Oscar Madison (Walter Matthau), a divorced, sloppy sports writer invites Felix Unger (Jack Lemmon), a newly separated meticulous photographer, to share his apartment. A hilarious comedy film based on Neil Simon's stage play is the second pairing of ten films that Matthau did with Lemmon. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay Adaptation.
The screening at 3pm on 14 June will be introduced by Film Historian Darrell Buxton.
"An irresistible double act from Lemmon and Matthau." - Timeout
