‘You’ll simply fall about with laughter’
C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) rents out his apartment to executives for their extramarital trysts in the faint hope of a promotion. Eventually his boss (Fred MacMurray) finds out and demands the key for his own affairs.
Meanwhile Baxter has a crush on Miss Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine) the elevator operator. Problems ensue when he can’t use his own apartment.
This film is director Billy Wilder’s greatest accomplishment. It is his most successful melding of comedy and drama, winning Oscars for Best Picture/Director/Original Screenplay and becoming a much-loved classic since it was made in 1960. Fabulous cinematography and acting. Not to be missed.
Cert PG duration 125 mins
