.Director Stanley Kubrick co-wrote the screenplay with novelist Diane Johnson.^ With co-screenwriter Diane Johnson, Kubrick moved from the conventions of traditional horror film thrillers, displacing them with his own, much more subtle, rich, symbolic motifs.

.The film stars Jack Nicholson as tormented writer Jack Torrance, Shelley Duvall as his wife Wendy, and Danny Lloyd as their son, Danny.^ In the kitchen/dinette of the Torrance's home in Boulder, Colorado [where they have lived only about three months after relocating from Vermont where Jack was a school teacher], seven year-old son Danny (Danny Lloyd) eats a lunch of white-bread and milk with his passive, skinny, black-haired mother "Wendy" Winifred (Shelley Duvall), who is reading The Catcher in the Rye .

.Unlike most Stanley Kubrick films which saw a slow graduated release building on word-of-mouth reputation, The Shining was released in a manner more like a mass-market film, opening at first in just two cities on Memorial Day, and then a month later seeing a nationwide release (including to drive-ins) after extensive television advertising.^ Stanley Kubrick had the scene removed a week after the film was released."

[1] Nonetheless, initial response to the film was mixed and at first it performed moderately at the box office. The subsequent European release was almost half an hour shorter. Later critical assessment of the film has been more favorable and it is now viewed as a classic of the horror genre by critics such as Roger Ebert and other directors like Martin Scorsese.[2] Its iconic and surreal imagery is now deeply embedded throughout popular culture.

.After its premiere and a week into the general run (with a running time of 146 minutes), Kubrick cut a scene at the end that took place in a hospital.^ I recall that over the film's first weekend, Kubrick had the scene cut from the few prints that were circulating at the time, with a personal representative making the edits at each theatre.

The scene had Wendy in a bed talking with Mr. Ullman, the man who hired Jack at the beginning of the film. He explains that her husband's body could not be found, raising several questions and implications. .He then walks over to Danny and hands him a yellow tennis ball, presumably the same one that lured Danny into room 237, thus informing the audience that Ullman was well aware of the supernatural events happening at the hotel.^ Wendy: You went into the room Danny said - to 237?

As noted by Roger Ebert:
.If Jack did indeed freeze to death in the labyrinth, of course his body was found—and sooner rather than later, since Dick Hallorann alerted the forest rangers to serious trouble at the hotel.^ Outside the storeroom, as Wendy departs with Jack and Ullman, Danny is offered ice cream by Hallorann: "Would you like ice cream, Doc?...I thought you did."

For international versions, Kubrick shot different takes of Wendy reading the typewriter pages in different languages. .For each language, a suitable idiom was used: German (Was du heute kannst besorgen, das verschiebe nicht auf morgen—"Never put off till tomorrow what may be done today"), Italian (Il mattino ha l’oro in bocca – "The morning has gold in its mouth"), French (Un «Tiens» vaut mieux que deux «Tu l'auras» – "What you have is worth much more than what you'll have", the equivalent of "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"), Spanish (No por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano – "No matter how early you get up, you can't make the sun rise any sooner").^ You set 'em up and I'll knock 'em back, Lloyd, one by one.

The entire film was shot on soundstages at EMI Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, England. The set for the Overlook Hotel was then the largest ever built.

They are noticeable because the hedge maze is missing. Some of the interiors are based on those of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park. The Timberline Lodge requested Kubrick change the sinister Room 217 of King's novel to 237, so customers would not avoid the real room 217.
The Overlook Hotel (Timberline Lodge).
The massive set would be Kubrick's first use of the Steadicam. The door that Jack breaks down with the axe near the end of the film was a real door. Kubrick originally used a fake door, made of a weaker wood, but Jack Nicholson, who had worked as a volunteer fire marshal, tore it down too quickly. Jack's line, "Heeeere's Johnny!", is taken from the famous introduction for The Tonight Show host Johnny Carson, as spoken by Ed McMahon. The line was improvised by Nicholson. Carson later used the Nicholson clip to open his 1980 Anniversary Show on NBC.

Duvall eventually became so overwhelmed by the stress of her role that she became physically ill for months. At one point she was under so much stress that her hair began to fall out.

