Jack Nicholson stars as a smart-mouthed private eye hired to spy on a lady's ultra-rich husband in the 1930's. Thinking that this is a super-easy job, he finishes it quickly but soon discovers that he's into more than he bargained for. A tremendous, interesting and plot-filled movie that is so wonderfully written and performed that it has earned its place among the greatest films ever made. Jack Nicholson's performance is flawless; Faye Dunaway is superb as well. Pay attention! The plot is excellent but complex and you won't get it if you fall asleep!
