30 Day Movie Challenge: Favourite Film

13 06 2011

Not knowing what to do after the 30 Day Music Challenge, I decided to take a friend’s advice to do another challenge on facebook.  The first thing I thought of and searched for was a movie challenge of some sort and lo and behold, the 30 Day Movie Challenge popped up.

First up: the favourite film.  Well, as difficult as it is to choose one, I also find that my favourite film changes every now and then, what with my mood and with new movies I watch. Maybe it’s because I wrote about it in a short story I wrote a week or so ago, but I went with the 1960 Billy Wilder classic The Apartment.  Jack Lemmon plays a guy who lends his apartment to his bosses — they get to sleep around and he gets on their approval and promotions.  He likes Shirley MacLaine’s character, an elevator operator working in the same building.  It’s clever, cute, and actually romantic, unlike today’s rom-coms.

As per the rules, here’s a clip from the film.
