More than 40 leading commercial companies offered up their research facilities tc the picture, and you see how the astronauts of the future eat, dress, sleep, exercise and work. Because of this technical accuracy, "2001" passes beyond the realm of common science ' fiction. Post - Times, Sunday, Nov. 17, 196&-D13 Movie Review . -3 , "A . " If , 1 if y sa v-'l ' .- ,w - i . a n . Lit 4 suspense with which, we are familiar, where outcomes are conceivable. The suspense here is pure and genuine. There are no known factors, no finite possibilities, and outcomes lie in the realm of the unknown. Does it have a story? Yes. But Kubrick does not reduce the intellectual level of this film by spelling out conclusions for you. "2001" poses questions, severs the shackles that confine thought to the finite. Answers and conclusions are left up to you. Hippo Born In Zoo CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -Cleveland zoo got a surprise addition Thursday with the arrival of a 30 pound baby hippopotamus. Charles Voracek, the zoo's public service director, said nobody knew the baby hippo's mother, Big Red, was preg nant. "Big Red seemed a little bit irritated," Voracek said. "But that is quite normal for her." The journey of the deep space exploration ship "Discovery," manned by astronauts Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, is fiction only in. the sense that it has not yet taken place. Many who have not seen this film ask, "What's the plot?" or "Dors it tell a story?" "2001" does not have a plot . per se. It does have suspense, but not the kind of situation experience, an adventure in iutas. - "2001" takes you on a Journey through space and time to the moon, the planets, the stars and places (times?) beyond. Producer-director and coauthor Stanley Kubrick achieves a new dimension in cinematography. Despite the fact that lie is dealing with happenings beyond man's present experience, what he shows on' screen is real, as real as any familiar earthbound setting. Kubrick achieves this sense of reality through truly masterful photography and meticulous attention to the technical details of space science. There is a complete absense of gimmicks, so common in other films of space adventure. In the beginning scenes, "The Dawn of Man," the ape-men are e.' ii more realistic than in the film "Planet of the Apes." In the earlh-orbiting space station we find a Bell Telephone picture-phone, a futuristic Pan American space cralt, even a Howard Johnson's lounge. Black typography on stark white walls stresses the clean functional simplicity of the design of the space station, which extends a curving 150 feet. The space craft "Discovery," represents a monumental achievement In projection of what space vehicles will be like In the future. It was through no accident that Kubrick achieved this high degree of technical excellence. To make "2uol" a technical team was gathered from all corners of the industrial world. Scientific consultants from a dozen nations, including leading space authorities, were constantly at Kubrick's side to give authenticity and guidance to each aspect of this ., iim OiMo'imi n nif mi aflisi f im 'ill imn a HiiKtri Theaters This Week LOVE STORY Oskar Werner and Barbara Ferris, stars of "Interlude," share a carefree romantic weekend in this scene from the film, now playing at the Colony Theater in Palm Beach.
