Stewart's Fountain Classics
Stewart's Fountain Classics is a brand of premium soft drinks made in the United States. Stewart's are nostalgic "old fashioned" fountain sodas, having originated at the Stewart's Restaurants, a chain of root beer stands started in 1924 by Frank Stewart in Mansfield, Ohio. In 1990, the bottling rights to Stewart's were acquired by the Cable Car Beverage Corporation. Cream Soda and Ginger Beer flavors were introduced in 1992. Other flavors have been added since then. In November 1997 Cable Car Beverage Corporation was purchased by Triarc. Cadbury Schweppes PLC acquired the Stewart's brands in 2000 along with Snapple and Mistic Brands for $1.45 billion. Stewart's Root Beer was named the top root beer at the 2006 World Cup of Root Beer. Stewart's drinks come in 12 fl. oz. glass bottles with twist-off tops. The bottles of some flavors are tinted amber. Stewart's Restaurants Drink Stewart's Stewart's brand at Dr. Pepper/Snapple
A matchbook is a small paperboard folder enclosing a quantity of matches and having a coarse striking surface on the exterior. The folder is opened to access the matches, which are attached in a comb-like arrangement and must be torn away before use in contrast to a matchbox where the matches are loosely packed in the interior tray; the exterior of the matchcover is imprinted with a producer's logo with artistic decorations, or serves as an advertising/promotional medium for the undertaking by which it is sold or given away. The ease of making matchcovers of different shapes made them quite a popular cheap promotional item or anniversary souvenir. Manufacturing of matchbooks peaked during the 1940s and 1950s steadily declined because of the availability of disposable lighters and various anti-smoking health campaigns. Matchbooks have begun to regain some of their popularity as a "retro" advertising item in high-end restaurants. Although paper matches were patented in the 1880s, an early paper match "folder" was patented in September 1892 by Philadelphia patent attorney Joshua Pusey.
However, the matchbook as we know it was patented a few weeks by Charles Bowman of Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Pusey challenged Bowman's patent. Pusey sold his patent to the Diamond Match Trust in 1896 and served as the company's patent attorney. Bowman's company, the American Safety Head Match Company of Lebanon, PA did not last long, Diamond Match Co. adapted his design into their product, becoming the first mass-producer of paper matchbooks. Collecting of matchboxes, match labels and other match-related items is called phillumeny. A "matchcover", or "matchbook cover", is a thin cardboard covering that folds over match sticks in a "book" or "pack" of matches. Covers have been used as a form of advertising since 1894, two years after they were patented, since have attracted people who enjoy the hobby of collecting. Many historians point to the Mendelson Opera as the first to use matchbooks for advertising purposes. Inspired by the Opera's innovation, Diamond Match salesman Henry Traute began approaching manufacturers to advertise their products on his company's matches, promoting them as something that would be viewed by their users many times a day.
Among the first companies to order advertising matchbooks were Pabst beer, American Tobacco Company and Wrigley's Chewing Gum. He encouraged his customers to give away matchbooks as a promotional item. Collectors are known as phillumenists, or "lovers of light", include people who have a shoe box or fish bowl filled with packs from local stores and restaurants, to serious collectors with covers organized in hundreds of different topics. In 2005, there were over 1800 active collectors in The Rathkamp Matchcover Society, spread over 20 countries worldwide. On March 7, 2015 the highest price realized. In a private sale, a rare Lion Match Co. Safety First matchbook dated June 14, 1927 celebrating Charles Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic sold for $6,000 USD, it is estimated 200 of these books were handed out at a dinner in his honor at the Astor Hotel in New York.

Orangina is a carbonated beverage made from carbonated water, 12% citrus juice, as well as 2% orange pulp. Orangina is sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup and natural flavors are added. Orangina was invented at a trade fair in Algeria, developed by Augustin Trigo Mirallès from Spain, first sold in Algeria by Léon Beton in 1935. Today it is a popular beverage in Europe, northern Africa, to a lesser extent in North America. Since November 2009, Orangina has been owned by Suntory in most of the world. In the United States, the brand has been owned by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group since 2006. In Canada, the brand is owned by Canada Dry Motts Inc. Orangina started as Naranjina, presented at the 1935 Marseille Trade Fair by its Spanish inventor, chemist Augustin Trigo, from Valencia, who invented it in 1933; the drink was created from a mix of citrus juice and carbonated water. It was called TriNaranjus for the Spanish market. Léon Beton bought the concept and recipe for Naranjina in 1935. However, the outbreak of major conflicts, notably World War II sidelined Léon Beton's attempts to market his drink in Europe.
