Continuity mistake: In one of the most endearing scenes from one of the greatest movies of all times, nobody noticed that as Dorothy sings "Over the Rainbow" the haystack she's standing next to just materializes between shots. Later it disappears long before the twister reaches the house. If you watch the movie you'll see the exact spot where the haystack should be seen as Aunt Em gives Dorothy a cruller and says to her, "Â…and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble".

Suggested correction: No she didn't throw that apple down. Look again, she put it in her other hand and picked up the can.

The Shining (1980)

Question: Why is the supposed foreign version of the Shining with the deleted ending impossible to find? Does anybody have this version or know how to get it? I have a feeling it's an elaborate Internet rumor and does not actually exist.

????

Chosen answer: Stanley Kubrick changed the ending of The Shining after it had been in theatres for about three days. About ten minutes of footage was removed. The full US theatrical version runs 145mins, everywhere else 115mins after Kubrick trimmed the movie to remove what he considered "unnecessary" scenes. There is no specific "foreign version" save for cuts any TV networks may make for transmission.

Two shots later as she walks away from Aunt Em and Uncle Henry the tire has been moved. The angle at which it hangs has been changed and the piece of rope hanging on the bottom of it is now three or four inches closer to dead center than it was before.
