Burton Remembers "A Clockwork Orange"
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's classic, and still magnificent and disturbing, film, A Clockwork Orange. Tim Burton spoke with Gina McIntyre of the Los Angeles Times and recalled his memory of seeing that unforgettable film 40 years ago.
"It looms quite large," Burton said. "I remember I saw that movie at a drive-in on one of the first dates I ever had. It was a double bill of Clockwork Orange and Deliverance. My girlfriend got drunk, and I remember watching Clockwork Orange and her throwing up the backseat while I just sat there and watched the movie."
"I have a very strong memory of that," Burton said. "I’ll never forget it."
