Jack Lemmon

The great comedic actor Jack Lemmon has always meant a lot to me; Some Like It Hot was the first film I truly fell in love with which made me seek out more Billy Wilder and discover a world of Hollywood masterpieces. Since my early teens, Jack Lemmon was my guy, not an obsessive crush (see Ewan McGregor and Matthew Perry) but a genuine bringer of joy and cinematic warmth, so it meant a lot to write about him for the bfi.org.uk on what would have been his 93rd Birthday.
