Awesome hub. I have never seen the first poster in the hub...and I have seen lots of Space Odyssey posters. I love the movie Paths of Glory...but I do not think that the first poster does the movie justice as it is not a Douglas action flick at all. I would say the second Odyssey poster, Full Metal Jacket and Clockwork Orange are probably not only his most famous posters but some of the best of all time as well.

I will be sure to link this poster hub to my Kubrick hub as well....not that it will bring much traffic as it(my hub) seems to be hiding in a closet collecting dust...lol.

Voted up and across the board....job well done my friend.

Thank you for commenting on my Kubrick poster hub Bruce, it is appreciated mon ami.

When you linked my Cleopatra hub to your Liz Taylor hub it added 100 views to my old hub, cheers for that. :)

This hub was easier than the others because Kubrick has only directed a dozen films in his lifetime. 12 films between 1955 and 1999. And half of them are masterpieces.

That first poster was used in the re-issue of 2001 after it was reported that thousands of hippies would flock to see the film and it's psychedelic 'lightshow' high on drugs.

The film went from being "an epic drama of adventure and exploration" to "the Ultimate Trip" within a year or two of release. :)

I see what you mean about Paths of Glory, well the publicity department wanted to get as many people to see it as possible but as you say it wasnt an action movie at all.
