The Shining

Corrected entry: When Jack and his family arrive at the Overlook, the hotel manager Mr. Ullman asks Jack, "has your luggage been brought in?" and the camera shot shows a large pile of suitcases and belongings, which would definitely not have fitted in their VW Beetle.

Correction: I believe the luggage was from the final departing guests, not the Torrances.

Corrected entry: When the blood spills from the elevator the editors try to make it look like the whole room is filled with blood by just putting a red screen over the camera,but you can see that the blood is only filled half way in the room.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: They put a red filter on to give the illusion that the blood has splashed over the "eyes of the viewer". It's merely a stylistic choice and not necessarily meant to suggest the room was completely filled.

Floyd1977

Corrected entry: In the scene where the barman drops the drinks on Jack Nicholson, the cups are fixed to the tray. This is seen when the barman takes the tray up from the floor, and in the next scene, when he puts it on the table at the bathroom.

Correction: I have watched this scene closely several times. The man holds the tray perfectly flat and there is no indication whatsoever that the glasses are glued to the tray.

Corrected entry: In the baseball bat scene Wendy accidentally calls Jack Jake. Right after she says, "please, stay away, stop it Jake, get away from me".

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: She never calls him by the wrong name or uses his name at all in that sequence. She says "please" in a muffed, crying scared voice. Not "Jake."

Bishop73

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jack is talking through the door of the food closet he has been locked into, his right hand is leaning on a long thin door handle on his side of the door. However, a later shot of the door shows the same handle to be on the right hand side of the door, in which case in the earlier shot he would have been leaning on it with his left hand.

Correction: In every scene, the knob is on the left.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy is confronting Jack about the bruises on Danny's neck, and she carries Danny away, take a look at "Danny" in her arms. She picks up a real little boy, but then after a cut away, in the next shot she is very obviously carrying a dummy (you can see his stiff body and cloth hand).

Correction: She is carrying a real boy the whole time - you can see Danny's thumb move while she is walking away and then once she is completely walking away, Danny's arm starts to raise.

Corrected entry: Jack is walking through the apartment towards the bathroom door with the ax. In the scene before he enters the apartment, "redrum" is written on the bathroom door. In the shot where we see him getting ready to break down the bathroom door, "redrum" is missing from the door.

Correction: The writing on the door "redrum" does not disappear. When Jack is getting ready to break the door down, the writing is out of camera range, which is why it can't be seen in this shot.

mightymick

Corrected entry: When Jack is talking to Lloyd the bartender, his Jack Daniels goes from being two thirds full to nearly empty two or three times without him having drunk any.

Correction: It's a hallucination.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: In the scene after Danny goes to room 227, Jack is typing, but you can tell by the group of typewriter keys he hits that he isn't typing "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But later after Wendy leaves the room, he is typing that phrase.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Your sequencing is off - the scene where Jack is typing, and then is interrupted, and then types again, happens *before* Danny goes to room 237 [not 227]. He is seen typing when Wendy interrupts him after Danny has gone to room 237, but he does not go back to typing - he sits at his typewriter staring blankly into space. So the scene you describe does not exist. And even if the scene did exist the way you describe it, it's not a mistake for him to change what he's typing - it could be said that this was the beginning of his madness.

Corrected entry: It was 8:20AM when his plane landed and when Dick Hallorann calls his friend Larry at the garage the clock on the wall reads 9:07. When Larry asks him how long it will take to get there he says about five hours but in the next scene where we see him driving to Durkin's garage, it's obviously the middle of the night.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: So he was wrong about how long it would take him - not uncommon in a snowstorm.

