The Deleted Epilogue of "The Shining"

All copies of the filmed ending were destroyed (well, some say that one copy survived), but this blog now publishes the script for the scene. It was in fact shot, but Kubrick thought better of it and cut it out.

It's a very anti-climactic scene -- by design. Kubrick (the blog tells us) liked Danny and his mom, and wanted a scene at the end to reassure the audience that they were okay and were recovering nicely from their shock. So that's the scene -- they're okay and recovering nicely from their shock.

It's about as interesting as that sounds.

Not a very horror-ish ending. A bit like the very long deflation at the end of Psycho where An Psychiatrist explains to us everything we already pretty much understood about Norman Bates and his Psychological Problems.* Kubrick realized that and cut the scene from all the prints and ordered them destroyed.

I find it interesting that even good directors film these unnecessary scenes-- that they don't realize in the scripting phase they're unnecessary, but only realize it when they see the filmed footage cut together as an unfinished cut. James Cameron filmed a whole unnecessary introduction to Newt's family for Aliens, the family doing some surveying and prospecting work prior to the alien infestation. Apparently his original thinking was that if he doesn't show the audience Newt's family, the audience will not really accept that Newt once had a family.

Only later did he realize the audience was very willing to accept that a little girl must have come from somewhere and thus the family didn't need to be "proven" to have existed to the audience -- Newt could just say she lost her family, and people would be okay with that.

I watch a lot of deleted scenes when I watch DVD's and they almost all are completely unnecessary, often in a "Why would you even think you should film this?" way. But I think that's partly just because I already know the way the movie is "supposed to go" so I'm biased against these Scenes Which Don't Belong. Still, while I (and most other people) would have that bias, there's usually a real pointlessness to deleted scenes. They seem so obviously misconceived it's surprising that anyone, especially solid professionals, spent a few hundred thousand or even a million to film them.

I can't prove this, but I bet you would find a high correlation between mediocre-to-poor movies and a bunch of deleted scenes on the DVD. My theory being, movies with a lot of deleted scenes were never really properly thought out in the scripting phase, and the filmmakers were still trying to "find the story" in the editing bay. Whereas in most movies that really succeed, the story was always present and obvious in the script, and so nothing really needed to be cut for the finished product.

But then, bad movies are always cut down, often to the bone (and often cutting crucial plot-explaining scenes, which is why bad movies tend to make even less sense than they might have), the theory being that if you've got a bad product at least don't keep the audience for too long.

From Lilieks' blog.

* There's a theory that in a detective novel, the murder represents moral chaos, and the detective becomes the agent who restores moral order to the chaos.

But very often -- so often it's almost de rigeur -- horror intentionally leaves the moral order in chaos; the heroes may survive, but it's not the case that It's All Better Now. In fact this dark outlook is one of the defining characteristics of horror -- even if you survive, you're permanently scarred.

So these Everything's Back to Normal Again endings (including the psychiatrist in Psycho, restoring the moral order by rationally explaining Bates' complexes in a reassuring manner -- that which can be named and categorized can be mastered, a lesson we know from Adam) seem out-of-place in horror movies.

What the hell I am yammering about now? Someone please stop me.

Look, sorry. But when you're writing all day, any random thought you have more than five words to say about becomes a post.

If I think more than five words about hawks, then I'm probably going to write a post about hawks.

The BAE Systems Hawk is a British single-engine, advanced jet trainer aircraft. It first flew in 1974 as the Hawker Siddeley Hawk, and subsequently produced by its successor companies, British Aerospace and BAE Systems, respectively. It has been used in a training capacity and as a low-cost combat aircraft.

25 A good editor can make entire scenes unnecessary by showing you what they want to get across rather than outright stating it.

If you've got a crappy editor and/or studio interference, you occasionally end up with scenes that serve little purpose or detract from the film.

I see Dark City as a big example of the studio fucking up the film. The studio dictated that there had to be an intro by The Doctor (Kiefer Sutherland) and insisted that certain parts of the story be established at the beginning.

