One of director Billy Wilder's best-loved and most acerbic works, THE APARTMENT stars Lemmon (SOME LIKE IT HOT) as C C Baxter, an office clerk who curries favour with the executives in his office by giving them the key to his small apartment for the odd afternoon dalliance.
Among them is his callous boss, J D Sheldrake (MacMurray, THE CAINE MUTINY), who Baxter eventually learns is using his place to sleep with Miss Kubelik (MacLaine, TERMS OF ENDEARMENT), the sweet elevator operator the clerk has loved from afar.
When Sheldrake coldly dumps the vulnerable young woman, she tries to commit suicide, but is saved by the intervention of Baxter.
Lemmon and MacLaine both give career-making performances and MacMurray is truly memorable as the blandly smiling snake.
