Billy Wilder | US | 1960 | 125mins | Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, Fred MacMurray.
Exploring the 60s New York office scene way before TV’s Mad Men, Billy Wilder’s follow-up to his smash-hit Some Like It Hot was as critically and commercially successful as its predecessor; winning five Oscars including Best Picture.
Jack Lemmon is at his best as the anxious junior exec in a New York insurance firm who, in order to climb the corporate ladder, allows his managers to use his Upper West Side apartment for their romantic assignations – but runs into trouble when he finds himself sharing a girlfriend, elevator operator Fran (Shirley Maclaine), with callous boss J. D. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray).
