In a shot of the kitchen in the Torrance's Boulder apartment, Ivory and Joy dishwashing liquid are seen on a shelf.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
The shadow from the camera is visible on Wendy and Jack when they enter the apartment for the first time during the tour near the beginning of the film.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