Corrected entry: From the first shot to the last, Stanley Kubrick includes many references to special numbers. 12, 24, 21, 42 and 1, 2, 4 and 5 and it's multiples can be easily spotted close to 200 times. - -1) We see Jack ax the bathroom door 12 times.2) Wendy stops at line 21 on the page in Jack's typewriter. 3) We hear Wendy thumb through 24 pages of Jack's novel.4) Wendy swings the bat 42 times.5) Jack's locked up in storeroom C-1.6) 2 girls, 2 elevators, 2 boilers, and 2 identical sides in Jack's vision of hedge maze.7) Jack holds up 4 fingers in the last picture.8) Jack says "5 months on the wagon" and The Overlook is closed between10/30 and 5/15. - -This is just the tip of an iceberg. Taken as time codes they point to shots in the movie and when the time code hits a :12 or :21 visions are seen (most almost exactly :24 seconds in duration). When the time code hits a :24 or :42 a cast member discovers something (durations end almost exactly with :12, :21, or :24 seconds). Just take a look at the vision in the very last shot of the movie (2:21) "Overlook Hotel July 4th Ball 1921" with a duration of :24 seconds, and you'll see what I mean. However, the timecode will only be accurate for NTSC versions of the film, as PAL versions are slightly sped up due to the differing frame rates. Go to the Forum-Mistakes-Check this out, for more examples.

????

Correction: Unless it can be shown that the completely random and unrelated numbers 12, 24, 21, 42, and multiples of 1, 2, 4 and 5 (which narrows it down to millions of numbers) held some significance for Stanley Kubrick, or for anyone, this is not trivia. One could take those numbers (or any numbers) and find them in any film, if one is insane enough to actually search for and chronicle them.

Corrected entry: As both she and Jack hear the Snow cat engine quite there's no reason whatsoever why Wendy doesn't scream out the bathroom window to Dick Halloran as he parks right outside it, like she yelled to Danny several shots before. This decision definitely benefits the plot despite making no sense.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: ##There indeed are several reasons why she doesn't call out for help when she hears the Snow Cat: a) she is standing near the door, not the window, and is still concerned about fending off Jack at the door; b) once Jack moves away and doesn't become a threat, she could call out, but she's still in shock and not thinking straight; and c) she would probably figure out she might not be heard over the roar of the engine.

Corrected entry: Stanley Kubrick makes use of color to indicate when certain characters are "Shining". Surroundings and possessions which are entirely yellow or red are obvious and have been noted by many but never fully understood. In the novel oranges were what Dick Hallorann smelled when he "Shined" and being that smell can not be adequately brought across to a theater audience Stanley Kubrick made the brilliant decision to use the two pigments a painter mixes together to make the color orange. Most commentators see these shots, as Jack in the yellow VolksWagon or with the red Calumet can behind his head in the storeroom, and still don't know what's going on. Red and yellow equals orange, "Shining", and all you have to do is, as the MM motto goes "open your eyes" and look at the movie to see this.

????

Correction: This cites no source for this information that can be considered authoritative. Without such, it is speculative at best, based purely on the occasional appearance of particular common colours. There is invariably a tendency to wish to read significance into aspects of films and this submitter has clearly taken it further than most; his assertation that most people simply fail to understand Kubrick's subtlety is at best pompous and at worst an indication that they are simply seeing significance in something that has none, a far better explanation as to why "most commentators" fail to pick up on such things.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: It took Jack 60 seconds to break down the first door.. After the 17th ax swings he only has a little bit of the door chopped out and if you look closely his ax is in the center of the door panel. In the next shot they cut to inside the apartment as he finally breaks through, now it's on the left side of the door panel.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: So it takes him longer than you think it should to chop down a solid wooden door. He is drunk, or hungover, perhaps. Not a film mistake.

Corrected entry: Jack runs away from the woman in room 237 and if you look out the front door the hallway is lit up. When he finally runs out of the room the hallway is now dark.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: This may be because Jack is inside a ghostly illusion in room 237 - seeing a lit hallway from inside the haunted room is part of the way that particular ghost manifests itself. When Jack stumbles out, he sees the hallway the way it really is, dark.

Twotall

Corrected entry: In room 237 the chairs and table on the right side of the bedroom are dark. When the old woman follows Jack out of the bathroom he walks through the bedroom again and all of these items are now lit up.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: That may be because the entire room is part of the ghostly illusion - the first time Jack sees the bedroom the way it really is, but after the ghost appears, he sees the room the way it was when she died.

