Product Description

MGM Original One Sheet Poster (27x41). Star-Child style. Mike Kaplan Artwork. Folded. Very Fine Plus Condition.

Original MGM One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Stanley Kubrick science fiction masterpiece, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) starring Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, and William Sylvester. Based on the Arthur C. Clarke story called "The Sentinel," the film is essentially a story about evolution. The art on this poster, which is called the StarChild poster, is by Mike Kaplan. The poster is folded and is in very fine plus condition. This poster has a matte finish. This style was also printed on a glossier stock, but this poster is not. Because the picture played at various theaters off and on for several years, there are various versions of this poster with different copyright dates. This poster is stamped "1SH 68_103G" on the reverse side of the poster. The printed data at the bottom of the poster reads (in part): LITHO IN U.S.A. COPYRIGHT 1971 BY: METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. 68/103G. There is different thought in the market about whether this poster is a re-release. This poster and the "psychedelic eye" style were both created initially in 1969. They were used extensively to help with the marketing of the movie which played more or less continuously for two to three years; therefore, we consider this poster original. In 1974, MGM re-released the film officially, and therefore we consider 1974 posters re-release posters.
