#87 THE SHINING (1980)
ALL WORK AND NO
PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY
infinite number of crazy things are already going on at the Overlook
Hotel as Jack Torrance and his family are staying as caretakers for
the winter. Jack wants to catch up on his writing, and has been
spending days holed up typing away the great American masterpiece.
His stressed out wife, Wendy, stumbles on a box full of his work, and
she looks through in horror as every single page has the phrase, "All
Work and No Play Makes Jack and Dull Boy" thousands and thousands of
times. The real life compulsiveness of director Stanley Kubrick was
even creepier, as he had each page typed manually, and did not permit
xerox copies to be used.
