Excerpt from Newsweek - Kubrick's View by By Jack Kroll
"He was up before dawn, he goes 18-, 20-hour days. I think he just worked himself to death." Ermey recalls a day when Kubrick was driving an all-terrain vehicle crammed with crew. "Stanley starts blabbering, 'There it is, I want to bring the troops across this knoll.' Then he drives off the road into the f-----g ditch! This vehicle is on its side in an eight-foot ditch, and Stanley hasn't stopped talking! 'Put the base camp down here.' He opens his door, scrambles out and stands on top of the car, and he's still talking. We're still all scrunched up in the damned car. Stanley's still talking about the lens and the filters."
