2. Supposedly the idea for the story...

came during a stay at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO. I visited there back in the 1980's but just looked around the lobby and front area...kind of spooky...The hotel was owned by the designer of the Stanly Steamer car...they had one in the lobby...

4. Kubrick told Shelly Duvall that everyone on the set hated her

hoping to instill a sense of loneliness and desperation, which her character would certainly be feeling. Probably went a little too far with it, as Duvallís performance is often ranked in the top-ten worst acting lists.

5. And after the abuse he heaped on her,

I have read that the little boy who played Danny didn't even know he was in a horror movie until years later because Kubrick took great pain to not scare him. Not sure how true that is, but that's what I read.

6. Probably true, according to the DVD commentary

ďHe was led to believe that he was just acting in a drama film about a family who lives in a hotel.ď

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Lloyd

Not really a lie, because it is a drama about a family who lives in a hotel, albeit a strange one.

7. Great photos, look at the attire & faces. The guy in the front,

ringer for Jack Nicolson, eerie. What an Independence Party.
