The Shining Goofs
"Er, someone wasn't on top of their game that day..."
See the goofs, blunders and plain ole mistakes in the 1980 Horror / Occult movie starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Crothers More Cast
We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to Marty LawsonThe opening sequence shows an aerial view of the Overlook, if you notice there isn't room in the back of the hotel for a maze and no maze appears around the hotel.
Thanks to Peter AIn the scene where Jack tries to break down the door with his ax, you see that he breaks through the right side only where he says his famous line: "Here's Johnny!, but the next scene the left panel is also broken.
Thanks to Tom O'DonoghueIn the first gold room scene where Jack gets a drink from the bar tender, he is served his shot with an ice cube. When the camera goes back to Jack after talking to the barman, the ice has melted.
Thanks to TravisThe bartending scene where Jack asks for a bottle of Bourbon, the bartender pulls out a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey, which is not a bourbon.
Thanks to Tim KoontzWhen you look very carefully at the bat when Jack swings it, you can tell very easily that it is a rubber bat when it just whips around the lady's head!
Thanks to LexiOn the first part of the movie where Jack is driving to the Hotel, in one of the frames, you can see a helicopter's shadow in the bottom right hand corner.
Thanks to Marty lawsonIn the scene where the mom is talking with the doctor you can clearly see the ashes on her cigarette changing from one cut to another.
Thanks to jim sunderland IIIIn the very first arial shot of the overlook hotel, you can see the churning blades of a helicopter, in the top portion of the screen.
Thanks to AnonymousJack pulls the paper out of typewriter when Duvall interrupts him and when she leaves he starts typing again on a piece of paper that magically appears in the typewriter!
Thanks to jim sunderland IIIIf you look very closely, while Dick is talking on the telephone at Stapleton international airport, the change on his briefcase moves slightly in a couple of shots.
Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "The Shining".
