One of my favorite films is "The Apartment" with the adorable Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine.
Jack works here.
And this is how he feels about it.
He wants to get higher in the company so he lets all the execs use his apartment for some hanky panky with their mistresses. Jack hates this because on most nights he has to sleep outside but he can't say no.
Then he meets Fran (Shirley) the cute elevator gal and is smitten.
He wants her but little does he know Fran is playing doctor with his boss at his apartment! Jack finally gets that promotion but is sad when he learns through a left behind item that Fran is a mistress.
Fran is bummed because the boss (Fred MacMurray) doesn't want her for keeps and in the apartment she decides to off herself. She takes some pills and gets in bed to die.
Jack comes home and finds her and with his neighbor's help they save her and nurse her back to health. Jack realizes she has issues but still is crazy about her. Fran is just depressed.
The coat in this famous scene that Shirley is wearing actually belonged to director Billy Wilder's wife.
While she is recuperating, Fran realizes she likes Jack too, but still has feelings for Fred even though he does nothing for her when he learns about her night.
Jack must decided what is most important to him, his new big wig job or the elevator girl. Fran must decide if she wants to be a mistress or a girl friend.
I love this film because I think Jack and Shirley are so wonderful together. They were both so new in their careers. I love the scene when Jack is totally infatuated with Fran and so excited that she is in his apartment and makes her spaghetti with a tennis racket.
