Stanley Kubrick and the Apollo Hoax

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

Thank you for starting this topic. It’s a welcome break from the Corono(scam) that has managed to simulate a god-like omnipresence for the past 4–5 months (though it feels longer).

I wanted to point out a couple of small observations before I forget. One, with respect to Pokerniko’s comment about the “switch on the far left in the first picture . . . disappear[ing] in the second picture.” Correct me if I’m wrong, but, it looks to me like the actress’s head is directly covering where that switch would be.

That said, there are other inconsistencies, such as the lower portion of the window frame just beneath the “Office” sign.

Lastly (for now), it may be worth noting that the character Jack Torrance (from The Shining) shares the same first name as the one Stanley Kubrick’s father went by: according to his Wikipedia page, “[h]e [Stanley] was the first of two children of Jacob Leonard Kubrick (May 21, 1902 – October 19, 1985), known as Jack or Jacques . . .”

In the picture your posted about the clock changing its position, I also noticed that they added some kind of refrigerator just below it and that the switch on far left in the first picture (the one next to the door) disappear in the second picture.
Ah, the disappearing light switches. I'd almost forgot.

Earlier there was a continuity error when Hallorann is giving Wendy and Danny a tour of the kitchen.

They enter room C4...

Image

...and later exit room C3.

Image

As they walk down the hall you see the red lights above the doors.

Image

They're either meant to represent photographic darkrooms or a closed studio set. Or both?

Image

Oh well, since we're in the kitchen.

SCS:

"it looks to me like the actress’s head is directly covering where that switch would be.”

I don't think so, the switch is higher and right next to the padlock

"That said, there are other inconsistencies, such as the lower portion of the window frame just beneath the “Office” sign."

I noticed that detail too but I think in the first picture the door is open while it is closed in the second one.

Yes, you are correct. The switch should be just to right of the padlock. I was looking for the other set of switches over (and lower) on the right. Thanks for correcting my tunnel vision.

Also, it does look like the door being open/closed likely accounts for that window frame “inconsistency” that I pointed out.

Why did Stanley change the topiary animals in Stephen King's novel to a hedge maze?



Wasn't that nice of dear Em and Pee to bring poor Alex a fruit basket.

Starting with Dr. Strangelove, in some form or another, there is a rabbit in every film.

Notice the words "bloody March Hare" are absent from the subtitles.




A Clockwork Orange
In Nadsat slang rabbit means work. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix ... ork_Orange

The name of the inn where Barry had his leg amputated is THE WHITE HARE.

The Shining
This one's pretty simple, there's Bugs Bunny on Danny's shirt...

...and a stuffed Bugs Bunny in the Big Wheel.

On a side note: The black thing on the floor is a Golliwog doll.
Creedence Clearwater Revival, also referred to as Creedence and CCR, was an American rock band which recorded and performed from 1968 to 1972. The band initially consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty; his brother, rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty; bassist Stu Cook; and drummer Doug Clifford. These members had played together since 1959, first as the Blue Velvets and later as the Golliwogs.

This shot only happens once in the film.
You'll need to flip it 180° and zoom in. The book title that can barely be made out is John Updike - In The Beauty of the Lilies.

John Updike is best known for his Rabbit series of novels.

The Lookout Mountain Studio was also referred to as the Home of the 1352d Photographic Squadron.

Once again Stanley named one of his production companies 'Hawk Films'.

Image

For Vivian's documentary on The Shining it would be 'Eagle Films'.

Image

The Eagle and the Hawk is a 1933 aerial war film about a photographic squadron.

Image




The general public wasn't aware of the secret studio in Los Angeles until filmmaker Peter Kuran allegedly discovered it in the early 1990's.
He produced a few documentaries such as; Nukes In Space, Atomic Journeys: Welcome to Ground Zero, Atomic Filmmakers: Behind the Scenes and Nuclear Rescue 911: Broken Arrows and Incidents.

This is a clip from his first documentary Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie.
When I first saw it I remember busting out laughing. Just like with Apollo. If it can be simulated, it can be faked.

The physical address for the studio is 8935 Wonderland Avenue. For years I searched for that number and finally found it in Eyes Wide Shut. I won't say where it is just yet. Maybe someone reading this might want to try a little sleuthing of their own and see if they can find it.

Kinda gives new meaning to the choice of music for the end of Dr. Strangelove when we hear Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again.



This is Stanley's brother-in-law Jan Harlan at the grand opening of the Stanley Kubrick Exhibition in Paris.

Image

I know it's over an hours flight from the UK to Paris and you probably brought something to read on the plane.
There's going to be a lot of pictures taken at this event. Why not leave the damn book at the hotel? :rolleyes:

Compare the opening music to The Car 1977 starring James Brolin to the opening music in The Shining.



And what was James Brolin's very next film? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000981/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5



Of all the hotels across America that were photographed by Ray Walker and could be used as the model for the interior of the Overlook, Stanley chose the Ahwahnee Hotel which is located in Yosemite National Park.


I'm not sure if this was intended or not but, I had fun with it anyway. :P

The Ahwahnee HOTEL is located in Yosemite National Park in CALIFORNIA.

This music in The Shining is a song titled 'Home' by Henry Hall and his Gleneagles Hotel Band
