The Apartment (1960)



'59 Plymouths appear in all of these film clips. Don't expect to make sense of the story! It's all about the cars. Add your own clip, I'll make an icon for it!

The Apartment (1960)

Post by Faulkner »

IMDb wrote:One of the finest examples of smart, satiric comedy-drama ever created for the screen. Jack Lemmon (in amazing comic form) plays a working stiff in Corporate America--via New York City--whose bachelor apartment inadvertently becomes a love-nest for amorous, married executives. The film is extremely modern for 1960 and features a non-stop barrage of funny, clever talk. Lemmon is a mad genius at frenzied (yet sympathetic) characterization, and "The Apartment" catches him at his professional peak in the movies. Working alongside huggable neurotic Shirley MacLaine (also at her peak) and shady Fred MacMurray (parlaying his slimeball role with curt persuasion), Lemmon creates a new kind of acting: screwball realism.
"If it's new, Plymouth's got it!"
