Below is a link to a digitally restored PDF of the SK Playboy interview:

http://www.mediafire.com/view/vhv3cx7l16u4ba6/

I wanted to have this ready for SK's birthday last week, but matching the pre-digital era typography took longer than expected.

This is a pre-final review copy. I have to put this aside for a few weeks before I attempt to proof it again. Any glaring typos or fixes, just post here or e-mail.

I'm sure you'll agree that this looks better than the 47-year-old print version itself. I will post again when it's final.

Playboy gets cranky about reprinting their material, so the PDF is electronically signed to be screen viewing only. If you get the annoying digital signature bar in Acrobat, just click the green checkmark in the upper left to make it vanish.

Enjoy,

Steve

Why can't we just pull out our old Playboy from our collection, or read
it in the "The Making of 2001"?

Also, after hearing that Kubrick demanded to rewrite his interviews, and
listening to the tape of an actual verbal interview in the "2001" blu-ray
extras, I am not that interested in reading his carefully written responses
to questions he answered originally like an idiot.

Nothing's stopping you.

I wanted to preserve the original format due to that issue being almost half a century old, and Playboy not offering digital editions of these older back issues. It took locating two near-mint copies to get a clean scan of the 18 pages.

Yeah, going through that Playboy interview with a fine-tooth comb, it's obviously not a normal speaking voice being transcribed by an interviewer. The precise quotations SK uses throughout, for instance, are a dead giveaway of a re-written interview.

Now THAT'S taking "I only read Playboy for the articles" to a whole new
level...

Mediafire's online PDF viewer can't parse it. It's a signed/encrypted PDF to be downloaded and viewed in Adobe Acrobat.

Rod Munday has kindly transcribed Jun'ichi Yao's 1980 phoner with SK, where he goes into detail about the ending of 2001:aso (contrarily to his position in the 1968 Playboy interview).
