I’m returning to “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”. A great book and an even better film, now a classic. I had theorized that Billy Bibbit played by Brad Dourif was Ron Howard. Not from a point of narcissism but simply statistics, if I go looking for someone specific to be Ron I’m correct over 90% of the time. I’ve gone to look for Billy Bibbit twice as Ron. I think I’m close enough to call it a match. Ron is a mass of scars from head to toe. A couple in particular are easy to spot. The one visible here, but you have to look, is on the left shoulder. The skin flap coming up from the back is easiest to spot. This is likely to be Ron. Nurse Ratched could be Cheryl, I need to work on this and I’d have to see the film again because I believe she plays Candy who’s a loving woman who sleeps with Billy. If anyone is going to sleep with Ron in a film it’s Cheryl. See below
Many in the cast of “Taxi” were in “Cuckoo’s Nest”. Danny Devito, Christopher Lloyd, Vincent Schiavelli. That’s Jack Nicholson in the front, I don’t believe he was on Taxi. Notice the man to the left of Jack. I don’t believe it’s Robin Williams but it sure looks like him. It’s important to remember details like this because this could be a relative or they could have aged him up. How do we figure this out? The man in the photo some decent scarring of his right arm in the antecubital fossa (ha ha big words go look them up). Here’s a photo of Williams, also a bunch of scars but it seems everyone in H-wood has them. You have to memorize everyone’s scars and see what matches. Conclusion…none yet…something to pay attention to.
