C. C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) is a lonely office drone for an insurance company in New York City. Four different company managers take turns commandeering Baxter’s apartment for their various extramarital liaisons. Unhappy with the situation, but unwilling to challenge them directly, he juggles their conflicting demands while hoping to catch the eye of fetching elevator operator Miss Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine).
Meanwhile the neighbors in the apartment building, a medical doctor and his wife, assume Baxter is a “good time Charlie” who gets a different woman drunk every night. Baxter accepts their criticism rather than reveal the truth.
Starring Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray. MGM/UA; Directed by Billy Wilder. Black and White; Not Rated; 125 minutes; 1960.
