    • Kubrick Tried to Buy Alien Insurance. Just before NASA’s Mariner 4 spacecraft passed Mars in July 1965, a worried Kubrick attempted to take out an insurance policy with Lloyd’s of London—in case the discovery of extraterrestrial life ruined the plot he was then working on with science-fiction writer Arthur C.

    • It Took a Village. Some of the film’s most iconic features were decided during production for purely practical reasons. The mysterious black monolith began as a translucent Plexiglas tetrahedron, which ultimately assumed a monolith shape because Plexiglas cools better that way.
