Digging down into the bottom shelf of book case # 3 for my treasured #rossmacdonald paperbacks from the 60s & 70s. Featuring private detective #lewarcher , McDonald's books pretty much were a huge change in crime fiction, telling not so much "who done it" stories, but asking "why ?" . Gone is the hard boiled, ham fisted private eye with a dame on each arm. Archer investigated cases of broken people with sad, tragic reasons for doing what they did. More often than not, his clients would find their ghosts of the past would always haunt them. 💀
I've put #chinatown #bluray right beside these books because the film is heavily influenced by MacDonald's stories, and it's a good way to introduce someone to a brilliant novel like #thedoomsters or #thegaltoncase . 📓📑

From concept to celluloid! Today's post features the light gray gabardine double-breasted three-piece suit worn by Jack Nicholson in Chinatown (1974) as private eye J.J. Gittes swaggers through 1937 Los Angeles.
The post includes an original sketch by Chinatown costume designer Anthea Sylbert as well as a look at the pale pink contrast-collar shirt, glen plaid tie, brown suede brogues, and gray fedora that Nicholson wears on screen. Check it out (link in bio!)

#Chinatown is an undisputed masterpiece. I still remember how floored I was the first time I saw it. #TheTwoJakes is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. I know it doesn't hold a candle to its predecessor but #JackNicholson as an older, wearier #JJGittes is still worth watching. Plus #HarveyKeitel and the late, great #RichardFarnsworth. Hey @netflix how about funding the long dreamt of third #picture in the proposed trilogy?! #RobertTowne #filmlife #filmbuff #DVD #RomanPolanski #director #screenwriting
Chinatown was incredible to see @dukeofyorks this morning. Lovely to see one of my favorite films on the big screen. Lt. Escobar: How'd you get past the guard?
Jake Gittes: Well, to tell you the truth, I lied a little. #chinatownfilm #chinatownmovie #chinatown #jjgittes #jakegittes #dukeofyorkscinema #dukeofyorks #cultfilm #cultfilms #cultmovie #cultmovies #screenplay #screenplays #script #scripts #cinema #cinemas #losangeles #brighton @picturehouses

#chinatownmovie #jjgittes #fayedunaway #johnhustonfilm---This clip was shot at the Ambassador Inn Alhambra, CA. A few weeks later office clerk Xiuxia "Michelle" Chen, 45, was shot and killed in an "attempted robbery". The killer remains at large. She was a lovely woman who will be missed by all who stayed at the Ambassador and were blessed to meet her. May she rest in peace...
