Hollis Alpert, "Tell Me, Who Is Kubrick?"

The "Incomplete" Clockwork Orange
The American version of Burgess's novel, on which Kubrick based his screenplay, was missing the final chapter of the novel! This explains why the novel and the film have opposing endings. This site recounts the story of the missing "Chapter 21" and contains several excerpts from interviews with Burgess. The relationship between Burgess and Kubrick is somewhat strained.
