"The Apartment" (1960)


Forget "Mad Men". This is the real version of sexual politics and dalliances in Kennedy-era corporate America...made AT THE TIME. Jack Lemmon plays a hapless drone at a mega insurance company in love with sweet elevator operator Shirley MacLaine...problem is, she's in love with big boss (and heel) Fred MacMurray. Surprisingly sad and funny, it's director Billy Wilder's love letter written with an acid pen.
