One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the classic 1975 Milos Forman (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) mental institution black comedy ("In this clean, orderly, disciplined world, who needs a guy like McMurphy? Everybody."; "Based on the novel by Ken Kesey"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award; about a man in a mental institution and one of the only cases where a great novel was made into an equally great movie, and they changed it around, to boot!) starring Jack Nicholson (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Randall P. McMurphy), Louise Fletcher (winner of the Best Actress Academy Award for this film; as Nurse Ratched), William Redfield (as Mr. Harding), Danny De Vito (as Martini; in his fifth movie role!), Christopher Lloyd (as Taber; in his very first movie role!), Scatman Crothers (as Turkle), Will Sampson (as Chief Bromden), Brad Dourif (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; as Billy Bibbit), Sydney Lassick (as Charley Cheswick), Vincent Schiavelli (as Fredrickson), William Duell (as Sefelt), Josip Elic (as Bancini), Mews Small (billed as "Marya Small"; as Candy), Michael Berryman (as Ellis), Delos V. Smith Jr. (as Scanlon), and Dr. Dean R. Brooks (as Dr. John Spivey). Note that this was the first time in 42 years that one movie won the four top Academy Awards! Also note that the movie was filmed at the real Oregon State Hospital (a psychiatric facility), and that Dr. Brooks (who played Dr. Spivey) was the real head of the hospital!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: fine. There are a few light creases in the poster that aren't particularly distracting.. Note that this poster has never been folded! Most half-sheet posters were folded twice (once horizontally and once vertically) right off of the printing press. It is very difficult to find an unfolded copy of most half-sheets, especially from before 1970!
