Red Ink and Rewrites Too

Duplicates online comments, to keep track.

Discuss: Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ – Cinematical

I read that the scene of a board of scientists discussing intelligent life in the universe that Arthur C. Clarke was left on the cutting room floor and Stanley Kubrick decided in the interest of the film left out. It was said to have been the opening, so it was reported. I saw it on a perforated screen and the sound speakers were on a scaffold behind the screen. I wonder if it was dedicated to Richard Strauss who wrote the music used in the score and wrote “Metamorphosen” about the rubble that Germany became at the end of WW II.

Today it was reported after sixty years, trade has begun again in Kashmir between Pakistan and India. Maybe India probe on the way to the Moon will find a “Sentinel”.
