Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine star in this acclaimed satire from writer-director Billy Wilder. Insurance clerk C.C. Baxter (Lemmon) lets his superiors use his apartment as a secret love nest and as a result begins to make his way up in the company.
Things go awry when director Mr. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray) wants to use the apartment for a rendezvous with Fran Kubelik (MacLaine), an elevator operator whom the young clerk already holds a candle for. The film won five Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
