In 1947, Stanley Kubrick shot a pictorial, The Shoe Shine Boy for
LOOK magazine. Kubrick followed 12-year old Mickey as he made his rounds shining shoes for 10 cents a pair. With nine brothers and sisters, the money he makes will help his family, but he treats himself to an occasional hot dog.
Just 19-years old, Stanley Kubrick wasn't much older than Mickey.
