Employee Picks: Nick

The Apartment

Directed by
Billy Wilder

The Apartment posterInsurance worker C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) lends his Upper West Side apartment to company bosses to use for extramarital affairs. When his manager Mr. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray) begins using Baxter’s apartment in exchange for promoting him, Baxter is disappointed to learn that Sheldrake’s mistress is Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine), the elevator girl at work whom Baxter is interested in himself. Soon Baxter must decide between the girl he loves and the advancement of his career.

Just the third Best Picture-winner we’ve ever shown, Nick’s Employee Pick is a timelessly sophisticated comedy of heartache from legendary writer/director Billy Wilder.

“This essential Billy Wilder film smoothly combines trenchant social observation with hilarious comedy.” – Austin Chronicle
