I felt like that about her for a long time too. Watch the short documentary on making The Shining. It's shot and made by Kubrick's wife.
She, Nicholson, and a number of other people have publicly commented on what Shelley achieved with that performance- in part because Stanley was so aggressively tough, demanding, cold, and hard on her she really was on the verge of a nervous breakdown during the year of shooting. Mind you, he wasn't acting like this with anyone else- he was purposely isolating her otherwise only drawing attention to her to belittle or be critical of her.

He wanted to truly capture her in a panicked state. Nicholson said what she went through for filming that movie was by far the toughest role he's ever seen an actor go through to portray and is amazed at her performance. She at times was having such a fit of stress and nervous panic that she couldn't keep her hands from shaking uncontrollably, and started pulling out portions of hair. It's a known coping mechanism for exerting control for some when highly stressed, neurologically closely associated with OCD.

It's known as Trichotillomania, and sufferers in advanced cases will pull out patches larger than a goofball in size on their scalp, or even completely pull out their eyebrow hair of 1 or both eyebrows, or even all their eyelashes.

What she went thru is nuts, and I look at her in that role very differently now, because before since the 1st time I saw the movie, I never liked her in it. Now, I'm kinda in awe of this woman about to actually have a psychotic episode maybe at any second now captured on film.

Also - fun little excerpt of Kubrick's flim version of giving King the middle finger.


The Crushed Red VW


A lot of whatís written about Stanley Kubrickís movies is speculation. In this blog Iíve tried to stay away from any unfounded hypotheses (like the possible psychological motivations of characters) because I want what Iíve written to be as accurate and as provable (using pictures and dialogue from the movie and the novel) as possible.

What Iím going to show you here, though, is pure speculation on my part; but Iím sure Iíve nailed it. Recently ZB posted a comment and asked a question about this shot as Dick Hallorann drives up to The Overlook.



He said ďThe red VW bug is certainly not just some random vehicleĒ which got me thinking because I actually feel that very little in this movie is random. I noticed the red VW bug early on in this project long before reading the novel. Still being in ďfinding numbers modeĒ, I knew of two others and went searching for the last VW certain there would be a total of 4 different colors (yellow, white, red and ????). This was a simple task but I could never find the last one, even in Dannyís toys. This lost VW was one of the only things I looked for but couldnít find in the movie so I forgot about it before proceeding to read the novel. Realizing that the colors of the two main vehicles in the novel being reversed in the movie was a much bigger deal, I never thought about the crushed red VW bug again until I saw ZBís comment. The only important red VW in this whole story is in the novel and itís the vehicle that brings the Torrances to The Overlook. I now feel, after reading the novel, that Stanley Kubrick used this scene to convey a distinct message to someone special.

Thereís only one person on the face of this earth whose blood would boil upon seeing that crushed red VW bug up on the screen। Can you just imagine being Stephen King watching this movie in a theater with no graceful way to escape? Watching with your friends who are commenting on everything from your prized story being reversed, inverted and turned upside down in the most brilliant of fashions, than coming upon this scene and seeing a smashed red VW bug on the way to The Overlook? The same VW that brought the Torrances there in your novel and now whose color some dreadful omnipresent director has changed to an awful yellow. I know very little about Stanley Kubrickís personality but I feel, if Iím right, this is a bit on the nasty side, "Shined" from the mind of one genius to another. The red VW could represent Stephen Kingís original story, and itís been crushed by the towering brilliance of Stanley Kubrickís movie. This may have been Stephen Kingís cameo in this movie. Could he possibly be the driver? Iím sure this is why after seeing it Stephen King described Kubrickís film as ďa big beautiful Cadillac, with no engine.Ē My, my, what a big truck and what big cajones

I've yet to get nothing but positive feedback from anyone I've shared the link with that took a little time to actually read over some analysis and breakdown of the genius of Kubrick.
Yes, except I always read before going to sleep and reading that was so interesting I ending up staying awake way to long. Well worth the loss of sleep though.
