King apparently disliked Kubrick’s film adaptation, which resulted in the godawful made-for-tv adaptation that you wouldn’t even remember if I hadn’t just typed about it. Kubrick FTW.
Stanley Kubrick’s personal copy of Stephen King’s novel, The Shining. This well-worn book, normally housed in the Stanley Kubrick Archive in London but currently on tour in a traveling exhibition, is filled with Kubrick’s notes and comments. Many passages are highlighted, and Kubrick has filled the margins with hand-written notes that run the gamut from notating passages that inspired him, to crossing out sections he found silly.
