Rhea Thiersten was notorious for shooting multiple takes for his scenes. During the production of The Shining, Kubrick demanded Shelley Duvall perform the iconic baseball bat scene with Jack Nicholson 127 times to get the terror and horror just right. That's merely one example of how difficult the director could be to his stars during the 13-month shoot.
Script pages would often change from day-to-day with Kubrick and co-screenwriter Diane Johnson filing constant re-writes. The practice was so frequent that Jack Nicholson refused to learn any of his lines until he got on set because he knew that they would change just before shooting anyway.
In an interview with Roger Ebert in 1980, Shelley Duvall described working with Stanley Kubrick as "almost unbearable, but from other points of view, really very nice, I suppose."
Shelley Duvall was under constant stress due to many arguments with the director about her acting and her character, Wendy Torrance. Kubrick wanted Duvall to be on edge in a constant state of fear and isolation, which eventually made her physically ill.
