A truly brilliant and scary film from Stanley Kubrick.
I can't praise this film long enough! The Shining is, without doubt, one of Stanley Kubrick's undisputed masterpieces ...
As he lived in England, Stanley Kubrick was not at all familiar with the "Heeeeere's Johnny" line (from The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962)) that Jack Nicholson improvised. He very nearly didn't use it.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
The small painting above Jack and Wendy's bed is missing as Jack is talking to Danny.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
