Trivia

To get Jack Nicholson in the right agitated mood, he was only fed cheese sandwiches for two weeks, which he hates.


Quotes

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


Goofs

(at around 1h 45 mins) Jack is chasing Wendy on the stairs. When the camera is on Jack, he has his hands up asking for the bat, then the camera goes on Wendy and we see Jack's hands down. The camera is back on Jack and his hands are up again.


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.
