I liked this short doc-Inside 'The Apartment'-on the movie's DVD special features section
Watched this extra on The Apartment DVD after the movie itself. It tells of Billy Wilder's getting the idea after seeing the film Brief Encounter and also discovering the scandal concerning the affair between an agent named Jennings Lang and actress Joan Bennett who was married to producer Walter Wanger at the time. Nice comments from surviving players Shirley MacLaine, Hope Holiday, Edie Adams, and Johnny Seven as well as the sons of screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond and Jack Lemmon (who resembles his dad). Very informative concerning the era and some of the controversy concerning the material presented during this period. So on that note, Inside 'The Apartment' gets a recommendation.