His son, Jean-Claude Beton, took over the company from his father in 1947. Jean-Claude Beton kept most of the original recipe, which he marketed to appeal to European and North African consumers. Orangina became a common beverage throughout North Africa. In 1951, Jean-Claude Beton introduced Orangina's iconic signature 8-ounce bottle, which became a symbol of the brand; the bottle recalls the rounded shape of an orange, with a glass texture designed to mimic the fruit. Production was moved to the city of Marseille in metropolitan France in 1962 in the run-up to Algeria's independence. Orangina was first launched in the United States in 1978 under the brand name, reverted to Orangina; the company, created by Beton, joined the Pernod Ricard group in 1984. In 2000, the Orangina brand was acquired by Cadbury Schweppes along with Pernod Ricard's other soda businesses, after an attempt to sell to Coca-Cola was blocked on anti competitive grounds. In 2006, Cadbury plc decided to concentrate on the chocolate business and sought buyers for its soda business.
As the number three soda producer globally, neither of the bigger two could buy it, so the company was split up to sell. In the United States, the brand is owned by Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc, created as a spin off of Cadbury Schweppes' former North American soft drinks business; the drink was introduced in the United States in 1978, under the name Orelia, but this name was abandoned in favor of the original in 1985. Orangina was produced for the North American market in Canada, but the operation was moved to Hialeah, United States, to be produced under license by Mott's LLP of Rye Brook, New York. Production of Orangina has since moved back to Canada. Orangina for the market in the United States is sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, instead of regular sugar like original Orangina, while the product for the Canadian market is labeled as being sweetened with glucose fructose syrup, another name for high-fructose corn syrup. In Canada, Orangina is imported by Canada Dry Motts from Europe.
From 2006, private equity firms Blackstone Group and Lion Capital LLP owned the brand outside North America under the company name Orangina Schweppes. In November 2009, its ownership changed once again. In Great Britain, it was manufactured under licence by A. G. Barr of Glasgow, most famous for Irn-Bru, this has been taken in house by Suntory subsidiary Lucozade Ribena SuntoryOrangina is produced in Vietnam by Fosters Vietnam under licence and is sold in Carrefour branches in Taiwan, it is produced in Iran by Shemshad Noosh Co. The brand is famous for the design of its 25 cl bottle made in the shape of a pear with a pebbly texture meant to recall the peel of an orange or other citrus fruit. Larger bottles include the pebbly texture but use a more regular bottle shape rather than maintaining the proportions of the smaller bottles. New flavours have emerged in Europe including Orangina Sanguine, made from blood oranges and contains caffeine and guarana, it is more sour than regular Orangina. Other flavours such as the series called "les givrés" are available in Europe, but seen in North America.
The sugar free variant "Miss O" was launched in the 2010s. In Tunisia, multiple flavors of Orangina are sold as Orangina Rouge, similar to the European Orangina Sanguine, Orangina Light as a sugar free variant. In 2010, a gay friendly Orangina commercial was released in France, a few weeks after a McDonald's advertisement featuring a gay teenager was shown on French television. In 2015, an Orangina cinematic commercial was directed by Vesa Manninen. In 2008, a commercial featuring anthropomorphic animals in swimsuits, caused outrage in the United Kingdom, for its sexually suggestive content. In the video, the animals gyrate around poles, spray the drink onto the breasts of other animals, ride bottles which explode; the advert had had 45 seconds of more provocative footage cut, was only to be shown after the 9 o'clock watershed during a programme titled How to Look Good Naked.

