NEW SHORT DOCUMENTARY: “The Doctor in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”

Posted on by Admin in Documentaries | Comments Off


Joe Pantoliano interviews Dr. Dean Brooks, the former Superintendent of the Oregon State Hospital from 1955 to 1981. Brooks participated in the film One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest when the producers cast him as Dr. Spivey and shot the film at the hospital in Salem, Oregon during the mid-1970′s. Brooks talks about how he started in psychiatry, became involved with the film, and what he learned about acting from Jack Nicholson.

No Kidding? Me Too! (NKM2), founded by Joe Pantoliano, is a non-profit organization who’s main purpose is to stomp the stigma that surrounds brain disease.
