The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day thinks this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! No, that headline doesn’t mean the column’s ending… it’s just the only quote I could think of that would make any sort of sense from 2001 and still fit within the character limits of the headline space. Today we have another photo featuring the great Stanley Kubrick, this time at an angle. The circular set built for 2001 is still one of the most amazing working sets I’ve ever seen on film. The jogging scene where Frank Poole runs the whole circle in one shot? Christ almighty! Trippy, hypnotic, suspenseful, beautiful, sad, poetic… all this and much more describes this great movie. And it’s also years ahead of its time. Rewatch it, notice the little touches that didn’t exist then that is commonplace now, like the TV screens in the back of air travel seats (space travel in the movie, but still). While it isn’t my personal favorite Kubrick film, 2001 is probably the best overall showcase of his talents. Here’s the pic! Enjoy!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes better not cuss at me! That cussing cuss! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter
