Of all The Lost & Unmade Projects Of Stanley Kubrick, second to "Napoleon" perhaps, "The Aryan Papers" is one those films many wish the filmmaker had gotten to. Its development is certainly as well documented, with Uma Thurman and Johanna Ter Steege attached to star in the movie, telling the story through the eyes of a ten-year-old who recalls how his Aunt protected him by passing them off as Catholics in order to survive the Nazi occupation of Poland in WWII. But what you might not know is how he came across the latter actress.

Stanley Kubrick

Of all The Lost & Unmade Projects Of Stanley Kubrick, second to "Napoleon" perhaps, "The Aryan Papers" is one those films many wish the filmmaker had gotten to. Its development is certainly as well documented, with Uma Thurman and Johanna Ter Steege attached to star in the movie, telling the story through the eyes of a ten-year-old who recalls how his Aunt protected him by passing them off as Catholics in order to survive the Nazi occupation of Poland in WWII. But what you might not know is how he came across the latter actress.

According to this rare Dutch TV documentary, Kubrick was a big fan of George Sluzier's "The Vanishing," even calling the filmmaker to talk about editing after watch the thriller. And perhaps it's no coincidence that "The Vanishing" actress Steege wound up being called by Kubrick by "The Aryan Papers." And in the doc she talks about her brief experience on the project, reading the script and even working with the director, before it was all scuttled. And there's more too in the doc, so for all you completists, this is a must watch. [Dangerous Minds via Reddit]
