Red rum in the morning

Doggie take warning!

The Barking!!! Staring Jack Nicholson

Just for you!

Who ever you are!

In The Shining, Stanley Kubrick makes extensive use of number play, employing the same visual mirroring and doubling motif throughout the film. Specifically, there are several repetitions of the numbers 42, 24, 21, and 12.
And why did he change the room number from 217 to 237?

(That’s small step for man, one giant leap for Stanley?)

What was he trying to tell us: anyhow and anyway!?

    1. Yes. DescriptionRed Rum was a champion Thoroughbred steeplechaser. He achieved an unmatched historic treble when he won the Grand National in 1973, 1974 and 1977, and also came second in the two intervening years, 1975 and 1976.

  1. “Legend says that the management of the Timberline requested that Stanley Kubrick not use 217 for a room number (as specified in the book), fearing that nobody would want to stay in that room ever again. Kubrick changed the script to use the nonexistent room number 237.”

    Apparently!
