Julien's Auctions is very excited to bring this iconic costume from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey to auction today! As one of the most culturally significant artifacts that we've ever brought to auction, this spacesuit - with its iconic, multi-scene and color helmet and original MGM shipping crate - was made for and used in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968), which won many Academy Awards and is regarded as one of the most important films ever produced. The spacesuit is an amalgamation of components worn by different actors and in many scenes throughout the film. This is highlighted by a helmet featuring four distinct layers of paint (a base of color of white, then green, then yellow, and lastly in its present color of white), indicating that it was used in different scenes by multiple actors and representing a number of characters . This nearly complete costume is of the lunar type in its present state (silver body suit, blue back pack, white helmet). This suit appears to be original in silver (never repainted). However, due to the layering of paint, the helmet appears to have been employed as a lunar type, then two of the four Discovery types (green and then yellow; the other colors/types being red and blue), then as a lunar type again. This helmet has a textured strip of tape inside with "HELMET A" written across in red. Most notably, the base green layer of paint seen in chips, cracks, and green overspray throughout the helmet surface suggest that it may have been the very helmet worn by Keir Dullea, who portrayed Dr. Dave Bowman (the lead astronaut on the film’s Discovery mission to Jupiter) in the sequence in which he reenters antechamber of the Discovery surrounded by banks of circuit breakers leading to the "brain room" and logic center to “kill” HAL in one of the most famous science fiction scenes of all time ("Stop Dave. Stop Dave. I am afraid. I am afraid Dave."). #JuliensAuctions #Auction #SpaceOdyssey #StanleyKubrick #SpaceSuit #HAL #SciFi #ArthurCClarke #1960s #60s #Costume #Iconic #ScienceFiciton #Hollywood

Cette vente consacrée aux souvenirs hollywoodiens baptisée The Hollywood : Legends & Explorers a été organisée par Julien’s Auction la semaine dernière et rassemblait près de 900 objets dont certains peuvent être considérés comme de véritables trésors de l’histoire du cinéma. Par exemple, la fameuse combinaison immortalisée dans le chef-d’œuvre de Stanley Kubrick s’est arrachée pour une somme de 370.000 dollars selon NME.

Que de souvenirs

A côté de ça, la cape portée par Christopher Reeves dans les deux premières adaptations cinéma en long-métrage de Superman (en 1978 et 1980) a été achetée 110.000 dollars.

Enfin, une des Pontiac Firebird Trans Am de 1982 utilisée dans K-2000 et signée par David Hasselhoff a trouvé preneur à côté d’une pipe utilisée par Ian Holm lorsqu’il interprétait Bilbon Sacquet dans Le Seigneur des Anneaux : La Communauté de l’Anneau. Impossible de ne pas être nostalgique !