He learned most of his lines just minutes before he was supposed to film them. The shooting schedule was often very long and according to Nicholson's then-girlfriend Anjelica Huston, he would come home after a day's work, immediately collapse into bed and be fast asleep within minutes.

Reception

The film had a slow start at the box office, but gained momentum and steam, eventually doing well commercially and making Warner Bros. a profit.

Kubrick made other changes that King disparaged. King especially viewed the casting of Nicholson as a mistake and a tip-off to the audience (due to Nicholson's identification with the character of McMurphy in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest) that the character Jack would eventually go mad. However, the author's animosity toward Kubrick's adaptation has dulled over time. .During an interview segment on the Bravo channel, King admitted that the first time he watched Kubrick's adaptation, he found it to be "dreadfully unsettling". King finally supervised a television adaptation of his original novel in 1997, which received lukewarm reviews.^ I recall that over the film's first weekend, Kubrick had the scene cut from the few prints that were circulating at the time, with a personal representative making the edits at each theatre.

The final scene alone demonstrates what a rich source of perplexity The Shining offers. At first sight this is an extremely simple, even static film. A family move into a Colorado hotel for the winter so Dad can write his great literary work in peace while perform­ing his function as caretaker. But the ancient blood­-soaked visions recorded like old movie scenes in the hotel's walls emerge, and Jack is possessed, driven homicidal....(Emphasis added)
It all seems simple enough - the Big Bad Wolf storms around with an axe, the Little Pigs (his snarling sobriquet for Wendy and Danny) escape. .At the time of the film's release many critics were unim­pressed by this schema - Kubrick had put so much effort into his film, building vast sets at Elstree, mak­ing a 17-week shoot stretch to 46, and what was the result?^ Stanley Kubrick had the scene removed a week after the film was released."

A silly scare story - something that, it was remarked at the time, Roger Corman could have turned around in a fortnight.
But look beyond the simplicity and the Overlook reveals itself as a palace of paradox....
Romney then goes on to talk about how skilled and subtle the building of atmosphere is in the film, and how effectively the film absorbs the viewer into the cabin fever of the characters, through the use of set design, lighting, and timing.
The dominating presence of the Overlook Hotel - designed by Roy Walker as a composite of American hotels visited in the course of research - is an extraor­dinary vindication of the value of mise en scène. It's a real, complex space that we don't just see but come to virtually inhabit. The confinement is palpable: hor­ror cinema is an art of claustrophobia, making us loath to stay in the cinema but unable to leave. Yet it's combined with a sort of agoraphobia - we are as frightened of the hotel's cavernous vastness as of its corridors' enclosure. When Jack attempts to write in the huge Colorado Lounge we wonder what's getting to him more - being imprisoned in his own head or being adrift at his desk as though at sea.
.Far from being the 'static' film that it appears on the surface, the film sets up a complex dynamic between simple domesticity and magnificent grandeur, between the supernatural and the mundane in which the viewer is disoriented by the combination of spaciousness and confinement, and an uncertainty as to just what is real or not.^ I did not see Far and Away either, but Kidman has had good chemistry with other male co-stars - just not Cruise in this film.

Romney goes on to note how the film has been interpreted in so many different ways, as being about the crisis in masculinity, sexism, corporate America, and racism. He also notes
It's tempting to read The Shining as an Oedipal struggle not just between generations but between Jack's culture of the written word and Danny's culture of images....Jack also uses the written word to more mundane purpose - to sign his "contract" with the Overlook. "I gave my word," he says, which we take to mean 'gave his soul' in the traditional Faustian sense. .But maybe he means it more literally - by the end of the film he has renounced language entirely, pursuing Danny through the maze with an inarticulate animal roar.^ Maybe King was right, that Kubrick was attempting to make the be-all, end-all horror film with no previous experience in the genre.
  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

What he has entered into is a conventional business deal that places commercial obligation - the provi­sion of services - over the unspoken contract of com­passion and empathy that he seems to have neglected to sign with his family.
References in the form of both parodies and homages to The Shining are prominent in U.S. popular culture, particularly in movies, TV shows and other visual media, as well as music.[18][19][20][21] See "In popular culture" for more info.

