You sly son of a bitch, Chief. Can you hear me, too?
Well I don't wanna break up the meeting or nothing, but she's something of a cunt, ain't she, Doc?
And the book changed my life
Haven't read it. I'm guessing it's somehow better?
Ohhhh, the book is fantastic.
A must read.
a classic film, jack at his best
I liked it better, yes. Kesey is an extremely vivid and creative dude
One of the most well-deserved Oscar wins EVER. Fletcher absolutely nailed that creepy, controlling "nurse."
Both of her parents were deaf and she thanked them in sign language at the Academy Awards show. Pretty cool.
The book is narrated by The Chief.....It's a different perspective. It is my favorite book.
Jack has never been more brilliant than he was in this movie, agreed. A role he was born to play.
Okay I have to read this now... thanks!
Great movie, yes.
Charles Bronson for the win! Love that badass
I'm tired. This is a lot of baloney.
This is Dr. Cheswick, Dr. Taber, Dr. Frederickson, Dr. Scanlon, the famous Dr. Scanlon, Mr. Harding, Dr. Bibbit, Dr. Martini....
I wanna watch the damn World Series.
"Aren't you ASHAMED, Billy?"
"Nuh-nuh-nuh no, Nurse Ratched...I'm not."
15 Things You Might Not Know About ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’
Lots of good stuff there, not surprisingly including:
2. ONE STUDIO WANTED TO CHANGE THE ENDING.
When producers were shopping the picture to studios, 20th Century Fox was interested, but with a catch. Fox would distribute the film, but only if the filmmakers would agree to rewrite the ending; the studio wanted McMurphy to live. Producers Saul Zaentz and Michael Douglas wisely considered this a deal breaker, and United Artists eventually distributed the film.
Good stuff. "Mac" dying in the end was crucial to the movie, if heartbreaking and vastly disappointing.
The novel was required reading in junior high "Great Books" class, and I recall the teacher saying, "So how do you feel about the Chief murdering McMurphy?"
Her putting it that way has stuck with me to this day!
