Roman Polanski’s classic private-eye mystery stars Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway.
Dir Roman Polanski
With Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston
Polanski’s classic private-eye mystery is rightly famous for its script, the performances of its stars, its final line and more besides; its evocative recreation of life in early 30s LA – a sunlit paradise with a festering dark core – remains a major factor in its appeal. The lavish production design and elegant costumes, were, respectively, by the great Richard and Anthea Sylbert.
