“You see, Mr. Gitts, most people never have to face the fact that, at the right time and the right place, they’re capable of…anything!” I’m posting this because Paramount Home Video’s Chinatown Bluray streets on 4.3, or two and a half weeks from now. I’ve never fully savored the subtler aspects of John Alonzo‘s widescreen cinematography, but I will soon.

Note: The spelling of the last name of Jack Nicholson‘s character is “Gittes,” but John Huston pronounces it “Gitts” all through the film.
