Bullshit. What woman packs nothing but heels on a trip to go rescue her sister from kidnappers?

Shelley Duvall, for all her screaming and flailing in The Shining, does successfully manage to whack Jack Nicholson with a bat and sending him falling down a staircase. Then she does something smart, which is to drag him to a pantry with a hell of a strong latch on the door. But then she spends several valuable seconds, as he’s coming-to, pulling helplessly on the latch while falling apart because there’s a cotter pin stuck in it. As though women can’t possibly understand such complicated hardware as cotter pins.
