CAMERA TRACKS BACK before them.

            It's amazing how much activity is
            going on today.

                         ULLMAN
            Yes, well the guests and some of
            the staff left yesterday, but the
            last day is always very hectic -
            everybody wants to be on their way
            as early as possible.

They turn corner and walk away along corridor.

                         ULLMAN
            By five o'clock tonight, you'll
            never know anybody was ever here.

                         WENDY
            Just like a ghost ship, huh?

                         ULLMAN
            Yes.

                         HALLORAN
            I can remember when I was a little
            boy, my grandmother and I could
            hold conversations entirely without
            ever opening our mouths.  She
            called it shining,

            and for a long time I thought it
            was just the two of us that had the
            shine to us.

            Just like you probably thought you
            was the only one.  But there are
            other folks, though mostly they
            don't know it, or don't believe it.

            shows me things but when I wake up,
            I can't remember everything.

            Mr. Halloran, are you scared of

M.S. Shooting across table onto HALLORAN & DANNY.

                         HALLORAN
            No, I'm scared of nothing here.
            It's just that you know some places
            are like people, some shine and
            some don't.  I guess you could say
            the Overlook Hotel here has
            something about it that's like
            shining.
                         DANNY
            Is there something bad here?

M.C.S. HALLORAN.

                         HALLORAN
            Well, you know Doc, when something
            happens it can leave a trace of
            itself behind... say like is
            someone burns toast.

                         HALLORAN (OFF)
            Well, maybe things that happened...
            leave other kinds of traces behind.

                                            CUT TO:



M.C.S. HALLORAN

                         HALLORAN
            Not things that anyone can notice,
            but things that people who shine
            can see.  Just like they can see
            things that haven't happened yet.
            Well, sometimes they can see things
            that happened a long time ago... I
            think a lot of things happened
            right here in this particular
            hotel - over the years, and not all
            of them was good.

            Nothing.  There ain't nothing in
            Room 237, but you ain't got no
            business going in there anyway, so
            stay out!  You understand, stay out!
