July 25, 2016 By Sam Witt Go Back

This summer, Hollywood Suite is celebrating the most iconic movies of the last four decades with FLASHBACKHere on the Hollywood Suite post blog, we’ll be taking a deeper look at some of those films: discussing how they were made, exploring their cultural and historic context, and sharing trivia, videos, pictures and memories from some of the best movies ever made.

A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption and murder. Chinatown’s director appeared in the film – adding to a tradition of directors’ cameos in their own work. Want to see who else did double duty on and off-camera?
