Hello World!

For the past few months, Dutch public television has been airing all the old Jack Lemmon films from the 1960s, and I've been really enjoying them. 'The Apartment', which I'd never seen before, quickly made it into my film top-10, and yesterday they showed 'Irma La Douce', which was as enjoyable as ever. They're both fairly slow films with few locations, but they're perfect to watch after midnight, which is when they're being shown here. I just wish Shirley MacLaine had made more films together with Lemmon, because the two are great together - there are certainly few modern on-screen pairings who can compare to them.

Maybe I should just have been born several decades earlier - I wouldn't have minded getting to see all these films first come out, and of course would have been able to see the Original Series as well, when it first aired. On the other hand, I would probably have gone bankrupt then - at the rate I'm going through old '60s movies now, half my disposable income would have been spent on going to the cinema then.
