He is hired by Evelyn Mulwray when she suspects her husband Hollis, builder of the city's water supply system, of having an affair. Gittes does what he does best and photographs him with a young girl but in the ensuing scandal, it seems he was hired by an impersonator and not the real Mrs. Mulwray. When Mr. Mulwray is found dead, Jake is plunged into a complex web of deceit involving murder, incest and municipal corruption all related to the city's water supply.

MORE INFO ON FAYE DUNAWAY: Dorothy Faye Dunaway (born 14 January 1941), known as Faye Dunaway, is an Academy Award-winning American actress. She has starred in a variety of films, from blockbusters such as The Towering Inferno and the camp classic Mommie Dearest, to the most critically acclaimed including Bonnie and Clyde, Chinatown, and Network. She received Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her performances in Bonnie and Clyde and Chinatown, before winning the category with her 1976 performance in Network.

Dunaway was born in

Bascom, Florida, the daughter of Grace April (née Smith), a homemaker, and John MacDowell Dunaway, Jr., a career army officer. She attended the University of Florida, Florida State University, and Boston University, but graduated from the University of Florida in theater. In 1962, Dunaway joined the American National Theater and Academy.

Dunaway appeared on

Broadway in 1962 as the daughter of Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons. Her first screen role was in 1967 in The Happening. In 1967, she was in Hurry Sundown, but that same year, she gained the leading female role in Bonnie and Clyde opposite Warren Beatty, which earned her an Oscar nomination. She also starred in 1968 with Steve McQueen in the caper film The Thomas Crown Affair (and had a small role in the 1999 remake with Pierce Brosnan).

It was in the 1970s that she began to stretch her acting abilities in such films as

Three Days of the Condor, Little Big Man, Chinatown, The Three/Four Musketeers, Eyes of Laura Mars, and Network, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress as the scheming TV executive Diana Christensen.

In the 1980s, although her performances did not waver, the parts grew less compelling. Dunaway would later blame

Mommie Dearest (1981) for ruining her career as a leading lady. Some critics panned the movie, although the film grossed $19 million in its first release and was one of the top 30 grossing films of the year. The film was immediately embraced as a cult classic. "I was too good at [Joan] Crawford," she was often quoted as saying. She played an alcoholic in Barfly (opposite Mickey Rourke). In a later movie, Don Juan DeMarco (1995), Dunaway co-starred with Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando.

Dunaway won an

Emmy for a 1994 role as a murderer in "It's All in the Game," an episode of the long-running mystery series Columbo.

She is a three-time Oscar nominee for Bonnie and Clyde, Chinatown, and Network, winning for the latter. She has won three Golden Globes, including for the television films Ellis Island (1984) and Gia (1998), and has been nominated for a Golden Globe ten times.

In 1996, she toured nationally with the stage play Master Class. The story about opera singer

Maria Callas was very powerful and well received. Dunaway bought the rights to the Terrence McNally play, for possible film development.

In 2006, Dunaway played a character named Lois O'Neill in the sixth season of the popular crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She served as a judge on the 2005 reality show The Starlet, which sought, American Idol-style, to find the next young actress with the potential to become a major star. In the spring of 2007, the direct-to-DVD movie release of Rain, based on the novel by V. C. Andrews and starring Dunaway, was released. In 2009 Dunaway stars in film The Bait by Polish film director and producer Dariusz Zawislak. The Bait is a contemporary version of a drama Balladyna by Polish 19th - century poet Juliusz Slowacki.

Dunaway has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard, which was awarded on October 2, 1996.

Dunaway has been romantically linked to a series of men ranging from the comedian Lenny Bruce to the actor Marcello Mastroianni. She has been married twice, from 1974 to 1979 to Peter Wolf, the lead singer of the rock group The J. Geils Band, and from 1984 to 1987 to Terry O'Neill, a British photographer. She and O'Neill have one child, Liam O'Neill (born 1980). In 2003, despite Dunaway's earlier claims that she had given birth to Liam, Terry revealed that Liam was adopted.

Dunaway is an adult convert to Roman Catholicism.

MORE INFO ON JACK NICHOLSON: John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson (born April 22, 1937) is an

American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter, internationally renowned for his often dark-themed portrayals of neurotic characters.

Nicholson has been nominated for an

Academy Award 12 times, and has won three: two for Best Actor and one for Best Supporting Actor. He is tied with Walter Brennan for most acting wins by a male actor (three), and second to Katharine Hepburn for most acting wins overall (four). He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s; the other is Michael Caine. He has won seven Golden Globe Awards, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. Notable films that he starred in include, in chronological order, Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, Chinatown, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Passenger, The Shining, Terms of Endearment, Batman, A Few Good Men, As Good as It Gets, About Schmidt, Something's Gotta Give, and The Departed.

Nicholson has been nominated for an acting (lead or supporting)

Academy Award in five different decades: 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. The only other actors who can say the same are Michael Caine and Paul Newman. With 12 nominations thus far (8 for Best Actor and 4 for Best Supporting Actor), Jack Nicholson is the most nominated male actor in Academy Awards history. With three Oscar wins, he also ties with Walter Brennan for the 2nd highest number of Oscar wins in acting categories (all of Brennan's wins were for Best Supporting Actor).

At the

79th Academy Awards, Nicholson had fully shaved his hair for his role in The Bucket List. Those ceremonies represented the seventh time he has presented the Academy Award for Best Picture (1972, 1977, 1978, 1990, 1993, 2006, and 2007).

Nicholson is an active and voting member of the Academy. He had attended every ceremony, nominated or not, from 1990 to 2008. At the 2005 ceremony it was visible that he was disappointed as he read the envelope for Best Picture for Crash. It was later revealed that he had voted for Brokeback Mountain to win. He can be seen mouthing "what happened?" When he presented the nominee Good Night, and Good Luck, he jokingly began to walk away as if he had given a farewell.
