The Shining (1980)

March 19th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1980's, Oregon film, Oregon film old definition, Oregon location (cameo)

Stanley Kubrick used the real Timberline Lodge (for establishing shots) AND built a fake Timberline Lodge replica ( for exterior shots) on the studio backlot in England when he adapted Stephen King’s The Shining to the big screen.

The Shining would be Jack Nicholson’s fourth Oregon film – after Five Easy Pieces; Drive, He Said (which he directed and co-wrote); and the Oscar winning One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

I hereby claim The Shining as an Oregon film, based on the cameo appearance made by the WPA project on the hill we call Timberline Lodge.
