Dr. Jack & Mr. Nicholson

No one can resist his murderous smile. How did this ordinary young man become an icon of counterculture overnight? His sharp eye and bulging forehead give his disarming allure a touch of menace, as if he could come at your throat at any moment with a howl of Machiavellian laughter. In a Hollywood career spanning more than 50 years, Nicholson has conquered everyone and become an archetypal star who lives by his own rules. Eccentric, unpredictable and brilliant: With twelve Oscar nominations, Jack Nicholson holds the acting record, three times he won gold. The portrait follows in the footsteps of the film star with interviews and film clips and searches for the person behind the legend.
