Behind-the-Scenes: The Shining’s Final Shot

See the line? Jack Nicholson’s face is superimposed onto a vintage 1920s photograph

From A Stanley Kubrick Tumblr:

A test print for the iconic last image from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Jack Nicholson’s face was superimposed on an original photo from the twenties. Emilio D’Alessandro remembers: “These are two of the numerous print samples that Stanley requested to evaluate the result. A slightly darker halation around Jack’s head gives the trick away. Better do it again, right, Stanley?”

Photo taken from Stanley Kubrick and me, the compelling memoir of Emilio D’Alessandro, personal assistant to Stanley Kubrick for thirty years. A collection of heartfelt private memories spanning from A Clockwork Orange to Eyes Wide Shut, Stanley Kubrick and me is a unique biography offering a completely different perspective on an extraordinary modern artist.
