Ephemera related to Stanley Kubrick's Masterpiece of Modern Horror, 'The Shining'
Frame from an unused take from The Shining. This alternate take of Jack Nicholson’s iconic “Here’s Johnny!” moment was used in an American television commercial for The Shining upon its initial release.
A British version of the television spot also exists, and is nearly identical to the U.S. version with the exception of two shots.
This image of actor Jack Nicholson in the Hedge Maze appears to be a still from The Shining, but it’s not; it cannot be matched to any frame in the finished film. It’s either from an unused take, or is a still taken on the set. Its source remains unknown.
In Vivian Kubrick’s documentary on the making of The Shining, several crew members can be seen wearing a black sweater with “The Shining" in red letters, and a white hawk hovering above the text. The hawk is a nod to Stanley Kubrick’s production company, "Hawk Films Ltd."
These custom sweaters were given as gifts by actor Jack Nicholson to everyone on the crew during the production.