Root beer is a sweet North American soft drink traditionally made using the bark of the sassafras tree Sassafras albidum or the vine of Smilax ornata as the primary flavor. Root beer may be alcoholic or non-alcoholic, most non-alcoholic, it can be free of caffeine or have caffeine added, be carbonated or non-carbonated. It has a thick and foamy head when poured. Modern, commercially produced root beer is sweet, carbonated, non-alcoholic, flavored using artificial sassafras flavoring. Sassafras root is still used to flavor traditional root beer, but since sassafras was banned by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration due to the carcinogenicity of its constituent safrole, most commercial recipes do not contain sassafras; some commercial root beers do use a safrole-free sassafras extract. Major producers include A & W, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Coca-Cola, Sprecher Brewery, Dad's Root Beer, Berghoff Beer, Barq's. Sassafras root beverages were made by indigenous peoples of the Americas for culinary and medicinal reasons before the arrival of Europeans in North America, European culinary techniques have been applied to making traditional sassafras-based beverages similar to root beer since the 16th century.
Root beer has been sold in confectionery stores since the 1840s, written recipes for root beer have been documented since the 1860s. It was combined with soda as early as the 1850s, root beer sold in stores was most sold as a syrup rather than a ready-made beverage; the tradition of brewing root beer is thought to have evolved out of other small beer traditions that produced fermented drinks with low alcohol content that were thought to be healthier to drink than tainted local sources of drinking water, enhanced by the medicinal and nutritional qualities of the ingredients used. Beyond its aromatic qualities, the medicinal benefits of sassafras were well known to both Native Americans and Europeans, druggists began marketing root beer for its medicinal qualities. Pharmacist Charles Elmer Hires was the first to market a commercial brand of root beer. Hires developed his root tea made from sassafras in 1875, debuted a commercial version of root beer at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition in 1876, began selling his extract.
Hires was a teetotaler who wanted to call the beverage "root tea". However, his desire to market the product to Pennsylvania coal miners caused him to call his product "root beer", instead. In 1886, Hires began to bottle a beverage made from his famous extract. By 1893, root beer was distributed across the United States. Non-alcoholic versions of root beer became commercially successful during Prohibition. Not all traditional or commercial root beers were sassafras-based. One of Hires's early competitors was Barq's, which began selling its sarsaparilla-based root beer in 1898 and was labeled as "Barq's". In 1919, Roy Allen opened his root-beer stand in Lodi, which led to the development of A&W Root Beer. One of Allen's innovations was that he served his homemade root beer in frosty mugs. IBC Root Beer is another brand of commercially-produced root beer that emerged during this period and is still well-known today. Safrole, the aromatic oil found in sassafras roots and bark that gave traditional root beer its distinctive flavor, was banned for commercially mass-produced foods and drugs by the FDA in 1960.
Laboratory animals that were given oral doses of sassafras tea or sassafras oil that contained large doses of safrole developed permanent liver damage or various types of cancer. While sassafras is no longer used in commercially produced root beer and is sometimes replaced with artificial flavors, natural extracts with the safrole distilled and removed are available. One traditional recipe for making root beer involves cooking a syrup from molasses and water, letting the syrup cool for three hours, combining it with the root ingredients. Yeast was added, the beverage was left to ferment for 12 hours, after which it was strained and rebottled for secondary fermentation; this recipe resulted in a beverage of 2% alcohol or less, although the recipe could be modified to produce a more alcoholic beverage. Commercial root beer is now produced in every U. S. in Canada. Although this beverage's popularity is greatest in North America, brands are produced in other countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Argentina, the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Sweden and Thailand.
