I was always amazed at how few people at Warner actually knew the history of the company or its products. It would seem that in the 16 months since I left, things have only gotten worse.
Case in point: in May they will release a Blu-Ray boxed set of Stanley Kubrick movies. They have sent out all the publicity material this week. I can tell you nothing goes out without having been seen by and approved by multiple people. Here is the image of the box cover:
By all means click on the image to see the full size. Look at the list of films. 4th film from the bottom. Barry London?
Oddly enough, a bit of googling around tells me that in the 1970s, Warner had a VP of publicity and advertising named Barry London.
Which is no excuse for this at all.
