1. Glass partition framed in shot-zoom into ECU of dancers’ bodies as they move into frame-partition now out of focus
2. WS-bar in BG, Charlie in MG and patrons in FG-camera tracks right, following Charlie’s movement
3. Camera stops-Charlie walks to FG from right screen to left screen-goes from a MFS to MCS
4. Cut to ECU of dancer’s torso-camera pans up-ECU of her face
5. CS of Charlie’s back and WS of room-creating POV and giving us idea of surroundings-camera tracks behind him as he moves through the bar-he stays centered in the middle of the shot
6. Camera stops-Charlie doesn’t, he moves farther from the camera and gets onstage with dancers-FS 3-shot
Begins with a wide shot of the red lighted club; patrons are in the foreground, Charlie in the middle ground, and the bar is in the background. The camera is shooting Charlie’s right side as he walks, tracking alongside him. In the same shot, he turns and walks towards the camera, almost making it off screen before it cuts to the glittery torso of one of the dancers and pans up her body, showing her face. It then cuts to the beginning of a long tracking shot wherein the camera follows Charlie through the club as he dances, his back in the middle of the frame. Charlie dances and greets people before getting up on stage with the dancers, leaving the camera filming them all from the floor.
Lemon Grove Scene
The scene begins framing a “Farm Land Sold” sign. The camera pans to the right, framing Nicholson looking at the sign. He walks a bit to the right, the camera tracking behind him, giving us an over the shoulder POV of the dry valley. He turns and walks to his vehicle, the camera pans right to keep him in frame. He begins to get into the car and the camera cuts to continue the action from the front. There is another cut and this time the camera is in the back seat of Nicholson’s now moving car, again giving us an over the shoulder shot, showing his head and back as well as letting us see what he is seeing. Nicholson stops the car and turns his head left to look at a “no trespassing” sign. The camera pans left as he turns his head, following his gaze. It then cuts to a wide shot of the lemon grove and Nicholson’s car moving down the dirt pathway slowly. There is another cut to a profile of Nicholson in his car as it comes to a complete stop. He turns to look behind him, turning his head back forward just as some lemons on the bush next to his head are shot. He flinches and there is a cut to a wide view of the grove again, this time with a shotgun wielding man on a horse riding towards the camera. It cuts back to an over the shoulder of Nicholson from the backseat of the car as another shot is fired. He accelerates and turns the car down a narrow path in the grove. He continues down this path until another man on a horse appears in his way, whereupon he reverses, turning to look behind him, facing the camera. It cuts to another wide shot, showing his emergence from the narrow pathway and his entrance into another. As he pulls into this new path there is a cut to one of the men on the horses and then back to Nicholson roaring through the grove as well as a flock of geese. The camera pans to follow the car’s movements until the men on horses appear in its path. The camera stays shooting the same spot while Nicholson once again attempts to reverse and escape in a very dusty shot. One of the men fires a shot in Nicholson’s direction and there is a cut to show us the front of the car being struck. Nicholson turns away in a different direction and the camera pans to follow. The camera cuts to another shot of one of the men firing their gun and then to a shot of Nicholson’s tire being struck. Finally there is a cut showing his car hitting a tree. The camera in this shot is placed so that the car is coming from the right side of the screen at an angle.
