Irma la Douche
Director: Billy Wilder
Run Time: 147 minutes, Certificate: ,
Jack Lemmon is on sparkling form in Billy Wider's songless adaptation of the successful Broadway musical. Jack is a retired gendarme who after falling in love with a Parisian prostitute - played by a radiant Shirley Maclaine - resolves to save her from walking the streets by buying up all her time. Non-stop fun is assured by the reunion of the stars, writers and director of 'The Apartment'. A fitting tribute to the careers of the late, great, director and his favourite leading actor.
