From Amazon.co.uk

Roman Polanski's brooding film noir exposes the darkest side of the land of sunshine, the Los Angeles of the 1930s, where power is the only currency--and the only real thing worth buying. Jack Nicholson is JJ Gittes, a private eye in the Chandler mould, who during a routine straying-spouse investigation finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into a jigsaw puzzle of clues and corruption. The glamorous Evelyn Mulwray (a dazzling Faye Dunaway) and her titanic father, Noah Cross (John Huston), are at the black-hole centre of this tale of treachery, incest, and political bribery. The crackling, hard-bitten script by Robert Towne won a well-deserved Oscar, and the muted colour cinematography makes the goings-on seem both bleak and impossibly vibrant. Polanski himself has a brief, memorable cameo as the thug who tangles with Nicholson's nose. One of the greatest, most completely satisfying crime films of all time. --Anne Hurley, Amazon.com

Product Description

In 1937, a Los Angeles private detective takes on a simple case and burrows into it until it leads to murder and public scandal. The winner of an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

From the Back Cover

A landmark movie in the film noir tradition, Roman Polanski's Chinatown stands as a true screen classic. Jack Nicholson is private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California. Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband's extra marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadlt deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together for one, unforgettable night in...Chinatown.
Co-starring filmlegend John Huston and featuring an Academy Award winning script by Robert Towne, Chinatown captures a lost era in a masterfully woven movie that remains a timeless gem.
