Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder Classic Movies



Filed under : About.com, Other

Over the course of seven films together, actor Jack Lemmon and director Billy Wilder made several unforgettable pictures, two of which are certifiably iconic. Wilder was already well established as one of Hollywood’s great directors when he began to work with Lemmon, who was mainly a supporting player before being turned into a leading man by the director. The Lemmon-Wilder partnership was also notable for creating the first pairing between another great duo, Lemmon and Walter Matthau, both of whom made two movies with Wilder. While their best films were made early on, there’s no doubt that Lemmon and Wilder were one of the greatest actor-director partnerships of all time.
