    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest screen used communal bench. (Fantasy Films, 1975) Vintage original oak bench measuring 63.5 in. long x 39.5 in. tall x 25 in. deep. The wooden surfaces of the bench have been expertly studio painted to enhance the light wood grain. The padded bench seat is upholstered in deep burnt orange leather. The back of the bench features a wooden grill of slats between the top rail and cross rail for support. Elongated arms extend beyond the seat. There is a cross beam at the bottom adjoining the spindles that support the 2-legs at each end of the bench. The bottom of the bench and interior is concealed by a stapled/tacked on fabric covering. This bench is highly visible throughout the film in the communal area of the mental institution where McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) and his crew are committed. The cast often congregates on and around this bench. Exhibiting some production wear and a single cigarette burn to the seat upholstery. All the joints are solid and the leather upholstery remains supple. A central set piece from this universally acclaimed, Academy Award winning classic film. In vintage fine condition. Gifted by the film's producer Saul Zaentz to his personal assistant. Comes with an LOA.
