Robert Towne won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, but what most don’t realize is that the original script for Chinatown was over 300 pages long. That would have made quite the shooting schedule.

Roman Polanski‘s enduring noir classic is headed to Blu-ray soon which means seeing J.J. Gittes getting his nose cut in high definition.

Plus, we’re giving a copy away, and the one we have has Robert Towne’s signature on it (thanks to the intrepid team at Dolby Labs who secured it legally). If you’re into that sort of thing. So how do you get your hands on it? Glad I made it seem like you asked.

One (1) winner chosen at random will get the autographed Blu-ray, and all you have to do to enter is let us know your favorite moment from the film (or why you’d love to see if if you haven’t yet) in the comments section.

Easy? Yes. So get to it. It’s Chinatown.