Twotall

Corrected entry: The shot of Dick Hallorann in the jet is not right. If you look at the drink in front of the woman sitting next to him it's motionless. Anyone who has flown in an airplane knows that any liquid in an open glass vibrates.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Nonsense, I've flown in many many airplanes and that isn't always the case.

tw_stuart

Corrected entry: Wendy's reaction to the old bloodied gentleman in the back of the lobby is great but if you look closely there's no reason for it as he doesn't move or make a sound while she's obviously facing the other way.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Look again. He raises his glass in a toast and asks her "Great party, isn't it". So he both moves and speaks.

Twotall

Corrected entry: Wendy is in the apartment talking to herself trying to decide what she should do with Danny and we see the right side of the apartment as she walks around. Lots of stuff has disappeared since Mr. Ullman's tour, most notable is the lamp on top of the bookcase.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: As explained several times already, time has passed between Ullmann's tour and later scenes. It is quite possible for the Torrance's to have moved things around in the days or weeks they have been there. Especially in their own apartment, where they want to be as comfortable as possible.

Twotall

Corrected entry: As Jack talks to Delbert Grady in the bathroom he says, "You chopped your wife and daughter into little bits," yet we have been told that he had two daughters by himself and Mr. Ullman, and we see two in all of Danny's visions.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Character mistake - Jack misremembers and thinks Grady only had one daughter.

Twotall

Corrected entry: As Jack looks into the lobby of The Overlook and hears Dick yelling, "Hello" we get another chance to see the rug underneath the television set. The one there now is different then what was there as Danny and Wendy watched "The summer of 42" earlier in the movie, and the TV is in front of the wrong window.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: There's no reason they can't have rearranged furniture and changed rugs as the movie goes on.

CocoCami

Corrected entry: In the Colorado Lounge a sofa appears facing, and in front of Jack's desk as he throws the tennis ball. During Mr. Ullman's tour it wasn't there.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: As explained several times before, between Mr. Ullman's tour and following scenes from the Overlook several days, if not weeks, have passed. There has been plenty of time for the Torrances to move furniture around to places they prefer. After all, they are going to be stuck inside the hotel for several months, might as well make themselves as comfortable as possible.

Twotall

Corrected entry: In the long shot of Jack typing just before the shot of Wendy trying to phone the forest rangers we see that there's no rug in front of his desk. It was there during Mr. Ulman's tour.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Several weeks pass between those two scenes. Plenty of time for the Torrances to move the rug.

Twotall

Corrected entry: People who "Shine" are able to see the past, present, and future through visions, yet Dick Hallorann is not able to see the trouble waiting for him at The Overlook.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: They don't see the entire future. It's not a given that they'd see everything that will happen to them.

CocoCami

Corrected entry: As Jack screams from his nightmare, Wendy runs through the kitchen and we see the large fireplace before she enters The Colorado Lounge. We saw this spot before as Mr. Ullman took them on the tour of the hotel in the beginning of the movie and the floor lamp across from the fireplace next to the desk has disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Between the interview and Jack's nightmare, several days, or even weeks have passed. There's plenty of time for the Torrances to have moved the lamp.

Twotall

Corrected entry: After the green tennis ball startles Danny he looks straight down the hall and we see one cylindrical ash tray on the right. Four shots later as he walks down the hall towards room 237 another large cylindrical ashtray appears on the left of the hall.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Many hotels has (or had, while smoking indoors were permitted) ashtrays standing evenly-spaced throughout the hallways. I have seen this many times, in several hotels in different countries. And for economical and aesthetical reasons, these trays are bought in bulk and therefore looks similar.

Twotall

Corrected entry: The production team obviously tries to age The Gold Room back to the 20s in the party scene. But they make a mistake inside the bathroom, which has several late twentieth century air ducts, and mid twentieth century acoustic tiling on the ceiling. There's absolutely no indication that these ghostly apparitions, or Jack's delusions, oscillate in time between different decades and that they are not mistakes .

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Except that, as you yourself pointed out in another entry, details from the bar changes between Jack's first visit (1970's setting) and the second (1920's setting). There are also nothing to indicate that the images can NOT alternate between time periods as they see fit. There are no set rules as to how supernatural forces can and can not act.

