'The Shining' and Diane Arbus

A scene from Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film "The Shining." Kubrick crossed paths with Diane Arbus during his stint as a photographer for Look magazine. There's an undeniably strong resemblance between the spectral Grady siblings in "The Shining" and those in Arbus' famous photograph, "Identical Twins." Many people say Kubrick was inspired by Arbus' image, but his wife, Christiane, has denied this.
