I just wanted to add to my post:
I think Roman Polanski having a cameo, walk-on role as the thug with a knife in Chinatown was paying homage to a great director who is famous not only for his acting and directing movies but also for his cameo "walk-on roles " ( The Treasure of Sierra Madre,The Misfits, Love & Bullets, The last Run, etc. etc.) I'm talking about the late, great, John Huston who happens to play Noah Cross in Polanski's Chinatown.
