Cryptokubrology: "A useful methodology for deconstructing cinema, history, and synchronicity." ~ says Alex Fulton (@Crypto-Kubruology), January 31, 2017.
Cryptokubrology has been defined as "digging through the works of Stanley Kubrick on the premise that its body is a muted mass of coded cabalistic ministrations comparable (in scope) to the works of William Shakespeare, but incomparable (in complexity) to anything in recorded history. In fact, Cryptokubrology has led to an entirely different view of so-called 'history' itself." ~ says Robert Shawn Montgomery (shawnfella)
The best evidence for finding true cryptokubrological insights may come from concentrating on the pre-The Shining examples.
The Crypto-K series gives incidents of "237" being found in films. But as opposed to hundreds or thousands of instances, the series only mentions 31 films or television episodes where the number 237 is mentioned or shown (for example as an address or room number). Of those, I find Fulton and Montgomery include only ten instances of pre-1980 cases of "237."
I have found others, such as in Torn Curtain (1966).
But let us look at those that Fulton and Montgomery cite in their videos from before and up to 1980. From watching their series, here is their complete list. These are enhanced with some of their screenshots, and revealed thus far (unless I missed any) where "237" specifically appears:
Shop Around The Corner (1940)
In the Good Old Summertime (1949)
The Three Faces of Eve (1957)
