Needling Jack

From the biography of Jack Nicholson I've been reading, Jack: The Great Seducer - The Life and Many Loves of Jack Nicholson by Edward Douglas, I discovered that he and Beatty were neighbors up on Mulholland Drive in Santa Monica.  They were also very close friends, and they competed on many levels.  And women they dated, knew about this need to outdo one another.  In one case, one of Nicholson's lovers left him for Beatty.  And it might have happened the other way around too.   So, this moment at the Oscars, to them, and to others "in the know," had some real sizzle behind it.
