    A Jack Nicholson Period Jacket from "Chinatown." Paramount, 1974. Made of wool in a grayish-blue and peach-colored plaid, single-breasted, two button front closure, three large frontal pockets, back has unique pleat and attached self-belt, lined in teal-colored satin, Western Costume Co. label reads "No. 2435-I / Jack Nicholson / Chest 41 1/2 / Sleeve 16 1/2;" worn by the star as he portrayed "J.J. Gittes," the role that garnered him an Academy Award nomination for 'Best Actor in a Leading Role,' though he had stiff competition that year -- Albert Finney for "Murder on the Orient Express," Dustin Hoffman for "Lenny," Al Pacino for "The Godfather: Part II," and finally Art Carney who won for "Harry and Tonto." (Please note the front of this jacket was considerably altered for a later use: the lapels were narrowed, a front closure button was removed, frontal pockets were added, and the sleeves were shortened, but the "bones" of it are still intact -- and the back still looks the same as when Nicholson wore it.)

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
