‘I Expect to Make the Best Movie Ever Made’

Letters of Note has a 1971 unfinished draft from Stanley Kubrick to MGM about Napoleon:

  1. It’s impossible to tell you what I’m going to do except to say that I expect to make the best movie ever made.

And they’ve got a letter from Audrey Hepburn to Kubrick, politely turning down his offer to play Josephine. Imagine that. (Via Coudal.)
