From Billy Wilder, the legendary director of The Lost Weekend, Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17, Witness for the Prosecution and One, Two, Three comes this classic comedy based on the play by Ben Hecht (Notorious) and Charles MacArthur (His Girl Friday) with a screenplay by Wilder and the great I.A.L. Diamond (Irma La Douce). Ruthless newspaper editor Walter Burns (Walter Matthau, Charley Varrick) and his crack ace reporter Hildy (Jack Lemmon, Avanti!) believe together they can cover any story. The only problem is their team is being broken up as Hildy has decided to get married and leave the newspaper business altogether. As Hildy grooms his replacement, his retirement is derailed when the story of the century breaks and all of Chicago is in hot pursuit. The stellar cast includes Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), Carol Burnett (Annie), Vincent Gardenia (Moonstruck), David Wayne (The Three Faces of Eve), Allen Garfield (Busting), Austin Pendleton (My Cousin Vinny), Charles Durning (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), Herb Edelman (The Odd Couple), Martin Gabel (Marnie), Harold Gould (Love and Death) and Dick O’Neill (The Taking of Pelham One Two Three).
