Starring Jack Lemmon:

the film combines all or most of the finer elements of pure film-making.

- Impeccable acting

- great camera work

- real, true-to-life plot

- excellent script

- some humor (and not forced either)

- nice pace

among other things.

The film is about alcoholism and the tragic effect it has and can have on people.

After watching it (TCM last night) I felt I didn't know HOW in the world

Jack Lemmon did not win the Academy Award (he was a nominee for that year).

Then I found out he lost out to Gregory Peck (To Kill A Mockingbird). So that explained that.

But even so, I think Lemmon was better than Peck was in TKAM.

I know I'll get blasted for bringing up this movie that some of you new-age 2010 guys can't relate to. Well go on ahead.

Like I said, this is for the few people who can appreciate filmaking as a fine art.

Thank you!

Joe
