Happy birthday, Stanley Kubrick.

To celebrate, LIFE.com offers a series of photos from the set of ‘2001’ — pictures that suggest the astonishing lengths to which Kubrick was willing to go to make his vision a reality.

Pictured: Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

These are amazing.
