  The Apartment on Blu-ray
  One of the best, Christmas-wise
  In 1960, following on from the success of their collaboration on Some Like it Hot, director Billy Wilder (Ace in the Hole, Sunset Boulevard) re-teamed with actor Jack Lemmon (The Odd Couple, Glengarry Glen Ross) for what many consider the pinnacle of their respective careers: The Apartment.

Winner of five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay, The Apartment features a wealth of Hollywood's finest talent - on both sides of the camera - at the top of their game - including writer I.A.L Diamond, whose collaboration with Wilder on Some Like It Hot showed the pair had a winning combination. Stars Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine (who would go on to work with Wilder again in Irma La Douce) are given sterling support from Fred MacMurray (Double Indemnity) and Ray Walston (The Sting), in a film that Roger Ebert said showed director Wilder "had become a master at a kind of sardonic, satiric comedy that had sadness at its center".

By turns cynical, heart-warming and hilarious, Wilder’s beautifully made masterpiece now shines like never before in this all-new, 4K-restored edition from Arrow Films. The deluxe collector's Blu-ray includes a making-of featurette, profiles of Lemmon and Wilder, and comes with a 150-page hardcover book featuring new writing on this celebrated movie, set at Christmas-time but unlike any other festive film you’ve ever seen.

On Limited Edition Blu-ray on 11th December 2017 from Arrow Academy.
