Stanley Kubrick

The Shining (film)

23 May, 1980

Kubrick’s film adaptation of King’s novel, The Shining, is released in theatres. It is slow to turn a profit, and initial reviews are mixed. Of the novel, Kubrick says

The novel (The Shining) is by no means a serious literary work. but the plot is for the most part extremely well worked out, and for a film that is all that really matters.
