Irma La Douce (4K Restoration)
Directed by Billy Wilder
Irma La Douce (4K Restoration)
Brand new HD master from a 4K scan of the original camera negative! The stars and director of The Apartment reunite in the bawdy, charming and romantic farce about a French policeman (Jack Lemmon, Avanti!) who falls in love with a prostitute (Shirley MacLaine, What a Way to Go!). Meet Nestor (Lemmon), a young man with a very complicated love life. To keep his beloved, the proud and profitable lady of the streets Irma la Douce (MacLaine), off the streets, he disguises himself as Lord X, who immediately becomes Irma’s sole client and means of support. But what’s a jealous boyfriend to do when the illustrious Irma claims that the man she’s really in love with is not the smitten Nestor, but the dotty old Lord himself? The wonderful character actors Lou Jacobi (Cotton Comes to Harlem) and Herschel Bernardi (Love with the Proper Stranger) co-star in this classic comedy co-written and directed by the great Billy Wilder (One, Two, Three). André Previn (Elmer Gantry) won an Oscar for his rousing score. The film also received Oscar nominations for Best Actress in a leading role (MacLaine) and Best Cinematography, Color (Joseph LaShelle, Marty).
