    The Misunderstood Perfection of Shelley Duvall in Kubrick’s The Shining – This Is Horror
    The above is an excellent (IMO) take on Duvall as Wendy from someone who has watched the film many times and used to despise her in the role as Movie Wendy; a different person than King had painted in the book.
    I don't worship the ground Kubrick walked on and I've never seen much of his work, but I know from reading about (him) and his almost obsessive need for perfectionism that casting Duvall (on his part) was not an accident or a mess up. He saw something there that he wanted to portray and I think the author of the article above hits on an important point.
