Beyond awesome. Thank you so much!

I'd never seen some of these before. Where did you get them from?

I thought the most striking thing about this collection was how dated the audio equipment looked.

This is excellent and in hi-rez. But why are they all B&W here when many of them were in color?

Great photos! I wonder how many directors are as well dressed today.

IF you made a film like 2001 today, it's obvious that the CGI would be quite good, but there is something about building a huge set and walking on it that only helps the filmaker and his creative process. Clarke and Kubrick were challenged to make "a good science fiction film" because up until that point, there had never been a serious attempt to show spaceflight or dealing with other worlds. The money MGM put up was gutsy on their part but with Kubrick at the helm, I think the suits knew that this was going to be a special film and quite memorable. When the reviews came out after the films release I recall what Time Magazine said; " the most dazzling special affects in the history of the cinema". I was ten years old and I remember it to this day.

Thank you very much for this! I can't stress how happy I am to see these pictures. Thank you!!

I think they are still the most dazzling special effects ever -- and I've seen the 2nd place magnificent Gravity. 2001 was a mind blower in 1968 and it still is. It is so daring it takes your breath away.
