The Hidden Stanley Kubrick.
In the nine years following Stanley Kubrick's death on March 7, 1999, several of his collaborators have written and spoken about their experiences working with this notoriously reclusive filmmaker. Their reminiscences shed light on aspects of Kubrick’s family life, private thoughts and work habits, and make for fascinating reading and viewing. Those who've shared their reflections include Michael Herr
(co-screenwriter, "Full Metal Jacket"); Leon Vitali
(actor, "Barry Lyndon" and Kubrick's personal assistant for nearly 25 years);
(credited with the "screen story" for "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence"); and
(who helped to develop the story for "A.I."). Peter Bogdanovich gathered together the impressions of others who worked with Kubrick on various projects
over the legendary director's career. [more inside]

images from the Vietnam war. Some photographers never made it out: Dana Stone
, Henri Huet
, Sean Flynn
Tim Page is still alive and his photos tell the story of 'Fire in the Jungle"
Several of these almost forgotten legends hung out at Franki's House
at one time or another.
Page, Stone and Flyn were all friends of Michael Herr who wrote about them and the war in Dispatches
which was widely acclaimed and acknowledged by Hunter S. Thompson as puts the rest of us in the shade
