Jack Nicholson BAFTA Acceptance Speech

In 1975, Jack Nicholson won a BAFTA award for Leading Actor for the film Chinatown. At the time, he was busy filming another movie called One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. So he recorded an acceptance with the help of the cast. This didn't mean much of anything to anyone at the time, because we hadn't yet seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It took on a different meaning afterward. (via reddit)

"...among the *girls* in our profession..." sounds quite shocking by today's standards.
