Stanley Kubrick’s Chicago

The Chicago Tribune (requires free registration, alas):

Few people know that before he started making movies, Stanley Kubrick was a star photojournalist. In the summer of 1949, Look magazine sent him to Chicago to shoot pictures for a story called “Chicago City of Contrasts.”

(Via Coudal, of course, whence I also found this YouTube version of The Flying Padre, Kubrick’s rather saccharine first directing credit.)
