention to it, and the time is now 6:55.

Image

Stanley also changed Alex's prison number in A Clockwork Orange from 6655321 in the novel to six, double-five, 3, 2, 1.

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express is about the kidnapping and murder of little Daisy Armstrong and the people who want their self-appointed justice. The killer, Cassetti, bribed his way out of a conviction and fled America only to return under the name Ratchett. 12 people close to Daisy decided to take the matter into their own hands and kill Ratchett onboard the Orient Express. One of them, Mary Debenham traveling from Budapest aboard the Taurus Express, panics when she learns there may be a delay and she could miss the connection to the Orient Express if her train does not get in at 6:55.

Image

Another character Helena tried to conceal her true name by putting a grease spot over the letter H on her husband's passport and then claiming to be Elena.

Image

The Harford's daughter is also named Helena.

Image

Image


Apollo 12

The centrifuge was built by Vickers-Armstrong, a British aircraft manufacturer.

Dear michiganj,

I am interested in your research on this topic but can you please connect the dots and spell out what these things mean?

Houston, we have a problem.

In A Clockwork Orange, Alex is commenting on the brand of wine.

Image

Image

What Alex should have said was Chȃteau Montrose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montrose,_Houston

Image

Can I offer you a Virginia Slim? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Slims_of_Houston

Image

Wendy brings Jack his breakfast. In the novel she makes scrambled eggs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunnyside,_Houston

Image

For Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick named one of his production companies Hobby Films.

Image

One of the characters in A.I. Artificial Intelligence is named Professor Hobby. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_P._Hobby_Airport


Shelley Duvall (born in Houston, Texas) made her film debut in Brewster McCloud (shot on location in Houston, Texas). It concerns a young recluse who lives in a fallout shelter of the Houston Astrodome where he is building a pair of wings so he can fly. Recall Stanley's acceptance speech where he talks about Icarus and building better wings. Shelley's character is a part-time race car driver and drives a Plymouth Road Runner (beep! beep!).

In FMJ, Sargent Hartman asks if anybody knows who Charles Whitman was. Cowboy says, "Sir, he was that guy who shot all those people from that tower in Austin, Texas, sir!" Sarge says, "Charles Whitman killed 12 people."



He actually killed 14 people in all. One of the officers that shot and killed Whitman, ending the day's massacre, was Houston McCoy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Whitman

In writing Dr. Strangelove, Stanley chose some interestingly odd character names such as Col. Bat Guano, Gen. Jack D. Ripper, President Merkin Muffley and Group Capt. Mandrake. The oddest one to me is Lothar Zogg. An internet search came up with Mandrake the Magician and his sidekick Lothar.



This is Ogg and Zogg. They are two Martians that have come to steal the amphibicopter and destroy Earth.

Image



Those scenes are from this film. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056580/?r ... f_=nv_sr_1

Image

Image

Image

Image





There is one other film that contains an amphibicopter. https://www.petersen.org/police-amphibicopter-c-2001

Good stuff, I'm connecting the dots, keep 'em coming.

One question and maybe a suggestion -

How is Murder on the Orient Express linked to Kubrick (other than having the name Armstrong in it and 6:55 on the clock?).

"The Harford's daughter also has the name Helena" - I get that this is from Eyes Wide Shut, but I had to look it up, it wasn't clear, and I'm not understanding the jumps to the Murder on the Orient Express and the connection there.. Is Kubrick connected to that film in some way?

I'd like to see this spelled out so that a 2 year old can understand it.

I think I've figured it out - "Eyes Tight Shut" and 6:55 links Kubrick to Murder on the Orient Express which reveals Daisy Armstrong.

michiganj,

In 1987, Kubrick gave an interview to Film Comment Magazine. The same issue of the magazine also featured interviews with Anjelica Huston and John Huston.

And what song did HAL sing while Dave Bowman was deactivating him?

Yes! Now you're catching on. Here's another interview with Penelope Houston. https://scrapsfromtheloft.com/2016/11/1 ... e-houston/

There is dialogue in The Shining that simply doesn't add up.



Three years ago?

The only date given in the film is the black and white photo at the end, July 4, 1921.

Image

If we subtract three years we can find the Address of President Wilson, July 4, 1918, Mount Vernon. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1593225/

Rob Ager also sees, pictured in the black and white photo, a younger Woodrow Wilson along with his wife and daughters.

As Alex is strolling through the Chelsea record shop he picks up a magazine flips some pages and sets it on another counter.



That magazine which seems a little out of place for that kind of store is CinemaX.

Image

Image

Inside the magazine is an article on the Woodstock Music Festival. images/SKfiles/lookout/woodstock.pdf

Spelled like Jimi Hendrix, who of course is famously known for his performance at the Woodstock Music Festival.

One of the filming locations for Barry Lyndon was at Blenheim Palace located in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England. http://movie-locations.com/movies/b/Barry-Lyndon.php http://www.wakeuptowoodstock.com/

In Arthur Schnitzler's Traumnovelle (Dream Story), the novel that Eyes Wide Shut was based on, there actually is a character named Nightingale only he doesn't have a first name.

Image

This crazy carpet pattern is a design by David Nightingale Hicks.

After Wendy knocks Jack out with the bat and locks him in the storage room we see that he's been sleeping on huge bags of Holly salt.

Image

The Holly brand of salt does not exist. This is just a prop. Why?


One day I'm browsing Dave McGowan's Laurel Canyon series and on his website he had a list of names and addresses of all the famous people that lived in the canyon.
As I scrolled down I see Woodrow Wilson Drive. So I punched up a map of Los Angeles and sure enough, there it is.

Image

In the upper right you'll find Woodrow Wilson Dr. To the left is Woodstock Rd. In the far bottom left is Nightingale Dr. and near the corner of Holly Pl. and Wonderland Ave. is the Lookout Mountain Studio.

Amazing. I hope you don't mind me adding to your research.

In Eyes Wide Shut, Nicole Kidman's character is named Alice. She is often shown throughout the movie staring at the mirror. In fact the movie's promotional poster is depicted inside of a mirror.

Image

Image

According to WikiPedia - the old fashioned name for a mirror is a Looking Glass
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirror

Alice in Wonderland is a fairy tale about a privileged girl who is bored with her life (similar to Nicole Kidman's character) and who goes “through the looking glass” to end up in Wonderland.

Through the Looking Glass is the Sequel to Alice in Wonderland

Not at all. Please do !

I was going to add that part about Alice and the Looking Glass next but your presentation is way better than what I had in mind. Thanks.

In the picture your posted about the clock changing its position, I also noticed that they added some kind of refrigerator just below it and that the switch on far left in the first picture (the one next to the door) disappear in the second picture.

Indicative of the continuity errors in the Apollo photographs. Perhaps the vanishing refrigerator also represents the Cold War, in that it appears to be there, but it's not really there.
