Description

    2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1969). One Sheet (27" X 41") Starchild style.
    When MGM decided to re-launch the 70mm prints of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey into New York theatres, the studio decided to revamp the ad campaign as well. The film had been in continuous release since April 1968 and due to that popularity, the studio decided it was time to refresh the ads. The two new posters that were created out of this capitalized on the film's surreal ending and the news that young people were flocking to the film to view the surreal ending. The tag line, "The Ultimate Trip" was used and the posters were distributed in a wilded campaign in New York City. Since they weren't being distributed by National Screen Service, none of that information was ever printed on the posters. The vast majority of these were glued to walls around the city for the wilded campaign and thus, were destroyed in the process. Only a handful of unused examples have survived and of the two, this Starchild style is even more scarce than the Psychedelic Eye. Heritage has only offered other examples of this poster twice before. Other than a diagonal crease in the upper right corner and a couple of small crimps on the edges and within the image area, this poster is essentially unused and very clean. Rolled, Very Fine+.