The result was that you have a movie where you are about 45 minutes ahead of everyone in it and are waiting for them to catch up.

The director's cut of that film is one of the true examples I can think of where it is both a completely different film and a definite improvement on the theatrical product.

Hawks and falcons, despite many similarities, are very different predators.

One of them (I think Hawks) grab their prey and kill it with their talons and/or beaks. The other (Falcons, IIRC) instead use the truly epic speed they can build up on a dive and strike their prey with their feet, normally closed like mini-fists.

Other than that, I got nothin'.

Posted by: toby928© for TB at January 24, 2013 02:42 PM (QupBk)

61 I think the issue of deleted scenes is really dependent on the movie. Especially if the film is based on another work -- especially a book -- then the deleted scenes may contain bits from the book that just couldn't fit into the runtime of the final film, but which provide some backstory that fans of the original work would be expecting and that newcomers to the subject may find unnecessary but interesting. "Lord of the Rings" had to have a bunch of deleted scenes just by the very nature of the project; there was no way you could get the entirety of all three books into three movies, but the fanbase is so devoted that it was almost a requirement that Jackson Co. film as much of the material as possible and then cut it up in the post-production. You don't NEED the scene in the Houses of Healing between Eowyn and Faramir in "Return of the King," but for fans of the book it's important.

Now, for original films that aren't based on another source, or that draw only loosely from another source, then I think your theory about the number of deleted scenes included on the DVD is absolutely true. When you're writing a free-form script that doesn't have to pay attention to any existing source material then you have the freedom to write what you want, film what you want, and essentially make your movie what you want it to be. A lot of deleted scenes in that situation means one of two things to me:

A) Instead of cutting out the unnecessary stuff when the story was still in the paper and ink script phase, the story editing got done after the much more expensive production phase. That's just sloppy.

OR

B) The studio saw a rough cut of the film, hated it, and demanded the director cut out whole chunks of the story to make the movie into something they preferred.

64 The extra scenes (like Cameron's from Aliens) are shot because there is a saying in scriptwriting, "If it ain't on the page, it ain't on the stage." So, a good script will show you something rather than tell you; Someone (Ace?) mentioned something like this about Alien Resurrection, movies that have characters running around saying things about what is happening are poorly written. David Mamet agrees: http://movieline.com/2010/03/23/david-mamets-memo-to-the-writers-of-the-unit/

Scenes are cut from bad movies so theaters can have more screenings and sell more tickets to recoup as much production $$ as possible before it has to be pulled.

are completely unnecessary, often in a "Why would you even think you

already know the way the movie is "supposed to go" so I'm biased against
these Scenes Which Don't Belong. Still, while I (and most other

deleted scenes. They seem so obviously misconceived it's surprising
that anyone, especially solid professionals, spent a few hundred
thousand or even a million to film them.


I tend to think the opposite unless the deleted scene detracts from the story. I don't mind watching the extra stuff that gets cut out if it just adds a little more backstory or exposition. If it's a movie I really like, I want to watch every bit of filming done on it no matter what.

24...A hawk made a massive nest in woods behind BF's house. She came back the next year to raise another brood. The third year a Great Horned Owl took over the nest and the hawk had to find other lodging.

Just having a Great Horned Owl in the area...is a threat to Hawks.
Owls hunt at night.
They will attack the nest of a Hawk, or anEagle,and feed their young to their own babies.

90 I could give or take Newt's family, but for me the scene whose absence
always bothers me is the automated defense bots in the hallway.



That was a great scene, but I think Cameron took it out because the audience would start thinking that most of the alien menace was killed and that there would be less tension. How many aliens were killed in those hallways? Hundreds? Without that scene, you don't know how many of them are crawling in the ceiling panels toward the main characters and it's a lot more scary.

If we saw humans the way we see other species we'd think -- man, the males are *way* bigger than the females.

I'm 180 and most of my girlfriends have been 120-130. I'm 50% bigger. And usually half a foot taller.

