In Vivian Kubrick’s documentary on the making of The Shining, several crew members can be seen wearing a black sweater with “The Shining" in red letters, and a white hawk hovering above the text. The hawk is a nod to Kubrick’s production company, "Hawk Films Ltd."

These custom sweaters were given as gifts by actor Jack Nicholson to everyone on the crew during the production.

Back out the tomb, bitch /
Black out the room, bitch
