Producers: David Spodak, Charles Moore
Commentary: Kirk Douglas, James B. Harris, Richard Anderson, Mike Altmann
Camera & Lighting: Marc Levy

About the Production:

“Anatomy of a Film is the result of five years of research and production, including on-camera interviews with Kirk Douglas, Paths of Glory’s star, the film’s producer, James B. Harris, Richard Anderson, one of it’s principal actors and Kubrick’s widow Christiane , who also appeared in the film and married the director shortly after production. The editorial approach is to let the film play with full visual and aural continuity so that its story line can be followed. Narration and commentary intervene to illustrate artistry and technique or to put the film in historical and social context.” — David Spodak

Current Status:
Just completed, searching for distribution funds.
