    Just re-watched this masterpiece the other day. Fantastically stylish wardrobe. The hats are a nice touch, as well. I found it amusing at one point when he complains about losing "my Florsheim".

    if i recall correctly, jack nicholson's character (can't even remember his name) is meant to be something of a dandy, even for his time. i believe the screenplay describes him as the type of guy who has his shoes shined everyday and his hair trimmed once a week.

    J.J. (or Jake) Gittes.

    Those were the good old days when Florsheim still made decent shoes.

    I love when John Huston's character constantly mispronounces it. Hilarious.
