“The lasting and ultimately most important reputation of a film is not based on reviews, but on what, if anything, people say about it over the years, and on how much affection for it they have.”

Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999)


Stanley Kubrick on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey. A giant centrifuge/Ferris wheel (seen here) was built for the set of the main compartment aboard the Discovery spacecraft. It was thirty-eight feet in diameter and about ten feet in width at the widest point. It rotated at a maximum speed of three miles per hour and had built into it desks, consoles, bunks for the astronauts and tomb-like containers for their hibernating companions. Kubrick monitored scenes shot inside of the centrifuge via closed-circuit television.
