It’s a measure of Stanley Kubrick‘s exactitude that he had this New York State driver’s license made up for Tom Cruise‘s William Harford character, which might have conceivably been used for an insert shot in Eyes Wide Shot. (No such shot turned up in the final cut.) Except if Kubrick was really a detail freak, he’d have made the expiration date on the license the same year as EWS‘s expected release date (i.e., 1999) or beyond, and not October 1997.
And the fact that license says Harford’s height is 5’10” while most celebrity height sites put Cruise’s stature at around 5’7″ tells you Kubrick was not above sacrificing reality on the altar of flattery.
The Harford license is one of the hundreds of items in the currently viewable Kubrick Archives in London.
