Jack Nicholson cannot help but steal a movie. His presence is simultaneously relatable, aspirational and challenging and his performances are almost always unique, emotional, and—in most cases—inimitable. Who but Nicholson could have played Randle “Mac” McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? Who else could have so successfully seduced The Witches of Eastwick? He was perfection as the Joker in Batman. He simply is Col. Nathan Jessup in A Few Good Men. So many moments, characters, and movies through the years simply revolve around him. His career traces the modern evolution of the Hollywood era—making him a living legend with more than six decades of proof, and vivid memories that everyone still enjoys whenever he appears on screen.
