Filming the scene where Jack menacingly backs Wendy up the stairs on the Colorado Lounge set of The Shining.
A diagonal dolly track behind them is rigged to roll multiple cameras up the stairs. Kubrick likely shot coverage from this setup, but the only bit of film shot from this vantage point that remains in the finished film is a brief shot where Wendy strikes Jack with the baseball bat.

I guess the grips had their work cutout for them too.