The flavor of these beverages may vary from typical North American versions. While no standard recipe exists, the primary ingredients in modern rootbeer are filtered water and artificial sassafras flavoring, which complements other flavors. Common flavorings are vanilla, cherry tree bark, licorice root, sarsaparilla root, acacia, molasses, sweet birch, honey. Soybean protein is sometimes used to create a foamy quality, caramel coloring is used to make the beverage brown. Ingredients in early and traditional root beers include allspice, birch bark, juniper, wintergreen, burdock root, dandelion root, pipsissewa, guaiacum chips, spicewood, wild cherry bark, yellow dock, prickly ash bark, sassafras root, vanilla beans, dog grass and licorice. Many of these ingredients are still used in traditional and commercially produced root beer today, thickened, foamed, or carbonated. Although most mainstream brands are caffeine-free, Barq's does contain caffeine. Root beer can be made at home with processed extract obtained from a factory, or it can be made from herbs and roots
A soft drink is a drink that contains carbonated water, a sweetener, a natural or artificial flavoring. The sweetener may be a sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice, a sugar substitute, or some combination of these. Soft drinks may contain caffeine, preservatives, and/or other ingredients. Soft drinks are called "soft" in contrast with "hard" alcoholic drinks. Small amounts of alcohol may be present in a soft drink, but the alcohol content must be less than 0.5% of the total volume of the drink in many countries and localities if the drink is to be considered non-alcoholic. Fruit punch and other such non-alcoholic drinks are technically soft drinks by this definition, but are not referred to as such. Soft drinks may be served chilled, over ice cubes, or at room temperature soda, they are available in many container formats, including cans, glass bottles, plastic bottles. Containers come in a variety of sizes. Soft drinks are available at fast food restaurants, movie theaters, convenience stores, casual-dining restaurants, dedicated soda stores, bars from soda fountain machines.
Soft drinks are served in paper or plastic disposable cups in the first three venues. In casual dining restaurants and bars, soft drinks are served in glasses made from glass or plastic. Soft drinks sipped directly from the cups. Soft drinks are mixed with other ingredients in several contexts. In Western countries, in bars and other places where alcohol is served, many mixed drinks are made by blending a soft drink with hard liquor and serving the drink over ice. One well-known example is the rum and coke, which may contain lime juice; some homemade fruit punch recipes, which may or may not contain alcohol, contain a mixture of various fruit juices and a soft drink. At ice cream parlours and 1950s-themed diners, ice cream floats, root beer floats, are sold. Examples of brands include Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sierra Mist, Sunkist, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, 7 UP. While the term "soft drink" is used in product labeling and on restaurant menus, in many countries these drinks are more referred to by regional names, including carbonated drink, cool drink, cold drink, fizzy drink, fizzy juice, lolly water, seltzer, coke, soda pop and mineral.
Due to the high sugar content in typical soft drinks, they may be called sugary drinks. In the United States, the 2003 Harvard Dialect Survey tracked the usage of the nine most common names. Over half of the survey respondents preferred the term "soda", dominant in the Northeastern United States and the areas surrounding Milwaukee and St. Louis; the term "pop", preferred by 25% of the respondents, was most popular in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest, while the genericized trademark "coke", used by 12% of the respondents, was most popular in the Southern United States. The term "tonic" is hyperlocal to eastern Massachusetts. In the English-speaking parts of Canada, the term "pop" is prevalent, but "soft drink" is the most common English term used in Montreal. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the terms "fizzy drink" and the genericized trademark "coke" are common. "Pop" and "fizzy pop" are used in Northern England and the Midlands, while "mineral" or "lemonade" are used in Ireland. In Scotland, "fizzy juice" or simply "juice" is colloquially encountered.
In Australia and New Zealand, "fizzy drink" or "soft drink" is used. In South African English, "cool drink" and "cold drink" are used, but in South African Indian English, "cool drink" is most prevalent. Older people use the term "mineral"; the origins of soft drinks lie in the development of fruit-flavored drinks. In the medieval Middle East, a variety of fruit-flavoured soft drinks were drunk, such as sharbat, were sweetened with ingredients such as sugar and honey. Other common ingredients included lemon, pomegranate, jujube, musk and ice. Middle-Eastern drinks became popular in medieval Europe, where the word "syrup" was derived from Arabic. In Tudor England,'water imperial' was drunk. Another early type of soft drink was lemonade, made of water and lemon juice sweetened with honey, but without carbonated water; the Compagnie des Limonadiers of Paris was granted a monopoly for the sale of lemonade soft drinks in 1676. Vendors dispensed cups of the soft drink to Parisians. In the late 18th century, scientists made important progress in replicating carbonated mineral waters.
