Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Frank Poole and Dave Bowman watch themselves in a television interview on "BBC 12". This was a play on the fact that, at the time of production, there were only BBC channels 1 and 2. The presenter in this scene is Kenneth Kendall, the first newsreader seen on British TV in 1955.
  • Stanley Kubrick worked for several months with effects technicians to come up with a convincing effect for the floating pen in the shuttle sequence. After trying many different techniques, without success, Kubrick decided to simply use a pen that was taped to a sheet of glass and suspended in front of the camera. In fact, the shuttle attendant can be seen to "pull" the pen off the glass when she takes hold of it.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): As Heywood Floyd approaches the Tycho Monolith in the shuttle, the Earth is on the moon's horizon. But a short time later, when Floyd stands at the monolith and it emits its signal, the Earth is directly overhead.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Earth should appear closer to the horizon at Clavius than at Tycho, not vice versa.
