On the Anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's Death, a TV Spot for The Shining Comprised Entirely of Footage Not Used in the Movie

It was thirteen years ago today that Stanley Kubrick passed away.

To commemorate, here’s a video that has been weaving in and out of my Twitter feed and inbox for the last week or so. It’s a UK TV spot for The Shining made entirely out of alternative cuts and unused takes.

The reason that none of this footage was used is simple: back in 1980, the actual negative would have to be cut to make good quality edits, and that’s obviously not a desirable way to handle something so valuable. Using “good enough” alts was a pretty practical solution.
