Hallorann estimates that it will take him five hours to drive up from the airport to collect the car.

Everytime I see it on TV it has those scenes as well.... Why don't they finally release a decent boxed set of Kubrick? Just release the damn thing on dvd unedited.Crap!! The removal of all the sequences of the Torrances watching television has now curtailed what would seem to be a significant motif in the film, to do with popular culture and communication. What is your problem? The best thing is, at the time, you don't know its happening.
The film is often compared to Fail Safe, which was also released in 1964. Its Kubrick? He then talks of the hotel's "illustrious past": as a stopping place for the jet set, for four presidents, lots of movie stars and "all the best people". She eventually acknowledged, “I might have hated him at the time, but I now see him as a really important filmmaker who gave me that role of my life and made me the sort of actress I never dared think I’d become.”. I'd love to see what kind of work the man did around my age. Wendy reveals that she thought the place was "kinda scarey" when they first arrived. Tom Cruise developed an ulcer on the set of Eyes Wide Shut, but he did not talk about it publicly because he was worried about Kubrick’s reputation.

This disheartens me greatly...I need a good boxed set. UlIman then leaves with Jack, and Hallorann is left to show Wendy the kitchen. She then hears Danny calling out "red rum" over and over, but when she tries to talk to him, she is only 'answered' by Tony, who tells her that Danny can't hear her. Maybe that had something to do with it, that whole "family values" backlash. [On the question of names, one might note that the previous caretaker, Grady, is first referred to as Charles, but in his later scene with Jack, refers to himself as Delbert.] The Shining is often cited as one of the first films to make good use of the Steadicam. A coda to Wendy and Danny's escape (which followed the shot of Jack frozen in the maze). An extensive Kubrick exhibition is touring the world.

The manager, Ullman, explains that the Overlook is closed every winter from the end of October to the following May, because of the prohibitive cost of keeping the road to the Sidewinder pass open. He indicates "our famous hedge maze" and warns them not to go in unless they have an hour to spare to find their way out. He then attached the lenses to his own cameras so that he could get the shots with the lighting he wanted. Director Stanley Kubrick died in 1999, but he still remains an integral part of our culture today.
Also, does anyone know if his documentaries are available anywhere? Instead of a dark dreary setting, which is typical of most horror films, the Overlook is generally well-lit, garishly so, it tends to reflect the mad electricity, the exploding synapses, of Jack Torrance’s increasingly insane mind.

This is followed by the sequence as it now stands in the film of Hallorann driving through the blizzard in the snowcat, with the voice-over of radio announcers chatting about the deteriorating conditions. Kubrick showed an interest in experimenting with structure long before 2001; in his 1956 film The Killing, chronology does not limit the plot.
Also, I'm sure that, with the new 16:9 standard, Kubrick would want to present his films in their theatrical aspect ratios.
Goodykoontz, B. (16) The beginning of the scene in which Wendy finds Jack's type-written pages covered with "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" has been cut. Now Stanley said, ‘Wait a minute, Lucien, what are you doing, Lucien?’ ‘Well, I took your dolly shot and instead of the 25mm, I’m just going for the 50mm, but I’m at a distance where you would get the same image size...it won’t make any difference.’ Well, it’s all the difference in the world. As soon as you back up, you can hold the same image size, but the entire perspective changes...Stanley looked up at Lucien Ballard and said, ‘Lucien, either you move that camera and put it where it has to be to use a 25mm or get off this set and never come back!’”.

Production designer Ken Adam remembers when a serviceman visited the set one day and was taken aback by how accurate the film was. "Day of the Fight" and "The Seafarers" don't seem to be up as of yet. And to add scenes that would explain things to the viewer would be to destroy Kubrick's personal aesthetic, in my opinion. As the film now stands, Jack's drinking problem has to be assumed, and the incident with Danny is not mentioned until halfway through. Why are there two versions of The Shining? It would be interesting to see them, of course, but I don't think the movies suffer from being shown in their final release form (except maybe the U.S. censored release of "Eyes Wide Shut.").

I personally do not wish to see changes to "The Shining," "2001," "Full Metal Jacket," "A Clockwork Orange" or any of Kubrick's films for that matter.
