The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.

Catalogue Note

This American film was directed by Milos Forman, and stars Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Will Sampson and Danny DeVito. It was based on Ken Kesey's 1962 novel of the same name. It was filmed in Oregon, partly in the Oregon State Hospital, which was the location Kesey had used in his novel for the mental hospital. The film was the second to win all five major Academy Awards - Best Picture, Actor in a Lead Role, Actress in a Lead Role, Director and Screenplay. This feat had not been achieved since It Happened One Night forty-one years earlier, and didn't happen again until The Silence of the Lambs in 1991.
