    Shelley Duvall "Wendy Torrance" knife from The Shining. (Warner Bros., 1980) Vintage original Gustav Emil Ern brand butcher's knife with long stainless steel blade and wooden handle with steel rivets. In Stanley Kubrick's harrowing adaptation of Stephen King's seminal classic horror novel, The Shining, this knife, in the hands of a desperate mother is ultimately all that stands between her child and a homicidal madman. In one of the legendary difficult shoots in moviemaking history, Shelly Duvall, as a hysterical "Wendy Torrance" clings to this 15.5 x 1.25 in. knife while her deranged husband, "Jack" (Jack Nicholson) attempts to murder her, most notably while shattering a flimsy bathroom door with an axe. Exhibiting production wear, age and handling. Blade is semi-sharpened. In vintage very good to fine condition. Provenance: Nick Harrison.
