Since no deleted film was saved we are never going to see cut scenes on DVD, but there are stills I have collected and will give quotes and text from the novel about them when possible.

"I'll tell you right now on A Clockwork Orange, we had
cans of negative outtakes and prints, which we had stored in an area at
Stanley's house where we worked out of, which Kubrick personally supervised the loading of
it to a truck and then I went down to a big industrial waste lot and burned it.
That's what he wanted." - Leon Vitali, Stanley Kubrick's Assistant 5/01
"There are no outtakes and we wouldn't show them if there were." Katharina Kubrick 6/08
"They can't be outtakes as he's had them all incinerated." Jon Ronson from Stanley Kubrick's Boxes 7/15/08

MM looks very animated about something as SK casually looks at him.
There would have to be a scene of the men attacking Alex at the end of the film, but on the DVD commentary Malcolm says the actor wasn't available for it later so it was scrapped in favor of the tramp attack.
The actor playing the Professor is Billy Russell. He died on 11/25/71 this could explain it. Since it was filmed 1/27/71 by the time he was needed for the end scene he could've been too ill to return.
"We did a sequence in Aylesbury. The town square was decorated with giant rubber ducks, weird animals, they were huge, and we accosted an old guy from the library. I ripped out these priceless books that he had and I threw them up. I remember my line, it was taken from the book, it was: 'There's a mackerel of a cornflake for you.' The pages from the ripped books fall like confetti. The retribution was that Alex goes to the library when he is cured and all the old codgers in the library go: 'You were the one!' - Malcolm McDowell in Camera 2 - Summer 2002
So we scatted out into the big winter nochy and walked down
Marghanita Boulevard and then turned into Boothby Avenue, and there we found
what we were pretty well looking for, a malenky jest to start off the evening
with. There was a doddery starry schoolmaster type veck, glasses on and his rot
open to the cold nochy air. He had books under his arm and a crappy umbrella and
was coming round the corner from the Public Biblio, which not many lewdies used
these days. You never really saw many of the older bourgeois type out after
nightfall those days, what with the shortage of police and we fine young
malchickiwicks about, and this prof type chelloveck was the only one walking in
the whole of the street. So we goolied up to him, very polite, and I said: 'Pardon me, brother.'
'An old man of your age, brother,' I said, and I started to rip up the book I'd got, and the others did the same with the ones they had. Dim and Pete doing a tug-of-war with The Rhombohedral System. The starry prof type began to creech: 'But those are not mine, those are the property of the municipality, this is sheer wantonness and vandal work,' or some such slovos. And he tried to sort of wrest the books back off of us, which was like pathetic. 'You deserve to be taught a lesson, brother,' I said, 'that you do.' This crystal book I had was very tough-bound and hard to razrez to bits, being real starry and made in days when things were made to last like, but I managed to rip the pages up and chuck them in handfuls of like snowflakes, though big, all over this creeching old veck, and then the others did the same with theirs, old Dim just dancing about like the clown he was. 'There you are,' said Pete. 'There's the mackerel of the cornflake for you, you dirty reader of filth and nastiness.'
around the old ladies
Alex and company bribe some old ladies to provide cover for them while they rob a store.
Makeup test for
the three old ladies
In the film we only see the Duke in the scene after Alex knocks Georgie and Dim into the water and he takes them there and asks them about the Cat Lady.
This scene was only needed as an alibi when the droogs robbed Slouse's shop and that scene wasn't filmed.
This was filmed at the Rainbow Bar 9/7/70, this is a different location than what became the Duke of New York in the film. The actresses were Helen Ford, Olive Mercer & Winifred Sabine
Helen was 76 at the time and died 1/19/82. Olive only had TV roles and has no credits since 1977 so it's unknown what happened to her. Winifred also only had TV roles in the 60s & 70s and none since 1975. A woman with the same name died in New York 1998, possibly her.
thing was to do the sammy act, which was one way to unload some of our cutter so
we'd have more of an incentive like for some shop-crasting, as well as it being
a way of buying an alibi in advance, so we went into the Duke of New York on
Amis Avenue and sure enough in the snug there were three or four old baboochkas
peeting their black and suds on SA (State Aid). Now we were the very good
malchicks, smiling good evensong to one and all, though these wrinkled old
lighters started to get all shook, their veiny old rookers all trembling round
their glasses, and making the suds spill on the table. 'Leave us be,
lads,' said one of them, her face all mappy with being a thousand years
old, 'we're only poor old women.' But we just made with the zoobies,
