Trivia

Music would often be played on-set to help Danny Lloyd get into the right spirit for each scene.


Quotes

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


Goofs

The song played in the ballroom scenes is "Midnight, the Stars, and You", which wasn't recorded until 1932, 11 years after the scene takes place. This fits with the recurring theme of a time warp paradox.


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.
