Here's the official trailer for the Oscar-award winning film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which cleaned up at the Oscars winning Best Leading Actor, Best Director, Best Picture and Best Leading Actress Louise Fletcher, the notorious Nurse Ratched in 1976. The film is being shown at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 31, at the Cabell County Public Library as part of The Orpheum Project, a 16-mm film series that has been offering free classic movie screenings at the library, 455 9th St., Huntington. "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is Milos Foreman's memorable adaptation of LSD shaman Ken Kesey's psychedelic allegory of expanded consciousness. In the company of Christopher Lloyd and Danny DeVito, Nicholson's established Easy Rider character of marginalized burnout has a few competitors, but the real breakout star is Huntington's native son Brad Dourif, who earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as Billy Bibbit, although he missed the broom in the Oscar sweep of awards in 1976. The film will be shown on the library's fourth floor in the Friend's Story Room. The showing is free and open to the public. Cracker Jacks and water will be available.
