Billy Wilder with His Six Oscars, Three from the Previous Night for Writing, Producing and Directing 'The Apartment,' 1961
After the success of ‘Some Like It Hot,’ director Billy Wilder once again joined forces with Jack Lemmon in ‘The Apartment,’ the 1960 comedy-drama that earned an impressive ten (10!) Academy Award nominations, five of which turned into gold.
Written by Wilder and favorite collaborator I.A.L. Diamond, ‘The Apartment’ is a masterfully shot picture based on wistful writing whose value hasn’t diminished in over a half of a century.
