Marilyn Monroe in Nevada on the set of "The Misfits", the last film that she completed. It's based on a short story that her husband Arthur Miller had developed into a screenplay with the idea of providing her with a role in a drama. Directed by John Huston, it was filmed in the Nevada desert, and focused on the friendship between a recently divorced woman and three aging cowboys. Filming was between July and November 1960.

28: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Kubrick's film of the book by Arthur C. Clarke is to some nowadays rather dull...I still find it amazing. A film that says in essence we are more than mere matter or even animals....we are Intelligence itself. Held by some rightly to be the greatest science fiction film of all time.
