Ditto, LL, I second that emotion. Chinatown would be nothing without Faye. She plays the "mysterious woman" so well. Her performance in Chinatown reminds me of Kim Novak's performance in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. I dunno, both Chinatown and Vertigo were filmed in SanFrancisco, so maybe the ambience of SF has something to do with it.. hmmmm, i dunno..
