Hells yeah: Historical photo of a historical movie

‘Dead’ extras on the set of ‘Spartacus’ (released in 1960),  directed by Stanley Kubrick, in 1959 in-between takes.

Here’s a few others from the making of this movie, many with the director Stanley Kubrick.  I love the juxtaposition of ancient and modern in these photos!

    You know, there’s one other thing about contrast in clothing. Mind you, he’s not wearing a tie, but look at how Stanley Kubrick dressed on location: he still looks rather business-like. I wonder how many directors out in the field dress that way now. Of course I don’t know the answer about directors, but dress has become more casual in society overall.

    I’m getting old. I long for the days when men dressed respectfully … and carried tridents around with them. Of course, I suppose these days its also too much trouble for a gentleman to apply for a license to carry a concealed trident.
