presented by Jack Nicholson

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST

Warner Bros., 1976

PRINCIPAL CAST Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher DIRECTOR Milos Forman PRODUCER Saul Zaentz, Michael Douglas SCREENWRITER Bo Goldman, Lawrence Hauben

Jack Nicholson's energetic, funny and ultimately touching performance as Randall P. McMurphy is the force that drives this classic film, an adaptation of Ken Kesey's bestselling 1962 novel. McMurphy is a petty criminal who fakes insanity to serve his time in a mental ward instead of a work farm. Louise Fletcher's Nurse Ratched controls her patients with soothing tones and an iron will that threatens to break McMurphy, and now ranks among American film's greatest villains. The film was the first to win each of the top five Academy Awards since IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT in 1934.
