“Dave, I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I’ve still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you.”
Bluntly, Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the greatest science-fiction film made to date with memorabilia avidly sought and collected, particularly ‘country of origin’ examples…Offered here is perhaps the highest quality “2001″ film poster to come to market for a very long time…an original British 1968 folded (as issued – fold lines are ‘soft’ and hardy noticeable) UK quad film poster. Outstanding Robert McCall sci-fi artwork features the ‘Space-Wheel’ from one of the most scenes in the movie when accompanied by the classical music score from the ‘Blue Danube’. As you would expect colours are deep and unfaded and literally ‘pop’ from the paper. Totally original and unrestored in exceptional folded (as issued) condition…It is easily the best example of this poster I have ever offered for sale and represents a true investment grade piece of original highly collectible cinema movie memorabilia. A science fiction fantasy, it is one of the most original films ever made, by one of the greatest ever film-makers.
Trivia: Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” was the last movie made about men on the moon before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked there in real life in 1969. More than 50 years later there are still conspiracy theorists who insist that this is not a coincidence, claiming that all footage of Armstrong’s voyage was a hoax film directed by Stanley Kubrick using leftover scenes and props from this movie.…more detail
