Ephemera related to Stanley Kubrick's Masterpiece of Modern Horror, 'The Shining'

'I deleted a brief epilogue scene between Shelley Duvall and Barry Nelson which took place in a hospital after the main action of the film had been concluded. After several screenings in London the day before the film opened in New York and Los Angeles, when I was able to see for the first time the fantastic pitch of excitement which the audience reached during the climax of the film, I decided the scene was unnecessary. It had not been possible to change all of the New York and Los Angeles prints before opening.'

In a telephone call press statement from June of 1980, Stanley Kubrick discusses his reasoning behind removing the hospital epilogue from The Shining only days after its limited U.S. release.
