In front of Douglas and the entire crew he blasted off on what he claimed was Kubrick's dubious parentage, and made several other unprintable references to Kubrick's relative greenness in the art of directing actors.
Kubrick merely listened calmly, and, after Menjou had spluttered to an uncomplimentary conclusion, said quietly: She and Kubrick later married; the couple remained together until his death in Score[ edit ] The music score, by Gerald Friedwas the first to use percussion instruments only, except in the credits.
