A man tries to rise in his company by letting its executives use his apartment for trysts, but complications and a romance of his own ensue.

Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine star in the movie that manages to be hilarious, cynical, and heart-warming at the same time. Lemon plays C.C. Baxter, a lowly office drone who has a sideline in renting out his apartment for affairs his company bosses are having–with the promise of a rise in the corporate later for Baxter.  But when the headman in charge rents Baxter’s apartment, he learns his mistress is Fran Kubelik, an elevator operator at the massive Manhattan office building and the girl of his dreams. Baxter soon finds himself at a crossroads between his career and the woman he loves.

Director Billy Wilder’s 1960 best picture winner The Apartment is rightfully considered one of the best movies ever made, our own Andy Ross has said, “It’s one of a small number of films I would describe as being perfect.” Arguably the best film Billy Wilder ever made–and that’s saying something! The Apartment is an undeniable masterpiece.
