Jack Nicholson teamed up with Roman Polanksi in 1974 for Chinatown – a movie that also starred Faye Dunaway and John Huston.
A private detective investigating an adultery case stumbles on to a scheme of murder that has something to do with water.
There are a handful of great posters for this movie but it’s the classic American version that, I think, is by far the best.
There is a real art deco feel to the design and there is a real throwback feel to the old style detective novels.
But there is just something really arty and classic about this poster – which sets it apart from other artwork of this time.
