This chapter describes the history of Kubrick’s various film adaptations. Knowing how Kubrick made choices about what novels and short stories to adapt, how he wrote scripts and worked with co-screenwriters and/or the authors of novels and actors, offers invaluable insights into understanding how the process of adaptation was, for the director, of the utmost importance for the realization of his films. The discussion includes films such as Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Full Metal Jacket.
