A negro was employed to scrub the dissecting-room and was sent up without being told of the character of the room. When he saw the subjects on the tables he dashed out of the room in great fear, stumbled and fell headlong down the stairs, breaking his neck. Instead of notifying the coroner, a class of subjects quietly carried the body up again and devoted it to the advancement of science. It was with the utmost difficulty that the building was saved from the mob that formed when the facts became known…” 5 In 1879 the fear of the ‘night doctors’ was so strong that it became dangerous if a late-night passer-by were to be mistaken for one of these ghouls, as events in Little Rock, Arkansas, demonstrated: “At rather a late hour I was going along Second Street with a friend.
DEAN BALLINGER argues that the answer can be found in the director’s obsession with creative control. ILLUSTRATION: GETTY IMAGES/ ETIENNE GILFILLAN T he late, great AngloAmerican director Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999) has been the subject of some interesting cult attention over the last couple of decades. Kubrick’s famed reclusiveness provided the opportunity for London conman Alan Conway to publically impersonate Kubrick throughout the early 1990s (a scenario that served as the basis for the 2006 ﬁlm Colour Me Kubrick, starring John Malkovich as Conway).
There are many more and far older examples. There was, for instance, doctor J Marion Sims (1813-1883) who used enslaved African American women as experimental subjects, “most of whom he bought and kept on his property for this purpose. 12 In her groundbreaking study Medical Apartheid, 13 Harriet A Washington lists the experiences of escaped slave John ‘Fed’ Brown, who recalled in 1855 how a doctor produced painful blisters on his body to observe “how deep my black skin went”. 14 But even before that, in 1817, physician Elias S Bennett published notes on his crude experimental and botched surgery on an African American slave girl suffering from a tumour.
