The Complete STANLEY KUBRICK Exhibit at LACMA – » Killer’s Kiss: The Eyemo Camera

The Eyemo Camera, by Bell & Howell, is a compact and robust 35mm handheld camera. In 1930 it became standard equipment for almost all newsreel productions; the US Army also used it during World War II. It was the camera of choice for war reporters and documentary directors because it is powered by a spring motor and can be loaded with 100 feet of film for a sequence lasting just over a minute. Kubrick used the Eyemo to capture the fight sequence in “Killer’s Kiss.”
