After The Shining had already been in theaters for one week in 1980, Stanley Kubrick recalled its final scene, bringing its run time from 146 minutes to 144 and concluding with one of the most iconic final images of all time (the framed photo of Jack at the July 4, 1921 ball). Toy Story 3 helmer and Finding Nemo co-director Lee Unkrich currently runs an obsessive, wonderful site devoted to the film and many of the artifacts surrounding it. One of those artifacts is now a much more detailed look at what Kubrick, very late in the game, decided to do away with. Unfortunately, Kubrick's decision led to the destruction of the very ending's footage, which centered on Wendy and Danny in the hospital, post-Overlook ordeal. Stuart Ullman attempts to convince Wendy to come stay by the ocean in L.A., and finally, ominously throws Danny the tennis ball which led him into Room 237. »
