Welcome to The B-Side, from The Film Stage. Here we talk about movie stars and not the movies that made them famous or kept them famous, but the ones they made in between.
Today we tackle legend Jack Nicholson, a movie star who has got enough B-Sides to warrant a handful of episodes. We bring back one of our favorite guests to do the job: Katherine Clark Gray, playwright & screenwriter for Uncompromised Creative as well as podcast writer for “Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman”.
The films we cover today include: The Two Jakes, Man Trouble, The Evening Star, The Pledge and How Do You Know. We discuss Jack Nicholson and Robert Towne’s failed hopes for a third Chinatown movie, the insane amount of money Jack was paid for How Do You Know and why his performance in The Pledge is one of the best he’s ever given.
