The Apartment
Monday, 25 January 2010

Billy Wilder. USA. 1960. 125 mins. Black & white. Cert PG.

Wilderís double Oscar-winning classic bitter-sweet comedy stars Jack Lemmon as an insurance clerk who rents his apartment out to philandering executives, only to find that the woman of his dreams (Shirley MacLaine) is the bossís bit on the side. Great interplay between Fred McMurray, as the bullying boss, MacLaine and Lemmon, as corruption, adultery and ambition are traded like playing cards.