.The earliest and most well-known of these readings was an essay by ABC reporter Bill Blakemore entitled "The Family of Man" first published in the San Francisco Chronicle in July 1987.[24] (Blakemore is best-known as a spearhead for global warming issues and having been ABC News' Vatican Correspondent since 1970.) He believes that indirect references to the American slaughter of Native Americans pervade the film as exemplified by the Indian logos on the baking powder in the kitchen and Indian artwork that appears throughout the hotel, though no Native Americans are ever seen.^ I wondered why I never heard of it before since his other movies like 2001, Clockwork Orange, etc were so well known.

Blakemore's general argument is that the film as a whole is a metaphor for the genocide of Native Americans. He notes that when Jack kills Hallorann, the dead body is seen lying on a rug with an Indian motif. The blood in the elevator shafts is, for Blakemore, the blood of the Indians in the burial ground on which the hotel was built. As such, the fact that the date of the final photograph is July 4th is meant to be deeply ironic. Blakemore writes,
.As with some of his other movies, Kubrick ends The Shining with a powerful visual puzzle that forces the audience to leave the theater asking, "What was that all about?"^ She sneaks some authenticity into a movie that's all about theatricality.

.The caption reads: "Overlook Hotel-July 4th Ball-1921." The answer to this puzzle, is that most Americans overlook the fact that July Fourth was no ball, nor any kind of Independence day, for native Americans; that the weak American villain of the film is the re-embodiment of the American men who massacred the Indians in earlier years; that Kubrick is examining and reflecting on a problem that cuts through the decades and centuries.^ Re Stephen King and Kubrick's "The Shining": While King has voiced some problems with it thematically (de-emphasizing the domestic violence theme) and criticised Kubrick for thinking he could make the be all, end all horror film with no experience in the genre, he's generally been complimentary of it.

Film writer John Capo similarly sees the film as an allegory of American imperialism as exemplified by many clues such as the closing photo of Jack in the past at a 4th of July party, or Jack's earlier citation of the Rudyard Kipling poem "The White Man's Burden",[25] a poem which has been interpreted as rationalizing the European colonization of non-white people, while the phrase has also been interpreted as referring to alcoholism, from which Jack suffers.

[26] Cocks places Kubrick's vision of a haunted hotel in line with a long literary tradition of hotels in which sinister events occur, from Stephen Crane's short story The Blue Hotel (which Kubrick admired) to the German Berghof hotel in Thomas Mann's novel The Magic Mountain,[27] about a snowbound sanatorium high in the mountains in which the hero witnesses a series of events which are a microcosm of the decline of Western culture. In keeping with this tradition, Kubrick's film focuses on domesticity and the Torrances' attempt to use this imposing building as a home which Jack Torrance describes as "homey".
.The hotel is described by the manager as a place that was inhabited by the wealthy jet set, "all the best people". Nonetheless, it is also a place of evil as Danny intuits with his "shining" ability when he asks Halloran the cook "Is there something bad here?"^ I've always thought that the point of The Shining was the the malevolent force that permeates the hotel is really after Danny, who is a powerful psychic.

.Cocks claims that Kubrick has elaborately coded many of his historical concerns into the film with manipulations of numbers and colors and his choice of musical numbers, many of which are post-war compositions influenced by the horrors of World War II. Of particular note is Kubrick's use of Penderecki's The Dream of Jacob[28] to accompany Jack Torrance's dream of killing his family and Danny's vision of past carnage in the hotel, a piece of music originally associated with the horrors of the Holocaust.^ That's part of what I think is the confusion of the film-- if it's really a dream story, it doesn't become that till a good hour into it.

Ambiguities in the film

Ghosts and mirrors

Many have speculated on whether there really were ghosts in the film and Kubrick's smart use of mirrors. .It has been noted that every time Jack sees a ghost there is a mirror present, although this is not true of Danny's visions of the Grady sisters nor of Wendy's visions towards the end of the film.^ I realized there'd been a real turning point, especially toward the end of Stanley's life, where we were getting feedback from a lot of critics that suddenly said: 'I've just seen Barry Lyndon again and I did not realize at the time what a wonderful film it was.'