In 1767, Englishman Joseph Priestley first discovered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide to make carbonated water when he suspended a bowl of distilled water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England. His invention of carbonated water is the defining component of most soft drinks. Priestley found that water treated in this manner had a pleasant taste, he offered it to his friends as a refreshing drink. In 1772, Priestley published a paper entitled Impregnating Water with Fixed Air in which he describes dripping oil of vitriol onto chalk to produce carbon dioxide gas, encouraging the
The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations, it was the longest and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is used as an example of how intensely the world's economy can decline; the Great Depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929, became worldwide news with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929. Between 1929 and 1932, worldwide gross domestic product fell by an estimated 15%. By comparison, worldwide GDP fell by less than 1% from 2008 to 2009 during the Great Recession; some economies started to recover by the mid-1930s. However, in many countries the negative effects of the Great Depression lasted until the beginning of World War II; the Great Depression had devastating effects in countries both poor. Personal income, tax revenue and prices dropped, while international trade plunged by more than 50%.
Unemployment in the U. S. rose to 25% and in some countries rose as high as 33%. Cities around the world were hit hard those dependent on heavy industry. Construction was halted in many countries. Farming communities and rural areas suffered as crop prices fell by about 60%. Facing plummeting demand with few alternative sources of jobs, areas dependent on primary sector industries such as mining and logging suffered the most. Economic historians attribute the start of the Great Depression to the sudden devastating collapse of U. S. stock market prices on October 29, 1929, known as Black Tuesday. However, some dispute this conclusion and see the stock crash as a symptom, rather than a cause, of the Great Depression. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929 optimism persisted for some time. John D. Rockefeller said "These are days. In the 93 years of my life, depressions have gone. Prosperity has always returned and will again." The stock market turned upward in early 1930. This was still 30% below the peak of September 1929.
Together and business spent more in the first half of 1930 than in the corresponding period of the previous year. On the other hand, many of whom had suffered severe losses in the stock market the previous year, cut back their expenditures by 10%. In addition, beginning in the mid-1930s, a severe drought ravaged the agricultural heartland of the U. S. By mid-1930, interest rates had dropped to low levels, but expected deflation and the continuing reluctance of people to borrow meant that consumer spending and investment were depressed. By May 1930, automobile sales had declined to below the levels of 1928. Prices in general began to decline, although wages held steady in 1930. A deflationary spiral started in 1931. Farmers faced a worse outlook. At its peak, the Great Depression saw nearly 10% of all Great Plains farms change hands despite federal assistance; the decline in the U. S. economy was the factor. Frantic attempts to shore up the economies of individual nations through protectionist policies, such as the 1930 U.
S. Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act and retaliatory tariffs in other countries, exacerbated the collapse in global trade. By 1933, the economic decline had pushed world trade to one-third of its level just four years earlier. Change in economic indicators 1929–32 The two classical competing theories of the Great Depression are the Keynesian and the monetarist explanation. There are various heterodox theories that downplay or reject the explanations of the Keynesians and monetarists; the consensus among demand-driven theories is that a large-scale loss of confidence led to a sudden reduction in consumption and investment spending. Once panic and deflation set in, many people believed they could avoid further losses by keeping clear of the markets. Holding money became profitable as prices dropped lower and a given amount of money bought more goods, exacerbating the drop in demand. Monetarists believe that the Great Depression started as an ordinary recession, but the shrinking of the money supply exacerbated the economic situation, causing a recession to descend into the Great Depression.
Economists and economic historians are evenly split as to whether the traditional monetary explanation that monetary forces were the primary cause of the Great Depression is right, or the traditional Keynesian explanation that a fall in autonomous spending investment, is the primary explanation for the onset of the Great Depression. Today the controversy is of lesser importance since there is mainstream support for the debt deflation theory and the expectations hypothesis that building on the monetary explanation of Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz add non-monetary explanations. There is consensus that the Federal Reserve System should have cut short the process of monetary deflation and banking collapse. If they had done this, the economic downturn would have been much shorter. British economist John Maynard Keynes argued in The General Theory of Employment and Money that lower aggregate expenditures in the economy contributed to a massive decline in income and to employment, well below the average.
