Trivia

The 1921 photograph prop still survives, intact, and can be seen in Stanley Kubrick exhibitions. It is possible to notice, on a close inspection, how Jack Nicholson's airbrushed head was pasted on the photo, as it sticks out a bit.


Quotes

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


Goofs

When Mr. Ullman interviews Jack and explains why the hotel is closed for the winter, he finished his sentence while his left hand grabs his right. A second later, it is his right hand grabbing his left - a mirror image.


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.