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Jack walks into The Gold Room the second time there's a party going on which is obviously set around the 1920s. As he sits down at the bar even the cash register has been changed from the modern style we saw when he first met Lloyd to a vintage early 20th century model. What should have been changed also but wasn't are the liquor bottles behind the bar which are the same ones as before, only shuffled around slightly.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: Both of these could be caused by the gradually stronger supernatural qualities of the hotel. The first time in the bar, the hotel is not strong enough to project images of earlier days, so what Jack then sees is what's really there (except for Lloyd and the bottles). Later, as the hotel awakens more and more, the images and ghosts become bigger, stronger and more focused, thus being able to project an entire party with 1920's settings. There are numerous other instances where this is shown. As for the bottles, they might be a part of Lloyd's ghost, thus looking the same, but as a good bartender he occasionally uses or replaces them.

Twotall

Corrected entry: Dick Hallorann approaches The Overlook in his Snow cat and as he first spots the hotel there are tracks where there should be none, in the snow ahead of him. No other vehicles have been up there, so they must be from a previous take.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: He is on the mountain road that "leads" to the Overlook, but there is no reason other places are along this same access road wouldn't exist. It seems perfectly reasonable that anyone else living in that area would have to have a means of transportation as well, or else they would be stranded for months at a time.

Jazetopher

Corrected entry: When Jack, Danny and Wendy are living in The Overlook, (and even in Dick Halloran's house in Florida where the TV and lamps have no wires coming from them) Stanley Kubrick takes great care so that no appliance (coffee makers, radios, etc.) is seen plugged into a wall socket and that no TVs (the sets Wendy watches in the kitchen and with Danny in the lobby) have visible wires. This may be a deliberate choice to show that people (or places) that "Shine" emit enough psychic energy to power appliances. This is brilliant, but the problem is, certain wires were overlooked by the crew and can be seen coming from the lamps in Room 237 and in Wendy and Jack's apartment. If you look closely at the TV set in the kitchen where Wendy hears the forecast about the snowstorm, a tiny bit of that very well-hidden power wire can be seen under the table above the seat on the chair in the middle.

xx:xx:xx

????

Correction: How does "this may be a deliberate choice" turn into a fact? Unless Kubrick has stated he did this, I find it a gross assumption, and therefore the claimed mistake isn't any kind of mistake, either. Beyond this, wouldn't the characters notice the cords missing and wonder how the appliances were powered?

Bob Blumenfeld

Corrected entry: A map of the hedge maze is shown on a signpost in one scene and it is quite small and symmetrical. Later when Shelly and her son are in the maze the camera pans up for a birds-eye view of the actual maze which is much larger and asymmetrical.

Correction: The signpost is not intended to be an exact map of the hedge maze. The hotel and maze are something of a tourist attraction, and the sign is pointing the way.

wizard_of_gore

Corrected entry: The texture of the carpet fabric decorating the Overlook Hotel,is the same as the carpet in the house of the evil child Sid in Disney's Toy Story (1995).

Correction: Pointing out that another film contains an homage to this one is not valid trivia for this film, but for the one that contains the homage. The makers of this film had nothing to do with it.

Tailkinker

Corrected entry: In the French version of the movie, there is something strange. Danny is called "Doc" by his parents (Doc, Doctor, the smart one, as far as I understand, right?), which sounds like "Duck." In French, we do not have such a "Doc" expression for children and the translator used the word "Canard" which means "Duck" (I have never heard anybody call his kid "Canard," except "Mon canard"). Funny and complicated for translator's work since "Canard" and "Doc" do not have the same number of syllables. In fact, Doc is based on the Bugs Bunny Phrase "Whats up, Doc?" It shouldn't change for the French version, because its like a name or nickname.

Correction: Changing a name when translating is hardly a mistake. It was intentional and probably done because French audiences would be less familiar with Bugs Bunny.

Corrected entry: In the first scene which Danny rides around the hotel on his tricycle, he frequently rides over both the floor and carpets. However, the sounds made by his tricycle do not change at the exact time he passes over from one surface to the other.

