THE APARTMENT [1960] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] Movie-wise, There Has Never Been Anything Like `The Apartment'! Love-wide, Laugh-wise or Other-wise!

Winner of five 1960 Academy Awards® and including Best Picture for `The Apartment' and is by the legendary director Billy Wilder at his most scathing and satirical best. With audio commentary from film producer and AFI member Bruce Block and two documentaries, including a loving tribute to actor Jack Lemmon.

Calvin Clifford (C.C.) "Bud" Baxter [Jack Lemmon] knows the way to success in business...it's through the door of his apartment. By providing a perfect hideaway for philandering bosses, the ambitious young employee reaps a series of undeserved promotions. But when Bud lends the key to big boss J.D. Sheldrake [Fred MacMurray], he not only advances his career, but his own love life as well. For Sheldrake's mistress is the lovely Fran Kubelik [Shirley MacLaine], elevator girl and angel of Bud's dreams. Convinced that he is the only man for Fran, Bud must make the most important executive decision of his career: lose the girl...or his job.

The Apartment(released June/60)stars,among others,Jack Lemmon as C.C.Baxter,Shirley MacLaine as Fran Kubelik,Fred MacMurray as Jeff D. Sheldrake,Ray Walston as Joe Dobisch and Jack Kruschen as Dr. Dreyfuss.These oldies but goodies don't cross my desk too much anymore(the shame),but when they do I dive in for all it's worth.This"oldie but goodie" was nominated for five OSCARS and caught two for best picture and best director.And director Wilder is in top form here throughout,as is his two main stars MacLaine and Lemmon.
The story finds Lemmon working as an accounting clerk in a high rise New York City office building.Lemmon is your everyman,working nine to five,or in this case 8:50 to 4:20.Lemmon is the go-to guy for four of his bosses who have regular on-going trysts.That is,when the bosses need some alone time with their women,Lemmon,a bachelor himself,loans out his place to whoever asks first.It is a long standing thing with Lemmon going back before he even joined the company.It is not above the pale for his temporary guests to ask for a stocked liquor cabinet and food,when needed.Lemmon has even gone so far as to cover up these trysts at his place to his fellow tenants and landlady.Lemmon makes it seem like HE is the Casanova to end all Casanova's.
Now Lemmon may be a soft touch,but he has hopes his"generosity" with his bosses will someday be rewarded.And that day eventually comes.His four bosses` recommendations get the attention of the big boss,played by Fred MacMurray.Now Fred isn't a slouch either,and he knows what is behind all those glowing recommendations by Lemmon's bosses.Just when Lemmon thinks he is in for that promotion,Fred throws Lemmon a curve.If Lemmon plays ball with him he will get that promotion.

By Kona TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 8 2006
Format: DVD
Buddy Baxter (Jack Lemmon) is a meek and mild nobody in an enormous insurance company who has an "arrangement" with his superiors: They can use his apartment to entertain their ladyfriends in exchange for recommendations for his promotion. The deal works out fine, until he discovers that his big boss (Fred MacMurray)'s girlfriend is the object of his own affection, elevator operator Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine).

"The Apartment" is a quiet, character-driven comedy about shady dealings in the world of big business, with just enough touching dramatic scenes to tug at your heart, and it won the 1960 Best Picture Oscar, thanks to the excellent cast and honest script. Nobody played the Everyman character as well as Lemmon. He's involved in an unsavory situation, but is so sweet, likeable, and noble that you really care about him. MacLaine gives an uncharacteristically subdued and thoughtful performance, and MacMurray is perfect as philandering paramour. The beautiful title tune is one of the loveliest movie love themes ever. The subject matter was considered somewhat racy back then, but now it would probably be rated PG. A clever, sweet, and entertaining movie.

Mr. Lemmon figured prominently in a good dozen of the best films ever made, and he is at the absolute top of his game in "The Apartment" as C.C. Baxter - an up and coming business man who makes his way through the corporate ranks faster than usual by making his apartment available to higher executives to carry on affairs without paying for hotel rooms. This is probably a borderline premise for a romantic comedy today, and it must have seemed absolutely scandalous 44 years ago, but the truth is that it is very contemporary in tone today while also being funny, thoughtful and poignant. It's too bad there's noone as clever as Billy Wilder making Romantic Comedies today. Shirley Maclaine has never been better, and anyone who grew up watching Fred MacMurray in "My Three Sons" or any of those Disney films will be surprised to see him playing an absolute scumbag in this movie. The dialogue is witty and sharp and the acting is crisper than a fresh celery stick. This is a good time.