One analyst wrote,
.Kubrick was not religious and didn’t believe in any traditional God or the supernatural; he was, however, vastly imaginative about the possibilities inherent in our universe and within the human mind.^ Remember when Spielberg took shots at him in the press because he was positive Kubrick didn't think what Raphael said he thought about Schindler's List?
  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

Like his exploration of intelligence and capital-I Intelligence in 2001, Kubrick’s exploration of the supernatural is deliberately ambiguous, aspiring to satisfy those who believe in ghosts and those who do not. [32]
Film analyst Rob Ager wrote about the use of mirrors saying,
After passing the four mirrors outside the Gold Room, Jack sits at the bar and again is unable to escape his reflection due to mirrors behind the bar. So he covers his eyes and offers his soul for a drink. When he opens his eyes again the mirrors are cluttered with bottles of alcohol and his reflection has been replaced by Lloyd, the barman. The weird conversation that follows is basically a visual metaphor of Jack speaking to himself. They’re both wearing maroon coloured jackets and have a similar cheeky smirk. Once Jack gets into the swing of his dialogue the camera stays on him and we see nothing of the barman.[33]

The Two Gradys

At the beginning of the film, Stuart Ullman tells Jack of a previous caretaker, Charles Grady, who got cabin fever, axe-murdered his family and then killed himself. .Later, Jack meets a butler named Grady and Jack tells him that he knows about murders, claiming to recognize him from pictures.^ Yow, that tells you all you need to know about sex as a form of class dominance, doesn't it?

However, the butler's name is Delbert Grady, not Charles Grady.
Gordon Dahlquist of The Kubrick FAQ argues that the name change carries great significance;
.The duality of Delbert/Charles Grady deliberately mirrors Jack Torrance being both the husband of Wendy/father of Danny and the mysterious man in the July 4th photo.^ Okay, but how about a definitive explanation for Jack being in the old photo at the end?

In the same way Charles had a chance - once more, perhaps - to not take on Delbert's legacy, so Jack may have had a chance to escape his role as 'caretaker' to the interests of the powerful. It's the tragic course of this story that he chooses not to. [34]
.Dahlquist's argument is that Delbert Grady was the butler in the 1920s (as he says himself, he has "always" been at the Overlook) and Charles Grady was the caretaker in the 1970s (a man presented with a "perilous situation," just as Jack would be years later), and rather than being two completely different people (or indeed the same person with two names), they are two 'manifestations' of a similar entity; the part permanently at the hotel (Delbert) and the part which is given the choice of whether to join the legacy of the hotel's murderous past (Charles), just as the man in the photo is not the same man who Stuart Ullman hires to be the hotel's caretaker, but nor is he someone entirely different.^ Another example: the "Delbert Grady" Jack meets clearly does not match the description he was given earlier in the movie-- he seems to belong to the 20s (I forget when Grady is supposed to have lived but it wasn't that long ago in the story), he's not a caretaker, etc.

The film's assistant editor Gordon Stainforth has commented on this issue, attempting to steer a course between the continuity error explanation on one side and the hidden meaning explanation on the other;
I don't think we'll ever quite unravel this. Was his full name Charles Delbert Grady? Perhaps Charles was a sort of nickname? Perhaps Ullman got the name wrong? But I also think that Stanley did NOT want the whole story to fit together too neatly, so [it is] absolutely correct, I think, to say that 'the sum of what we learn refuses to add up neatly'[35]

The Photograph

At the end of the film, the camera zooms slowly towards an at first distant wall in the Overlook and an obscure photograph, which is revealed at the end as one including Jack Torrance taken in 1921 at the Overlook hotel. It is probably the single most frequently asked question about the film. In an interview with Michel Ciment, Kubrick overtly declared that Jack was a reincarnation of an earlier official at the hotel.[36] However, this has not stopped interpreters from developing alternative readings.
Film critic Jonathan Romney wrote,
The closing inscription appears to explain what has happened to Jack. .Until watching the film again recently I'd always assumed that, after his ordeal in the haunted palace, Jack had been absorbed into the hotel, another sacrificial victim earning his place at the Overlook's eternal dance of the damned.^ Jack is doomed from the moment he walks into the hotel.

