Synopsis >

A second trailer for A Clockwork Orange. Narrated by Alex DeLarge, the film opens on Alex and his friends, Pete (Michael Tarn), Georgie (James Marcus), and Dim (Warren Clarke), partaking of mescaline-spiked milk at the Korova Milk Bar prior to an evening of 'the old ultra-violence'. They proceed to beat up an elderly vagrant under a motorway and interrupt an attempted gang rape of a woman by a rival gang led by Billyboy[2] (Richard Connaught).

As they walk along a canal, Alex attacks his droogs in order to re-establish his leadership. That night, the gang attempts to invade the home of a woman (Miriam Karlin) who lives alone with her cats and runs a health farm. In the process, she gets into a fight with Alex, and Alex mortally bludgeons her with a phallus-shaped statue. As they flee the scene, Dim smashes a milk bottle across Alex's face, temporarily blinding him and leaving him to be found by the police.
