The top grossing film for this week (September 25th) in 1970 was Five Easy Pieces. Five Easy Pieces was directed by Bob Rafelson and stars Jack Nicholson as Robert Dupea who hides his background as a child prodigy and works in an oil field.
This is the film that really made audiences and Hollywood stand up and take notice of Nicholson. It’s also the movie that features the famed diner scene where Nicholson squares off with a waitress and vainly attempts to have his order served to his liking. Catch the trailer.