And given that men -- even the lazy ones -- have less body fat and greater muscle mass -- we are more than 50% stronger than women.

I sort of like when they do that, in one way: Especially if the trailer has jokes, I like having different takes or different jokes in the trailer, because then the joke isn't spoiled in the movie.

Although sometimes it does bother me-- why is that line I've now heard 100 times not in the movie?

There's a line from the What About Bob? trailer that still bothers me. Bill Murray says "No one's ever hated me enough to kill me before," and Richard Dreyfuss responds, "How do you know?"

It's not in the movie. It bothers me. It also bothers me because I can't see where it would even fit (given that in the movie, bob is never aware Dreyfuss actually hates him or wants to kill him; he thinks it's all some type of therapy).

120 Someone socked Roger Corman upthread, but actually Corman emphasizes the opposite: know exactly what you're going to do before you start filming.

According to him, this is why so many films go over budget.

You can't make the films he does for as little as he does without pre-planning. Corman is really an engineer by trade and abhors waste.

I think Hitchcock had little tolerance for the film's not being tight before shooting either, but I'm not as sure about that as with Corman.

A and B were shooting at the same time. Then C and D kicked in when there were depleted.



IIRC, there were 4 guns total with 2 guns each covering two different hallways. A and B guns covered one approach, while C and D guns covered another approach. The aliens first test one hallway and make it to the welded blast doors that were barricaded. They couldn't break through that way. They then attempt to breach another hallway and almost make it with one gun that had only a handful of rounds remaining in it.

Especially for Red Tail Hawks...and Coopers Hawks.

But even though the males are smaller, they are fierce hunters...and often attack prey that is bigger than they are.

Male Coopers Hawks can carry off a full-grown chicken.
Which is why they're referred to as 'chicken hawks'.

The larger female Hawks usually remain on the nest, to protect the babies...while the males go out and hunt.

139 Apparently his original thinking was that if he doesn't show the audience Newt's family, the audience will not really accept that Newt once had a family.

This reminds me of the riff that comes up so often if you listen to Rifftrax, MST3K, or Cinematic Titanic whenever a character has to travel from one point to another. Bad movies like to pad out their screentime with lots of filler, and there's nothing more filling than a shitload of walking, driving and parking.Need to add half an hour to your film?Thenby Jove, Audience Member, you are GOING to watch Polly Protagonist walk from the front door to her car, open the car door, get behind the wheel, close the door, turn the key, pull out of the driveway, and proceed to drive down the road, AND YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE IT.

We don't need to see any of that. It's enough that she was in one place and now she's somewhere else; clearly she traveled there somehow. Provided there's no implication that she broke the laws of space-time to reach her destination -- like, say, leaving her house at sunset and arriving at her destination half an hour away at high noon, which is not unheard of in really, really bad movies -- then we don't need to see the actual travel. Just like we don't need to see evidence of Newt's family to know she had a family. She exists, therefore SOMEONE gave birth to her somehow. You'd have to be a cynical, hard-hearted bastard to see a little girl all alone and surrounded by murderous aliens and say, " How am I supposed to feel any sympathy for her when I don't know anything about her history?"

I thought it worked, despite the fact that it was almost an exact rip-off of Murder by Death

160 The Red-Tail Hawk is the most common in the United States. It's legal, in most states, to possess them for purposes of falconry. Falconry is a hobby for rich people with a lot of time on their hands. It's generally best to hunt with a hawk that hasn't imprinted with you as their parent figure. The imprinting can screw up their training. When hawks molt, it's generally recommended that you save their pinions and tail feathers. If their new feathers get damaged, you can use the old ones, super glue, and some bamboo skewers to fix them.

163 I hate how in movies, you can apparently ride a horse at a gallop for hours on end like it was a freakin motorcycle.

And the fact that people in movies have absolutely no peripheral vision whatsoever.

167 One of my favorite riffs from Mystery Science Theater 3000 occurs during "The Starfighters". They're marveling at some scene that probably didn't need to be in the movie and Crow remarks that the "cutting room floor was remarkably clean."

