Jack Lemmon: America's Everyman (1996)

*** (out of 4)

Fun, 50-minute documentary taking a look at the career of Jack Lemmon. This documentary features interviews with Walter Matthau, Billy Wilder, Gregory Peck, Charles Durning, Betty Garrett and Kevin Spacey as they discuss what makes Lemmon so great to watch on the screen. Best of all is that we also get an interview with Lemmon who constantly talks about his career, some of his favorite performances and other things like why he wanted to become an actor. If you're a fan of Lemmon then this here is going to be a must see because of getting to hear him discuss his career. Hearing his thoughts on THE APARTMENT, MISTER ROBERTS, SAVE THE TIGER and his work with Matthau is quite priceless and it's also fascinating to learn of his theory that if a part scares him then he must do it. At just 50-minutes there's certainly no way that the film gets into everyone of his films and one wishes that the time was longer but for the most part I think this is a good enough of a way for a fan to be entertained and if you're not a fan you at least will get to see what made Lemmon so special.
