Arthur Lipsett (13 May 1936 – May 1, 1986) was a Canadian avant-garde director of short experimental films who worked for the National Film Board of Canada. His first film Very Nice, Very Nice – a 7 min long piece – was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Short Subject, Live Action Subjects in 1962. Despite not winning the Oscar, this film brought Lipsett considerable praise from critics and directors. Stanley Kubrick was one of Lipsett’s fans, and asked him to create a trailer for his upcoming movie Dr. Strangelove. Lipsett declined Kubrick’s offer. Kubrick went on to direct the trailer himself; however, Lipsett’s influence on Kubrick is clearly visible when watching the trailer.
