One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest- Original Movie Poster
"ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST" ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER. ONE OF HOLLYWOOD'S GREAT ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT DRAMAS OF THE 70'S DIRECTED BY MILOS FORMAN AND STARRING JACK NICHOLSON AS RANDEL MCMURPHY. THE MOVIE WAS THE SECOND FILM TO EVER WIN ALL THE TOP 5 ACADEMY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, NICHOLSON'S BEST ACTOR, LOUISE FLETCHER BEST ACTRESS FOR ONE OF HOLLYWOOD'S GREATEST VILLANS NURSE RATCHED, DIRECTOR FORMAN, AND SCREENPLAY (HAUBEN AND GOLDMAN). THE FIRST FILM TO DO SO WAS "IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT" IN 1934. IT WOULD HAPPEN AGAIN IN 1991 WITH"SILENCE OF THE LAMBS". THOUGH THE ORIGINAL BOOK WAS WRITTEN BY KEN KESEY IN 1962, HE BACKED OUT OF THE FILM PRODUCTION OVER "CREATIVE DIFFERENCES" AND CASTING... NAMELY LOUISE FLETCHER'S RATCHED WHO KESEY ORIGINALLY WROTE AS A HUGE BREASTED UPTIGHT RAGING BULL DYKE WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANTLY AND DRAMATICALLY THE MAJOR FACTOR INTO WHY MCMURPHY IS LOBOTOMIZED. YOU WILL HAVE TO READ THE NOVEL OR SEE THE PLAY. HE FILED SUIT AND WAS AWARDED A SETTLEMENT. HE ALSO CLAIMED HE NEVER SAW THE MOVIE AND HATED WHAT HE HEARD ABOUT IT. AND YES, IT WAS ORIGINALLY DRAMATIZED AS A PLAY BY DALE WASSERMAN ("MAN OF LA MANCHA") AND OPENED ON BROADWAY FOR A DISMAL 82 PERFORMANCES IN 1963 AND STARRED KIRK DOUGLAS AS MCMURPHY. YEARS LATER, AFTER BEING UNABLE TO GET THE MOVIE PRODUCED, HE GAVE THE RIGHTS TO HIS SON MICHAEL DOUGLAS, WHO EVENTUALLY COPRODUCED THE OSCAR WINNING MOVIE. BUT KIRK WAS DEEMED TOO OLD TO PLAY THE ROLE SO IT WENT TO NICHOLSON. THE POSTER MEASURES 27 X 41 AND IS FOLDED AS WAS THE CUSTOM AT THE TIME. IT SHOWS SOME SIGNS OF USE SUCH AS FOLD SEPERATION AND EDGE WEAR, SMALL CREASES, AND PINHOLES.. HOWEVER, IT IS IN FINE/VERY FINE CONDITION. GREAT ICONIC IMAGE OF JACK NICHOLSON AT HIS ALMOST CRAZY BEST AND FOR COLLECTOR'S OF CLASSIC ACADEMY AWARD WINNING MOVIE POSTERS! WELL I DON'T WANNA BREAK UP THE MEETING OR NOTHIN', BUT SHE'S SOMETHIN' OF A CUNT, AIN'T SHE DOC?
