The injured guest who frightens Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) by saying "Great party, isn't it?"
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
During the job interview Ullman tells Jack that there is no skiing in the area, but in the first aerial shot of the hotel, to the left, a ski lift is clearly seen extending up the mountain.
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.