In such a situation, the economy reached equilibrium at low levels of economic activity and high unemployment. Keynes' basic idea was simple
Charles Patrick Ryan O'Neal is an American actor and former boxer. O'Neal trained as an amateur boxer before beginning his career in acting in 1960. In 1964, he landed the role of Rodney Harrington on the ABC nighttime soap opera Peyton Place; the series boosted O'Neal's career. He found success in films, most notably Love Story, for which he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations as Best Actor, Peter Bogdanovich's What's Up, Doc? and Paper Moon, Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, Richard Attenborough's A Bridge Too Far. He had a recurring role in the TV series Bones as the father of the series' protagonist. O'Neal was born in Los Angeles, the eldest son of actress Patricia Ruth Olga and novelist and screenwriter Charles O'Neal, his father was of English descent, while his mother was of paternal Irish ancestry. His brother, Kevin, is an screenwriter. O'Neal attended University High School in Los Angeles, trained there to become a Golden Gloves boxer. During the late 1950s, his father had a job writing on a television series called Citizen Soldier, moved the family to Munich, where O'Neal attended Munich American High School.
In Germany, O'Neal was struggling at school so his mother pulled some favors and got him a job as a stand-in on a show being shot in the area, Tales of the Vikings. O'Neal got the acting bug. O'Neal tried to make it as an actor, he made his first TV appearance guest starring on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis episode "The Hunger Strike" in 1960. He followed this with guest shots on The Untouchables, General Electric Theater, The DuPont Show with June Allyson, Two Faces West, Westinghouse Playhouse, Bachelor Father, My Three Sons, The Virginian, he was under contract to Universal but they let it lapse. From 1962 to 1963, O'Neal was a regular on NBC's Empire, another modern-day western, where he played "Tal Garrett" in support of Richard Egan, it ran for 33 episodes. The series was revived as O'Neal turned down the chance to reprise his role; when the series ended, O'Neal went back to guest-starring on shows such as Perry Mason and Wagon Train. In 1964 he was cast as Rodney Harrington in the prime time serial drama Peyton Place.
O'Neal said he got the role because "the studio was looking for a young Doug McClure". The series was a big success. Several were offered movie roles, including Mia Farrow and Barbara Parkins and O'Neal was keen to do films. During the series' run O'Neal appeared in a pilot for European Eye, he was signed to ABC for a recording contract. O'Neal's first lead in a feature came based on an Elmore Leonard novel, he appeared in a TV version of Under the Yum Yum Tree. He played an Olympic athlete in The Games. Neither film was successful; the Games had been co-written by Erich Segal, who recommended O'Neal for the lead in Love Story, based on Segal's novel and script. A number of actors had turned down the role including Beau Bridges and Jon Voight before it was offered to O'Neal, his fee was $25,000. Paramount studio head, Robert Evans, married to the film's female lead, Ali McGraw, said they tested 14 other actors but no one compared to O'Neal. "I don't want to go back to TV. I don't want to go back to those NAB conventions."In between the film's production and release, O'Neal appeared in a TV movie written by Eric Ambler, Love Hate Love, which received good ratings.
He made a Western, Wild Rovers with William Holden for director Blake Edwards. Love Story turned out to be a box office phenomenon, it earned him a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actor. Wild Rovers, badly cut by MGM, was less popular. O'Neal was going to make another film for Deadly Honeymoon from a novel by Larry Block. However, O'Neal pulled out - Peter Bogdanovich said MGM head Jim Aubrey was "cruel" to O'Neal, he was wanted by director Nic Roeg to appear opposite Julie Christie in an adaptation of Out of Africa, never made. Instead O'Neal starred in the screwball comedy What's Up Doc? for Bogdanovich opposite Barbra Streisand. This was the third-highest-grossing film of 1972 and led to him receiving an offer to star in a movie for Stanley Kubrick, Barry Lyndon. While that film was in pre-production, O'Neal played a jewel thief in The Thief Who Came to Dinner opposite Jacqueline Bisset and Warren Oates, he was reunited with Bogdanovich for Paper Moon in which he starred opposite his daughter Tatum O'Neal.
Tatum won an Oscar for her performance in the popular movie and in 1973, Ryan O'Neal was voted by exhibitors as the second-most-popular star in the country, behind Clint Eastwood. O'Neal spent over a year making Barry Lyndon for Kubrick; the resulting film had a mixed critical reception. Reflecting in 1985, O'Neal said the film was "all right but he changed the picture during the year he spent editing it
