I worked for Stanley as a stills photographer on three of his pictures. Stanley loved ping-pong and he put up a tent in his garden so that he could play in all weathers. He was a family man who worried a lot about his cats and his children’s mice and hamsters. His children often appeared on the set. One day some Warner Brothers executives were expected to visit the set of "A Clockwork Orange". (He was probably well behind in his shooting schedule and they would have tried to push him.) Stanley just didn't turn up for that day's shooting.