At the Overlook, it's always 4 July 1921 - although God knows exactly what happened that night. In fact, Jack Nicholson's likeness literally has been absorbed into the picture: collaged into a 20s archive shot and matched to the photographic grain of the original.
After his absorption theory, he quickly pointed out,
.Or you can look at it another way.^ This is yet another example of why you shouldn't have expectations for a movie other than to be entertained in some way.
  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

Perhaps Jack hasn't been absorbed - perhaps he has really been in the Overlook all along. As the ghostly butler Grady (Philip Stone) tells him during their chilling confrontation in the men's toilet, "You're the caretaker, sir. .You've always been the caretaker.^ You've always been the caretaker.
  • The Shining Synopsis 19 September 2009 18:11 UTC www.drummerman.net [Source type: Original source]

" Perhaps in some earlier incarnation Jack really was around in 1921, and it's his present-day self that is the shadow, the phantom photographic copy. But if his picture has been there all along, why has no one noticed it? After all, it's right at the centre of the central picture on the wall, and the Torrances have had a painfully drawn-out winter of mind-numbing leisure in which to inspect every comer of the place. Is it just that, like Poe's purloined letter, the thing in plain sight is the last thing you see? When you do see it, the effect is so unsettling because you realise the unthinkable was there under your nose - overlooked - the whole time.[37]

Disorientation

The frequent use of long steadicam shots roaming throughout both the Overlook hotel and its garden maze has a disorienting effect on the viewer. Rob Ager theorizes that spacial anomalies in set design were employed by Kubrick to this effect.[38] .Specific examples of such anomalies include the window in Mr Ullman's office - an impossibility as there is a hallway that wraps around the rear of the wall, the inclusion of windows in the Torrance apartment bedrooms - later revealed to be an impossibility as the apartment is not on a corner of the building as the window implies, and the large size of room 237 - the close proximity of apartment doors in the surrounding hallways implies the apartment would have to be much smaller.^ It would be a much better film and book if Torrance struggled with his and the hotel's demons.

Character arc of Jack Torrance

The novel presents us with a Jack who is initially well-intentioned but is struggling with alcohol and has issues with resentment of authority. .In spite of good intentions, he becomes gradually overwhelmed by the evil forces in the hotel, though near the end of the book he has a moment of recovered benevolence, helping Wendy and Danny escape during a moment of recovered sanity.^ I've always thought that the point of The Shining was the the malevolent force that permeates the hotel is really after Danny, who is a powerful psychic.

[42] The film’s Jack is established as a bit sinister (and irritated with his family) much earlier in the story and his final redemption never occurs. Furthermore, Jack actually kills Dick Hallorann in the film, but kills no one in the novel. .King attempted to talk Stanley Kubrick out of casting Jack Nicholson even before filming began, on the grounds that the whole theme of an everyman's slow descent into madness would be undercut by casting Nicholson, who had starred in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest a few years before.^ Who cares about serving one of Stephen King's stories?

He suggested Jon Voight among others for the role.[43][44][45] Stephen King has openly stated on the DVD commentary of the 1997 mini-series of The Shining that the character of Jack Torrance was partially autobiographical, as he was struggling with both alcoholism and unprovoked rage toward his family at the time of writing.[46]
Writing in Hollywood's Stephen King, Tony Magistrale writes
.Kubrick's version of Torrance is much closer to the tyrannical Hal (from Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Alex (from Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange) than he is to King's more conflicted, more sympathetically human characterization.^ CLOCKWORK ORANGE that kubrick appararently had buned and buried.

Jack's twin demons in the novel are alcoholism and authority-issues, but his demons in the film seem to be alcohol and severe writer's block, though some authority-issues on his part are implied indirectly.[48] .The book gives more overt illustrations of Jack's issues with authority that are absent from the film, notably his past conflicts with his own authoritarian father.^ According to the book he wrote about the film, Raphael was pretty much the sole screenwriter with Kubrick simply giving instructions and offering opinions on pages as he read them.

