The axe used by Jack Nicholson’s character to chop down the door in Stanley Kubrick’s film “The Shining” is up for sale at auction in the USA. This was reported on Monday by the TMZ portal with reference to the auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll.
According to the auction organizer, the props are in good condition and will be presented to buyers in a special frame along with footage from the film. The auction will begin on April 20. The auction house plans to get at least $100 thousand for the axe. The episode in which the hero, having broken through the door with an axe, sticks his head through the crack and utters the phrase “Here’s Johnny!” has long become legendary and is actively quoted in popular culture.
The axe has already been put up for auction in London in 2019. Then the artifact went under the hammer for $ 200 thousand. “The Shining” is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Stephen King. The main roles in Kubrick’s film were played by Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Danny Lloyd.
