Stanley Kubrick was a meticulous genius who put so much attention and detail into his films, that we’re still uncovering cool things he’s done. They’ve had entire museum displays showcasing his notes and his legend grows more and more each year.

But lucky for him, he had a very dedicated production crew that was willing to help him pull off the impossible.
