Description2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). Cinerama One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C, with Letter (8.5" X 11"), Robert McCall Artwork.
Artist Robert T. McCall had been commissioned by NASA to document the space program's achievements, and so became a logical choice by MGM to design the campaign for 2001: A Space Odyssey. McCall did several posters for the film, but this is by far the rarest. This style C was only used in theaters presenting the film in Cinerama, and since not many theatres were set up for it, these posters were distributed in very small quantities. Featuring a fantastic image with an incredible use of perspective, this poster was a gift from Kubrick himself to McCall and was from the artist's estate, as is verified by an included letter from McCall's daughter. In celebration of this monumental film's 50th anniversary, Heritage ecstatically offers one of the rarest and most collectible posters in the sci-fi genre. This amazing one sheet shows only slight edge wear, mild creasing, and a few unobtrusive smudges. Rolled, Very Fine+.
Estimate: $6,000 - $12,000.
