Kubrick, Stanley Easter Egg - CRM 114

I've heard that all Kubrick films have "CRM 114" in them or a variation of it. in A Clockwork orange, it is "Serum 114" in Dr. Strangelove it is the name of the radio security device on the bomber. I don't know the others.

In 2001: The serial number of the spaceship Discovery is CRM 114; In Clockwork: The Durango's license plate is CRM-114; In Eyes Wide Shut: The morgue is room 14, in C-wing, 1st floor or C-Rm 114;

In the movie, the Durango's license plate actually reads "DAV 4850", just to clear that up.

In addition to your comments, I have noticed that the film Back to the Future contains a reference to CRM-114. It is seen at the start of the film where 'McFly' hooks-up to the amplifier, CRM-114 can be seen on a label underneath the switch key. Is this a tribute to Kubrick's Films?

CRM stands for "Critical Rehearsal Moment." It's a term Kubrick often used on the sets of his films to describe key scenes to his actors.

CRM 114 is not the license plate of Cruise's taxi to the "orgy."

...and the registry for the Discovery, as clearly stated in the film, is XD-1, not CRM-114.

MIB3 has "CRM 114" in two places: On the outside wall of the lunar maximum security prison (beginning of film), and also on the rear access door of the Apollo launch site forward observation bunker (end of film). A Sonnenfeld tip-of-the-hat to his favorite film, Dr. Strangelove.

Not sure what Stanley Kubrick decided the phrase CRM-114 meant to him, or why he started using it in *many of* his movies (not all), but it began with Dr Strangelove, so you won't see it in earlier movies like "The Killing". The name "CRM 114" (without the hyphen) for the message scrambling device on-board the bomber in "Dr Strangelove" is what the device was called in Peter Bryant's original novel "Red Alert", the book on which Kubrick's movie was based.

Anyone notice that this has striking resemblence to Lucas' THX 1138? Both are references from earlier films. Though not related in anyway (as far as I know) still kinda interesting.

In A Clockwork Orange, Alex is given an injection of Experimental Serum 114 (Kubrick zooms in on the bottle containing the serum). A play on CRM 114.
