Re: Help!!!

Well it really depends, bc under one stance the monkeys ramblings could be considored the 1st sentence, but my guess is that it was when the waitress was walking down the space ship, and said some thiung like "may i take your tray dr. Floyed?"

1. We made it, sir.
2. Please fasten your seatbelt, sir.
3. What could that be, sir.
4. We've arrived, sir.

So, whats right???

Arrow First words in 2001

The actual first words in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY occur when Dr. Floyd arrives at the Space Station and the "lift" operator announces,

"Here you are sir, main level, please."

Re: Help!!!

I thought the first words were "A ladies cashmere sweater has been found...". These were spoken over the space station PA before anyone else speaks.

Re: Help!!!

In the Script this is the first line:


NARRATOR
By the year 2001, overpopulation has replaced the problem of starvation but this was ominously offset by theabsolute and utter perfection of the weapon.

The first spoken line is:

MILLER
Oh, good morning, Dr. Floyd.
I'm Nick Miller.
FLOYD
How do you do, Mr. Miller?

MILLER
I'm terribly sorry. I was just
on my way down to meet you. I
saw your ship dock and I knew I
had plenty of time, and I was on
my way out of the office when,
suddenly, the phone rang.

Re: Help!!!

Those first words are not spoken until 24 mins in the film

there are only 46 mins of dialouge out of the total 139 mins of the film!

Re: Help!!!

"Here you are, sir..." are the first words, HGN2001 was right. That would translate best as #4 on your list, maybe #1 as well.

Re: Help!!!

There was no narrator in 2001 the movie - only in the script which Kubrick later got rid of - right?
