While it’s well documented that during the filming of 1980’s horror classic The Shining director Stanley Kubrick discouraged the cast and crew from sympathizing with actress Shelley Duvall, what is less well known is that Kubrick also prohibited actor Jack Nicholson from blinking while on set. Kubrick was heard to say “If you want to blink, Jack, you’ll have to do it outdoors. I won’t allow it. I won’t permit it, and it won’t be tolerated.” Nicholson has since referred to it as a brilliant tactic, though he did not mean in the realm of acting.
