Stanley Kubrick – The Shining – Telegram

KUBRICK - The Shining - TelegramOne of my favorites from the Stanley Kubrick files I uncovered in film producer John Calley’s estate, an urgent telegram from Calley to Kubrick describing a book by Stephen King “the same fellow who wrote Salem’s Lot” called “The Shine.” Of course Calley was talking about “The Shining” and of course Kubrick loved the story and chose it as his next film project. As a humorous side note I also discovered a memo regarding the shipment of Jack Nicholson’s personal effects to London during filming, which included 44 cans of tuna fish!

These documents were later sold at Julien’s Auctions for over $2,000.00