flash flash flash, sat down, rang the bell, and waited for the boy to come. When
he came, all nervous and rubbing his rookers on his grazzy apron, we ordered us
four veterans - a veteran being rum and cherry brandy mixed, which was popular
just then, some liking a dash of lime in it, that being the Canadian variation.
Then I said to the boy:
'Give these poor old baboochkas over there a nourishing something. Large Scotchmen all round and something to take away.' And I poured my pocket of deng all over the table, and the other three did likewise, O my brothers. So double firegolds were bought in for the scared starry lighters, and they knew not what to do or say. One of them got out 'Thanks, lads,' but you could see they thought there was something dirty like coming. Anyway, they were each given a bottle of Yank General, cognac that is, to take away, and I gave money for them to be delivered each a dozen of black and suds that following morning, they to leave their stinking old cheenas' addresses at the counter. Then with the cutter that was left over we did purchase, my brothers, all the meat pies, pretzels, cheese-snacks, crisps and chocbars in that mesto, and those too were for the old sharps. Then we said: 'Back in a minoota,' and the old ptitsas were still saying: 'Thanks, lads,' and 'God bless you, boys,' and we were going out without one cent of cutter in our carmans.
We were back in the Duke of New York
very skorry and I reckoned by my watch we hadn't been more than ten minutes
away. The starry old baboochkas were still there on the black and suds and
Scotchmen we'd bought them, and we said: 'Hallo there, girlies, what's it
going to be?' They started on the old 'Very kind, lads, God bless you,
boys,' and so we rang the collocoll and brought a different waiter in this
time and we ordered beers with rum in, being sore athirst, my brothers, and
whatever the old ptitsas wanted. Then I said to the old baboochkas: 'We
haven't been out of here, have we? Been here all the time, haven't we?'
They all caught on real skorry and said:
'That's right, lads. Not been out of our sight, you haven't. God bless you, boys,' drinking.
Driving at Dawn
This picture is what we would've seen if they showed Alex and his droogs driving home after the attack on Mrs. Alexander.
the Durango 95
This shows the filming of the droogs getting ready to steal the car.
The autos parked by the sinny weren't all that horrorshow, crappy starry veshches most of them, but there was a newish Durango 95 that I thought might do. Georgie had one of these polyclefs, as they called them, on his keyring, so we were soon aboard - Dim and Pete at the back, puffing away lordly at their cancers - and I turned on the ignition and started her up and she grumbled away real horrorshow, a nice warm vibraty feeling grumbling all through your guttiwuts. Then I made with the noga, and we backed out lovely, and nobody viddied us take off.
Alex and company ride the train home and vandalize it.
Alex sticks his hand between a milk dispenser's legs
In the film only Dim is seen getting milk and gives probably his most famous line talking to the dispenser, so another shot of Alex getting milk would've just been redundant. The picture above shows Alex making a nasty gesture which would've been fun to show.
No pictures have turned up from this scene.
This occurs after Alex picks up the two girls and the record store before he takes them home.
The scene makes sense in the context of the book in that it seems Alex decides to rape the girls because he is so repulsed at their gluttonous behavior. In the film it wouldn't work since they are all consenting adults.
In the trailer there is a shot of Alex's snake leaving his room that isn't in the film. There is no snake in the novel, so no equivalent.
After Alex has sex with the two girls his dad comes home and the girls try to sneak out and are caught. In the novel the girls are 10 and plied with alcohol, so no equivalent.
Joe the lodger's scene was longer.
"The scene with Joe the lodger and Alex's mum breaking down was originally much bigger. Alex's father and the two nude girls after the high-speed bedroom scene with Alex - the only one I really missed." ACO editor Bill Butler 2001
Alex & the Chaplain at the Priest's Study, Bathroom & the Weights Room next door.

Scan of Alex chasing the girl
On the call sheets this was called 'Rape Fantasy' that's why think this sequence was cut out because it shows Alex chasing the girl down and she looks horrified. It looks like he ripped her clothes off and she is trying to get away. By only showing the girl on top of Alex in the film it makes her look happy and it's consensual. You can't rape someone who is on top of you, they have to want to be there or they could jump off. This way Alex's final line, "I was cured all right" is ambiguous which Kubrick preferred. Was he cured to go back to his raping ways or was he cured to experience physical love?
As the music came to its climax, I could viddy myself very clear, running and running on very light and mysterious feet, carving the whole face of the creeching world with my cut throat britva. I was cured all right.
This scene was of Kubrick's invention and has no equivalent in the novel.
