Everybody has their favorite holiday film; the one they must see before the old year ends and the new year begins. For me that favorite is The Apartment, starring a very young and bewildered Jack Lemmon and a very young and lovely Shirley MacLaine. True, this is not your usual holiday fare, full of happy families and wrapped presents under the tree, but there is a feeling of love and redemption about it that happily triumphs, despite the machinations of the evil boss Fred MacMurry, before his bland and boring My Three Sons days. And no matter how many times I watch Jack Lemmon strain spaghetti through a tennis racket, I still smile.
At the library we own The Apartment and a quite a few other holiday films; surely your favorite is among them! Check them out at the library!
