Original sweater worn by actor Danny Lloyd during production of The Shining.
Although many props and costumes from The Shining ended up as part of the Stanley Kubrick Archive in London, this sweater, as well as many other props, costumes and furniture pieces, were sold to crew members after completion of production.
Danny’s iconic “Apollo 11” sweater was originally purchased by Assistant Editor Gill Smith, who bought it for her nephew. After he grew out of it, the sweater was returned to her, and it remained in her possession for the next thirty years.
The sweater is now in the personal collection of The Caretaker.
Film Editor, Ray Lovejoy (R), sits next to Stanley Kubrick’s longtime personal assistant Emilio D’Alessandro on the The Shining’s Colorado Lounge set.
Lovejoy, who had previously edited for Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey, was unable to complete his editing duties on The Shining due to a hand injury. Assistant Editor Gordon Stainforth stepped in and finished editing the film with Kubrick.
On the table in front of them sits the Overlook Hotel scrapbook, a prop which, although it figures heavily in the novel, does not appear much in the film. A number of scenes were shot with the scrapbook, including Jack finding it in the basement and subsequently showing it to Wendy, but all of these scenes were deleted from the finished film.
The original scrapbook can be seen in the Stanley Kubrick Archive in London.
