Hollywood’s film sets are no strangers to whispers and secrets, and one such incident that still leaves us intrigued involves the iconic director Stanley Kubrick and his enigmatic movie, Eyes Wide Shut.

Harvey Keitel, known for his no-nonsense attitude, couldn’t help but feel a bit uneasy with Kubrick’s ways. He mentioned:

“The director did some things I objected to”

Sure, the director was hailed as a genius, but even geniuses have their quirks. Keitel dropped hints about some behind-the-scenes clashes without revealing too much. Apparently, Keitel was initially supposed to have a significant role, but it all went downhill during a scene where a door stole the spotlight.

Yes, you heard it right – a door. Not some thrilling chase or a passionate kiss, just walking through a door. It was like a never-ending loop, with Keitel walking through that door over and over again. The cast and crew must have been scratching their heads, wondering what magic Stanley Kubrick expected to capture through this repetitive door dance.

But here’s where it gets interesting: Stanley Kubrick, in his quest for perfection, even had Cruise repeat this seemingly mundane act a whopping 95 times!

To add a sprinkle of irony, nobody really knows which door scene Stanley Kubrick obsessed over for those countless takes. The mystery only deepens, leaving us wondering if it was worth all the fuss.
