* LifeImitatesArt: In spite of the long ScienceMarchesOn listing below this, the movie features a brief sequence wherein HAL and Dave play chess together. This was years before computers were designed with the ability to play chess, and then later stacked up against Grandmasters.

* ShootTheMoney: The film had a $10.5 million budget, and $6.5 million of it was spent on the incredible special effects alone (in other words, basically the entire movie).

** The film's depiction of the lunar landscape owes much to the craggy, mountainous terrain that was common in science fiction before the Apollo landings. Nonetheless the film is surprisingly accurate given that the production predated even the Surveyor probes, let alone manned exploration.

* DeletedScene:
** Deleted scenes include details about the daily life on Discovery, additional space walks, astronaut Bowman retrieving a spare part from an octagonal corridor, a number of cuts from the Poole murder sequence including the entire space walk preparation and shots of HAL turning off radio contact with Poole--explaining HAL's response that the radio is "still dead" when Bowman asks him if radio contact has been made--and notably a close-up of Bowman picking up a slipper during his walk in the alien room; the slipper can still be seen behind him in what would have been the next shot in the sequence.
** The film originally opened with a ten-minute black-and-white opening sequence featuring interviews with actual scientists, including Freeman Dyson, discussing off-Earth life. Creator/StanleyKubrick removed it after an early screening for MGM executives.



* RealLifeRelative: Creator/StanleyKubrick's daughter Vivian plays Floyd's daughter.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Kubrick had allegedly asked Creator/OsamuTezuka to work as a production designer for the film, but sadly, The God of Manga was far too busy with his own projects to oblige.

Added DiffLines:

** Early drafts included a prologue containing interviews with scientists about off-Earth life, voice-over narration (a feature in all of Kubrick's previous films), a stronger emphasis on the prevailing Cold War balance of terror, and a different and more explicitly explained break-down for H.A.L. Other changes include a different monolith for the "Dawn of Man" sequence, discarded when early prototypes did not photograph well; the use of Saturn as the final destination of the Discovery mission rather than Jupiter, discarded when the special effects team could not develop a convincing rendition of Saturn's rings; and the finale of the Star Child detonating nuclear weapons carried by Earth-orbiting satellites, which Kubrick discarded for its similarity to his previous film, ''Film/DrStrangelove''. The finale and many of the other discarded screenplay ideas survived into Clarke's novel.
** Creator/JamesCoburn, Hugh O'Brian, Rod Taylor or George Hamilton were considered for Dr. Frank Poole.
** The film was originally to have ended just as it had in the book, with Bowman discovering the third monolith on Saturn's moon Japetus. This idea was scrapped, however, because the special effects crew was unable to make convincing-looking rings around Saturn.
* WorkingTitle: ''Across the Sea of Stars'', ''Universe'', ''Tunnel to the Stars'', ''Earth Escape'', ''Jupiter Window'', ''Farewell to Earth'', and ''Planetfall''.

* AwesomeDearBoy: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2c_rSLXq6U According to Gary Lockwood]], when his agent called him to say that Stanley Kubrick was doing a new movie called ''2001: A Space Odyssey'', Lockwood asked how much he had to pay Kubrick to be there.