Correction: I just watched the famous Steadicam shot over and over, just to see if this is true. The 'mistake' is one of faulty observation - while the rear wheels of Tommy's trike are on carpet making little noise the front wheel hits the polished wood floor and makes the loud sound - but the front wheel is often obscured by the tricycle itself. It's all perfectly in sync (and since it was recorded live, there is no reason why it wouldn't be). Not a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Jack has a nightmare and Wendy comes to the rescue. Jack spits on the camera when he wakes up.

Correction: In this scene, Jack salivates when he wakes up from his nightmare, but he does not spit at the camera - he spits on the floor.

Corrected entry: When Jack is sitting at the bar and orders a drink, he takes his wallet out of his back right pocket. Just before that scene when he is walking into the Gold Room, you can very see (thanks to a short jacket and snug jeans) that there is no wallet in his back pocket. After that scene when he goes into Room 273 you can again see that he has no wallet in his pocket though there would have been no time or reason for him to leave it anywhere.

Correction: This is because he does not really have his wallet when he talks with Lloyd (the bartender) in the Gold Room. Two possible explanations to this: He imagines the scene in his cabin fever and alcoholism, or the Overlook is sending him these images to be able to tell him that his credit with the House is fine, i.e. that the spirits of the hotel trust him and value his service. The wallet is in his room the whole time, and actually contains money (as seen in the scene where Grady spills Advocaat on him, when he has retrieved it and gone back to the bar), but he does not carry it around since there is nothing to buy up there.

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Jack is at the ball and the waiter spills on him, he has a stain on his right pant leg, mid thigh. When the waiter attempts to clean him up, the spot disappears without the waiter touching the area.

eeyore0101

Correction: It is very questionable how "real" the scene is. Jack is delirious with cabin fever and alcoholism, so he might be imagining many of these scenes, and the other people at the party are all ghosts. Either way, the stain is not really there, but the spilling of Advocaat was necessary to make Grady and Jack connect and have a conversation. Once the hotel has achieved this purpose, the stain is no longer needed and can disappear.

Twotall

Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy brings Jack breakfast in their hotel room, it starts out as a reflection in a mirror then goes to an actual shot of them and the letters on Jack's shirt are backwards, in the next shot she is on a different side of him and the letters are right again.

Correction: This conversation is two shots: one is shot by Kubrick zooming straight in on a mirror, so the first half or so of their conversation does appear "backwards"; it's actually that mirror reflection. The second half or so is from cutting to a more conventional "front" shot - so now she's on the other side and his letters are straight again. You gotta look closely for this one.

Corrected entry: When Wendy and Danny are watching television, Danny askes her if he can go get his fire engine from his room. In that scene, the television set they are watching does not seem to have any cords or cables attached to it.

Correction: They may have figured out a way to deliberately hide the cords, or perhaps just use very very strong batteries, to end up with the image of a television running on its own with no power cord. Why? It's on the same lines as the typewriter that feeds Jack the piece of paper, the door possibly opened by ghosts - the hotel has psychic energy that makes things run and move on their own.

Corrected entry: When the cook returns to the hotel and Jack Nicholson kills him, he hits him once with the axe. However when Wendy sees his body later he is missing at least one arm and is covered in blood.

Correction: The first time I saw the movie I thought so too, but it really is just the camera angle that throws you off. The camera is in the exact angle that you cannot see the arm at all, so you are only seeing the black glove at the end and the body. It looks as if the arm was cut off, but it was not.

Corrected entry: Three separate hotels can each lay claim to being the real-life Overlook. The film was shot at the Timberline Lodge in Mt. Hood, Oregon. The back story comes from the supposedly haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado (The 1997 TV remake was filmed there as well). And the name was taken from the Overlook Mountain House in Woodstock, NY.

Correction: The film was shot entirely at Elstree Film Studios in the UK, except the helicopter fly past at the start and any long distance shots. The exterior of the Overlook and the Maze was built on the back lot, the interior scenes were shot on stage, Kubrick had two stages knocked into one for bigger spaces. The snow scenes were all shot in the summer get the right light, it was mainly salt and polystyrene with air pads to keep it fluffed, the cameramen even wore snow blowing fans on their backs. A windy day resulted in a "blizzard" that blocked the High Street in Borehamwood one summer afternoon, much to the amusement of the locals.

