One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest ranked # 20 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a 1975 film directed by Milos Forman. The film is an adaption of the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey.
The movie was the first movie to win all five major Academy Awards since It Happened One Night in 1934. This accomplishment was not repeated until the early 1990s, with The Silence of the Lambs.
The role of domineering Nurse Ratched was turned down by five actresses - Anne Bancroft, Colleen Dewhurst, Geraldine Page, Ellen Burstyn, and Angela Lansbury - until Louise Fletcher accepted casting (in her debut film) only a week before filming began. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress.
