    Did you know Malcolm McDowell didn’t read the script, just told his agent that he’d do it if they paid what he asked.

    They did.

    His first day on the set, in makeup, one of the other actors (who HAD read the script) asked him how he planned to play the conversation with his penis…

    (And that’s from McDowell himself…)

    Too bad there’ll never be a DVD release (well, not an official one). And that’s from Arkush.

    But, i discover, You can watch it on Amazon streaming video.
