Visible crew/equipment: When the cook shows Danny his car, the camera moves down the length of the car. When it reaches the large tail you can see the crew reflected in the side panel. (00:40:30)

Trivia: Stephen King makes a cameo appearance as the band conductor of the 'ghostly' Gage Creed Orchestra.

Trivia: The hotel used for The Overlook in this film is the very hotel that Stephen King stayed in (in Estes Park, Colorado) that spooked him and inspired the novel 'The Shining'. The DVD commentary informs us that King reasoned that there was no better building to portray The Overlook than the one it was originally based upon.


Danny Torrance: Just like pictures in a book.

Wendy Torrance: Well, at least you got plenty to eat in there, Jack.

Jack Torrance: Women, can't live with them, can't kill them.
