A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder.
Jack Nicholson (Jake Gittes) is present in every scene of the film.
All right, Curly. Enough's enough. You can't eat the Venetian blinds. I just had them installed on Wednesday.
When Gittes takes photos from the rooftop of Mulwray and a young woman, the scene cuts away to a shot in front of Gittes, where his 35mm camera captures Mulwray embracing the woman on the terrace below. However, the image in Gittes's camera should reflect an upside down image of the couple. According to the interview with Roman Polanski on the DVD, he deliberately chose to show the couple right-side up to make it easier for the audience. He also said that "now" (in 1999) he would have shown it as upside down, as it would be in reality.
The film opens with the 1940's Paramount logo.
