Director Roman Polanski creates a magnificently seedy atmosphere in his finest, noirest hour. Hired to investigate a case of adultery, LA private eye Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) sticks his nose rather too far into a plot involving mismanagement of state water supplies, deception, murder... and worse. With Faye Dunaway on fine fatale form as the suspicious wife and Hollywood legend John Huston as her devious father, we're all set for a salacious ride. Robert Towne's Oscar-winning script draws everyone into its intricate web before delivering its killer blow with a shocking revelation.
