Chinatown Oscar Decoration
Despite liking the screenplay for Chinatown, and having a potent desire to labor with Jack Nicholson, director Roman Polanski was reluctant to return to Los Angeles (from Rome), where four years earlier his wife, Sharon Tate, had been murdered by members of the Mansion Family.
Roman Polanski and Faye Dunaway clashed from the very beginning of the production. Reportedly, the actress threw a cup of urine on the director when he refused to let her take a bathroom leave throughout filming. Looking back on the upshot of making Chinatown, Dunaway has said that Polanski’s treatment of her bordered on sexual harassment. Polanski recalls Dunaway as “a enormous pain in the ass.”
Screenwriter Robert Towne and director Roman Polanski worked on the script jointly for two months. They argued about everything from minor details to important events. Towne’s was in favor of a glad ending to Chinatown where Faye Dunaway’s badge (Evelyn) survived and killed her father (Noah Cross, played by John Huston). Nevertheless Polanski was adamant that Dunaway had to die in the end if the show was to have any meaning. While Towne resisted at the time, years later he admitted that Polanski had made the right decision.