[50] In both the novel and film, the ghostly bartender's supplying Jack with a drink is pivotal to Jack's deterioration, but the book establishes Jack's alcoholism much earlier than the film does.
Kubrick's co-screenwriter Diane Johnson believes that in King's novel, Jack's discovery of the scrapbook of clippings in the boiler room of the hotel which gives him new ideas for a novel catalyzes his becoming possessed by the ghosts of the hotel. He is no longer a blocked writer, but now filled with energy. In her contribution to the screenplay, she wrote an adaptation of this scene, which to her regret Kubrick later excised, as she felt this left the father's change less motivated.[51]

Resulting characterization of Wendy Torrance and Stuart Ullmann

The downplaying of the theme of Jack's issues with authority allows the film to alter the characters of Ullmann and Wendy. In the novel, Jack's authority issues are triggered by the fact that his interviewer, Ullmann, is highly authoritarian, a kind of snobbish military martinet. The film's Ullmann is far more humane and concerned about Jack's well-being, as well as smooth and self-assured. .Writing in Stanley Kubrick and the Art of Adaptation, author Greg Jenkins writes "A toadish figure in the book, Ullman has been utterly reinvented for the film; he now radiates charm, grace and gentility."^ Stanley Kubrick had the scene removed a week after the film was released."

  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[52] Only in the novel does Ullmann state that he disapproves of hiring Jack but higher authorities have asked that Jack be hired.[53] Especially notable is the film's omission of Ullmann mentioning that both the previous caretaker, Grady, who killed his family and Jack are alcoholics. In the book, Ullmann discusses Grady's history in an almost threatening way, whereas he does so in the film in a concerned way.[54] In particular, in the film we see no sign at all that Ullmann even knows about Jack's drinking problem. In short, in the novel, Ullmann's despotic nature is one of the first steps in Jack's deterioration, whereas in the film, Ullmann serves largely in the role of expositor.
Wendy's concern about Danny also triggers Jack's authority issues in the novel,[55] while in the film he mainly finds her concerns irritating and hysterical.[56] Wendy Torrance in the film is relatively meek, submissive, passive and mousy. This is shown by the way she defends Jack even in his absence to the doctor examining Danny. In the book, she is a more self-reliant and independent personality who is tied to Jack in part by her poor relationship with her parents.[57] She never displays the hysteria or collapse in the novel that she does in the film. Writing in Hollywood's Stephen King, author Tony Magistrale writes about the mini-series remake:
De Mornay restores much of the steely resilience found in the protagonist of King's novel and this is particularly noteworthy when compared to Shelley Duvall's exaggerated portrayal of Wendy as Olive Oyl revisited: A simpering fatality of forces beyond her capacity to understand, much less surmount.[58]
Co-screenwriter Diane Johnson says that in her contributions to the script, Wendy had a lot more dialogue, and that Kubrick cut many of her lines, possibly due to his dissatisfaction with actress Shelley Duvall's delivery. Johnson believes the earlier draft of the script had Wendy as a more rounded character.[59]

Danny Torrance

Danny Torrance is considerably more forthcoming about his supernatural abilities in the novel, discussing them with strangers such as his doctor.[60] In the film, he is quite secretive about it even with Dick Halloran who shares his ability. (The same is true of Dick Halloran who in his journey back to the Overlook talks with others with the shining ability while in the film he lies about his reason for returning to the Overlook.)
Danny in the novel is generally portrayed as unusually intelligent across the board.[61] In the film, he is more ordinary though with a preternatural gift.
.In the novel, Danny is much more bonded to his father than in the film, which is in keeping with the novel's conclusion in which Danny virtually saves the soul of his father.^ It is much easier to maintain a specific mood for a short period of time than through a long form novel.

Although Danny has supernatural powers in both versions, the book makes it clear that his apparent imaginary friend "Tony" really is a projection of hidden parts of his own psyche, though heavily amplified by Danny's psychic “shining” abilities. At the end it is revealed that Danny Torrance's middle name is "Anthony".[62] In the film, the status of Tony is unknown; he could be a separate entity. .Only in the film does Danny describe "Tony" as "the little boy who lives in my mouth."^ Thanks, slothroplt, but my actual question was: Who was Leon Vitali's "Oddly Familiar Man" in Little Children?

