Ending Scene
Clip Description
Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea)is in the bed and he is extremely old. He stares at the monolith, the single stone that stands like a huge stone book at the foot of the bed. He raises his hand and points at the stone monolith as if he finally understands. Slowly, his aged body begins turning into a bright glorious light. The light is so intense that for a brief moment, the viewer can’t see what is happening on the bed. Momentarily, something appears. It is an embryo with a nearly-born fetus in it.
Movie Description
Mankind finds a mysterious, obviously artificial, artifact buried on the moon and, with the intelligent computer HAL, sets off on a quest.
