Continuity mistake: The main character's name is several times in the film mentioned as 'Alexander DeLarge', but in the newspaper articles detailing his release from prison, they call him 'Alex Burgess'. Burgess is the surname of the author of the book the film is based on, so they might have originally intended to name him so as an homage.
Continuity mistake: When Alex, the writer, and the other two political people are sitting at the table near the end of the movie, not only does the amount of sauce change on the spaghetti, but the amount of spaghetti changes from shot to shot even after Alex has stopped munching on it. This isn't part of the director's ploy.
Trivia: According to actor Malcolm McDowell, director Stanley Kubrick was concerned that the Droog attack on F. Alexander and his wife would become just another dark, cruel and violent scene in a movie that was already full of dark, cruel and violent scenes. Kubrick wanted the Alexander home invasion to stand out as genuinely horrifying, but he was at a creative impasse. After Kubrick shut down production for several days to ponder the problem, he thought of Alex dancing during the attack. Malcolm McDowell suggested dancing (and singing) along to "Singin' in the Rain," as it was the only song to which he knew all the words.Charles Austin Miller
