Summary Jack Nicholson was at the height of his powers, as compelling a movie star as there has ever been. Director Roman Polanski, both predator and prey, was haunted by the savage death of his wife. "The Kid" Robert Evans, was the most consummate of producers. Robert Towne's fabled script was widely considered the greatest original screenplay ever written. Wasson peels off layers of myth to provide the true account of the creation of the 1974 movie, Chinatown. Looming over it all is the imminent eclipse of the '70s filmmaker-friendly studios as they gave way to the corporate Hollywood we know today. -- adapted from jacket.
