Jennifer Tilly gave $500, just one of 660 concerned fans who donated to a GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $100,000 for Shelley Duvall, the quirky, Minnie Mouse-voiced star of films like Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and Robert Altman's Nashville and Popeye. Now Tilly will be getting her donation back — and be left wondering, no doubt, exactly what happened.
The campaign was a direct response to a shocking and much-criticized Nov. 18 interview with Duvall by talk-show therapist Phil McGraw on his syndicated Dr. Phil. In it, the 67-year-old Duvall, practically unrecognizable from her doe-eyed younger self, demonstrated signs of severe psychosis »

He breathed livid life into a ’58 Plymouth Fury in Christine, but Stephen King also gives voice to a mean machine on the tracks with Charlie the Choo-Choo, a children's story once read by Jake Chambers in The Dark Tower book series. Featuring train conductor Bob Brooks and his talking locomotive Charlie, the full-length picture book from Mid-World crosses over into our realm with the hardcover release of Charlie the Choo-Choo on November 22nd from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.
Penned by Stephen King under the pseudonym Beryl Evans, Charlie the Choo-Choo tells the story of how Bob first became aware that his train could talk, and the tight-knit friendship that followed, even when Charlie was forced off the tracks and into retirement amongst the weeds.
Writing for a younger audience as Evans, King keeps his believable dialogue and vivid descriptions enjoyable for all ages, taking readers on a journey »

A lot of questions have been raised since Tuesday, November 8: How were the polls so wrong? Why do we still depend on the electoral college in the 21st century? Did “The Shining” predict Donald Trump’s ascent to the presidency? (Wait, what?) Stanley Kubrick’s benchmark horror film has long been the subject of conspiracy theorizing, even inspiring the documentary “Room 237.” This latest might be the strangest yet, however. Watch a video on it below.

Though more tongue-in-cheek than the interpretations offered in Rodney Ascher’s documentary, this latest theory isn’t altogether less plausible than the idea that Kubrick faked the moon landing and used “The Shining” to both confess and absolve himself of his sins. Take, for instance, the selfie Mike Pence took this week to the »

The 67-year-old actress is currently receiving support via a GoFundMe page launched by none other than the daughter of revered filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick directed Duvall in her iconic role opposite Jack Nicholson in 1980's "The Shining." His daughter, Vivian, created the support page for Duvall the same day as the Dr. Phil tell-all, and as of Saturday, the campaign has raised $16,000 of its $100,000 goal.
"Like many older movie stars, embarrassed finances is not uncommon," the page reads. "Showing your love and support for Shelley Duvall by making a donation can start her back on the road to independence and perhaps back to health and for her fans, more superb performances!"

Help is on the way for Shelley Duvall. The 67-year-old star, who quit acting almost 15 years ago, recently drew sympathy from scores of viewers who watched promos for an interview she gave Dr. Phil, in which she revealed she is suffering from mental illness. Many people slammed Dr. Phil McGraw for allegedly exploiting the actress, even calling for a show boycott. One of them, Vivian Kubrick, daughter of Stanley Kubrick, who had directed Duvall in The Shining, said the interview "has nothing to do with compassionate healing." Now she is taking the initiative to help the actress financially. On Friday, Vivian sent up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Duvall and as of Saturday »
A fundraising campaign to benefit Shelley Duvall has been launched by the daughter of “The Shining” director Stanley Kubrick, after it was revealed earlier this week that Duvall is struggling with mental illness. Vivian Kubrick started the fundraising campaign on Friday, the same day that an interview with Duvall was slated to air on “Dr. Phil.” “Showing your love and support for Shelley Duvall by making a donation can start her back on the road to independence and perhaps back to health and for her fans, more superb performances!” the GoFundMe page for the campaign reads.

Yesterday, Mike Pence got the House Republicans together to figure out how one of those darn “selfie sticks” work. The result was a selfie of unmitigated terror: a sea of old, pasty faces, like some sort of chorus of the damned, frozen and oblivious. It immediately drew connections with Paul Ryan’s similarly forced selfie from earlier this year, and both were compared to another hellish image of the damned—the final shot of The Shining. A new video explores this connection more fully. The thesis: Did Stanley Kubrick predict the Trump/Pence win in The Shining? You decide.
The video concludes with a fact more horrifying than anything in Kubrick’s classic: the fact that Mike Pence does not know how condoms work. It urges viewers to donate to Planned Parenthood.

After more than a decade away from the spotlight, Shelley Duvall gave an interview to Dr. Phil on Friday in which the actress reveals she's suffering from mental illness and claims that there are entities that intend to harm her.
"If I say I'm healthy, the first thing they'll do is hurt me tonight," Duvall says, unclear about who "they" are.
Best known for her role opposite Jack Nicholson in 1980's The Shining, Duvall, 67, last appeared on the big screen in the 2002 film, Manna From Heaven. Since then, Duvall admits to Dr. Phil that she's been alone "too much."
Dressed in sweatpants and a T-shirt, the two-time Emmy-nominated actress appears almost unrecognizable from the slender starlet many fans remember her as. While Dr. Phil points to her deteriorating health as a possible cause, Duvall claims »
Yesterday we reported on Dr. Phil McGraw’s ongoing efforts to further monetize his own lack of shame by trotting a clearly mentally ill Shelley Duvall out in front of the cameras under the pretense of offering her some of his signature brand of exploitative “help.” Numerous people criticized McGraw’s “therapy” as an obvious ratings grab, including Vivian Kubrick, the daughter of Duvall’s The Shining director, Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick posted a scathing letter on Twitter yesterday denouncing Dr. Phil for posting excerpts from Duvall’s interview, and displaying her illness to the world as part of his “utterly heartless form of entertainment.”
Now, Kubrick is putting together an effort to give some concrete assistance to Duvall. Kubrick has organized a GoFundMe drive in the actress’ name, in the hope that the funds might put her “back on the road to independence.” Kubrick’s post doesn’t list any »

Friday’s episode of top-rated syndicated talk show “Dr. Phil” was devoted to an interview with Shelley Duvall, prompting a discussion about whether the show was exploiting the actress’ mental health problems.
Host Phil McGraw interviewed Duvall at length for the episode, dubbed “From Hollywood Star to Near Isolation.”
Duvall is best known for her starring roles in two movies from 1980: Stanley Kubrick’s classic “The Shining” and Robert Altman’s “Popeye,” Duvall has been out of the public eye for over a decade and lives in Texas where the interview took place.
A rep for “Dr. Phil” declined to comment on criticism of the show. The session was taped last month, a source said. Since then, the show has coordinated with Duvall’s family and has been providing free resources to help the actress at her home.
The conversation between McGraw and Duvall took up first 45 minutes of the show. The »

"I just think she deserves a great deal more respect," Kubrick told The Hollywood Reporter. "I am just trying to collect as much money as I can."

Shelley Duvall’s blood-curdling screams of terror in the climax of The Shining are an indelible part of film history, and the leading lady of the 1980 horror classic went on to work in everything from comedies to children’s television shows in the decades that followed.
The actress, now 67, has stepped away from the spotlight in recent years, but that hasn’t diminished the imprint she’s left — those curious wide eyes, that high-pitched voice, her signature slender frame — in films like Popeye and Annie Hall, and in her collaborations with auteur Robert Altman (Nashville, McCabe & Ms. Miller, 3 Women).
