* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: The film is a horrific view of a society crippled by teenage hooligans, but it actually ''inspired'' similar crimes throughout the UK, first during its initial release (enough that Warner Brothers pulled it from theaters in England) and [[http://dangerousminds.net/comments/still_ticking_stanley_kubricks_ban_clockwork_orange then after its DVD release]].

* ApprovalOfGod: Inverted; Creator/GeneKelly reportedly did not like the film's take on "Singin' on the Rain" so much that when he met Malcolm [=McDowell=] at a party some years later, Kelly turned and walked away in disgust.

to:

* CreatorBreakdown: Burgess was paranoid that he was dying of a brain tumor, so he cranked it out in less than a month.
* ExecutiveMeddling: In a reversal of the "Hollywood Ending" stereotype, American publishers insisted that the last chapter (where Alex decides to stop being a criminal and raise a family) be removed to make the novel more depressing.

* ThrowItIn: The scene with Alex dancing while he sings "Singing In The Rain" was the result of Stanley Kubrick finding the scene too conventional and asking actor Malcolm [=McDowell=] to improvise. Additionally, the scene in which Alex "pops" his mouth open for the minister to feed him is entirely improvised, as Kubrick got incredibly bored filming the scene; Malcolm McDowell then started acting silly to keep the crew's attention focused. Considering it was used in the film, it's probably safe to say it worked.

The scene with Alex dancing while he sings "Singing In The Rain" was the result of Stanley Kubrick finding the scene too conventional and asking actor Malcolm [=McDowell=] to improvise. Additionally, Interestingly, Kubrick only told [=McDowell=] to try dancing, not singing. [=McDowell=] did, then spontaneously started singing the song. Kubrick liked it so much that, as soon as the take was over, he immediately left the set to secure the rights to the song.

* ThrowItIn: The scene with Alex dancing while he sings "Singing In The Rain" was the result of Stanley Kubrick finding the scene too conventional and asking actor Malcolm [=McDowell=] to improvise. Additionally, near the end, the man feeding Alex while Alex mocks him about it by 'popping' his mouth open while the man spoke to him came about as a result of Kubrick being in a particularly bad mood and [=McDowell=] acting goofy in an attempt to cheer him up. Considering it was used in the film, it's probably safe to say it worked.

* CreatorBacklash: The film was the subject of much media hype linking it to violent crimes. After Stanley Kubrick received death threats, he withdrew the film from screening in the UK, even suing arthouse theatres that tried to show it. The ban was only lifted after Kubrick's death.

After Stanley Kubrick received death threats, along with hearing of the news of two copycat crimes involving the rape of a Dutch girl in the hands of men singing "Singin' in the Rain" and the beating of a 16 year old boy who, while dressed as Alex, beat another boy, he withdrew the film from screening in the UK, even suing arthouse theatres that tried to show it. The ban was only lifted after Kubrick's death.
