Jack Lemmon along with Kim Novak were likely the last two great stars groomed at Columbia and both became giant superstars. Lemmon and Novak would work together in Phfft, Bell Book and Candle, Notorious Landlady. Jack Lemmon while at Columbia worked with Rita Hayworth, Judy Holiday and Doris Day. A great comedic actor. Rarely has a star had a string of hits as Mr. Lemmon did in the late 50's and early 60's: Mr. Roberts, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Irma La Douce and Blake Edwards scalding drama Days Of Wine and Roses. Jack Lemmon in his great career worked with Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, James Cagney, Natalie Wood, Henry Fonda, Ann Margret, Michael Douglas, Jane Fonda, and most notably Walter Matthau. Jack Lemmon was also very close personally and professionally with legendary Director Billy Wilder.
Every role played by Jack Lemmon contained a great amount of the Everyman aura. His enthusiasm combined with deep emotion made observers feel they were directly involved with his character. Sadly my father died only five days before Mr. Lemmon passed and one day after the terrific Carroll OConnor died . . . A very sad week and year for me and my family . . . I miss all three gentlemen, especially my great Dad!!!
An amazing actor
Jack Lemmon is one of my favorite actor. I have loved him in every movie I watched him in.
I am a new fan of Jack Lemmon and I couldn't say enough good things about him. I think he was outrageously talented and had a heart of gold. He was intelligent and very cute. He should have won an Oscar for Some Like It Hot. He was a bright star. Rest in peace, sweetheart.
The best "average joe"
All of his work is great. Being only 20, It's hard for me to get my "hip" friends to watch old movies, but they all enjoy "Some like it Hot", "The Apartment", and "The Fortune Cookie." Halfway through the movie they're like "Oh, the guy from Grumpy Old Men." Kids these days!
I love Jack
Jack is one of my favourite actors of all time!
Jack is a sweetheart
Jack is a sweetheart. A gentleman. A truly wonderful person.
