G | | Adventure, Sci-Fi
Humanity finds a mysterious, obviously artificial object buried beneath the Lunar surface and, with the intelligent computer H.A.L. 9000, sets off on a quest.
HAL's first words are not to Dave Bowman, rather to Frank Poole--"Excuse me, Frank."
Here you are, sir, main level please.
HAL 9000 calls his favorite song "Daisy." Although some viewers argue that the correct title is "A Bicycle Built for Two", the 1892 copyright record lists the title as "Daisy Bell."
No opening credits for actors, writers, producer, director, etc. are shown, with the story beginning right after the title. Although by the 1990s it had become quite common for major films to not have opening credits, it was still unusual in 1968.
