The Apartment

Jack Lemmon plays a put-upon clerk whose apartment is colonised for illicit trysts by various executives who’ve promised him promotion in exchange for the keys – until an unexpected guest tests the limits of his ambition and causes a tangle of office politics. Sparkling script and wonderful performances from Lemmon and MacLaine create another satirical and sorrowful Wilder classic, just one year after Some Like It Hot.
