              <p>40 years ago tonight, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST had its world premiere at the Granada Theatre; presented by the Chicago International Film Festival. I wasn’t there but I heard the house was rocking. A packed auditorium in a giant 3400-seat North Side movie palace, Irv Kupcinet appeared on stage and introduced Jack Nicholson to the audience. Milos Forman was there as well. The audience loved the movie. This movie would go on to box-office success and 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1975. It is a 1970s classic. I wish I was at the Granada Theatre on that historic night. It must have been epic.</p>
