1975, Royal Albert Hall, London, UK
It’s smashing to have been chosen best actor by the Society this year for my performance in Chinatown. I’d like to thank madam President, and the rest of the members of the Society for this great honour.
I wish that I could be with you there in Albert Hall, but as you people can see I’ve been institutionalized here in Oregon while filming One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, with some friends of mine.
I understand however that Misters Polanski and Towne are with you in the audience this evening, and I’m sure that they will take this opportunity to thank Miss Dunaway themselves, and the rest of the cast and crew of Chinatown for their contributions.
Mr Towne, Mr Polanski, if you would please.
Nurse Ratched: Hello, excuse me for interrupting, but Mr Nicholson has to come with me now.
Thank you. Thank you.
