“This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.”

This is, of course, one of the many, many famous lines from the ground-breaking movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”, first seen this day, April 2nd, 1968, in the Uptown Theatre in Washington D.C.

The General Release of the movie was on April 3rd (or 6th, depending on your source).  I saw it shortly thereafter while at college in Cleveland, Ohio.

Great, great movie – thanks again Sir Clarke and Mr. Kubrick…
