Description

    2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). One Sheet (27" X 41") Starchild Style.
    Stanley Kubrick's ground-breaking science fiction epic redefined the term "special effects." Based on Arthur C. Clarke's short story, "The Sentinel," the story follows two astronauts (Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood) on their mission to Jupiter as they search for the source of an alien transmission in deep space. This fabulous one sheet was distributed at the same time as the "Psychedelic Eye" one sheet, which we have sold for $13,800 in a past auction. When MGM decided to revamp the advertising campaign for this blockbuster film in 1969, they chose the tagline "The Ultimate Trip." The "Eye" and the "Star Child" posters were conceived for this 1969, 70mm relaunch in New York City. This poster was primarily used for wilding (i.e. posting on building sites, etc.). The "Star Child" was retained for subsequent releases for the next decade and thus the image is the more common of the two. The original printing of the "Eye" and "Star Child" posters have no NSS or other information in the bottom border, as they were created in rush time, not knowing if the campaign would take. We sold another copy of this poster in July 2008 for over $3100! This one sheet is in superb condition, with only light edge wear and very faint creasing. A highly coveted piece of cinema history, perfect for the highly discerning collector. Rolled, Very Fine+.
