Lisa and Louise Burns were twelve years old when they played the Grady Twins in The Shining. It was the only film appearance for the sisters.
In a June, 2002 issue of JANE magazine, the twins, then 35, recalled running around in the Hedge Maze set, getting lost and forcing crew members to remove panels to let them out. They discussed still owning a pair of the dresses they wore in the film, and Louise recalled, “I got to keep a jar of fake blood. I stored it in the fridge until it congealed.”
Aerial photo of EMI Elstree Studios from the early 1970’s, a few years before The Shining filmed there. Stanley Kubrick’s production took over most of the stages on the lot for nearly a year between 1978 and 1979.
The photo has been labeled with the locations of many of the film’s iconic sets. The set of city street backlot facades pictured here was bulldozed to clear room for the Overlook Hotel facade. While most sets were built on sound stages, the Hotel Kitchen set was built in an adjacent building that was normally an Art Department workshop.

Jack’s burgundy corduroy jacket from The Shining. Jack Nicholson wears this jacket for a full two-thirds of the film.
Nicholson personally owned the jacket, and reportedly insisted upon wearing it in the movie. As such, Kubrick ordered eleven duplicates from its designer, Margaret Howell.
Some of the jackets have ended up in private collections. One is currently on display at an exhibit in Disney World, and another is owned by longtime Kubrick personal assistant Emilio D’Allesandro.
The jacket pictured here was sold at a Christie’s auction in 2002, and then again at a Guernsey’s auction in 2008, for a reported $17,000.
