Stanley Kubrick

1. – Douglas Rain, 2001: A Space Odyssey, 1968. “I’m afraid. I’m  afraid, Dave…” The script  has two voice-overs: Mission Control and, of course, HAL 9000, the mellifluent, murderous superputer.  And Kubrick played both. “Later on, when he was putting the picture together,” recalled Gary Lockwood, the luckless of his two astronauts, “he went out, by whatever genius he did or didn’t have,  and got a voice for HAL. [First,  Nigel Davenport, then Martin  Balsam, finally Rain]. That  person came in and said the same lines I heard  Stanley say while we were making the picture.” Jean-Louis Trintignant voiced the French HAL. He also dubbed Nicholson in The Shining for France.
