Chinatown (Roman Polanski, 1974, 35mm, 130 mins)

50th anniversary screening! New print! Robert Towne’s Oscar-winning screenplay was written with Jack Nicholson in mind, and he gives one of his most lauded performances as private eye Jake Gittes, a pawn in a labyrinthine Los Angeles case of corruption, false identities, and family secrets. Faye Dunaway and John Huston are equally mesmerizing in this unmissable neo-noir masterpiece. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive. Special thanks to Paramount Pictures Corporation.

The “Treasures from the Yale Film Archive” series is presented with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
