In his initial scenes he seems fairly normal but there are dark menacing undertones that make us feel early on that Jake may be in way over his head, but by the end we realise he is one of the most evil and unlikable villains in film history.
The scene where Roman Polanski slits Jack Nicholson's nose was extremely complex to film, and the two men involved got so tired of explaining how it was done (by using a specially-constructed knife with a short hinge that would be safe as long as it was handled VERY carefully) that they began to claim Nicholson's nose was actually cut.
Luckily for film noir buffs, the 1980s & 1990s brought a new fresh style to film noir that no longer was emulating what had been done before.
