Film Editor Ray Lovejoy, left, sits next to Stanley Kubrick’s longtime personal assistant Emilio D’Alessandro on the The Shining’s Colorado Lounge set.
Lovejoy, who had previously edited for Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey, was unable to complete his editing duties on The Shining due to a hand injury. Second Assistant Editor Gordon Stainforth stepped in and finished editing the film with Kubrick.
On the table in front of them sits the Overlook Hotel scrapbook, a prop which, although it figures heavily in the novel, does not appear much in the film. A number of scenes were shot with the scrapbook, including Jack finding it in the basement and subsequently showing it to Wendy, but all of these scenes were deleted from the finished film.
The original scrapbook can be seen in the Stanley Kubrick Archive in London.
