Trivia

John Williams was initially set to provide the score until Stanley Kubrick decided to go with a selection of music from different composers.


Quotes

Jack Torrance: Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.


Goofs

A caption reads "THURSDAY" and then shortly afterwards we see Wendy and Danny watching The Road Runner Show with its distinctive theme song. In the late 1970s that show played only on Saturday mornings.


Crazy Credits

After the 146 minute version of the film was met with poor reviews and weak box office in the US, Stanley Kubrick re-edited the film for European release, removing 24 minutes of footage. Included in the removed footage were the entire performances of Anne Jackson as the Doctor and Tony Burton as Larry. However, both Jackson and Burton's names were still listed in the opening credits despite them no longer appearing in the film.