Family dynamics

Kubrick tones down the early family tension and reveals family disharmony much more gradually than does King.
In the film, Danny has a stronger emotional bond with Wendy than with Jack, which fuels Jack's rather paranoid notion that the two are conspiring against him.

Motivation of ghosts

.In the novel, the motivation of the ghosts to possess Jack Torrance is to get him to kill Danny; if Danny becomes a ghost, they will have access to his "shining" ability, thus making the ghosts far more powerful and able to extend their powers beyond the confines of the hotel.^ My major problem is how easily Jack Torrance (Nicholson's character) is taken over by the hotel.

.However, Grady, one of the ghosts in the hotel, mentions to Jack that Danny has "a very great talent", suggesting that the hotel's ghosts have an interest in Danny's "shining" ability.^ I've always thought that the point of The Shining was the the malevolent force that permeates the hotel is really after Danny, who is a powerful psychic.

Plot differences

Because of the limitations of special effects at the time, the living topiary animals of the book were omitted and a hedge maze was added.[68][69] The hedge maze plays a crucial role in the film's plot, acting as a final trap for Jack Torrance as well as a refuge for Danny.
As noted earlier, Jack kills Hallorann in the film but not the novel. In the novel Jack recovers his sanity and goodwill through the intervention of Danny which does not occur in the film. In the novel, the Overlook Hotel is completely destroyed by a fire caused by an exploding boiler, while the movie ends with the hotel still standing. More broadly, the defective boiler is a major subplot element of the novel which is entirely missing from the film. .In the novel, Jack's final good act is to enable Wendy and Danny to escape the hotel before it explodes, killing him.^ When Jack is chasing Wendy around the hotel she runs downstairs and discover all these cobwebby skeletons in a lounge or a dining room or something.

  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

In the film, the hotel is set as being built on an Indian burial ground, while in the novel, the reason for the hotel's personality is less well-explained. In the novel, Jack does a great deal of investigation of the hotel's past through a scrapbook, a subplot almost omitted from the film aside from two touches. Firstly, there is the brief appearance of the scrapbook next to the typewriter in the scene when Jack tells Wendy never to bother him while he's working. Secondly, Jack tells the ghost of Grady that he knows his face because he saw it in an old newspaper article describing the latter's horrific acts.
More trivial differences include Jack's choice of weapon (a roque mallet in the book, an axe in the movie), the number of the advisably avoided room (217 in the book and 237 in the movie), and the nature of Danny's injury before the action of the story (a broken arm in the book and a dislocated shoulder in the movie).
Some of the film's most famous iconic scenes, such as the ghost girls in the hallway[70] and the blood in the elevator shaft,[71] are unique to the film. The most notable of these would be the "novel" that Wendy discovers in Jack’s typewriter.[72] Similarly, many of the film's most memorable lines of dialogue ("Words of wisdom" and "Here's Johnny!") are unique to the film.

Defense of how the book was adapted

Although Stephen King fans were critical of the book's adaptation on the grounds that Kubrick altered and reduced the novel's themes, a defense of Kubrick's approach was published by Steve Biodrowski, a former editor of the print magazine Cinefantastique.[73] .His review of the film is one of the few to go into detailed comparison with the book.^ On his way out, Ullman gives Danny a ball -- the same one that mysteriously rolled into a hallway earlier in the film, before Danny was attacked in room 237.
  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

Biodrowski states,
.Widely reviled by Stephen King fans for abandoning much of the book (King himself said his feelings balanced out to zero), Stanley Kubrick’s film version, upon re-examination, reveals that he took the same course he had often used in the past when adapting novels to the screen (such as Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita): he stripped away the back story and exposition, distilling the results down to the basic narrative line, with the characters thus rendered in a more archetypal form.^ Stanley Kubrick "always admitted he took too long to make Barry Lyndon ," former Kubrick assistant Leon Vitali tells The Reeler's Jamie Stuart .
  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

  • °Barry Lyndon° reconsidered :: Hollywood Elsewhere 17 September 2009 22:47 UTC hollywood-elsewhere.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

The result ...[is] a brilliant, ambitious attempt to shoot a horror film without the Gothic trappings of shadows and cobwebs so often associated with the genre.

