United Artists

1975: The drama "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, and directed by Milos Forman, premieres in New York City. The movie would go on to earn nine Oscar nominations and become only the second to win all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay) following "It Happened One Night" in 1934, an accomplishment not repeated until 1991 by "The Silence of the Lambs."