Corrected entry: When Jack Nicholson swings the axe into the black guy's chest, it is covered in blood in the next shot (as you might expect). However, when he is chasing Danny through the maze only moments later, the axe is clean again.

Correction: There is a shot of Jack wiping off the blood on the axe.

Corrected entry: When Jack is at the bar and asks for bourbon, Lloyd pours him what is obviously Jack Daniels. Although a whiskey, Jack Daniels is not bourbon.

Correction: Federal regulators and bartenders (and presumably a layperson like Jack) do classify it as bourbon. Although JD is not produced in Bourbon County, Kentucky and therefore not authentic bourbon (it is technically Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey), it is otherwise identical.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy first hears Danny crying 'Redrum' from his bedroom, she is in the living room pacing back and forth with a cigarette in her hand. When she enters Danny's bedroom she is no longer holding the cigarette.

Correction: When Wendy hears Danny cry 'redrum' she gets startled and drops the cigarette

Corrected entry: When Jack Nicholson is breaking down the bathroom door he is cutting one panel but then when he sticks his head through and says "here's Johnny," the other panel next to him is perfectly cut out even though he didn't touch it.

Correction: This is not a mistake. There is a cut between these two events, which suggests some discontinuity in time. In the first scene Jack chops through one of the panels, sticks his face through the wall and states the infamous line, and gets his hand cut as he reaches for the lock. Kubrick then cuts away to a scene of the chef approaching the hotel in his snow cat. After which Kubrick cuts back to Wendy recovering from her panic attack, we can now see that the second panel in the door has been chopped out as well. It is completely reasonable to assume that Jack may have continued chopping the second panel out while we were watching the chef approach the hotel. Jack doesn't notice the noise of the snow cat until a few moments later. Just because Kubrick didn't film and show us every progressive detail, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Corrected entry: When Wendy tells Danny's doctor the story of when Jack accidentally dislocated Danny's shoulder, she says it happened five months ago. But when Jack tells Lloyd the story, he says it happened three years ago.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: He's drunk and at a bar. Perhaps he's just lying to the bartender to not seem as dangerous. Everyone looks for the bartender's sympathetic ear.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ullmann is interviewing Jack Torrance for the caretaker's position, he refers to the former caretaker as Charles Grady. Later in the film, when Torrance meets up with Grady in a bathroom, the name changes to Delbert Grady.

Correction: This is not a mistake. The film is about people existing in different time frames. Charles Grady was the caretaker in 1970. Delbert was a waiter years before that. There was some sort of weird force at work that drew Charles (who is Delbert in a different time frame) to the hotel in the 70's and caused him to kill his family. This is being repeated now as Jack is drawn to the hotel and attempts to do the same. It is at the end of the film that we learn that Jack too has previously been at the hotel in a different time frame (in the photo with the date on it). This is why Delbert says both he and Jack have always been there when they talk in the bathroom.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Jack Nicholson goes into the Gold Room bar and orders a drink, he pulls out his wallet to pay. He then shows the bartender that he doesn't have any money. He leaves to go check on room 237 to find the crazy woman who tried to strangle Danny. He then goes back to the bar and orders another drink and now has money in his wallet.

Correction: He imagined his wallet the first time, and therefore imagined that is was empty (or the Overlook sent him that image, to show that his credit was fine and he was on good terms with "the House"). The second bar scene happens much later, after he has picked up his wallet from their room.

Twotall

Corrected entry: After Wendy has locked Jack in the freezer, he escapes because his hallucination of the butler lets him out. A hallucination would not actually be able to unlock a door.

Correction: His hallucinations are products of actual ghosts that haunt the hotel. The whole film centers around this. This is not the only thing that the ghosts do for him (for example, the famous instance of his paper mysteriously being loaded into the typewriter).

Corrected entry: When Wendy goes to talk to Jack for the first time while he is working on his "book" Jack rips the paper out of the typewriter upon her entrance. He then proceeds to yell at her and rip the paper into pieces. When she leaves another piece of paper has magically appeared in the typewriter and is half way through the page. He never replaced the paper while yelling at her.

Correction: The hotel is "feeding" Jack the paper. This shows that the mansion is already controlling Jack's mind.