168 They didn't expect 20+ states to give them the finger.

You may be too generous. According to the article:







The Obama administration and 18 states are preparing to establish the
insurance markets, a centerpiece of the 2010 law designed to extend
coverage to millions of uninsured people


That's 30+ by my count. That's some miserable failure right there.

It would add a whole new level of hilarity to the remake,t hat's for sure.

"What's that smell?"
"What smell?"
"You don't smell that? It smells like burning hair and sizzling flesh."

"Oh, that's just Nicolas Cage burning to death in a big wicker statue."

"Oh, is that all? No wonder it's got an undertone of cooked ham."

180 I have been wondering about that movie. Now that I know it is teh suck I will avoid it.

Meh. It was fun enough. Shootiness and a very WWE kind of fight at the end. I wouldn't say no if I found it in the $5.00 bin at Walmart.

He was nominating two minions to something.

The thing is, he was getting bothered by a fly that kept buzzing around his head.

1. Why are there flies in the White House?
2. It's January.
3. Beleezebub is the Lord of the Flies.

And now, back to cleaning closets while you all discuss this.

Does anyone else do that, btw? Watch certain movies only because there's a Rifftrak available (or similar comedic voiceover)? I would have never watched "The Happening" without Rifftrax. I'd probably live a much longer, happier life if I'd never watched it at all, but at least the Rifftrak made it bearable.

231 One of the things I think is critical to the idea of deleted scenes is a critical part of the movie making art; it is the fact that words convey ideas significantly differently than pictures and dialogue. And while it is the craft of the movie maker to look at words and *imagine* the way that pictures and dialogue will convey a different meaning than the words on featureless paper, they sometimes fall short and more or less is said in the film than what the filmmaker imagined.

If Aliens were a novel, and you read the team coming across a 1 random little girl who had evaded the aliens somehow when everyone else had died; would you not secretly suspect the writer might be putting a doppleganger into the mix? It is common enough a plot device. To accept her fully would you not need her humanized with flashbacks of times past, and inward dialogues? Well when we see Newt on screen she IS a little girl with no flaws, acting like a little girl, looking like a little girl, we feel she is a little girl. All of this can't be known until we SEE Newt be that little girl.

Maybe the theory of bad movies and deleted scenes is the filmmaker cannot well envision how film tells a story and so makes a bad film of what could potentially be a good story, if only given to a filmmaker who knew how to tell it.

237 Oh, and Anchorman had so many outtakes and abandoned subplots, they literally used them to make a second movie. A 93 minute movie.

242 re: "I think Hitchcock had little tolerance for the film's not being tight before shooting either, but I'm not as sure about that as with Corman."

He didn't knowingly overshoot, but he always cut out stuff. Often not enough stuff. Most of his movies have one too many scenes in them. The therapeutic dingleberry hanging off Psycho, the letter-voiceover scene in Vertigo...infuriating fuckups.

Corman's rule sounds good, but why do I give a shit if a studio wastes their money? I'm not a producer. Fuck them. Heaven's Gate is a great movie. I don't care if a bunch of assholes lost their asshole money betting on it. They'd have spent it on whores!

(Since you're a commie now, Ace, maybe you can join me in being pissed at how the movie audience is made to confuse studios' interest in profit with their own interest in quality entertainment. People criticize movies they haven't even seen by calling them bombs. That's fucked up.)

I think Corman's rule is a good one for filmmaker's to keep in mind, though, especially new filmmakers. When what you want to do is make movies, and you need someone to finance them, you need to keep the cost down. You don't ahve to make crap movies, either; you just have to make sure the story is tight as a drum and doesn't have any dead spots. Once you've built up enough cred you can start being a little looser about what you create, and the financial backers will give you some more leeway.

251 The other cool potential home engineering project would be a minimally expensive drone that had a claymore design engineered to ablate the recoil lateral to the carrier....

