All Work And No Play: Kubrick, Nicholson And Duvall On The Set Of THE SHINING

Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining reeks of atmosphere. It’s not a literal adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, but it’s a film filled with nuance and detail. Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance might be nuts from the get-go but Nicholson delivers a tour-de-force performance. Kubrick apparently put poor Shelley Duvall through the wringer as Wendy, Jack’s on-the-edge wife.

The above photograph shows all three on set filming The Shining‘s infamous ‘all work and no play’ reveal.
