Just in case you weren't aware, it's Stanley Kubrick's birthday today. Or would have been. You should therefore drop whatever you have planned tonight and plan a masked orgy in tribute to the great man.

If that sounds a little bit too much for a Tuesday then we've assembled a more PG-rated way of remembering him. We've compiled some of the finest images we could find of Big Stan on set, making movies. What a man...

The Naked City: Kubrick (on the set as still photographer) and Barry Fitzgerald (in straw hat) - 1948.