I often wondered why the US IFV/CAV Bradley force did not have ablative claymores mounted on the side in case of human wave attacks....

252 There are always exceptions to the statement that deleted scenes were correct in being deleted.

My entry for this discussion is the scene I liked best from the movie "High Fidelity." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5ziBCarxEk

It only appeared on the DVD, and it caused Beverley D'Angelo not to have a credit for the movie. But her scene and her delivery in it was deadly cold.

Coopers hawks and Sharp-Shinned hawks will also open up bird feeders (unless they contain sunflower seeds). I thought I had a squirrel problem for a while until I finally caught a Coopers Hawk repeatedly cracking open the clear plastic on different bird feeders.

I took pictures of what I thought was a Coopers hawk breaking a bird feeder, only to have a bird vet tell me I had pictures of Coopers and sharp-shinned hawks (not to be confused with pointy elbowed hawks).

There is a deleted scene from "Star Wars" with Luke and Royshooting the swamp rats on Tatooine, and on the way home, Luke looks up to see the Federation ship shooting Leia's and thd made a comment.
I always thought when he was making the first three prelouge movies, he could tie it all together to that as the very last scene in Episode III. But i am not near as smart as George Lucas.

256 Hawks are badass. They make an impression here when they swoop in, grab a bird and splatter blood on the patio door. It's like CSI with feathers.

I bootlegged it off TPB. It was a waste of a perfectly good DVD burning it. Had I paid hard money in a theater, I'd have walked out after 45 minutes and demanded my money back. Apollo 18 sucks just as bad too, don't even bother pirating it.

259 Damn, too much caffeine. I'm twitchy today and hit enter too soon.

In NJ there are 3 species of hawks that look very similar Coopers hawks, sharp-shinned hawks and Merlins. That doesn't take the differences in plumage between juvenile and adult into account. I'm not that avid a bird watcher, I borrowed a 500mm lens to take pictures of what I thought was just one Coopers hawk opening up a bird feeder in my yard. I found our it was 2 types of hawks (coopers and sharp-shinned) at the feeder plus another type called a Merlin in the general area.

Posted by: Lurkasaurus at January 24, 2013 03:38 PM (FkupK)

260 Speaking of hawks, I opened the garage door and our cat came running in. I stepped out for a smoke a caught a hawk circling about 50 feet above.

After seeing all the carnage the cat has wrought on the local birds, I told my wife that I would bust a gut laughing if she got carried away by a bird of prey. Cosmic justice.

Nope. They both fire at the same time - sometimes wastefully at the same target (I presume). One ends up with rounds remaning."

I was going to say that the whole concept of an unmanned gun that can only operated for 2 minutes before a repair crew has to go out and fix it, is obviously stupid wasteful that no sane authority would have paid to install it.

Then I remembered there's supposed to be a mighty, murderously corrupt Earth Company.

267 I would love to see the pie fight seen in dr. Strangelove.

I loved the French Plantation scene in Apocalypse Now. It in fact could have been the basis for a whole new film. Other scenes like the extended playboy bunny scene was unnecessary.

I also loved the video interview Uma Thurman did of John Travolta in Pulp fiction.

270 "What the hell I am yammering about now? Someone please stop me."

I really wish you would stop. You don't know what you're talking about. There is absolutely no correlation between cut scenes and script quality. There are so many improvised scenes shot and deleted during filming because it costs so much more to reshoot if you're missing some critical logical explanation or "bridge." So much easier to leave it on the cutting-room floor.

In all fairness to Ace, I feel the need to point out a quote from this post that is never going to go away. We will be using it whenever we disagree with Ace and are feeling snarky and petty and childish:
"Look, sorry. But when you're writing all day, any random thought you have more than five words to say about becomes a post."
I apologize in advance. But when I'm having a lousy day and am feeling superior, you can expect me to quote this back at you. And maybe add "asshat" in there or something. I'll be super juvenile about it. And have bad spelling.

Hugs and kisses on all your pink parts,
Bobby