Music and soundtrack

The film features a brief electronic score by Wendy Carlos and Rachel Elkind, including one major theme in addition to a main title based on Hector Berlioz' interpretation of the "Dies Irae", used in his "Symphonie Fantastique", as well as pieces of modernist music. The soundtrack LP was taken off the market due to licensing issues and has never appeared as a legitimate compact disc release. For the film itself, pieces were overdubbed on top of one another.[74]
Carlos and Elkind had composed a great deal of music for the film, with the expectation that it would be used. However, Kubrick decided to go with classical music from other sources, as he has done on previous occasions. Some of Carlos' unused music appears on her album Rediscovering Lost Scores, Vol. 2.
The stylistically modernist art-music chosen by Kubrick is similar to the repertoire he first explored in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Although the repertoire was selected by Kubrick, the process of matching passages of music to motion picture was left almost entirely at the discretion of music editor Gordon Stainforth, whose work on this film is notable for the attention to fine details and remarkably precise synchronization without excessive splicing.[75]
The non-original music on the soundtrack is as follows:
  1. Lontano by György Ligeti, Ernest Bour conducting Sinfonie Orchester des Südwestfunks (Wergo Records)
  2. Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta by Béla Bartók, Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (Deutsche Grammophon)
  3. Utrenja — excerpts from the Ewangelia and Kanon Paschy movements by Krzysztof Penderecki Andrzej Markowski conducting Symphony Orchestra of the National Philharmonic, Warsaw (Polskie Nagrania Records)
  4. The Awakening of Jacob (Als Jakob Erwacht) and De Natura Sonoris No. 1 and 2, by Krzysztof Penderecki, the Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer (EMI)
  5. Home by Henry Hall and the Gleneagles Hotel Band (Columbia Records)
  6. It's All Forgotten Now performed by Al Bowlly
  7. Masquerade by Jack Hylton and His Orchestra (not on the soundtrack album)
  8. Kanon (for string orchestra) by Krzysztof Penderecki
  9. Polymorphia (for string orchestra) by Krzysztof Penderecki, performed by Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki
  10. Midnight, the Stars and You by Jimmy Campbell, Reginald Connelly and Harry Woods, performed by Ray Noble and His Orchestra, with Al Bowlly

In popular culture

The Shining has had an enormous influence on popular culture mostly in the form of having its most memorable scenes and iconic imagery imitated and parodied multiple times in many television shows, films and music videos. A full list of references would be very long.
Frequently imitated individual scenes are the two girls in the hallway,[76] the usage of the word "Redrum" ("murder" spelled backwards),[77] the blood spilling out of the opening elevator doors[78] and Jack Torrance's sticking his head through the axe-hewn hole in the bathroom door, leeringly saying, "Here's Johnny."[79] One of the most well-known parodies in television is the Simpsons episode "Treehouse of Horror V", which contains the story "The Shinning", a parody of The Shining; in addition Sherri and Terri (the twins in Bart's 4th grade class) have similarities with the Grady twins.[80] The web animation series 30-Second Bunnies Theatre did a spoof re-enactment of the entire film.

Legacy

Despite not winning any major awards, over the years The Shining has become widely regarded as one of the greatest films of the horror genre and a staple of pop culture and like many Kubrick films has been described as "seminal."[84][85] In 2001, the film was ranked 29th on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Thrills list and Jack Torrance was named the 25th greatest villain on the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains list in 2003. In 2005, the quote "Here's Johnny!" was ranked 68 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes list. It was named the all-time scariest film by Channel 4,[86] Total Film labeled it the 5th greatest horror film,[87] and Bravo TV named one of the film's scenes 6th on their list of the 100 Scariest Movie Moments. In addition, film critics Kim Newman[88] and Jonathan Romney[89] both placed it in their top ten lists for the 2002 Sight and Sound poll. .Director Martin Scorsese placed The Shining on his list of the 11 scariest horror films of all time.^ It was widely attacked when first released for not being scary enough, and it's been funny to see it belatedly placed on just about every list of the best horror films ever made.
