The 1974 film “Chinatown” starred Jack Nicholson.

One of the biggest reveals of the story is that Co-Star Dunaway’s character was raped by her father and gave birth to a daughter, and then the child was raised as her sister.

Here is where it gets strange for Jack Nicholson:

Shortly after Chinatown’s release, Time magazine discovered that Jack Nicholson’s parents were actually his grandparents, and the woman he thought was his older sister was actually his biological mother (not due to incest). At the time Nicholson didn’t know any of this and was notified by the person doing the research. Nicholson was born in 1937, a time when it was not socially acceptable for an unmarried 16-year-old teen to walk in public with a baby. So the family covered the whole thing up by claiming the baby belonged to the girl’s mother.

Here is where the movie gets even more perverted:

Spoiler Alert: …….. The movie ends with Dunaway killed and then the creepy child molester dad takes possession of his inbred offspring for an even more taboo level of incest.

The world is both strange and twisted

  2. Don’t like the sounds of the movie – meaning the end of it. It is strange how he acted in a movie about that, and then discovered it had happened to him.
    Though, I actually have a cousin on my father’s side who had an out-of-wedlock child, so the child was raised as her sister and believed her actual grandparents were her parents.

  4. I’ve never seen that movie and have no interest, now.

    Not surprised about his situation. Societal values were very strict back then. I was an accident in 1966 and my mother was embarrassed. They married but, it didn’t last past 12 years.

  5. People were so shameful back in the day. Well, people were either wild in private or super closeted in public. But when a “scandal” happened, the thing to do was hide it- especially if it was a child out of wedlock.

    The only thing about hiding children out of wedlock or offspring as a product of extramarital affairs and the like is one day those children will date. And who could they potentially hookup with? Just sayin’ too many stories of I married my half sibling because families want to conceal than to make known so this sort of thing doesnt happen.

    I remember listening to a radio show years ago and a woman letter writer found out her husband of 15 years was really her half brother. They had children and everything. They were devastated!
