            like you to take him around the
            place as soon as we are through.

                         WATSON
            Fine.

            What line of work are you in now?

                         JACK
            I'm a writer um... Teaching has
            been more or less a way of making
            ends meet.

                         ULLMAN (OFF)
            Our people in Denver recommended
            Jack very highly, and, for once, I
            agree with them.

            Let's see, where were we?  Yes.  I
            was about to explain that eh... our
            season here runs from oh May 15th
            to October 30th and then we close
            down completely until the following

            Do you mind if I ask why you do
            that?  It seems to me that the
            skiing up here would be fantastic.

                         ULLMAN (OFF)

            but the problem is the enormous
            cost it would be to keep the road
            to the Sidewinder open.  It's a...
            It's a 25 mile stretch of road -
            gets an average of 20 feet of snow
            during the winter, and there's just
            no way to make it economically
            feasible to keep it clear.  When
            the place was built in 1907, there
            was very little interest in winter
            sports, and this site was chosen
            for its seclusion and scenic beauty.

            Well, it's certainly got plenty of
            that.

JACK laughs.

                         ULLMAN
            That's right.  And did they give
            you any idea in Denver about what
            the job entails?

                         JACK
            Only in a very general way.

                         ULLMAN

            ...the winters can be fantastically
            cruel, and the basic idea is
            to...to cope with the very costly
            damage and depreciation which can
            occur.  And this consists mainly of
            running the boiler, heating
            different parts of the hotel on a
            daily rotating basis, repairing
            damage as it occurs and doing
            repairs, so that the elements can't
            get a foothold.

            Physically, it's not a very
            demanding job.  The only thing that
            can get a bit trying up here during
            the winter is eh... the tremendous
            sense of isolation.

            hired a man named Charles Grady, as
            the winter caretaker.  He came up
            here with his wife and two little
            girls of about eight or ten.  And
            he had a good employment record,
            good references and from what I've
            been told, I mean, he seemed like a
            completely normal individual.  But
            at some point during the winter, he
            must have suffered some kind of a
            complete mental breakdown.

            Mrs. Torrance, I don't think you
            have anything to worry about.  I'm
            quite sure there is nothing
            physically wrong with Danny.

            Oh, yeah.  Oh, yeah, he seems
            absolutely fine now, but you should
            have seen him.

                         DOCTOR
            Oh I know.  Kids can scare you to
            death, but believe me these episodes
            are not at all uncommon, and they
            look much worse than they are.

                         DOCTOR
            Mrs. Torrance, most of the time
            these episodes with kids are never
            explained.  They are brought on by
            emotional factors, and they rarely
            occur again.

                         DOCTOR
            They're more akin to auto-hypnosis,
            a kind of self induced trance.  If
            it re-occurs which I doubt

            No.  He didn't like it too much at

            so we kept him out for a while,
            and, yeah, I...I guess that's about
            the time when I first noticed that
            he was talking to Tony.

            Well it's just one of those things.
            You know... purely an accident, um.
            My husband had oh... been drinking,
            and he came home about three hours
            late, so he wasn't exactly in the
            greatest mood that night.  And well
            Danny had scattered some of his
            school papers all over the room...
            and my husband grabbed his arm, you
            know, and pulled him away from them.
            It's...it's just the sort of thing
            you do a hundred times with a
            child - you know, in a park or on
            the streets - but on this particular
            occasion my husband just... used
            too much strength and he injured
            Danny's arm.

            Yeah.

            Yes.

They move into apartment.  JACK & WENDY move away through
living room into bedroom - CAMERA TRACKS FORWARD after them.

                         ULLMAN (OFF)
            Well the place is very nicely self-
            contained, easy to keep.

JACK feels bed.

                         JACK
            Cosy.

                         ULLMAN (OFF)
            Yes, very cosy for a family, and if
            you feel like spreading out you
            have the rest of the hotel to move
            around in.

                         JACK
            Well, it's very... homely.

                         WENDY
            Yeah.

Maze.  CAMERA TRACKS & PANS with them.

                         ULLMAN
            This is our famous hedge maze.
            It's quite an attraction around
            here.  The walls are thirteen feet
            high and the hedges are about as
            old as the hotel itself.  It's a
            lot of fun,

They walk from end of Maze towards Hotel in b.g.

                         ULLMAN (CONT'D)

            had an hour to spare to find my way
            out.

M.L.S. ULLMAN leads WENDY, JACK & WATSON L-R along front of
Hotel - CAMERA TRACKS with them.

                         ULLMAN
            Ah... construction started in 1907.
            It was finished in 1909.  The site
            is supposed to be located on an
            Indian burial ground, and I believe
            they actually had to repel a few
            Indian attacks as they were building
            it.

ULLMAN points to red Snowcat at entrance of garage.

                                                           30.


                         ULLMAN
            That's our Snowcat.  Can you both
            drive a car?

                         JACK & WENDY
                   (together)
            Yes.

They walk towards SNOWCAT.

                         ULLMAN
            That's fine because basically the
            Snowcat operates very much like a
            car and it won't take you long to
            get the hang of it.

            As a matter of fact we eh...
            brought a decorator in from Chicago
            just last year to refurbish this
            part of the hotel.

                         WENDY

            We can accommodate up to three

            a good party in this room, huh hon?

                         ULLMAN
            I'm afraid you're not going to do
            too well here unless you've brought
            your own supplies.  We always
            remove all the booze from the
            premises when we shut down:

            Dick, if you're ready to do it now,
            I think it would be a good idea if
            you could show Mrs. Torrance the
            kitchen, while I continue on with

            Well one thing for sure, you don't

                         HALLORAN
            I did?

            Yeah.  We call him Doc sometimes,
            you know, like in the Bugs Bunny
            cartoons.  But how did you know that?

                         HALLORAN
            Well I guess I probably heard you
            call him that.

            Well, it's possible, but I honestly

            since we've been with you.

They all stop walking.

            Dick, can we borrow Mrs. Torrance
            for a few minutes?  We're on our
            way through to the basement - I
            promise we won't keep her very long.

                         HALLORAN
            No problem, Mr. Ullman.  I was just

            It's just that you know some places
            are like people, some shine and
            some don't.  I guess you could say
            the Overlook Hotel here has
            something about it that's like
            shining.

            Well, you know Doc, when something

            things that haven't happened yet.
            Well, sometimes they can see things
            that happened a long time ago... I
            think a lot of things happened

            It's really pretty outside.  How
            about taking me for a walk after
            you've finished your breakfast?

WENDY sits down cam.R.

                         WENDY
            Well, something'll come.  It's just
            a matter of settling back into the
            habit of writing every day.

                         JACK
            Yeah... that's all it is.

            I fell in love with it right away.
            When I came up here from my
            interview, it was as though I had
            been here before.  We...we all have
            moments of deja vu, but this was
            ridiculous.  It was almost as
            though I knew what was going to be

            you slip me a bottle of Bourbon, a

            I did hurt him once, okay?  It was
            an accident, complete unintentional.
            It could have happened to anybody.

He raps on counter with hand.

            And it was three goddam years ago.
            The little fucker had thrown all my
            papers all over the floor.  All I
            tried to do was to pull him up.  A
            momentary loss of muscular
            coordination.  I mean... A few

            Mr. Grady, you were the caretaker
            here.  I recognize you.  I saw your
            picture in the newspapers.  You
            eh... chopped your wife and
            daughters up into little bits, and
            eh... and you blew your brains out.
