Rare Photos Of Directors On The Set Of Their Iconic Films

Stanley Kubrick With Jack Nicholson On The Set Of The Shining


Kubrick filmed most of the interior shots of The Shining on studio sets. The inside of the Overlook Hotel was largely modeled after the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park (it’s now known as Majestic Yosemite Hotel). The lobby was recreated at Elstree Studios in Britain. The 1980 film is based on Stephen King’s 1977 novel. Kubrick was famous for tiring out the cast and crew by doing numerous takes for each scene. He used a Steadicam to create an immersive feel in many parts of the film. The movie is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror movies ever made.
