Leon Vitali, who played Lord Bullingdon, on Stanley Kubrick: "We had taken a walk when we were filming. It was like a whistle-stop tour of every Stately Home in England, it seemed like, when we were filming Barry Lyndon." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In the final installment of my conversation on the afternoon of the première in New York of Tony Zierra's Filmworker, Leon Vitali reveals that Stanley Kubrick was "nuts for animals", that the ballroom used in Barry Lyndon was "full of Joshua Reynolds' and Van Dykes", and that a scene they called the "Masked Ball" was filmed in the home of Lord Carnarvon, who discovered the Tutankhamun tomb.

We speak about Kubrick, the photographer, a secret nostalgia, the casting of the twins Lisa Burns and Louise Burns for The Shining, Diane Arbus and Bruno Dumont's Jeannette, The Childhood Of Joan Of Arc.

Fan Expo 2014: Sheryl Lee And The Grady Twins Talk Twin Peaks, The Shining, And Being Dead Girls

The brief scenes in which Danny Torrence encounters The Grady Sisters haunting the halls of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, are not only considered some of the scariest moments in that film, but some of the most ghastly images ever shot. One can only imagine what it must've been like for real-life twins Louise and Lisa Burns, who in their girlhoods, were the stuff nightmares were made of for an entire adult world.
