Hi Kar,

Oh, CHINATOWN is great! It's now on some of those "greatest movies of all time" lists. Although it has a tragic ending, it seems like a nearly perfect movie in every respect. Apparently, the screenwriter, Robert Towne, wrote the script with more of a "Hollywood ending," but Roman Polanski changed it so that "it would have meaning." I won't give any more details, just in case some readers here haven't seen it. I also heard Polanski say that if he were to film the movie today, he didn't think he would be allowed the liberties he was given back in 1974, when it was made. He said that most studios now would insist on a happier, "Hollywood ending."
