Happy 50th birthday, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” here’s the short film that “inspired” it

“2001: A Space Odyssey” is getting a VERY limited 50th anniversary “unrestored” re-release, presumably on 70mm celluloid at a few theaters that can still show it.

The mind-blowing effects in it were the result of Stanley the K. playing with chemicals. And it’s not what you think.

And a 1960 Canadian planetarium documentary drove Kubrick’s “mind trip” sequence.

Here it is.
