Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown...
Scenes from Roman Polanski's classic film, Chinatown
About this creation
Here are a few characters and scenes from Roman Polanski's iconic 1974 neo-noir classic, Chinatown, recreated with mini-figs. You can compare the black and white photo with the one on imdb's site for Chinatown; I thought it turned out pretty well!

Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) spends a large part of the film with his nose bandaged; here his mini-fig replacement sports a similar bandage as he hangs out in busy 1930s Chinatown.

Here's a color version of the scene with Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) as she threatens to shoot Noah Cross (John Huston). FYI for you kids, the movie itself is actually in color, but many of the famous stills from the film are B&W.

Ah yes, back when Jack Nicholson would reliably ACT, with some range, and not just play Jack.

So that's what you wanted the female minifigs for. See, my mind was going somewhere completely different. Never mind. Oh Hey, Jack N. looks familiar... It's Joe Fullerschmidt! (check my page for an explanation on that one). Really nice build Jen! Can't wait to see what's next. ~ Chris.
