Reading the interviews about the deleted scene here; Link

I note with a smirk how Overlook Hotel manager Ullman visits Wendy and Danny at the hospital, wearing an absurdly large brown fur coat. It suggests that he is the ghost in the bear costume with one of the guests in that one scene. Perhaps he gets to leave the hotel on furlough if he finds a caretaker? I wonder if the ball indicates that Danny is going to be caretaker one day? Perhaps even the replacement manager? Isn't it the manager's obligation to provide guests with whatever they want? Poor Danny!

nebulou5: how could it have been open to host such a lavish new years party for the picture to be taken in the first place...so many years before?

Food for thought...


the picture says July 4th Ball 1921, not new years.

I'm not sure how accurate I am with this since I haven't read the book in about 7 years or seen the movie in five but I recall there being a countdown at some point in one or both. In the novel the party takes place in August at the Overlook's grand opening. This isn't the first time I've heard someone think it was a New Year's Eve party and I think the countdown may be why.
