“Forget it, Jake it's Chinatown!”
The most memorable sign-off ever, right? Wrong.
Roman Polanski’s peerless gumshoe mystery actually ends with a testy cop ordering rubberneckers to “get off the street”.
Fortunately that’s one of the few unremarkable lines in Robert Towne’s script, a magnificent dissection of corruption boasting career-best turns from Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and John Huston.
A hurrah too for the ensemble, the likes of Burt Young and weak link in this 1974 masterpiece.
