Director: Roman Polanski
Cast: Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and John Huston

An homage to the 1930s' grim gumshoe films, Chinatown elicited career-defining performances from Nicholson, Dunaway and Huston and immersed moviegoers in a twisted, complex mystery that set the standard for its genre. Watch for the director's cameo as a knife-packing hood.
