Facts about

Vivian Kubrick: the daughter of Stanley Kubrick plays Dr. Floyd's daughter.
According to Katharina Kubrick, Stanley Kubrick provided the breathing heard in the spacesuits.
Stanley Kubrick was initially forced by MGM to have Alex North (who had written the score for Kubrick's Spartacus) compose an original score for the 2001. Kubrick, however, always intended to use classical music for the film. He allowed North to score the first half of the film before informing him they planned to use only sound effects for the second half. It wasn't until he was watching the film at its premier in New York that North discovered that his music had not been. North later reused themes composed for 2001 in the films The Shoes of the Fisherman, Shanks, and Dragonslayer. North's original score was unheard for 25 years until composer Jerry Goldsmith re-recorded it for Varese Sarabande in 1993. In 2007, however, Intrada, working with Alex North's estate, released North's personal copies of the 1968 recording sessions on CD.
