Ephemera related to Stanley Kubrick's Masterpiece of Modern Horror, 'The Shining'
Dan Lloyd, who played young Danny Torrance, was recently interviewed by The Sun regarding his experience working on The Shining.
He discusses fond memories of filming in 1978, and that he didn’t know he was in a scary film. The film was shot out of order, and he was shielded from any frightening or bloody imagery. To the five-year-old, it was all fun and games and an opportunity to ride a tricycle around indoors.
Dan was shown a severely cut down version of the film when he was young, and didn’t see the complete film until he was sixteen, when some friends rented it from a video store.
Lloyd, who is now forty and teaching Biology in rural Kentucky, was asked about what his own three children think of the film. He said they mostly just make fun of his haircut.
