THE APARTMENT
1960, Park Circus/MGM, 125 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

Jack Lemmon ingratiates himself with his corporate colleagues by lending out his apartment for their extramarital affairs - but his promotion plans backfire when he falls head over heels for boss Fred MacMurray’s new gal-pal, Shirley MacLaine. Oscar winner for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay (Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond). "By the time he made THE APARTMENT, Wilder had become a master at a kind of sardonic, satiric comedy that had sadness at its center … the summation of what Wilder had done to date, and the key transition in Lemmon's career. … The valuable element in Wilder is his adult sensibility; his characters can't take flight with formula plots, because they are weighted down with the trials and responsibilities of working for a living. In many movies, the characters hardly even seem to have jobs, but in THE APARTMENT they have to be reminded that they have anything else." – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
