A guaranteed original U.K. Quad movie poster for Stanley Kubrick's astonishing sci-fi epic, 1968's "2001: A Space Odyssey".
Based on the short story "The Sentinel" by Arthur C. Clarke, the screenplay was written jointly by Kubrick and Clarke. Although financed by MGM from the U.S., the film was largely made in the U.K and the movie's ground-breaking visual effects earned Kubrick an Oscar. One of four of the film's nominations.
This superb poster carries the iconic 'space wheel' artistry of Bob McCall, the most iconic poster image for one of the most influential films of all-time.
It was originally issued folded (as were the vast majority of posters at the time) and four drawing pins were used to hold it for display at some point in its 54 year history.
It has now been professionally linen-backed and as our photos show, displays incredibly well. This is certainly a poster that we would love to hold on to.
Interestingly, it still retains the 'U' reclassification sticker and the banner text 'An epic drama of adventure and exploration' is a sticker over the originally printed text 'Your greatest adventure awaits you in'.
A quite wonderful poster for one of the most iconic films of the 20th century.
