TCM Lands Stanley Kubrick Rarity for TV Debut

Dec 1, 2011  •  Post A Comment

A rarely seen Stanley Kubrick film will make its world television debut, after TCM secured the movie for a special showing as part of a marathon honoring film preservation efforts, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The movie is "Fear and Desire," the director’s first feature film, from 1953. It will air Dec. 14 at 8 p.m., the story reports.

Kubrick, who went on to create landmark films including "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "A Clockwork Orange," was a young Look magazine photographer when he helmed "Fear and Desire." He called the effort "a bumbling amateur film exercise."

It was presented at the 1993 Telluride Film Festival, but has never been televised until now. TCM will show it as part of a 24-hour marathon honoring the preservation efforts of the Motion Picture Department at George Eastman House. The program, hosted by TCM’s Robert Osborne, will feature 15 film rarities.
