A Clockwork Orange

After trying to committ suicide from the old man's house he is at the hospital then is made to be a victim in the press because the treatment was cruel . At the end of the film he is "cured". In the book there was an extra chapter not included in the film because the amercian publication of the book didn't include it. It was cut because Amercian publishers didn't like how Alex was "cured" by coming of age (turning 21).

Continuity mistake: When Alex and his droogs come in on Billy Boy making ready to rape the young girl, the first shot shows the lacing of a shoe or sandal on the girl's left calf, but afterward it jumps to her right.

Question: I don't understand why Alex waits until Mrs. Alexander has unchained the opened front door and fully opened it, before he and his droogs break in. I'm sure the four of them could easily have broken the chain off with a bit of force. Is it simply part of Alex's nature to be invited in, before he starts his attack?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's part of the "fun element" of the crime to get the victim to open the door themselves.
