Fact: Louise Fletcher had no idea that Nurse Ratchet was the most coveted role in Hollywood until a reporter told her.
Trivia: This was Christopher Lloyd's film debut.
Movie Mistake: When the patients are tossing the cigarette around, the cigarette changes sizes.
My Take: One of few films where it's completely about the performances. The acting in this film was phenomenal and it gave a few careers their start.
