It's hard not to be moved by Milos Foreman's classic One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The film can lead even the most hardened of filmgoers from laughter to tears.

The place in which the actors lived during production didn't help the situation. In fact, all of the actors who played patients in the film lived at the Oregon State Hospital psychiatric ward during the shoot. The men brought personal effects to their sleeping spaces, spent their days inside the ward and regularly interacted with the psychiatric patients there. That's more than a flyover — it's moving right in.
