Yep.   I could see Angela Lansbury as Ratched,  however.   Not saying she'd have been better than Fletcher,  but it would have been nicely disturbing. 

Wonder how many parody scenes have been done of Chief Bromden yanking out the water taps and tossing it through the window.   I've seen a couple.   

Somehow I knew Fletcher was on Deep Space 9, which means I must have watched a few eps.  Had forgotten them.

I posted the link on FB mentioning the music.

I'd not remembered that that was just the first almost couple minutes of the whole 31-35 minute Strauss piece, however! It always struck me as a finale.
