WINTER WILDER LAND
Double Feature!
THE APARTMENT / ONE, TWO, THREE
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
